Just got back from Wisconsin Dells and thought I'd share my impressions of Moosejaw.

For starters, I liked the atmosphere, the food and the beer (reviews to follow in the beer review section).

I was concerned when we got there after work and were told we had to wait 25+ minutes for a table. I was ready to leave but the waitress said we could eat at the bar if we wanted. She then explained there were three bars; one on the main floor, one downstairs with the games and one upstairs at the brewery. Bingo. We walked upstairs and sat right down at the bar.

The bartendress was quite knowledgeable about each and every beer. She could discuss their tastes and how they were brewed. She talked about the brewmistress and her seven-year tenure brewing their beers. She was generous in letting us taste-test some of the beers before putting in our first and second orders for pints.

There was a decent menu. My buddy had the sausage calzone, which was was atypical in that it had a puffy, high crust. I was drawn to the make-your-own pasta and I was able to choose my pasta and sauce types (penne and garlic butter), my meat choice, and three or more vegetables for the pasta. The pasta included a salad and bread and was reasonably priceed.

The food arrived quickly and both of us enjoyed our meals and the beer: So much so that we came back two days later and had the same meals again but with different beers.

The atmosphere upstairs is really nice with huge pine logs making up the walls and rafters. There were 18 brewing and fermenting vessels in the room.

I really enjoyed the experience and with a good tip, the total bill for two was about $47.

I'd go again.

Food was amazing. The beer was eh. Liked the Amber the best. The rest was drinkable, but nothing special.

There probably isn't too much to say about Moosejaw that hasn't already benn said before. This is a pizza place. Midwestern style pizza to be exact, but thankfully they don't party cut it. And, since this is the Dells it's packed full of tourists and kids and everyone's eating pizza.
That said, the pizza isn't all that bad. It's not all that good either, but the sauce is sweet and they load it with cheese. I've had worse.
The beer is about the same as the pizza. Fairly generic and brewed for the masses. It's unexciting enough that I didn't even bother filling my growler even though fills only cost $11 and I had brought my growler with me.
I will say my server was a really good guy. I might not have liked Moosejaw much, but my sever was attentive and was willing to get me a sample of whatever I wanted.
In the end Moosejaw is what it is: a pizza pub in a tourist town. I didn't expect much and I didn't get much in return.

When one is in the Dell's...one must visit the Moosejaw on principle. The brewery is located on one of the main strips in a big log cabin type building. The atmosphere is hit a little...not because of the decor...is that it is more for family night out after a long day in the Dells. The quality of the food and beer was both very good. The service was quite attentive and happy to help. The selection for both food and beer was decent....although it is a pizza place. So I had the pizza, pan style and it was very good. I had a 10 pc sampler, one pint, two adult entres, three kid meals & drinks, and two appetizers....total was $100....seemed a bit much for mid-Wisconsin.

Visited this past Tuesday with my wife and kids. Good family atmosphere including moose hats for everyone. Large menu. Pizza was decent and beer bread with honey butter was pretty good. Of course, I made the family go so I could try the beers. I wasn't a big fan of the honey ale but found the rest of my flight to be quite drinkable. If you are looking for an intimate craft beer taproom, this is NOT your place. But for a large family friendly vacation spot that also makes their own beer, I was overall pleased.
