Del-Bar “the best steaks in town since 1943.” Passionate, fairly priced wine list. Cocktail lounge. Prime Steaks, Jumbo seafood, Fresh fish, Sandwiches and more. The perfect place to hold small meetings, casual affairs, and great dinner parties.

The Del-Bar was establish in 1943 as a Roadside Steakhouse by Jim and Alice Wimmer and today is still family owned and operated by Jeff and Jane Wimmer. The "Prairie style" ambiance, renovations and expansions are by James Dresser, an important protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Every year a large group of us from our marketing conference goes to the Del Bar. Every year it's fantastic. We had bad weather this year, but everyone still wanted to make an effort to be there and after one uber making 3 trips there - we finally all arrived! Thanks for the great service!!!

Wow everything was so good! Great atmosphere, many window seats in restaurant usually to cold and drafty for a night in February heaters under every window made it feel so warm n comfortable. Jessi our server was OUTSTANDING!!! All the courses were spot on. congratulations to the staff at the

A great experience overall , with fantastic service and everything we ordered as amazing and cooked perfectly to our liking. The only complaint we had was the table for two was located near a heavy traffic and server station with people going by all the time. Next time we will have to be in a more secluded and quiet area.

Our second time here. Just everything was beyond excellent! The boneless ribeye was so good. It was the special. I also had the mashed potatoes, which were also excellent!! We had after dinner drinks, supper club style. Grasshoppers and brandy Alexander’s. They were equally top notch and the whipped cream was real!

Began first of many great meals in 1948' NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. Jimmie Wimmer always remembered a name and made you feel so very welcome. He was a true gentleman.

It would be difficult to find a better place to dine.

I have been coming here since I was a little kid and have never had a bad meal! We literally will come to town and get a hotel room just to eat here. Their happy hour is fantastic and a great deal. You cant go wrong with anything on the menu. Personally, I love the eacargot, onion soup, hashbrowns as a side and either a steak or the tempura shrimp. My wife gets the crab legs every time. Prices are high, but so is the quality!

Great food. Service was top notch. The only problem was where we were sitting. Very cold because every time someone opened the door we felt the cold. The waitress did try to turn the heat up but it only helped a little.

We were attending a concert and really enjoyed the Happy Hour menu. One in our group had the duck and said it was without a doubt the best she ever had. All four of us were very pleased with our dinner. Even though we live 3 hours away we can not wait to go back. Strictly the BEST.

We love The Del-Bar! I’m from Chicago and my parents starting coming her in the 70’s. I took a group of girlfriends here for the first time for a girls’ weekend and they fell in love. All the servers were extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make our experience exceptional. The cheese curds appetizer was outstanding. I would highly recommend them. 5 of the 6 of us ordered steaks and they were very tender and delicious. Perfectly prepared. The Grasshopper and Brandy Alexander are a must. Classic supper club experience!

We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, we are locals and the Del Bar is our special occasion dinner spot. We were seated at an intimate corner booth and greeted with complimentary champagne in honor of our anniversary. I had the walleye and my husband had the seared tuna, both excellent! The Del Bar never disappoints.

Our food was prepared well but the overall portions were quite large. We found it strange that a high end restaurant, for the area,had packaged crackers on the tables.
Our waitress was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was pleasant.

The Del Bar was very accommodating. We took a bachelorette party there, group of 15, and they catered to all of us and made the bride feel like she was #1! I was very appreciative of that. They had our food out in a timely manner, very polite and GREAT food! Loved the ambiance. Highly recommend for the Dells area. They also called me back asking about an earlier reservation which surprised me. Overall, 10 out of 10 experience!
