Steaks seasoned well cooked to perfection. Some of the best clam chowder that I have experienced. Very flavorful and plenty of clams. We will return.

Our first time. Loved it! We ordered steaks that had a wonderful sear on them, cooked perfectly. Yummy mashed potatoes, salad, rolls and appetizers. Cocktails too! Definitely a top spot for us!

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.

Everything was a good as usual, had a little issue with the crab legs, some were excellent and some must of be old, they were a little fishy taste.

We were staying the weekend and haven’t been here for 2 years. We got the same table as two years ago. It was busier than the last time but the service and food was as great as we remembered

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.

Wonderful place! Our waitress was warm, friendly and responsive. The food....fantastic! For an appetizer we chose the tempura asparagus; the asparagus was extra large and cooked crisp-tender, just the way it should be! The tempura batter was perfect. For our main course we had the halibut and the walleye pike; both were cooked to perfection and expertly seasoned. Overall it was an outstanding dining experience and we will be back!

The food was amazing and our waitress was great! The decor is kind of old fashioned but the booth was comfortable. The huge negative of our visit was being told that they needed the table back at 6:30 and asking if that was ok with us. This was our first date night since our child was born and it just put it off to a bad start. I’ve also never made a reservation and been asked if we would be done at a certain or anything of the sort.

Our reservation made no difference in seating. We had to ask to be moved as they put us in a high traffic area. Very friendly and moved right away to a table that was unlevel and wobbled. The service was great the food mediocre especially for the price. Longhorn steak house would rank way above this place in my opinion. With cheap cramp seating the Del Bar did not meet our expectations.

With an atmosphere that's warm and inviting, the Del-Bar is an upscale supper club that gives a one-of-a-kind experience and makes you want to return. It's pricey, but the perfect place to splurge for a special occasion or date night. The food rivals any big city four-star restaurant. Opt for an Old-Fashioned drink, the spinach salad, and any entree for a classic but truly memorable supper club experience. The rib-eye and filet were outstanding.

Told hostess it was our first time visiting , asked for a nice seat near a fireplace and she informed us they were not turned on as she went to seat us next to a window , I noticed that the fireplaces were all running , we were the first to be seated as I made 4:30 reservations , so it wasn’t as if there was no available seats , just being put in the high ceiling room by the window just didn’t have any of the northern dinner club feeling that I was expecting , Steak was cooked perfect but the rest was just ok for what we paid

Perfect romantic dinner. My girlfriend’s steak was great and my king crab legs were amazing. Cheese curds were awesome as well as the flourless chocolate cake. Sure, the price tag is high l, but I think it’s worth it if you want a great dinner
