Moosejaw is NOT impressive. A previous reviewer said it best when he compared this place to a Chuck E Cheese's that brews its own beer; tons of families and screaming kids, even around the bar area.

The place is huge (typical for the Dells). Three levels of faux log cabin-esque décor with various taxidermy strewn about. It feels like the Leinie's lodge without the canoes. None of the staff are educated regarding the beer, and none seem to even drink beer for themselves (one bartender told this BA that the only 'dark' option on the menu was the amber!).

The beers themselves were all similar in character, which means that either the same yeast strain is being used for all of them, or there is some discrepancy in the brewing process that gives all of them the same, caramel-like character (bad lines, perhaps?). The offerings were all standard, with nothing standing out as good or unique.

The food was decent, but not impressive. It was quite clear that tables should eat and leave in a timely manner in order to maximize turnover and profits. That, coupled with the fact that probably three quarters of the people in the place were under 13 years old makes this a bad stop for beer.

Bottom line: skip this place if you are looking for a good brewpub.

2011: In other Moosejaw related news, Moosejaw brewmaster Jamie Martin (Baertsch) blows whistle on a homebrewing charity event in Baraboo: http://www.wiscnews.com/baraboonewsrepublic/news/local/article_7f16d998-8d88-11e0-8384-001cc4c03286.html

"Brew at the Barn returns June 5 to the The Barn Restaurant and Bar in Baraboo; and event organizer Christin Harding had planned to offer home brews for the public to sample while raising money for the Wisconsin Multiple Sclerosis Society. The event also was slated to serve as a home brew competition...

Harding's plans changed after a concerned citizen, Jamie Martin, contacted various law enforcement agencies regarding the legality of the event. In an email Martin sent to the News Republic, Martin stated Harding was avoiding taxes, violating health codes and endangering The Barn Restaurant and Bar's liquor license."


Very uncool, Jaime Martin. Not planning to patronize Moosejaw anymore, based on the actions of their brewmaster. I'd encourage others to do the same, if you care about homebrewers' rights in Wisconsin.

2007: 3.75 B
Airy hunting lodge meets taxidermist's wet dream...the beer played second fiddle to the wholesome family dining element. Arrived for lunch, plenty of seating midday. We were seated under a collosal moose head and the 3-tier antler chandeliers. Everything was fashioned from wood, even the tap handles in the bar were stubby tree branch segments.

First thing to arrive was the 6 point beer sampler, it was served on a log slice carved with inset circles and numbers for the various beers. The beers were also ordered by number on the menu (12 total). Out of the 6, only the Dunkel was pleasing enough to order a pint of. The Weisse was soapy, Amber: funky, Kilbourn Hop Ale: syrupy, and the Pilsner was average. The Stout was ok, with a good roast coffee character, but not especially memorable.

The table ordered personal size pizzas, which all got the thumbs up. Bruschetta appetizer was a little oily with more garlic than tomato.

None of the beers were exciting enough to take a growler of, but i'd return again to try more options with a pizza. On a side note, the delivery cars are eye-catching, but travelling behind one staring at a moose's hindquarters isn't the best way to advertise a restaurant.

I'm gonna give this a half point boost in atmosphere because its the Dells! Being there for the first time on a bachelor party doesn't hurt either. Had to lay down some food and drinks before the trip to Cruisin' Chubbies.

Anyways, log cabin exterior, massive place inside. Tons of seating area, multiple rooms etc. . . shit ton of misbehaved kids with single mothers and grandmothers it seemed. Git rid of the kids and the atmosphere is almost perfect.

Beers all have the same taste, bland feel, same yeast strain. Nothing hoppy, nothing thick, nothing over the top, all middle of the road easy access beers. Staff tries to sound educated, but comes off extremely lacking. The pale is not super bitter nor hoppy. The stout is not super high in alcohol etc. . .

Food is pretty bland, overcooked. Have had the elk burger and pizza before.

The food was OK here. Not much of a Pub atmosphere, as it is very family friendly. The beer was lacking...seemed lifeless, and flat. We had a the flight to start. The summer wheat, and mixed berry were the best, of the lame bunch IMHO.
The place is very big, so if the parking lot looks pretty full, you still may not have much of a wait. The food selection was large, but quality was just OK. I think the place is trying to hard to be everything, for everybody, and is coming across as just so so to people. I would give it another chance at some point.

