It’s always noisy because it is in a tourist town but usually the food makes up for it. Unfortunately this time the portion size seemed inadequate for the price. The steak was not prepared to order.

Great evening! Wonderful service.... thanks to Amy and Cheryl.... spot on food and extraordinary wine. A true Wisconsin treasure in the supper club tradition. I have been enjoying going to this gem for 44 years. Never a disappointment. Family run 3rd generation.

I enjoyed the Del-Bar very much. The food and service was very good. Little disappointed that a Wisconsin Supper Club did not offer the lazy susan. Looked at the menu from 1953 that was displayed at the front of the restaurant and lamented about the good old days. I did order an old-fashioned and was not disappointed. I think the meal was pricey in that all you got for the $39.50 was a salad, meat and a potato. We did order the onion rings for an appetizer and they were very good. The rest of the appetizers were too pricey. I would recommend the restaurant but would warn that it is pricey. Bring back a lazy susan to be included with the meal.

As always The Del-Bar never disappoints. We have been coming here for many years. This visit was for our wedding anniversary and we received a glass of complimentary champagne which was a nice touch. The food was amazing, our server was so nice and funny. This is our go-to restaurant whenever we are in the area. Thank you for everyone for making our meal/anniversary so special!

We had a cocktail at the bar to start and an appetizer (Calamari) which was great; wonderful fun atmosphere and decor. Then we had steak for dinner, husband had hashbrowns and those were fantastic. Enjoyed our meal, a little pricey, but worth it.

Another great night out at the Del Bar. They always have a way to make everyone feel noticed and special. The food was fantastic. The steak done perfectly and the salmon on point as well. Kudos to the bar staff for making my Manhattans with a local rye whiskey,Limousin Rye from Dancing Goat in Cambridge, WI. A great night. We will keep coming back.

I thought our server was a bit harsh and rude. I ordered a whiskey sour and it came as a martini. I asked the server about why it came this way and she lost it on me. Very odd reaction my wife and I thought.

I had shrimp, and it was a bit over cooked, but everything else was wonderful. My companion had the duck and said it was perfect.

The "jumbo" scallops were anything but jumbo. The calamari was bland and the dipping sauce was not good or even complimentary to the calamari. The price of the meal was definitely not worth the overall experience in quality or ambiance. Will not return.

We have eaten there before and have had excellent food. This time we got the bottom of the barrel. Server was slow. After saying we needed a couple minutes to give her our main order after we'd given her the order of order it took her 20 minutes to get back to us. I could see that she was doing hardly anything anywhere else. When she did bring our food she told me my plate was hot well I touched it anyhow plate wasn't hot mistake was lukewarm wouldn't melt butter on top of it the mushrooms were like potato chips they were so overdone luckily it was my wife's birthday and her food was excellent

Used to love this place. Need to go back to what Jimmy did. Our food was way over priced for what you get. And whom ever cooked had a heavy Hand with the salt. Came back after not going when the son took over. Cannot say I will go back again.

We have never had a bad meal or bad service at the Del-Bar. It’s a little on the pricy side so definitely not a place I would take young children. It is great for special occasions or just a date night. I would highly recommend it!!

We have been coming here every year for many years. Each time the rating would have been 5 stars - not this year! We had a group of eight for a 7:00pm reservation. We arrived around 6:15 and sat at the bar. Great service by Gretchen. Finally called for our table at 7:20. Table service was not up to past years standard. Attention and friendliness was well below average. Had to ask for a refresh round of drinks and our dinner arrived over an hour after ordering (after getting up from the table and asking for our meal). A couple issues with the side dishes too. Management did comp our drinks but couldn’t make up for the way we felt about the overall service. We hope this was just a “bad night” not a sign of their normal service going forward.

The food was classic supper club fair. No nonsense steaks, seafood and cocktails with plenty of booze. They had a better than decent wine selection for the Wisconsin Dells and they take reservations, which I would highly recommend. The architecture is apart of the experience, as it was designed by one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s students, so take some time to wonder around a bit. I would however echo the comments about somewhat inattentive service and we had to wait about 20 minutes for our table, even with a reservation. It may have been so long to ensure we had a booth (which we didn’t ask for). This is a must stop for families visiting the Dells, in my opinion.

Really very good. Food was solid, reasonably priced and the service was very efficient. This is a very busy, quality restaurant in a vacation destination full of mediocre, family style establishments. Escape from the chains and have a good meal here instead.
