Paul Bunyans's Cook Shanty - Wisconsin Dells

Wisconsin Dells


No reservations are required for hungry visitors to the Wisconsin Dells Paul Bunyan’s, which boasts seating for up to 450 people. This authentic log beam built restaurant has been in business since 1958. And we’re serving the family style, all-you-can-eat meals which has kept us popular among tourists and locals.

For more than 50 years Paul Bunyan’s Cook Shanty has been one of Wisconsin Dells’ dining favorites. The atmosphere of the ole time 1890′s logging camps starts right from the parking lot where a giant, wooden lumberjack sign welcomes you in the front door. Browse through the gift shop as you make your way to the dining room entrance. Artifacts, fixtures, tools, and historical logging photos adorn three golden pine log dining rooms. Antique lanterns illuminate red and white checkerboard tables big enough to accommodate large groups, yet cozy enough for singles or couples.

Don’t let the stacks of cars deter you from pulling into our over-sized parking lot. We’ve got plenty of room for you and your guests. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, our menu, service and style are the ideal memory makers. Don’t forget to grab a photo by the 15 foot statue strutting in front of the building. Kids love it, and so do the adults.
