The Del-Bar Ratings and Reviews

Everything was delicious! From the excellent escargot and oysters Rockefeller, to the shrimp, walleye, steak, and pork chop, our party of eight enjoyed it all. We decided to check out The Del-Bar on a whim and we were not disappointed. We'll definitely be back the next time we visit the Dells! It's a gem.

We always look forward to Del Bar. It's iconic in the dells. Oysters were outstanding, drinks as well. Salads good. 20 oz bone in ribeye cut from a huge loin so pretty thin, but good flavor. Bernaise sauce was overpowered with lemon juice. Desserts and after dinner drinks good. Pecan pie. Hash browns as a side were great.

The Del-Bar was recommended to us for a nice dinner out and it did not disappoint. Our waitress was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and able to make suggestions. She was attentive to our needs but not overbearing in any way. The house spinach salad was delicious with just the right amount of bacon dressing. The rolls were warm and the perfect accompaniment with the salad. Our entrees were equally satisfying giving all 3 five stars....Tempura shrimp had crispy coating and perfectly cooked shrimp, Grilled Salmon with bernaise sauce was moist and tender without being raw in the center, and the Pan Fried Perch was a pleasant substitute for the Walleye which they were out of....it included 6 pieces of fish which allowed for a take home meal. The wine list was wonderful especially as it included wines from the Wollersheim Winery which we had toured earlier in the day. The Prairie Fume is one of the Winery's signature wines and was on the Del Bar menu. All in all we would give the Del Bar 5 stars and cannot wait to go back. We would like to be seated in the bar area next time which seems to have a cozier atmosphere and a feel of the 1950's or 60's.

I have dined at the Del Bar many, many times. It is quite frankly one of my most favorite places to dine.
I took my wife there for her birthday,the food was excellent, but I was disappointed with one thing. The restaurant knew it was her birthday. I thought for sure when the meal was done they would bring her either a desert on the house or a small piece of cake with a candle in it. their was none except the waitress did bring her a small plate of plain whip cream with a candle in it. I thought this was pretty cheap on the part of the Dell Bar. When you spend that kind of money there and it's a special occasion, they could of at least sprang for desert for her (nothing elaborate, but something better than a dish of whip cream.

The decor is dated but keeps that charming classic supper-club feel. You can show up dressed up or totally casual and be comfortable and then the FOOD IS AMAZING. Would highly recommend it - we had a lot of variety at the table from baked haddock, to chicken cordon bleu, to steak, and even a kids meal and it was all absolutely perfect. Don't miss this classic.

Overall a great experience. Comparable to Ishnala minus the view. The service is fantastic and the atmosphere will have you thinking you stepped back into the old supper clubs of past. I ordered a brandy old fashioned sweet. The drink was perfectly balanced and thus delicious. We started with the stuffed mushrooms and calamari as our server, Rainee, suggested. Both were great. The mushrooms were flavorful and the calamari was tempura fried. Next out came crackers and a bread basket along with the salads. The greens and veggies were fresh and the dressing was made in house. Very good. Next up was the filet mignon. I requested medium and it came out medium well which was fine with me. My baked potato was average but the steak was like butter. No A1 or bbq sauce needed here. No gristle or fat either. I ate every bite. For dessert I enjoyed the creme brûlée. Very good. I will definitely be back.

Pleasant surprise! We spent one night in the Wisconsin Dells as a stop on way to St. Paul. We were staying at the Hilton garden inn next door and asked about the restaurant. We were no impressed by anything in the Dells except this restaurant! Old type steak house with excellent steaks! The spinach salad recommended by all was correct! My husband liked his halibut as well. Would actually go back to this restaurant if it wasn't in the dells! The dells could be great with kids but we didn't have any with us.

I have been coming to the Del Bar for over 50 years having grown up in both Chicago and Lake Delton. Del Bar remains a preferred family special event place, as well as just a treat for daily dining. The ambiance is so rare to find these days; it is casually elegant and quiet enough to hear all persons around the table. The menu is populated with the tried and true recipes and sprinkled throughout with specials - and they are all brilliantly done, tasty and compelling, and satisfying.

The Del-Bar was recommended at our B&B as "fine dining." The server was very professional but it was a bit too casual for "fine dining" (we felt a little overdressed among the families and vacationers). We waited about 15 minutes for drinks, although the bartender sent her apologies. The food was good, although ordinary and the prices a little steep. The filet I ordered "medium" was "medium well," but otherwise fine. The bread selection was excellent along with some unusually delicious butter. We liked the Prairie Style design of the building. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner but would probably try other places in the area first before returning.
