The Del-Bar Ratings and Reviews
I had heard great things but expectations were not met. Sexist policy where a male patron was denied service due to a sleeveless shirt but many female patrons were allowed to stay and dine. Food was bland; didn't know it was possible to make a flavorless filet but both filets arrived completely tasteless. Will not be returning.
Anniversary dinner and the restaurant gave us 2 complimentary glasses of champagne which was very nice. We ordered dinner and it was presented nicely and her sea scallops were the best ever but that's were it ended.
I ordered a $45 ribeye steak Wisconsin style and it showed up without the bacon and blue cheese topping. The waitress fixed that by bringing it out on a separate plate and if that was the only issue I would have given better rating. I ordered my steak middle-well and it was plated medium-rare.
My biggest complaint would be is that I paid $40 for a ribeye steak that I could have gotten at Ponderosa for less than half the cost.
I wish it had been a better experience.
Quality wasn't what is has been in the past. The oysters Rockefeller, rice side and roasted chicken (specifically the veloute sauce) lacked flavor. The pan fried walleye's coating was too heavy and lacked flavor as well. If this was my first visit I would not return but I have eaten here many times and know that the steak and prime rib is good so I will be back.
We were at the Dells for a vacation. This is an outstanding restaurant of the highest quality. The menu was fabulous with great choices. The service was impeccable. Our needs were anticipated and met throughout the meal. The food was excellent. We had the chicken breast, strip steak and salmon. All were delicious. We loved the salads and there was a nice cracker basket preceding the dinner rolls basket. Of course we had to try dessert, and the smaller portions available were perfect. We loved the key lime pie. Overall our group of 4 was totally satisfied and we will definitely return!
I've been to The Dell Bar many times and this time is like all the rest....Fantastic! The location is perfect, the décor is inviting and the food and service is always top-notch. I can't image a trip to the Wisconsin Dells without a visit to The Dell Bar.
I highly recommend it to all who want to enjoy a nice night out with friends, or those who are looking for a romantic dinner.
We had a really great meal at Del-Bar. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was really tasty. Sure, it's a little expensive, but I think it was worth it. The menu is extensive and they have a pretty good wine list. If you want a nicer meal in the Dells this is definitely the place to go.
This is our favorite Wisconsin Dells restaurant... We make a point to go there whenever we are in the Dells... The tempura shrimp is a favorite along with the spinach salad... They also have wonderful veggie options; brussel sprout, broccoli, and butternut squash... Highly recommend!
First visit to this restaurant which was a very a pleasant experience. Wisconsin Dells is a very busy town with all it's summer tourist attractions so finding such a great restaurant in the middle of all the hustle was great.
Prime steak, fresh sea food and many homemade desserts make up an excellent restaurant. Special things at this restaurant: excellent selection of small plates and their mini-desserts. After eating a terrific dinner it's nice to finish the meal with a small tasty dessert.
One thing that needs their attention is the quality of the coffee lattes they serve and this is the only item that needs attention.
Food and service were good but this place is really about the ambiance and that's where it delivers. You will definitely pay a little more than what you probably deem appropriate for what you get, but again, the experience is worth it - at least once. Also, they serve the best Old Fashioned I have ever had!
We were not aware of the "dress code" my husband was wearing a tank top. They made us purchase a tshirt that said $3 they charged me $5 for it. We should have left at that point but proceeded with dinner. Our server was very nice but the food was less than mediocre and really expensive. All 4 guests at the table were not impressed.
The del bar was excellent. Although a bit pricey, you get fantastic tasting food. I had the oysters Rockefeller which were scrumptious. For my main meal I had the ribeye with sweet potato fries. Very juicy and delicious. My wife had the filet and she loved it. The service was prompt and pleasant. Overall it is a very nice dining experience
The food was very good. our waitress, Jenny, was OUTSTANDING. The entire dining room staff was very good as well. It had been a while since my wife and I had been to the Del-Bar. We enjoyed it then and it has not changed. It is still one of the best places for dinner in the Dels.
