Visitor Tips and News About Paul Bunyan's Cook Shanty
Gets packed as people head home on Sunday mornings -- get there close to opening time on Sunday or prepare to wait.[Nleipski, 04/16/2012]
Don't forget the donuts at breakfast -- hot, fresh and delicious!![Coby, 07/21/2011]
This is a family dining restaurant with a giant lumberjack outside that welcomes you. The inside has a North Woods atmosphere.
The food is served family style, or as Paul Bunyan would say, "Lumberjack style." The restaurant is most famous for their all-you-can-eat breakfast of flapjacks, sausage links, ham and scramble eggs with fried potatoes.
Lunch and dinners are also served "camp style" -- chicken with fresh baked breads. This is a tourist attraction, not a fine dining establishment, just simple good food. Most of the staff are college kids or teenagers working for the summer.[Bill Bansemer, 07/23/2009]
We ate there back when it was Bunyan's Cook Shanty; a great place to feed busloads of tourists (seats 450). Nothing subtle though....
