My wife and I had some business to take care of in the area. We love to find great non-chain restaurants. We want to support entrepreneurs. We saw that Lumber Inn had great reviews and thought we'd check it out. It was fantastic!! It would be in the top breakfast restaurants for us in the Milwaukee area, like Mad Rooster... More

Lumber Inn is one of the most popular breakfast places in lake country. They always pack em in. Try the eggs benedict with crab cake.

Large breakfast menu, but we went for lunch and that is basically Denny's type fare. I'd go again for a quick sandwich, but wouldn't go out of my way to go. The service were excellent though. Friendly, fast. Great service.

I've been here several times and can't wait to go back. They are known for their great breakfast dishes. You may have to wait a few minutes on the weekends but it's worth it. Quick service. Great food. Good value.

I was on a business trip and had heard about Lumber Inn. It did not dissappoint. I was in and out in 20 minutes with a great breakfast. Service and food can't be beat!

This is THE place for breakfast in lake country. Other restaurants in Delafield try to grab breakfast business but the locals know there is only one game in town. Always good, always fresh, always hopping, always clean and always a hit with out of town guests.

Casual spot for breakfast or lunch. They do have a liquor license so you can get a Bloody Mary with breakfast!! Great food, friendly service and reasonable prices make this a nice spot.

Thank Aligoo
