Buffalo Phil’s Pizza and Grille and Knucklehead’s in Wisconsin Dells

Wisconsin Dells can be almost as overwhelming as Walt Disney World. Since all the resorts usually have a dining package and can get a little expensive eating on-site the entire trip, here is a full review of our favorite off-property eatery with it’s own connected amusement park for when you need to get out and explore more of Lake Delton.

Knuckleheads and Buffalo Phil’s

Knuckleheads is an indoor theme park attached to Buffalo Phil’s restaurant and offers hours of indoor fun including a trampoline park and bowling.

The Virtual Reality games vary from pirate’s serving up food to an alien invasion game to a dance competition. Donning a headset transports you to a virtual world. It’s especially fun to be a spectator, watching the odd movements of those playing!

The 7-D Theater is a full family fun choice. We went with a miner game which was an interactive experience with full-motion seats, wind, sound, and have fun blasting bad guys. Even though the 3D glasses mess with my own vision glasses, it’s still really fun and mostly manageable.

The jumping pillow made our younger kid jump for joy, another big hit. You must purchase wristbands  in a variety of packages including the trampoline park, bowling, arcade, and all the other attractions for a few hours or for a full day. Knuckleheads has bowling, a trampoline park, some theme park style rides for smaller kids, an arcade, and bumper cars. Birthday parties are popular here, too!

Buffalo Phil’s Pizza and Grille is the best spot in the Dells to bring the family to enjoy great food and a fun time! This family-friendly restaurant has trains which deliver the food and drinks to your table. The kids delight in the bubble fish train which comes around and blows bubbles out across the room.

Train delivered food is never dull.

LEGO® builds on display at Buffalo Phil’s all around the building keep kids curiously checking out the place. This keeps waiting for food fun (even though service has always been quite speedy!)

Food quality and portions are excellent. Entertainment is the theme of the entire atmosphere, and just through the connected indoor hall is Knuckleheads! You cannot miss with this fun and food combo!
