Steakhouse
The year was 1943, and Jim and Alice Wimmer decided to take a big risk, buying a small existing roadside restaurant known for its char-broiled steaks. How fitting that in 2018, the restaurant's 75th anniversary year, the third generation of Wimmers, Amy Wimmer, takes the helm from her father Jeff and his wife Jane, bringing her own adventurous spirit to the Del-Bar, the same kind of spirit she so admired in her grandparents. Rich History • 75 Years & 3 Generations • Award Winning Cuisine While flattering comparisons to steakhouses in Chicago and New York are regularly made by visitors, Amy Wimmer still cherishes this restaurant, her family restaurant, as one-of-a-kind.

    We had another great meal at The Del-Bar. We shared the 10oz. Filet dinner, hash browns with onions, spinach salad, and a lovely Pinot Noir. The restaurant and bar were busy, but the staff were still very attentive. The staff, drinks, and meals are always first class.

    What a beautiful building! It was like walking into a 50's movie set (for a restaurant). Absolutely lovely. Our waiter (Alex) was delightful. He was helpful, patient, and attentive just the right amount. The food was terrific. I forget the protein my husband had, but he raved about the smashed cauliflower. He asked and Alex asked the chef for the list of ingredients so we can try to recreate at home. I had the walleye. Beautifully prepared. Just delicious. We don't come to the Dells very often, but the next time we are around, we will return!

    We started with a shrimp cocktail and drinks at the bar. The shrimp were large and served with a great tasting cocktail sauce. Our drinks were delicious. We each had one of the Mother’s Day special meals of filet and tempura shrimp. We also had the hash brown potatoes. I received a glass of champagne and my husband had a glass of the Conundrum red wine. The restaurant was busy but we still had great service.

    We have been to the Del Bar many many times. Never once did we have a bad experience. Everything is 1st class (service, staff, food, etc.). I took my wife their for Mother's Day and it was awesome. The bartender (Mary) was exceptional and our waitress (Kimberly) was outstanding. The food was excellent as always. Plus my wife received a FREE glass of champagne for this special day. The newly expanded bar is a plus. Lots of room now to enjoy those delicious cocktails. Plus, an expanded parking lot for plenty of parking. Definitely be coming back again in the near future.

    We are consistently amazed with the quality of your food and of the outstanding service. The filet mignon is always cooked exactly as we request, and it continues to be as delectable and tender as imaginable. There are only 2 suggestions I would like to offer. The first suggestion would be a request to order more prime rib (if possible) on Mother's Day weekend so that you do not run out before all your reservation time slots. The second request is to invest in some "soundproofing" ceiling tiles or some other soundproofing options because guests have a very difficult time being able to converse with each other over the top of such loud volume from surrounding guests. I think that the new renovation has made space for more guests, and the volume level is only going to become worse if soundproofing steps are not considered. Thank you so much for considering this request.

    Overall we a had a pleasant experience. We tried 3 appetizers. The shrimp dejonghe was just ok, the shrimp were overcooked. The scallops were absolutely fantastic! Tempura asparagus was incredible as well. We both had side salads and they were great. We both ordered 8 ounce filets and they were delicious and cooked perfectly. The creamy potatoes were good. The hashbrowns were soooo yummy. The noise level where we were seated was awful. It was a small room in the back and there was a large group of people that were way too loud.

    Del-Bar iscour "go-to" place for special occasions. (In this case, my wife's Birthday.) No place else in the Dells area comes close, IMHO.

    Dinner on another Friday night…the new addition is complete and every table was filled! Tonight was a bit odd as we were coming straight from the Madison airport AND the flight was late. The team was very accommodating with our tardiness and gave us options for seating. Our server Jessie was perfect…friendly, efficient, attentive but not intrusive. The Halibut and Lobster Roll were perfect. The clam chowder chunky and delicious; salads fresh and chilled. No room for dessert (this time) but a perfect meal. Thank you, Del-Bar and congratulations on the addition!

    Spinach salad just fine at most! I have had many better! You skimped! Strawberry torte could have had some fresh strawberries on it! Slow down! You obviously need to turn tables often! That leads to rushing us out! Slow down! We want to enjoy our dinner! We certainly pay enough for that!
