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.

Our server seemed quite uninterested and I don't know if she had a problem with us personally, but our service sucked! She was quite attentive to others around us, but didn't feel the need, explain specials (which we learned of after we ordered from another waiter explaining them to adjacent table), refill water, collect the check or pick up plates from our table. Luckily there was a young woman who was wandering and bussing who came and cleaned the table, went to get water, and even collected the bill, after we sat there for about 15 minutes with it, and got it taken care.

Sat in the bar area because we enjoy ourselves more in that atmosphere. Server was amazing, asked our first names as we ordered and remembered them throughout our experience. Very happy with the traditional Supper Club fare. Just the evening we were looking for.

A great experience on New Years Eve with friends and family. There were 10 of us and the service was great and the food was delicious. Our servers Jerry and Renee were outstanding. The host did a wonderful job of getting us seated quickly on a very busy night. This is a great place we dine at when we are in the area.

Went on New Year’s Eve. Great food but not a very good server. Service was very slow. So much that my second drink didn’t come until I was done with dinner.

Spent 15 years working in the Dells until the early 2000s and Jimmy's was the place to go to celebrate a special night out. As we were heading to Minneapolis I thought it would be great to stop off for a trip down memory lane for a50th birthday dinner. Sadly I wish I had kept driving. While my daughter's steak was good, that was about it. It was one of those nights where almost everything went wrong. Our server was either new or just awkward. She made the experience disjointed and not fun. The bread basket had two open packages of crackers... When we mentioned it to her..."oh that's weird" was all she said. My wife's shrimp were small and over done. My steak was fine but had a lot of gristle. And it was expensive on top of that. For my birthday (which they knew it was.)..i got a candle on a plate. Seriously... If you aren't bringing us a desert because you are too cheap to comp one... Don't point it out by melting a candle on a plate by itself. I really wanted this to be a great meal and celebration... Instead I will just have to remember the good old days.

We were on vacation and was told Del-Bar had the best steak. The cab driver told the truth.
The hostess promptly seated us at our appointment time. The cheese curds are fresh and also are the best you will put in your mouth.
The New York Strip is seasoned 14-21 days and is so juicy and tender. My wife had boneless ribeye and was very pleased. Both were cooked to our satisfaction.
