Top Kid-Approved Restaurants in Wisconsin Dells

Duck Boat, you’re going to have to stop and eat eventually.

While the Dells certainly has no shortage of unique eateries, it can be tricky to find something that everyone agrees on – especially with little ones in tow.  Look no further, because these four kid-approved restaurants are sure to please the entire brood!

Bobbers Island Grill

The thing about kids in restaurants is that they don’t always like to sit still. Luckily, Bobbers has a spacious outdoor patio and a sand-filled play area for kids to work off their excess energy before sitting down for a meal.

The American- and Caribbean-inspired cuisine is sure to please parents with options like tequila lime shrimp skewers and barbecue jerked pork sandwiches, while the picky eaters can order from the kids menu – but come on, you’re never too old for chicken strips, right? When you’re ready for dessert, walk on over and grab a cone at the on-site Two Scoops ice cream stand – you won’t even have to cross the street to get there!

MACS Macaroni and Cheese Shop 

What’s not to love about the ultimate comfort food? Macaroni and cheese is one of those foods that almost everyone can agree on, especially when it’s made with delicious Wisconsin cheeses!

Mac’s classic mac and cheese is served up fresh in a hot skillet and comes loaded with cheddar, mozzarella and a sprinkle of breadcrumbs for a delicious crunch. Beyond the kid-approved classic mac, the menu is full of unique combinations like the Memphis Mac with barbecue pulled pork and the Chipotle Mac with a spicy twist. Whatever you choose, we’re sure you’ll leave feeling full and satisfied!

Pizza Lab

Much like mac and cheese, even the pickiest of eaters can find common ground in pizza. Agreeing on what toppings to get may be another story entirely, but fear not – Dells Pizza Lab has a solution! You can customize your very own 11-inch pizza with dozens of fresh sauces, cheeses, and toppings to choose from.

Thanks to the stone-hearth oven, each pizza only takes about five minutes to bake, so no need to worry about little ones getting impatient.

Paul Bunyan’s Northwoods Cook Shanty

Breakfast at Paul Bunyan’s is an experience for the whole family – in fact, the whole meal is served family style! Entering the rustic shanty is like being transported to the heart of the Northwoods. The long tables and wooden benches make it feel like you’re in an authentic logging camp as bountiful plates of eggs, sausage and flapjacks make their way to the table.

Kids of all ages will absolutely love the freshly baked buttermilk donuts that Paul Bunyan’s is famous for. (When we say famous, we mean it – you can even order them by the dozen on their website!)

Breakfast is an all-you-can-eat affair, so there’s no excuse for leaving on an empty stomach! And kid’s prices are based on age, so you don’t have to worry about getting your money’s worth.
