In Pursuit of Food at Christmas Mountain Village

Christmas Mountain Village in Wisconsin Dells,Wisconsin. It’s a delightful four-season resort in one of the Midwest’s greatest family vacation destinations. From the natural wonders along the Wisconsin River to the unending gantlet of waterparks to the seasonal golf and skiing to all the tours and touristy kitsch that fill in vacation experience gaps here like grout, Wisconsin Dells can keep a family busy and active from sunup to sundown.

That said, there are enough amenities and activities on resort property that, if so inclined, a family could stay put all day and still feel perfectly content.  Why, they wouldn’t even have to leave to find delicious meals.

Mulligans Bar ‘N Grill and Jolly’s, located together in the Pro Shop building, offer hearty menu choices to suit every mood and every season.

Mulligan’s Bar ‘N Grill

If you’re more of the brats-and-beer type,  Mulligan’s Bar ‘N Grill is your destination. The classic “cold one” goes great with Mulligans’ menu of sandwiches, salads and even traditional Wisconsin fare. Everything on the menu is a perfect accompaniment to the big-screen television, always tuned to a sporting event, with preference given to the Packers, Bucks, Brewers and the Badgers.



Jolly’s is the perfect seasonal ski-in or stroll-in spot to warm up and spread cheer. In winter, you can ski, board or tube down the mountain, then stop in at Jolly’s for a big cup of fragrant hot chocolate before you head back to the lift.  More than a mere snack bar but just less than a restaurant, Jolly’s is perfect for a quick and casual warm up.

Both eateries share space with the Pro Shop at the center of all the skiing, tubing, boarding and golfing action. One taste of the variety of crowd-pleasing favorites at Mulligan’s and Jolly’s, and you’ll think twice about leaving Christmas Mountain Village for meals or refreshments.
