A few weeks ago the three of us took a trip up to the Great Wolf Lodge in the Wisconsin Dells for the weekend. (I actually won a 1 night stay from Madison Mom’s Blog, so we decided to make it two nights to make the hauling and gathering of everything that you need to travel and stay over night with a baby worth the trip.) While the weather wasn’t particularly cold yet when we were there, one of the things that we really enjoy about staying at the indoor waterpark resorts in the Wisconsin Dells is that there are restaurants in the building, so you don’t have to get all bundled up to leave the building when it is cold outside!
For dinner one of the nights we were there, we ate at the Lodge Wood Fired Grill. We figured it would get pretty crowded with families that had the same idea we did, so we ate a little bit earlier than we normally would to avoid the rush. The restaurant is definitely kid friendly – which it practically has to be since it is located in a waterpark hotel, right next to the waterpark. Their menu is pretty diverse too – sandwiches, salads, burgers, steaks, probably something for everyone.
For dinner, I chose the Crispy Chicken Sandwich. (I got it plain, but it does normally come with all of the fixins) It was not anything particularly special, but it was a good sandwich and fries.
The husband had the Create Your Own Lodge Burger with cheddar cheese, onion straws, and bacon. He said that his wasn’t anything special, but it was a good meal.
As you can see from the photos, both of them were fairly large portions, too. Though, if you have been running around a waterpark all day, you probably need a big and hearty meal to fill you up!
Taste: A-, not spectacular, but not bad.
Cost: A, not bad at all considering the decent quality, and large portions. I think our meal ended up around $25 total for the two of us.
Would I go there again? I’m not sure. I wouldn’t make a special trip, but if we were staying at the Great Wolf Lodge again, I think I will consider it as an option.
