The Del-Bar Ratings and Reviews

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.

A great meal and service. I love the old style steakhouse ambiance with just enough modern style to make it inviting. I loved the bar atmosphere, leather bucket swivel stools. There was light background music, nothing blaring in your ear.

We always stopat DelBar when we are looking for a special dining expirience. We had a bad original expirience due to a seriously lackluster server-but since then have had Bonnie as our waitress and have never been disappointed again, (we now request her for our server) We always enjoy her friendly and attentive service. 20% off wine nights bring us in, and walleye, rockafeller, cremebrulee and escargot keep us coming back. Hats off to this great supperclub.

We ma our reservation about an hour and a half before we went there. Hostess at the restaurant did not have an updated sheet with our reservation. She did work to get our party of 6 seated within 5-10 minutes. Loved the spinach salad and steaks. Pricey but certainly a step above all the hamburger and pub places in the Dells.

We love the Delbar... Whenever we are in the Dells we eat there. We love their spinach salad, Tempura Shrimp, and I always upgrade to get Brussel Sprouts. We look forward each time to our visit. We also like their tap beer and wine selection. Great place!

Great dining experience in the middle of the Wisconsin Dells. We were looking for a nice restaurant for my wife's birthday - and Del-Bar did not disappoint. Tables spaced far enough apart for intimate conversation. Personal, but not intrusive service. Great menu, perfectly prepared food - including a wonderful gluten-free menu. Beautifully plated. An all around wonderful evening. We will be back and will be recommending this to all our friends!

A special dinner to celebrate my daughter's first teaching job. We love the atmosphere at the Del Bar. Although the restaurant was full, the noise level was low. A more casual summer tourist crowd, but still elegant. We all enjoyed our food selections. The wait staff was attentive. At first I sensed they were trying to hurry us along, and it was busy. But we settled in for a nice relaxing meal and ended up being at our table for nearly two hours of conversation and good food. A memorable meal and a nice way to celebrate.

The Del Bar has been a Wisconsin Dells staple for generations of families and is always noted as a "special" night out. It used to be primarily for couples out dining but now more families are there so if you're looking to get away from kids you won't be. Food is always good quality and desserts are excellent. Service very good. It's a traditional Wisconsin supper club in many ways -- tradition is nice in this day of every restaurant buying/selling from the same food distributor or being a chain just like the one in every other town.
