These guys have done it all right, food, service, ambience. this is a don't miss spot if you are ever in northern Wisconsin. Menu is short, inventive and the food is excellent. We never miss going there when we are in the area.

Take some time and yes...go to the Delta Diner. It is a beautiful drive out into the country. Once you are there you will most likely need to wait a bit for a table. That is okay because any amount of time that you wait is so well worth it. When you are seated your waiter will come and tell you what is on the menu for the day. Again you may wait a bit for your order but when your order arrives it will be perfection. This is a perfect destination for the times you want to take your time and have a lot of conversation and some of the best food that Wisconsin has to offer. If you take the time to enjoy the Delta Diner you will not be disappointed.

To call this restaurant a "diner" is an understatement. It is an EXTRAORDINARY diner, the best we have ever been in. The atmosphere, the people and the food are fantastic.

The restaurant has a great story from how the owner bought the diner/trailer, which was broken down in a field in Pennsylvania, hauling it back to Delta, WI, to restoring it with a 50s flavor. The business is family owned, and to raise funds for the restoration, regular customers were given the opportunity to become investors. Rather than tip the wait staff, items on the menu are priced to include tips, and the prices are reasonable.

We went with our friends to breakfast, who are regulars and investors. The menu is varied and unique. I had a blueberry french toast with marcipone cheese. It was AMAZING. My husband's breakfast was great too. The portions size were large.

The dinner gets so busy, there can be a long wait. Get their early. If you have to wait, go to the owners ice cream (homemade) cottage next door . Perhaps buy a tee shirt! Definitely, go to Delta Diner. You won't be disappointed. We can't wait to visit our friends again and plan to go to Delta Diner.

What a nice surprise in the Chequamagon National Forest. Not sure what to say, except, you better eat here if you ever get the chance! This is not typical diner fare!

This is a must stop. Whoever created the menu items really has some vision. To really try things, take advantage of the half serving of Norwegian pancakes with jalapeno - and be sure to sprinkle with lemon. Wow. My Mexican Bene (an Eggs Benedict spin) was amazing, with eggs and a chrizo sauce sitting on top of rich cornbread. It came with a side of two pieces of delicious toast from the Ashland Baking Company. The PBLT (Perch BLT) was also incredible. All this topped off with a Swedish Cream - a custard-like desert that is like a light ice cream with berries.

And worth noting -the fries were exceptional. A nice bonus.

If you read the negative reviews on Trip Advisor about this place, please know they are describing some real things about the service. Mostly, if you are uncomfortable waiting, this is not for you. And it is small - a group of no more than 4 is probably best. I wouldn't dis the staff, they were just fine for me. And I didn't think the pricing was at all out of line.

Take it for what it is, and relish that you are getting some very different and wonderful meals. This is great food worth driving for.
