    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I'm 67 yrs old & I remember when the only time that you could get a good steak was at a restaurant. Unfortunately,with the quality going down, that no longer is true. good steaks,as I remember them, no longer exist. EXCEPT at DelBar. Fantastic is the only word that my wife & I feel can describe them.They may be a bit pricey but well-worth the cost.Our waitress was extremely helpful & professional. This is one great restaurant & we will definitely be back!! By the way,we"re from Chicago & we prefer DelBar over anything that we've had in the Chicago area.

    They didn't have our reservation when booked online but we were still seating quickly. The food was absolutely excellent. But the waitress did not bring me a gluten-free menu and didn't realize my dish wasn't gluten free until ready to serve me.luckily it was caught before I ate it and I was able to change my dinner option. I ordered their steak special that night it was absolutely fantastic.

    We went there and celebrated our one year anniversary. I mentioned that in the reservation because we wanted to sit by the fireplace where my husbands parents always sat when they went to the restaurant. They had it in there notes to sit us there and that it was our anniversary. They gave us both a complimentary glass of champagne. Now just with that experience alone I would recommended the Del Bar. But it just got better. The food was incredible. The steak melted in our mouth the rice was flavorful even the crackers they gave us when we came in was excellent. My only regret is that we did not order desert. Something for next time.

    so this was my first time here. and the food was amazing, price point was not to bad. ( kinda knew what i was expecting to pay). it started off really nice in the quite part of the restaurant. but as soon as our main meal arrived, a 7 person party got sat right next to me and they were really loud and no one asked them to quite down. in a place like this i would expect someone to ask them to tone it down just a little. the only reason i would consider slow is i don't like to wait or ask for a refill on soda. other than that it was a really nice place to eat at and the food was perfect. visit on 10/20/2014

    We had dinner here on Sweetest Day. It was busy and we did make reservations. Folks without reservations were waiting about one hour for a table. Not a big deal as they have a very nice lounge/bar area. The menu offers a nice selection of choices. The onion soup was tried by one and enjoyed but nothing too special. The spinach salad was very good, the dressing was very tasty. The pork chops were delicious, two nice sized chops were served. The steak ordered was cooked exactly as ordered and every bite was eaten. We did not get dessert, but the choices we saw going by looked delicious. There were groups of various sizes here and all the service seemed to be moving along quite well. All in all a great meal and we will be back.

    We had time for a cocktail in a cozy part of the bar then we were wisked to a table nearby for a delicious dinner. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal from the salads to the creme brûlée & coffee! Our server was efficient & friendly. We would definitely return. Note: Please remember you are in a tourist town.

    My fiance and I went to the Del Bar to relive the experience we had the night we got engaged. We live in Madison but the 1 hour drive to the Del Bar was more than worth it, even in the rain. The waitstaff was pleasant and professional and the food, oh the food. To die for. They have a small selection of steaks, but they do them perfectly. Five stars all the way.

    I looked online to pick a restaurant because I wanted to take my girlfriend out to a romantic dinner while we were on vacation. The Del Bar was listed as having great food and a quiet, intimate environment. The food was fantastic and worth the cost, the service was great, but the environment was terrible. We were put in a large open room with about thirty tables. The groups surrounding us were very loud and the bar area was also loud. My chair was continually bumped by the group behind us and I could not hear my girlfriend when she was talking to me. I would suggest this bar if you love good surf and turf food, but definitely not if you want to have a romantic evening out.

    We recently went to the Del Bar and it was wonderful (again). This is probably my 5th or 6th tome there and it has never failed me. The pan-seared Walleye is absolutely the best that I have ever had! The appetizer and wine lists are great also. It has a really nice atmosphere; kind of relaxed. I will be back again!

    This was our 22nd anniversary and wanted the dinner to be truly special. We chose the Del-Bar because we know the food and atmosphere was fantastic. What we also received was wonderful service, starting with a complementary glass of champagne for our anniversary, followed by the best dinner. We received the best table in the place, center booth and they made sure everything was extremely memorable. We will definitely chose the Del-Bar again for future anniversaries!

    The Del Bar provides a terrific experience - from the angled bars at the lounge, to the decor that honors the Dells rocks along with a nod to Frank Lloyd Wright, to the menu that takes classic Supper Club items and updates them for today's tastes. The vintage feel is only in its atmosphere - the food is clever and fresh, bold with flavors. Service was neat and quick and not intrusive.

    the restaurant was great. I loved the ambience and the food. Service was also nice. Open table failed, miserably. The address and subsequent directions were wrong. took me out of the way and to the wrong part of town, and when we arrived they did not have our reservation even though Open table claimed that we had one! How embarrassing. never using your service again, and I will recommend others to try another service.
