“Yummmm!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We ate here for a Saturday morning brunch...it was delicious and filling. All you can eat, except it was family-style (no buffet). So if you want more pancakes, just ask for more pancakes! A bit pricey at just over $10 per adult, but definitely worth it to try once.

“You gotta go!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Fun place, great atmosphere and food! Staff was friendly and attentive in the resturant. Very impressed watching how well the dining room was cleaned after the breakfast shift. Great, reasonably priced gift shop, although the "older" staff could show a little more appreciation rather than anoyance when a customer is purchasing several items. Also noticed was how the "regular" staff treated the new "seasonal" hires...whether they worked there for 10 years or 10 days, they deserved respect! It doesn't make you look better when you belittle others!

“Paul Bunyan's - Yum!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Always loved Paul Bunyan's as a kid, and like it even more as an adult. Everything is served "family style" with authentic down-home cookin'. Love the fried chicken for supper and the awesome flapjacks for breakfast. You will NEVER leave PB's hungry!
