Date night was great. We splurged a bit but I’ll say it was 100% worth it. The ol fashioned I had was the best one I’ve ever had. I had to have a 2nd which I NEVER do. Filets were cooked perfect and our server was attentive but not overbearing! Great night

Wisconsin Dells / Lake Delton
About the restaurant
The year was 1943, and Jim and Alice Wimmer decided to take a big risk, buying a small existing roadside restaurant known for its char-broiled steaks. How fitting that in 2018, the restaurant's 75th anniversary year, the third generation of Wimmers, Amy Wimmer, takes the helm from her father Jeff and his wife Jane, bringing her own adventurous spirit to the Del-Bar, the same kind of spirit she so admired in her grandparents. Rich History • 75 Years & 3 Generations • Award Winning Cuisine While flattering comparisons to steakhouses in Chicago and New York are regularly made by visitors, Amy Wimmer still cherishes this restaurant, her family restaurant, as one-of-a-kind.
