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.

A typical 80s restaurant with crackers and butter to start and no nuance to the food. It's far too expensive for what you get. The "well-done" burger was raw in the middle, my "house special" shrimp was just ... breaded shrimp. The "rice pilaf" was more like thick, sticky risotto, the chocolate torte seemed to have been bought from the frozen section of a grocery store, and the wine list was limited to what you can get at Costco on offer.

My husband and I came here for a Valentine's dinner Saturday. Right when we stepped in the door the hostess who greeted us, the woman who took us to our table, and the coat check gal were all so friendly and welcoming. They give us a nice little table for two over by the windows. Our server was fantastic. Very professional and quick with good recommendations. I ordered a filet and my husband ordered a New York strip. We also got mushrooms and we chose hash brown potato. Turns out you get a giant hash brown patty which is pan fried to a golden perfection! It's one of the best meals we have ever eaten. He'll definitely be back and recommend this to others! Thank you Del Bar for a lovely evening!

We live about 3 hours from the Dells but we try to get there at least 4 to 6 times a year. One of the highlights is always our dinner at The Del Bar! It is truly our favorite restaurant and never disappoints! This past weekend was no exception...it was our anniversary and The Del Bar was again our choice for this special occasion. Can’t wait to go again soon!!

We reserved online. We stood in front of the reservation desk and gave them our name. One lady looked at one of the other two standing there and said ‘I don’t know these people’ .
Again, I reserved 4 or 5 days in advance online.
Also put in a note that I wanted a Harvey Wallbanger to be served to my wife as soon as we were seated. Our waiter said she was not aware of that request. Dinner was, nothing special, except the cost $$$

My wife and my favorite place for special dinners. This was Valentine's Day. Many of our anniversary dinners are at the Del-Bar. So many of the staff have been there SO long--the service is excellent.

Excellent food. We had reservations and we arrived early had a drink at the bar and was seated at our table at the exact time of our reservations. We were seated at table by the window and before we finished dinner it got cold. Feet were freezing. Waitress was SLOW. I had a ribeye steak that was fantastic. I would recommend Del Bar. Great, great bartenders.

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!!!

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.
