Go for the dessert

My husband and I ventured out of our resort in search of a great place to celebrate our wedding anniversary during our last trip to the Dells. I had the petite Filet and added a 5oz lobster tail - it was just okay. My husband had a filet and snow crab legs which he loved. The dessert we asked for... read more

We got married by the Justice of the Peace and headed to the Dells for our honeymoon. We made reservations for the Omar Sherie room for two for eight p.m. We were treated so wonderfully by the waitresses. We had the stuffed mushrooms and oyster rockefellers as appetizers it was very good. My mushrooms and steak were tender. Sadly we... More

This place is scary. While you're waiting for your mediocre meal to arrive, you can play the "Let's Guess the Last Time they Dusted" game with your party. Probably something like 1982 is the correct answer! Some may find the restrooms to be interesting and kitschy with the dark wallpaper and gothic-style chained pendant lighting. For me, I thought the... More

Thank you for selecting our restaurant for dining. We are sorry it did not meet your expectations. House of Embers is a supper club and some of the decor in the dining rooms does reflect the history of our 57 years in business. All of our antique lamps throughout the restaurant came from the previous House of Embers, including the... More

I have been dining there over a 45 year period. 2nd generation family owned and operated, they have specials every night with several on Friday and Saturday plus early bird specials every night. Their Happy Hour from 4:30-6 pm has reduced drinks and appetizers in the bar. Live music on weekends on the large patio and Tiki Bar in the... More

Having dinned at the House of Embers many years ago, this was my first time back. I have to say the new owners have made a lot of changes. They have expanded the eating area. Having different type's of theme rooms for all occasions. The menu and pricing is in line with other fine dinning establishments in that area. I... More

6pm res. on New Year's eve. Kind of expected the worst due to restaurants being so crowded on NYE. Took a few minutes for our waitress to show up so started to worry. But once she showed up her service was dead on and we had no problems whatsoever. Drinks were served promptly, entrees were served nice and hot. I... More

Our server was very helpful with dining options, and very friendly. I will return. Live music in the bar is a great extra. Try the spinach salad with the warm maple/pear dressing.

We had a very nice dinner here! Great and attentive service from Linda and all-around excellent food, from the hot sourdough and foccacia rolls, to the lobster bisque to all of our entrees - ribs, chicken piccata, grouper special and best of all, the sea scallops in a smoky bacon corn chowder sauce with shoestring friend onions. Yum!

We met some friends here recently for dinner and the entertainment and were underwhelmed. Granted we were eating in the bar area, but we considered getting the cell phone number of the waitress so that we could get service. From our aspect, our money was as green as those sitting in the main dining area, but you wouldn't know it.... More

This restaurant used to be so much better than it is. The service is inferior and the food is average.
