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.

Burger was good, other menu items were heavily salted. Service was slow and awkward. Good dessert.

The food was outstanding and delivered as we had requested. Our waitress, (Jessie F) was way beyond what would be normally expected. Some of us had quite extensive limitations on what we could eat and she either knew already what all was available or she further checked with the chef for clarification. Great Great place to eat. When you receive such outstanding service and food, it is easy to recommend this to anyone who wishes to have a great experience when dining out.

It has been about 4 years since I was at the Del Bar. It is still one of the best quality restaurants in the Wisconsin Dells. It is quite expensive but I would look forward to going there next year.

Always one of our favorites when we visit the Dells, though slightly less perfect this time around. First, Oysters Rockefeller are made with hollandaise sauce. What they serve by that name is not. French Martini, also on their menu, needed to be sent back as it looked and tasted more like cough syrup than it should have. You do not need raspberry flavored vodka when you are also making the drink with chambord. That is raspberry overkill. Great steaks and the spinach salad with hot bacon dressing is still a winner! Ambiance is wonderful there.

I was immediately taken with the beauty of the mid century modern interior. Our server, Cheryl, was stellar. She was friendly, easygoing, conversational, professional. She told us a bit about the history and architecture of the restaurant. She engaged naturally with our daughter and her friend. The bartenders were friendly and curious about a drink my husband wanted. They lacked the ingredients and were planning on looking up information. The food was delicious. My husband and I shared a salad, crab and steak. It was plenty satisfying. The crab legs were cracked for us for easy eating. The kale salad was phenomenal! What a satisfying experience!

Good thing we had 6:15 reservations for (4), and checked in early, because we didn’t get seated til 6:40!. Very disorganized seating process. BUT it’s a very classic supper club and was very busy on a fish fry Friday. Once we got to the table, our waitress was wonderful and very experienced, and our fish came very quickly. It was just OK, more greasy than I would have expected. We’ll probably give it another try next time we go to a show in the Dells, and allow more time for the reservation and try some other menu items.....it is a convenient location to the Crystal Grand Theatre.

We visit Del-Bar probably 4-6 times per year, and we are ALWAYS pleased with the atmosphere, service, and food. This time, our group of 10 arrived a little before 6:00 on a Friday night. The bar was busy, but service was prompt and the drinks and appetizers were exactly as ordered. We got to our table, and two servers took additional drink orders, and started us on our dinners. Most of us had steak, and a few had fish. The salads, breads, entrees, and desserts were all absolutely perfect in preparation and timing. Another great night out.

I rave about Del-Bar at every opportunity, and friends & extended family have taken to joking that it's the only restaurant our family visits. While that's a slight exaggeration, it's not entirely wrong. Del-Bar is (and has been, for more than 20 years) our go-to special place for our special days (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) or just when we want to get together for a nice meal in an environment where we can sit and talk, and be happy. If you haven't been, go.

Our dinning experience was excellent.
Only complaint was I ordered my steak medium and I would say it was medium-rare.
I did not report this to the server so I didn’t expect them to remedy the situation.
Other than that we really enjoyed our experience.
My reservation online was very helpful since we traveled 45 minutes and were seeing a concert at Crystal Grand.

P.S. spinach salad was amazing!

We are so fond of the Del-Bar. Actually we have been dining there since we were children, having our wonderful parents and godparents treat us to this fine dining. We continue to go to the Del-Bar for many special occasions. It is special!! Thanks to everyone who makes it a step back in time with the highest quality of food yet today.
