Hearty platter is know Denny's. We went there for Breakfast. We got seated fast. And the food was nice and hot. They kept bringing us coffee. Would highly recommend this place.

What a sad day when Dennys took over. I will NOT be going there. Hearty platter had the best skillets. Wish they would bring back our favorite breakfast spot!

Needed breakfast on a drive to Chicago. Stopped in here, typical road / truck stop type restaurant, although I wouldn't say a greasy spoon. Service was friendly, but not attentive, nor did they ask how my meal was.

Hearty Platter has unfortunately closed. In its place is a Denny's. Denny's is OK, but it doesn't compare to what the "Splatter" used to be.

I love this place! It is a good thing I moved more than 20 minutes away because I was starting to go way to often! The environment is always relaxing and the waitresses are usually pretty good. The food is an amazing price for the value! It is connected to a kwik trip but this is by far the best... More

I have enjoyed the breakfast and lunch buffets on two different occasions. A good variety and always hot and tasty. Family friendly and right off the freeway, a great place to stop while driving to the northwoods of WI.

Reasonably Price, eggs cooked just the way I like them. Wait staff is quick to coffee cup...never to half empty. Attached to a Kwiktrip, very convenient for fueling up both you and your vehicle!

We stopped here yesterday for lunch while on the road, and first thing we noticed was that it looked newer, nicer, and cleaner than the one in Tomah. My husband always likes the chicken salad. I ordered the senior beef roast dinner which includes a trip to the soup and salad bar. I was stunned when they brought my plate,... More

We're not big into truck stop meals, but we've driven by many times and the parking lot is always full. Frankly, that has to tell you something. We stopped for breakfast on a Sunday morning. It's bustling, busy place but we got a booth right away. The breakfast portion of the menu has a good variety of items, including Eggs... More
