To make things easy on you, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Wisconsin Dells restaurants open in Winter, so you can get started on enjoying all our wonderful town has to offer!
Dells Pizza Lab
First up on our list is Dells Pizza Lab, which is practically a Wisconsin Dells institution! Located off state highway 13, this modern pizza joint is nearby Spring Brook Resort, making it a great winter dining choice as it’s never a far drive. Offering a selection of pizzas, along with vegetarian and vegan options, it’s always been a popular place among locals and visitors alike.

This place is causal and family friendly, while being clean and contemporary. Don’t skip the cannoli for dessert!
Triple Play Sports Bar and Grill
Next up is another casual place, but it deserves a spot on the list nonetheless! This unassuming sports bar is located near highway 16 and has a long history as a place for friends and families to gather. The menu is locally sourced whenever possible, and features and impressive lineup of bar food, sandwiches, and burgers. You’ll find craft brews from Wisconsin’s finest breweries, as well as a robust drink list. You must try the cheese curds, a Wisconsin classic! Fish fry Fridays is also a popular date, and as a bonus the grill is located just near a snowmobile trail, allowing you to easily get your winter recreation on!
MACS- Macaroni and Cheese Shop
Calling all mac and cheese lovers! A great spot for kids or adults, this menu boasts amazing mac and cheese creations, from the classic standard to unique creations, such as their Chicken Bacon Ranch Mac, or their Philly Mac. Besides tens of macs to choose from, you’ll also find a selection of melts, salads, and a kid’s menu. It’s a smart and tasty way to warm up in the winter, and the dining space is modern and sleek. This is guaranteed to be a mac and cheese like you’ve never had before, and as a great bonus it’s located just near the River Walk, giving you a chance to walk off that meal, if it’s not too cold outside!
High Rock Café
Also located just near the river walk and the excitement of the shops of Broadway, this café is a pleasant place to grab a bite and features an upper level with huge floor to ceiling windows that allow you to look out over the streets of Wisconsin Dells—a great way to imitate outdoor dining in the winter! The vibe is casual, but the quality and presentation of the menu items is top-notch, and the list of entrees features a selection of sandwiches, wraps, tacos, and entrees such as the Slammin’ Salmon, a honey soy roasted salmon with sweet potato, seasonal veggies, and cucumber wasabi dressing. It’s a foodie’s dream, in a low-key setting. Don’t forget to try the non-alcoholic sparkling lavender lemonade!