One of the great Dells tourist traps. You can tell the traps because they all have the same fake log-cabin decor the rest of the town has.

Brew kettles upstairs and visible is kinda cool. Wait-staff is clueless about the beers. When I order a beer by it's name they ask me what number I want. WTF! is it that hard to learn a little bit about the seven beers you offer? They knew a little about the food offered, but not much. I do have to say that the employee pool in the area is reflected in the service you get.

Food however, was good. I had the "moose wings" one time in and they are like a hot buffalo wing with a little bit of honey butter in the sauce instead of regular butter. Sounds funny, but they taste awesome. Have had the pizza and it's acceptable but not great. Coconut shrimp were OK served with an orange ginger sauce. Not too shabby.

Beers I have had are hit and miss, not terrible but...I think they need to expand the horizons a bit. Seeing the sames selections every season gets old. The ones I have had for the most part were pretty tasty.

Worth a stop if you're with the kids, they'll like the HUGE friggin' arcade in the basement.

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.

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.

Stopped in on the way home from a family get-away to Northern Bay Resort on Castle Rock Lake, about a half-hour North of the Dells.

Atm: A giant log cabin-inspired edifice with multiple bar and seating areas downstairs and the brewing equipment upstairs. Taxidermy abounds. I chose to sit at the big, main U-shaped bar with my GF and family. The place was absolutely packed with your typical Dells crowd of rowdy kids and exasperated parents, but it was pleasant enough at the bar.

Service: attentive and friendly, not the most knowledgable about the beer itself, but eager to fill you back up at least.

Selection/Quality: 8-10 beers on tap including one on nitro (usually the stout). Not sure about the bottle selection, I'm not about to insult a brewpub by not ordering their beer. I tried a 6 beer sampler flight including their nitro stout, a couple APAs, dunkel lager, weissbier and amber. All of them were solid, the Hop Ale, Dunkel Lager and Nitro Stout stood out. Nothing outstanding, but better than I'd have expected from the Dells.

Food: just sampled some appetizers (quesadillas, wings, bruscetta) - standard pub fare, again solid but nothing outstanding.

Overall, not a bad little place to escape to sleezy/cheesy Dells scene for a few brews. Sad to see I missed the recommended Blonde Bock. Worth a stop if you're stuck in the area.

stopped in Moosejaw on the way back from an eastern excursion about 45 minutes past the dells - had been here once, but only for lunch

Welcome to the Wisconsin Dells - a tourist trap of dynamic proportions. Why my beloved Chicagoans get suckered into draining their paycheck in this playland is beyond me.

The Moosejaw fits the bill of the area - it takes on a northwoods theme, huge log cabin exterior, giant moose out front. There are company cars with massive moose on top. The inside carries on the northwoods motif. The clientele on this given day was almost certainly all tourists - i counted a number of people with multicolored wristbands (often marking your stay at a local indoor waterpark).

Beerlist was rather brief - 8-10 taps. The one that jumped out was a dark coffee stout, which i actually really liked.

Service was fine, but no beer knowledge in the vicinity.

We ordered a thin crust pizza and it was pretty tasty - menu consists primarily of pizza and bar food.

If you get stuck in the Dells, this is probably where you need to end up.

This joint is like a giant three-level log cabin with what looks like the remains of a wildlife park on the wall. It was beyond packed when I got there (7PM on a weekday). It had to be a firecode violation; this place was wall-to-wall people including the stairs. I was by myself and still couldn't find a spot at one of the three bars. Eventually I got a seat at the basement bar, surrounded by little kids playing video games. Yikes. I decided just to order quesodillas to expidite the process, and it's a good thing because it still took 45 minutes for those to arrive. The bartenders were working their butts off though, so I'll still give service a 4. The beer was good (I had a kilbourn hop ale), but this place definitely seems more like a family vacation restaurant than a microbrewery. I bet it's much different during the off-season and when you can actually grab a spot at the main bar.

