The serving team and front of house wear plastic shields that are supposed to be masks but definitely do not block anything. The food was below average and our server was least interested in serving us. Our food came to us dead cold and hot sauce took 20 minutes to arrive at our table.

Food & service was outstanding!!! We had reservations and were originally seated in far back small corner room. The noise was so loud we could not have conversation We asked for another table and were move to a better place in the restaurant. I suggest there be some remodeling done to absorb the noise in that small area.

Very classic supper club, excellent food and drinks. Great service! Only critique is the inadequate masking by the staff (a clear “open trough”, which doesn’t prevent aerosolization of Covid; this seems to still be all the rage in the Dells.). No other complaints and otherwise a great place!

First time. Was there for our anniversary. The atmosphere was great. It's an older style place almost like in the late 70's early 80's. The food was amazing. Had the Chicken Cordon Blue and wife had the Alaskan Halibut both were fantastic. Appetizers were a great start very tasty. The drinks and dessert went well with everything. No issues at all. Our server was spot on. Expect to spend for everything around $130.00 with tip. Depending on what you get. Some of the steaks can push it way higher but I bet they are delicious.

I haven't dined at the Del Bar since Jimmy ran it. Clearly his daughter has continued his quest for excellence to an even higher level. We celebrated our anniversary and they could not have been more accommodating. The food and service was excellent and timely. Anxious to return with friends once covid is under control. We appreciated the masks on staff a great deal.

One of my favorite places. It was a very busy night, so service was a bit slower than the norm. However, quality of food an beverage was outstanding as usual. Halibut was excellent.

My husband and I dined here when we were visiting the Dells for a quick weekend get-away. We arrived early for happy hour and it was a classic "supper club" atmosphere. The drinks were phenomenal and the food, when we did sit down to eat was delicious.

Staff doesn’t know how to cook a medium rare filet minion. Well done on the outside and rare in the middle isn’t medium rare. Almost 50 bucks for a steak, I’d sure expect better from the cook and waitress. You can’t reheat the steak to try and finish it when it’s already over done on the outside. Steak probably would have been great if cooked properly.

The 20oz ribeye tasted like a steak I would expect from a cheaper steakhouse. The filet on the other hand was worth the price.
The waitress I hope was just having an off night. She was very inattentive but very friendly.
