Outstanding service at the bar by Nadia & Gretchen. Our appetizers arrived promptly and we're great. Our meal was served in a timely fashion also. The steaks were tender and not overcooked.

Received the recommendation to try Del-Bar from another skier while riding the lift together at Cascade Mountain earlier in the day. It was an excellent tip.

From the moment you walk in the door you feel comfortable. The hostess makes you feel welcome. The wait staff is amazing, the food is scrumptious. This is the best place in Wisconsin Dells to eat.

We went out to dinner to celebrate a birthday. The steak and seafood was phenomenal. Everyone was happy with their meal. The staff was fantastic from start to finish. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Dells. We will definitely be back the next time we are in town.

The service was awesome, the food was very good. Steaks were cooked to perfection. We had apps and some small plates too all very good. We came here a few years back and loved it! It was the same this time. We will definitely be back on our next trip down. We brought our 3 young kids with us this time and last and they always ask when we can go back!

Reserved a table for Valentine’s day and couldn’t be happy with the placement. We were sat next to the fire place and it was warm and beautiful. The service was quick and the servers were very polite. The only down side was the table next to us having a 2 year old, but that isn’t anything against the restaurant.
The food was absolutely fantastic. Will definitely return.

It has been 15 years since we were last at Del-Bar, but fond memories lingered. So we were anxious to see if it was as wonderful as we remembered. This time was a very cold night in February. We got a lovely table by a fireplace. Enjoyed a dozen delicious east coast oysters, followed by great meals of steak and seafood. They have the most incredible vegetable sides. Cooked to perfection. Our server Elena was fantastic. Helpful and attentive. Service was prompt. She even provided a frosted glass for our bottle of Peligrino! Hope to be back before another 15 years elapses.

The food and service were great. I had to walk through the bar to use the rest room and it was packed with people. I was shocked that was allowed with COVID. The restaurant tables were distanced and I felt safe eating dinner but would NOT recommend going inside bar area when it's packed with people drinking and not wearing masks.

We have been coming to the Del Bar for years and it never disappoints. The food was excellent however being that it was Valentines day it was extra busy. Usually a little slower pace for dining but understandable for the holiday.

This was our first time at this restaurant. We had been meaning to try it, but it just kept slipping our mind. Well, NOT anymore. The food was phenomenal, and the service was outstanding. We both had filet and lobster and they were done to perfection. The steaks were probably the best we have had. Our server (I believe her name was Barbara) was awesome. We will definitely be coming back. There is more stuff to taste!!

Del-Bar is our go-to place when celebrating something special or just pining for the best baked French onion soup in the area. The naked filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The Scottish salmon ala Oscar was fabulous. We’ll be back sooner than later.

All four of each ordered something different and were all very pleased: Salmon, walleye, steak and pork. The spinach with bacon dressing is excellent too. We were celebrating a birthday and the guest of honor got a complimentary dessert. Our wait staff was excellent - attentive but not intrusive. We are lucky to have a "supperclub" type dining experience in our area.

Girls weekend and the other 3 ladies wanted a great steak. Even though I don't eat meat I knew the best steak in the area was at The Del Bar. I had the salmon which was excellent too. The Del Bar did not disappoint my memory and all 3 want to return for Valentines Day with their significant other.
Great food!

First of all, I requested a "warm" table which was granted. We were sat right by the fireplace and the hostess offered the table number so when I make reservations again, we can request that specific table.
Secondly, the food was absolutely delicious and our waiter Joe was superb.
My husband had the pork chop and I had the shrimp de Johghe.
We will be back!

Absolutely the best! We will be going back every dells trip. Our filet mignon was melt in your mouth good and the lobster tail was awesome.. Our waitress Bonnie was so professional and treated us with a special champagne toast for our anniversary. The atmosphere was very romantic yet, inviting. We loved every bit of this place and will highly recommend to anyone!
