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.

My husband said his steak was the best he’s ever eaten ( and he’s 64!).

Amazing food and service, as always. Three of us got the 10oz filet, & all three were cooked exactly as ordered. The quality of the food and service here is consistently excellent, we never have a bad meal.

The food and service was outstanding , our waitperson was very attentive and friendly.
My only problem was a large group the was seated behind us ( 14 people ) one or two of them kept dropping the f bomb and no one from the restaurant said anything to them. I was very disappointing.

The Del-Bar has been a staple in this area for many, many years. A go-to place for locals and visitors, and for good reason. A stellar bar and bartenders. Wonderful ambiance throughout. Perfectly prepared meals, with top-notch service.

As always we had a great time. I worked in the F&B industry and was a chef for about 25 years before taking a break and starting my own catering business. Jimmy’s. Del Bar has been a mainstay for over 40 of my 50 years of existence, my parents took us there on occasion and I went there for prom, parents redid their vows the beginning of this year.

It has always been a good experience. The reason for the 2 ratings not 5 star is because the rice was a little overcooked for my taste, however it was toward the end of the night so I kind of understand that it was probably in the steam table on the line for awhile... no big issue. Everything else was perfect.

The noise level was moderate because we were sat next to a larger group on the other side of the old “cabin door” that was open. Not a big issue either.

My girlfriend of 10 years loves this place and we will be returning for more anniversaries.... thank you for making it another great night. The free champagne was a nice touch.

Service started great but declined as night went on. Good wasn’t up to its normal pare. Halibut and French onion soup lacked flavor. Appetizers and drinks were good.

This is a very nice place, great ambiance (we are 'ol time dinner club atmosphere lovers), great staff and on all of our visits there, great food.
This is not necessarily a terrific downside as you do not have to have a cocktail, but the prices for beverages of your choice are higher than those nearby. Not a deterrent for us, just a comment.

The Del Bar has been one of our go too places for celebrating special occasions or just because for years. The quality of their steaks has always been above the rest. Oysters Rockefeller was a great starter, and we highly recommend the calamari! Scallops were precisely cooked to perfection and great tasting. This is one place that everyone should visit at least once! You'll definitely return. Ambiance is relaxing and fun at the same time!

We’ve been to Del Bar many times in the past decade because of the high quality steaks, oysters and service. Our past experience was definitely less than desirable. It wasn’t horrible but it certainly wasn’t what we have experienced in the past.

One of our favorite places to eat. The Spinach salad with warm bacon dressing is my favorite salad I've had at a restaurant. We love everything from the scrumptious crouton/cracker basket when we sit down, to warm rolls. We always get the filet which is absolutely delicious. Save room for the peanut butter pie as well - its amazing!

Excellent food & good atmosphere!
Made a reservation for 6:30pm and didn’t get sat closer to 7pm, that was the only downside. But overall experience was good! Been here many of times and looking forward to going back again!

Always a fantastic experience at Del Bar. The food and service are second to none. The restaurant is beautiful inside and out. Got there at 5:00 on Friday evening, seated immediately and enjoyed every aspect. Far and away our favorite restaurant in the whole Lake Delton area.

The cheese curds as an appetizers were done to perfection. Lightly breaded and done to a golden brown. The house spinach salad was wonderful. The dinner of 6 oz Filet Minon and Baked Potato were superb. The additional cost for the asparagus was well worth it. They were fork tender and seasoned to perfection. I notified them in advance of my mom's mobility issues and they accommodated her without hesitation. The server was on point and attentive when needed.

When we visit WI Dells my family looks forward to going to the DelBar. The service is outstanding and the food is delicious. The salads are great, the steaks can be cut with a butter knife and the fish is fantastic too. Never a disappointment.

Another amazing meal at the Del Bar! Excellent service, high quality food expertly prepared. We had the bone in ribeye and the filet, both with hash browns. The spinach salad with hot bacon vinaigrette is mouth watering.

Food and atmosphere is great, the drinks however could be improved . Ordered a martini up, came to the table without olives or twist. Also ordered an amaretto stone sour and there was no sour mix added. Again, overall a good experience but the drinks could use a little help.

We had a fantastic experience at Del-Bar! Our server, Bonnie was attentive, yet not overbearing. We had cheese curds, which were light and delicious, and my husband had 3 different kinds of oysters on the half shell to start- he said they were amazing! My Ribeye and his New York strip were cooked to perfection! All around it was the best dinner we've had out in a long time, and we eat out more than I'd like to admit! Definitely go here!!
