We frequent this restaurant a lot, almost exclusively for breakfast. Service is usually great and food is really good and plentiful. Sunday morning breakfast is usually their busiest time, plan on waiting if you go then.

We found this place as we sidetracked (more lost) while on the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive. We saw the good reviews and gave it a shot. It is a breakfast/lunch place so we were there about an hour before they closed. The service was decent but the waitress forgot to bring tartar sauce that was supposed to come with my... More

This is the place to go for a great breakfast. And if the weather is warm, you can even eat outside on their patio. The breakfast potatoes are the best!! Very quick and friendly service.

Early breakfast. Ham Swiss omelette with English muffin. Egg white veggie omelette with wheat toast. Delicious! Warm friendly atmosphere. Extra fee if you pay credit card. Maybe you'll be lucky and get Kenzi as your server.

The Lumber Inn was bustling on a Saturday morning, but they cheerfully had our table for 11 ready and waiting for us upon our arrival. On-street parking was available, but there were also spaces free in their lot. The staff were super friendly and helpful, and made us feel at home and well taken care of. We enjoyed many menu...

If you are anywhere near the town of Delafield and you are hungry for a great Breakfast then you must go to the Lumber Inn .As he name implies you will be served a hearty breakfast that would even satisfy a lumberjack tradesman. Have visited several times with consistent results. Great food and prompt service and quite a busy place... More

Met a friend there on a Saturday morning. The inside was very crowded so we took a seat outside. My chair was about in the street but I survived. Ordered an omelet and although it was good, it wasnt anything special. I have been to alot of really good breakfast spots and this just wasnt one of them. It wasnt... More

We've been coming here for years. Friendly service, reasonable prices and by far, the best breakfast in town. Pancakes, omelettes, and home fries (their hash browns) are all really good. Puts Denny's, Perkins or any other chain to shame.

Thank Dave H