This is the Dell's after all and this place does market to that audience but it wasn't bad. I was suspecting pint glasses with moose antlers or something but the cherry beer actually had its own glassware, a stemmed flute.

The beer was served a bit too cold so a lot of the flavor was hidden unless you let it warm up a bit. One a Thursday night in Feb. this place was pretty full. With about 1/3 of the people drinking BMC from the bottle, 1/3 drinking Moosejaw beers, and the other 1/3 drinking random neon colored cocktails. They had a decent selection of styles and some home made sodas aswell.

The food was a bit dull and underwhelming pub fare. Mozzarella sticks were rolled in tortillas and fried served with cold marinara sauce. Elk burger was from a frozen patty and fish sandwich was not bad.

When in the dells this is the place to go for craft beer. I guess.

Cool place...three bars on three levels with attentive barkeeps at every stop...an awesome beer can collection downstairs....the bathrooms allow you to gaze out the window into the back parking lot at chicks in bikinis getting out of their cars to visit while you piss...that was pretty cool...a good variety of beers and they were all solid and clean but not outstanding...Didn't order any food....the only thing that pissed me off was the bartender filled a couple of pitchers with beer foam while he filled my growler..and then instead of offering it to us he dumped it out....Big Hugey even asked him about it and he acted like a dumbshit and said "What pitchers??"...I still left him a decent tip but that kind of put a sour taste in my mouth..

Overall I would definitely recommend this as a stop if you are in the area....not the greatest beer in the world but it is solid and the atmosphere is pretty cool.

I happen to think this is one of the best restaurants in the Wisconsin Dells. The beers are varied, and plentiful. Get the sampler of beers though, well worth the value. But enough to make you very drunk. (or well, if you're, me, definitely under the table!). The food is good too. I just am not sure that it's the greatest pizza available. I'd almost try something other than the pizza even though it is a pizza company. Maybe it's because I eat pizza enough that I'm picky.

Otherwise the service is quite good, and other menu items are stellar. My husband had the fish and really enjoyed it. The price of food is reasonable.

Avoid peak times because this place gets packed! I stopped in midafternoon on a recent Saturday visit to the area and benefited greatly from the subdued atmosphere and readily available service.

Moosejaw is huge. There are three bars and several eating areas. The whole place is decorated in fo-up-north. No less than 47,000 elk, moose, and deer were slaughtered to construct the chandeliers alone. I heard a rumor that Moosejaw was number thirty-six on PETA Wisconsin’s list of places to “liberate.”

Beer selection consists of 9 taps, and one nitro. Bottles appear to be limited to ML and BL. The best beers I’ve had there are the Nut Brown and the Hop Ale, which uses locally grown hops. The Pils is also very good. Growlers are available for $13 or $10 if it’s a refill.

The staff are great but when this place gets busy service slacks quite a bit. Food is above average pub fare and pizza. Prices are pretty good, especially for the Dells.

Family friendly so you can take the kids and fill up your growler to enjoy back at the water park.

Stopped in here while on vacation with my girlfriends family. I knew we'd be stopping in the Dells for the weekend and decided to look up good places to eat and grab a beer.

The decor is definitely unique and inviting. Everything fits together very well and looks pretty good. The service was good, we got everything we ordered very quickly, and it was all as ordered. We must have walked in at just the right time, because they sat us down immediately, but when driving by later, the line was way out the door.

The beer is decent, nothing to drool over, but still nice to get a locally brewed beer when on vacation. They had a decent selection to choose from, but besides their beers all I saw was Miller Lite. We all ordered pizza and enjoyed it all, but the personal pizzas were smaller than expected.

Overall, definitely a good place to stop if you're looking for a local brew and some decent pizza.

This is one of the few options, if not the only one in the Dells area (Essen Haus closes for the fall and winter) at this time of year.
Nice looking place, a bit touristy but nice. Good service, but don't expect the waiter to discuss beer with you - you have to get your info from the menu.
There are a lot of different beer styles available, with some rotation, but most of them are just average, with a few good exceptions, notably a british style IPA (not described as such on the menu) and a dunkel.

Stopped in on our way home from visiting family in WI.

