We come off season. Many breakfast places are already closed. This is one place thats open. There's many bad reviews, but keep it simple. Order eggs with cheese and toast. And some bacon. It'll hit the hungry spot. Don't order fancy stuff- this is a diner, just be glad it's open when everything else is closed. The bad: Plastic plates-... More

Nothing special, but exactly what we were looking for. Classic American Diner food for a very good price! Service was very fast and friendly. Strongly recommended.

We found this place by accident on our way out of town. Family wanted breakfast for the long drive home. The big breakfast was just the right portion for me and the rest of the family easily found something to eat. Prices were reasonable and we had no problems with service. Will definitely stop in again next year.

My family and I ate here our first night in the Dells and it was ranked #3 and not that there was anything wrong with the food, but it was just average, nothing special. I would eat here again but it would not be my first choice.

The food and experience here used to be great back when I was a kid but now that I've had other places around the dells, Howies just doesn't have a WOW favor. Don't get me wrong the food isn't bad but it's nothing you can't get somewhere else.

I really expected a WOW experience based on prior reviews. The food is simply average. The service was good and the prices reasonable but it was certainly not a WOW for my tastebuds.
