Review of Pizza Pub - Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin

by StevenHelmer

My family had dinner at this restaurant this past weekend. Read to find out what I thought of it.

Business Description: Restaurant located at 1455 Wisconsin Dells Parkway in Wisconsin Dells, WI serving pizza, burgers, subs and pasta. My family ate dinner here on Saturday, June 27 while taking a weekend-long vacation at one of the Wisconsin Dells resorts and staying at a motel a short distance up the street from this restaurant.


Our decision to eat at Pizza Pub this past weekend while taking a weekend vacation in Wisconsin Dells was based primarily on the restaurant's location. We were staying in a motel a short distance from the restaurant and, not wanting to walk any more than we had to (or drive), figured it was the best choice. As it turns out, this would have been a restaurant that would have been worth driving to.

When we first walked into the restaurant, there were two things I was really impressed about. The first of these was the fact we were able to be seated quickly. This was a major problem for us the last time we tried to eat dinner at one of the local restaurants and, with two kids in tow, the fact we could sit down quickly was definitely appreciated.

The second thing I loved right away was the atmosphere and layout of the restaurant. Their partially enclosed booths gave us a sense of privacy and intimacy and everyone in the family loved it. My oldest daughter, in particular, was fascinated both by the wooden enclosure and the decorations on the wall in our booth.

We actually elected not to order pizza (though the pizzas we saw being carried past us admittedly looked good). Instead, I had a meatball sub, my wife had an Italian sub and the kids had pasta from the kids' menu. The food was excellent and came in large portions that were perfect for having leftovers to heat up later at the motel.

The one thing that really surprised me about the food was the price. Since Wisconsin Dells is a giant tourist trap, most of the restaurants (and pretty much everything else) are overpriced. That wasn't the case with this restaurant. The food was reasonably priced and, again, offered decent quality, making it worth the money.

Another thing that really impressed me about Pizza Pub was the service. We had a friendly server who made sure we were taken care of and the food came to our table much faster than I was expecting, especially with it being somewhat busy. This, again, was something I appreciated because, by that point, my kids were getting pretty hungry.

In fact, my only real regret about this restaurant experience is not saving room for dessert. And, after scanning their dessert menu, that's a mistake I would be sure not to make again the next time we were to dine here.

Final Opinion

As I mentioned, this is a restaurant I picked because of location. However, after dining here, it is a place I would definitely give my business to again, whether it was next door to my motel or if I had to drive across town. If you are in Wisconsin Dells, I would recommend it.

My Grade: A

StevenHelmer, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
This situation appears to be perhaps common, perhaps typical of Wisconsin. Everywhere that has higher prices always has space for something like Pizza Pub, lower prices with the same fast service and friendly atmosphere.

A sub is something that I eyeball with care since I find that they can be or become soggy quickly. So it really says something about the quality that you and you wife were as happy with your fare as your daughters with theirs.

What were the drinks like?

A variety of things ranging from ice cream to cake.

What DID they have for dessert? I sometimes find great desserts at fast food places.

Just goes to show, you should eat dessert first. Of course you could have brought some back for a late night snack!