Decorated in a way you might expect when you hear the name; cut logs, antlers & general "Up North" theme. However, instead of feeling warm & inviting, it comes off as over-commercialized. But hey, this is the Dells, so I can't fault it for that. Everything in town is that way.

Service was very good; the hostess greeted us enthusiastically when we walked in & we were quickly shown to a table near the bar on the 1st floor. Our waitress was there quickly, took our drink order, then gave us just enough time to look at the menu before asking if we were ready to order. She checked back on us several times as well.

The food was just OK. I had the elk burger, and while the flavor was quite good, it would have been excellent had it not been overcooked. It was a bit dry. My wife had the mushroom & swiss burger; it was the same. Good, but not great & over-cooked. They are probably just erring on the side of caution there. The seasoned fries that came with both were pretty tasty.

The beer was very good, we had a pitcher of the Oak Aged Stout. Check out my review of that for more info.

I went upstairs to check out the fermenters & stuff; 3 of them were happily bubbling into buckets from the stainless blowoff pipes on the tops of the fermenters. Cool, wonder what beers those were.

Overall, a worthwhile stop, and I can't believe this was my 1st visit, as I've been going to the Dells since I was a young whipper.

Whoa, I have to admit that I was prejudiced against this place for some obtuse reason. However, I was put in my place in the best way possible. Great place! Attention was paid to the smallest detail. Aesthetics have played a crucial role in the design and execution of the building and operation of this place. Should be around for at least 100 years. And, AND - good beer to boot! Only had appetizers to eat and they were tasty. Bit pricey, but on the other hand beer was almost crazy cheap! Looking forward to a return ASAP.

I was able to stop by Moosejaw on a Saturday for lunch and beers. When walking in, my first impression was how big this place is. Three levels each with their own bar.

It is decorated as a large Northwood's lodge. Massive logs and beams, stuffed animals, old advertisements and newspapers, etc line the walls.

We settled into the bar room on the main floor. The service while friendly is a bit slow. Lots of young servers that would rather chat with each other than check on their customers. We weren't in any hurry, so it didn't bug me to much (except when I needed a refill).

I was impressed with their beer offerings 6 regulars plus four specials. I had a tasty pumpkin ale and a very decent red beer made with rye.

The food was pretty typical pub fare. It was well executed and came out in a decent amount of time. I think most folks will find something they like.

I must admit that the Moosejaw was much better than I thought it would be. Given the extremely touristy nature of the Dells, I expected a few subpar beer offerings, mediocre foods and tacky décor. Glad I was wrong!

Overall this is a place that the time you arrive and the place you sit will determine how you like it. That said, we arrived at entirely the wrong time. We had 12 people in our group and had called to see if they take reservations (they don't) since we saw the crowds on previous days.

I would recommend arriving mid afternoon for a late lunch or early dinner rather than coming at peak times. We had a been quoted 45 min wait (it took over an hour). During the wait, everyone who left said the same thing "...Good thing we got there when we did!...".

We then went to our table in the basement dining room, not much atmosphere down there, but the upstairs areas looked nice. I would try to eat at the bar next time.

I ordered the BBQ pork sandwich, which was definately not pulled pork. The taste was ok, but from what I hear from the rest of our group, the pizzas were very good.

The beer was hit or miss. The alt and the blonde bock were very good for the style, but the Weiss had no traits I normally associate with the style other than being cloudy - no head, no banana/clove esters. On the plus side they had 8 or so on tap, so there was a good selection to choose from.

All in all, it is worth a visit while in the Dells and I do recommend getting a sampler before ordering a pint.

We make sure to hit this place every trip to the dells.

I agree with other reviews that this place is a bit like chuck e cheese but I knew that going in so it's not a knock on the place. The beer is very good. My girlfriend and I polished of a pint of everything they offer and once again we were quite pleased. The bartenders are super fun and know their beer. With 10 taps to choose from you should be able to find something you like.
The food is always good. I suggest the pizza since it's their star. Not to mention it's delicious.

Overall this is a great place to drink a craft brew and get good food in the dells.

Moose Jaw Pizza and Brewing Company is a great big showy lodge-style building with a restaurant and bar area downstairs and the brewing area in the upper loft. It looks very touristy, so our expectations were lowered. It actually turned out to be not that bad!

