Steakhouse
Through an exclusive arrangement with the nation’s premier meat supplier, we offer corn-fed, dry-aged, center-cut beef, inspected and selected by master butchers. When the beef arrives, we refrigerate it in a perfectly calibrated environment until the moment it enters our custom-designed broilers – each capable of reaching up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Over the top? Not if you want the kind of char that steak lovers dream about. Not if you want to serve a steak that has no equal. Welcome to the great steak of Wisconsin.

The same dedication to quality explains why we deal with only the best seafood suppliers, why we procure locally sourced meats and produce whenever possible, and why we have created one of Wisconsin’s truly great wine lists. It also explains our insistence on providing the Dells’ most accomplished level of service in a truly comfortable environment overlooking the Wisconsin River.

Good: Beautiful restaurant, wonderfully nice and attentive staff. Good garbage salad. Nice choices of beef.

Bad: I am always looking for a beef filet that cuts like butter and melts in your mouth, and this one definitely did not. I was disappointment in the quality of the beef. I had a petite filet and lobster (approximately $130 not including tip or tax). I am very picky re: beef, so I was very disappointed. The lobster was broiled and extremely dry. Way too overpriced for the quality/taste of the food.

First time here staff was excellent waiter was 5 star hostess was 5 star very friendly and accommodating.
Food was awesome with exception of our loaded mash potatoes apparently cheese was added and they popped in microwave because plate was hot hot cheese was melted but potatoes were barely warm. Kitchen needs to better prepare them as this was the only disappointment of our meal
Salad was absolutely fabulous loved how it was prepared at table
Overall good experience

Food and service were outstanding. Maybe in my top 5 steaks ever (and I have eaten at a lot of great places). I only dropped them a star because the area we were in had the UFC fight on in the background and that was pretty annoying.

We were greeted at the restaurant entrance with smiles & warm hospitality.
We really appreciated the sincere welcome & warm hospitality of Candace, our waitress. She was totally knowledgeable of the menu, offering good combination suggestions.
***THE GARBAGE CAN SALAD ... IS A MUST EXPERIENCE!!!
We ordered the Porterhouse Steak & the bone-in Filet Mignon, both were done exactly as ordered. We had the baked potato, the mushrooms, & the broccoli with a delicious Hollandaise sauce.
We enjoyed their carrot cake! In the past, we've ordered the Brownie with sauces ... one was as delicious as the other!
We would order everything the same, except, we like to try something different each time we dine at the Kaminski's Chophouse.
WE HAVE NEVER GONE WRONG!
We never pass through the Dells without dining at the Kaminski's Chophouse!
Most of the time, we also stay in one of their Beautiful & spacious condos.

Extremely over priced. Only part that was actually worth it was the crab, and even that you don’t get whole lot for almost $100. Probably will not be returning. Our bill was $370 before tip for two people, potato’s were plain Jane, asparagus is advertised as jumbo and literally brought out for you to see with meats and then the real thing is tiny. Brussel sprouts were nasty, little to no bacon in them. Steaks were barely seasoned and again, plain Jane. Supposed to be fine dining, went on a Friday night and every table around us had multiple rowdy children at them. Definitely not the atmosphere or experience you’d expect from how it’s advertised and priced. Over all very disappointed other than our server was fabulous.

I've been here three times now and the experience is always great. I usually get the Kansas City steak and it's always been done relatively the same per my mid-rare request. Either way, I love the salad and meat display experience and my servers have always been outstanding. I live over an hour away and it's always worth the drive.

We have been coming to Kaminski's for years and have always loved it. But was less that impressed this time around. Waiter was very pushy. And food was subpar. The cheese on the escargot was rubbery. The 16oz porterhouse was full of tendons, not the usual cut of meat one would expect. The hollandaise sauce was also cold when served.

Appetizer of crab/shrimp cakes were the best we ever had. Fillet and lobster were amazing. The mushroom risotto was absolutely wonderful. The loaded mashed potatoes were pretty good as well. The brownie occasion dessert was fantastic. Overall it was the best meal we have ever eaten. It was also the most expensive meal we have ever eaten by far. Including tip with two adults and three kids, the meal was $365. I would recommend it to a friend for a special occasion.

Garbage salad was a wonderful first impression, followed by stuffed mushrooms that were very yummy. Lobster tails were a touch underdone (wouldn't easily let go of the tail not raw) but still good and the filet was cooked to perfection. Waitress Brianna I believe was her name, was absolutely fantastic, very helpful. The signature cocktail menu was also creative as well as fun. Wonderful date night

Food was amazing and the tiramisu martini was excellent. Would come back at some point in the future. A few things, the KC garbage salad, online it states it comes with the dinner, however we were each charged $6.00 for the salad. We ordered the Nueskes Bacon for one of the appetizers. It was good but lots of fat and then exactly what do you eat a big chunk of bacon with? So I would really not order again since we tasted a little, then took the rest home for breakfast. The crab and shrimp cake was extremely delicious. The balance of the ingredients was perfect. Usually I have had crab cakes and tasted mostly bread crumbs. Not these! We both had the filet mignon with oscar which was delicious and it melted in your mouth. Our leftovers the next day tasted just as good. Very tender and flavorful. The only negative for us was that the table next to us was very loud, had children that were loud and got out of their chairs to stomp around with the others at the table being totally distracted with their loud conversation - I mean loud! Also business casual for dress code??? People there were wearing jeans, shorts, hoodies, tennis shoes. To me this is no business casual dress. We just thought the facility would have been a little more fancier. All in all, we would for sure go back to dine here.

It was my birthday. I did not tell the restaurant this however. I reserved a seat in the “bar” as indicated on the reservation. We looked at the restaurant that day to anticipate where we’d be sitting, and I was excited to be sitting closer to the kitchen action. We get there (granted we were 2 minutes late) and thy didn’t have a seat for me, but had a corner table by the bar reserved for someone else more “special” I guess. I wanted to sit in that area so we sat at the bar. Couldn’t see any of the kitchen action though. He got steak and I got the grouper. The fish was not very good but I was hungry. He said his steak was “good but not as good as 5 OClock Strakhouse.” (Native Milwaukeeans will understand that reference). The highlight of the evening was a the smoked old fashioned. I’m giving them 3 stars overall just for that drink. Everything else was just “eh.” Thank you!
