Diner Reviews
  • "I love this place! Old style supper club. Great food, steaks, seafood and the rest. If you go to the Dells and don't want to eat chain store dining, or gimmicky theme park food then the Dell Bar is for you."

  • "We were celebrating our friends' 50th anniversary by treating them to dinner. Our young waiter, Jerry, paid close attention to this and brought a complimentary champagne toast and a candle in our dessert. He joined in our conversation a few times and was amazed at the idea of achieving 50 years of marriage! Jerry added a welcome "extra touch" to our celebration."

  • "For the last 4 years we close our family vacation at this establishment. The hostesses this year, two elderly women did NOT greet us as we entered as they greeted other diners who entered after us. Upon being seated I sent my 11 y/o grandson to request sugar due to none being on our table. One of the hostesess brought a dish and when I and my daughter said, "thank you," she walked away without a response. Our waitress from last year, "Renee," was VERY NICE and ATTENTIVE" although she was not waiting our table."

  • "We dressed for the occasion but everyone else you can tell was on vacation as so were we. It seems to be set for both. We arrived at 500 which was not busy at all and they have a lower price menu for early birds. We ate the Pan fried walleye, cold water lobster, oysters on the half shell, crab cakes and for the kiddies they had the chicken fingers. Every single food item was prepared perfect. The walleye flaked perfectly the lobster was at the right temp and not over/under done. One thing we got that we were not happy with was one of the drinks that we got. It was a mojito. So if this is the only complaint is it really one? ;)"

  • " We've been making the drive from Madison just to go to the Del Bar for over 30 years now. Previous to this visit, my husband brought me up to celebrate my birthday. Always fabulous food and great service. Miss the piano in the main dining room."

  • "One of the best steaks i have ever had in my life!!! The filet was oh so tender and very flavorful. We also ordered a side of pan seared scallops which were equally as wonderful. Would drive the distance just to enjoy another one of those fabulous steaks."

  • "We had reservations for a party of 7 on 6-21 -2014. We arrived and once the hostess saw we had 3 children with us they quickly scrambled to set up at table in the back room, so 15 min later we were sat. Once at our table the waitress was slow. The food was poor and in fact one of our people had to send back his pork chop because they were still raw and frozen on the inside. We have eaten at del-bar for years. But because they shoved us into the back room and the quality of the food was bad, we will not eat or drink at the del bar!!!!!!"

  • "When my wife and I arrived at the restaurant they had no knowledge of our confirmed “Open Table” reservation. I showed them my reservation on my smartphone but they seem to have an indifferent attitude. Fortunately they were not that busy and could accommodate us."

  • "We have talked about visiting the Del Bar each time we are in town and am glad we finally did! The atmosphere was quiet with a mixed crowd dressed casually and others more dressed up. The restaurant is beautiful inside! We had steak, each prepared in a different way, and the cooks had it spot on. The food was amazing! I would definitely come back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This is a white-tablecloth fine-dining experience for adults. The Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architecture is very nice, with a large bar and multiple dining areas. The menu included daily chef specials, including numerous steak and seafood dishes and really-fresh oysters (which we especially enjoyed). All dinners come with a spinach or house salad and fresh rolls. On the night we dined, I had four jumbo scallops oin a butter sauce and my wife had the seafood bow-tie pasta, both of which were excellent. Our waiter was very young and not that well-versed on the menu, but we had a nice dining experience nonetheless. Yes, we highly recommend Del Bar as the best restaurant we have found in the Dells."

  • "We live in Chicago and go to visit relatives in Lacrosse, stopping in Wisconsin Dells. The last few times we have eaten at Del-Bar. It is a true Wisconsin supper club. The menu is great. The food is high quality and well prepared. We have had the steaks and the crab. This time I had the Copper River Salmon. The service is friendly and efficient. Our waiter this time was Jerry and he was terrific. We will certainly continue to stop there when in the area"

  • "There were 14 of us for dinner on Saturday night. I made reservations through their online site, which worked great. I had requested seating in the main mezzanine. When we all arrived we were led to the best seat(s) in the house. All of our meals were beyond expectations. They were delicious, the cocktails were great and the service was wonderful. Everyone raved about our experience and will be back again, SOON."

  • "My husband and I took our kids (19 and married 25 yr. olds)to automation weekend and requested a table by the front windows. My son-in-law was in heaven having a perfectly done Wisconsin style ribeye and watching the cars cruise the strip. What a night to remember. The Del Bar also has hands down the best drinks- especially the Lemon Drop martini just can't be beat."

  • "My husband, myself and our 3 year old had dinner at the Del Bar on Mother's Day. My main focus, however, was the delicious scallops I'd seen on the menu. They were just as I imagined them...sweet and perfectly seared. Wine was 20% off and all mom's received a free dessert (discounted and free pleased my husband). My daughter enjoyed views of the pond with koi swimming about. There was something for everyone! Cant wait to return!"

  • "Second time here. didn't have my reservation. Don't know if that was their fault or open table. Had a confirmation. The wait wasn't very long. Noisy bar area. A lot of swearing by a group in the lounge. Ordered my steak med.rare. came out a little too rare, but I ate it.My girl friend loved their Schaum torte last time, this time not so much. It must have sat too long or something, the crust was chewy. Not as good as last time. We did visit the first time in the off season. Will go again if in the area."

  • "The food at the Del Bar is second to none! The calamari appetizer, sea scallops, steaks, and desserts were amazing. I'd also recommend their spinach salad with warm bacon dressing-it's to die for! Our waitress was amazing and very attentive. She even put candles in our desserts for our anniversary. The atmosphere is low key yet classy. The prices mirror the high quality food. We will be back any time we are in the Dells. Be sure to make a reservation as every time I have been there they are at or close to capacity!"
