This restaurant us located in a motel. I usually eat dinner late and there aren't many options in town to getca good meal after 9pm. Dinos is open until 10p. The portions are large. The salad is okay, the soup is very good. Its quiet, inexpensive and has lots of options.

We had the french dip sandwiches. The roast beef was dry and had no flavor. The au ju was bland. We hadn't been there in awhile. It is not what we expected. Could have been an off day. We will go back...

This is a nice little "Up-North" kind of place. The food was decent and the staff was very hometown friendly. Don't expect any fantastic foods but their basic menu is fine. We found this restaurant to be in much better shape than The Ridge Motel to which it is attached. We had the basic bacon and eggs with bacon and... More

They had 3 or 4 different kinds of fish to select from for their fish fry - something I've rarely seen and really appreciated. Service was excellent, food was very good. Paid $1 extra for the sweet potato fries - well worth it!

This our latest Friday Fish spot. I think being next to a kind of dowdy motel is a negative for me. But we read the Trip Advisor reviews and decided to give it a try. Most times we try to avoid restaurants with a 6 page menu. We were pleasantly rewarded. My fried cod was ample and nicely beer battered.... More

We ate breakfast here. The staff was helpful and sensitive to our dietary restriction. The meal was good and well priced. We didn't wait long either which was important as we wanted to get started.

We stayed the night in Portage for our trip to the Dells and tried this place for breakfast. Initially I was unsure because of our stay at the attached hotel, but this place was fantastic. Our server was super friendly and kept checking up on us to make sure the food was to our liking. The menu has several options... More

We have never had a bad meal or bad service here. Love the fish fry and my hubby loves the lasagna. The bar serves a good drink and everyone is more than helpful and friendly!