I ordered the Imperial Winter Warmer (8.5% ABV) which was brewed with peated malt, and aged in oak barrels. It was served in a snifter, and was quite impressive! They have a female brewer (which I found very interesting), and she claims this may be the best beer she's ever made, I couldn't agree more....it was very nice and far beyond what I expected!

C didnt want to commit to a single brew so she went with the Six Point - a sample tray of six 5-oz glasses which she got to choose.

Honey Ale (4% ABV) and made with Wisconsin Honey - this was surprisingly drinkable; light and sweet

Dell's Chief Amber Ale (5% ABV) - could not finish even five ounces...way to sweet and boring.

Raspberry Crème Ale (4% ABV) - brewed with real raspberries - not extract; this was refreshing and tasty, and had a fabulous aroma of fresh fruit!

Kilbourne Hop Ale (5.5% ABV) - brewed with locally grown hops for Brownie Zinke's Hop Farm; her and my favorite of the Six Point; nice hoppy flavor!

Stand Rock Bock (6.8% ABV)..nothing exciting but a solid bock nonetheless.

Milk Stout (5.8% ABV) - a little thin, but otherwise fairly well done stout.

We ordered a little snack - I had the Wisconsin cheese and beer soup, which included nice chunks of vegetable and little chunks of bratwurst; C settled for the lightweight side house salad.

Our bartender was good and overall the place exceeded what I was expecting. If you find yourself in The Dells this place certainly is worth a stop....although I would hate to see it in the middle of the tourist season!!

This visit ocurred summer of 2006 - the head brewer was Dana Wolle at the time.

Went here on a family trip to The Dells. My wife planned a breakaway and snuck me away from her family for a couple beers here.

As described by others - Moosejaw hits it. Lodge style is pretty darn cool. This place is huge. I didn't try the food other than appetizers, so did not rate. The people next to us at the bar said pizza was good.

The head brewer used to be at Gray Brewing when their stout was great. Now it has slid to below mediocre. They did not have a stout on, so I tried the porter - Dana is still doing great work - excellent. Tried a couple others that also were well made.

If you are stuck in the Dells and want to get away, this is great choice.

This brewery and pizza place is in the large tourist town of Wisconsin Dells. I had seen signs on the side of the interstate when travelling through before and decided to make the pit stop for dinner with the wife and kids during a long travel day. I was thrilled with the "family friendly" atmosphere as the decor with all of the "moose" stuff and the pizza delivery cars with giant moose on them was entertaining the kids and keeping their behavior in line. There is also an arcade in the basement with video games, pinball and other games that require luck or skill. It is a great place to kill time with the family while enjoying good beer and was an exceptional place to jump out of the car for a few hours. The pizza was "okay" and they had 10 beers on tap when I visited that varied from very good to perhaps slightly below average. Most of the beer was good however. My personal favorite during my visit was the Raspberry cream ale. Dell's Chief Amber ale and Kilbourn Hop Ale were good also. My wife and I shared each other's pints and finished the list with a sampler. The sampler comes on a "slice" of a tree with holes carved in for the flight of samplers. The arcade was handy for folks in our situation to let the beers process through your system. The moose antler chandeliers were neat. I can see some folks thinking its tourisy or "over done" but I thought it was great and unique in its way. They have a little giftshop near the door where you can pick up memorabilia like shirts, stuffed toys, post cards and the like. If I were a vacationer in Wis Dells and had been at the waterparks for the past 4 days this place would be a "must" to get a pie and a few hand crafted beers. It would also be a great place for the adults to enjoy beer while the kids burned through rolls of quarters. There was nothing bad about our experience.

Went here as a tourist with the family in July 2010 and knew I had to try the brewpub. The place was packed and obviously a tourist haven. Had to wait maybe 15-20 minutes for a table in the evening (a Wednesday). The pizza (deep dish) was a bit doughy, but delicious.

Enjoyed the brewpub options in their 6 variety sampler. Had Sweet Lou's lemongrass ale, dells pilsner, dells chief amber ale, raspberry creme ale, summer wheat and blonde bock. Of the 6 I probably wouldn't try the lemongrass again. If I get back to the Dells, I certainly will stop here again.
