Good Food and Service

Had a great family meal on their outside patio. Great service and food. Kids enjoyed their selections of the kids menu and the full menu was great.

We went for dinner. My Caeser salad with Shrimp was excellent and took up the whole plate, I couldn;t even finish. My son had the Lobster tail and it was excellent. My wife had Ribeye steak with veggies and mashed potatos. She rated it great! Service was just fine. No complaints at all. A little pricey but it was excellent.

We wanted to try different resturants on our recent trip to the Dells and House of Embers was one of them we always drive passed. The outdoor area had caught my attention in the past when I seen a band playing. We took advantage of the Early Bird specials menu from 4:30-6:30pm. Both of us ordered the Chicken Picatta and...

Had dinner with my wife before attending a concert & was quite happy with the experience. Our server was good & fairly attentive. The food was good. Nothing special, but nothing negative to say either. We sat out on the patio - the indoor décor was pretty cool. Kind of a vanilla review for a vanilla experience.

First visit to House of Embers for the season and I have to say I was very disappointed. We brought our adult children and friends, 8 in all. Ate outside. Server was fine. Food was marginal with the exception of their signature cinnamon rolls; which were fabulous . Salads contained meager toppings, appetizers looked like they weren't homemade. Looked like... More

We've dined here in the past and was not ever the slightest bit disappointed. We decided to bring guests here last week and it didn't go so well. The outdoor area had 5-6 tables seated, and we were seated among them. Our waitress didn't ask if we wanted drinks. We finally asked for water when our salads arrived. I had... More

Food was ok, service was different. First of all, our server did not tell us anything about specials (as we overheard other servers do at other tables). Just walked up and took our order. After I ordered my meal (ravioli), I asked to add a caesar salad. I was brought a HUGE salad; when I asked if it were the... More

We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday night and were seated immediately, Nice to not wait. There were many early bird specials, but we has a coupon so can't use with those meals unfortunately. Special tropical drink (pain killer) was tasty, minus the cinnamon but pricey at $8. i ordered the fettuccine with shrimp on lighter fare menu, and added... More

Arrived at Embers Thursday June 11th around 6pm with guest. We were seated immediately as the restaurant was not busy. After about 6 minutes of waiting for water, a waitress or anything we decided to leave. We were passed by a waitress on three occasions and never acknowledged our presence. At least drop some water on the table to keep... More

Dear Mark, Have you ever waited 6 minutes for a cup of coffee at a business? I have. I have waited up to 20 minutes. This doesn't bother me, because I know that their coffee is great, and they are doing the best they can to accomodate me. Same at House of Embers. The food is great and so is... More

Been awhile but I remember the service was average and the food OK but I bit overpriced (pretty much like every thing in the dells). Possibly would try again but the old Hooligans is now a German place to eat and drink and food/service excellent!
