We had a waiter who not only knew the menu well, but also provided terrific service. The cocktail I had was well made and my husband's scotch on the rocks was extremely generous. We ordered different entrees and both of us were very pleased - my with the rib steak done perfectly to my liking and my husband's chicken parmesan... More

I have had good and bad experiences in every establishment, restaurants and hospitals too! As with those, doctors etc, there are people that say good things and others say "it wasn't so". I believe certain things somehow need to be overlooked, influx of business, area, type of food and many other details. One thing for sure is the "HOUSE OF... More

Where do I even begin? We made our reservations for 9:00 pm and arrived at 8:30 pm. We were told they were running behind and that we could wait in the bar. After complaining 3 times and waiting for 1 hour and 15 minutes we were finally seated. We were seated near two very rude customers who were dressed to... More

House of Embers is very sorry about your Valentines Evening. Valentines evening was a very busy night and some of our reservations were running about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes behind. Our dress code is casual and we do tell our customers that when they call for reservations. I know which couple you are talking about because I had to... More

Very nice place to eat at reasonable prices. The food is very good. The staff is attentive and the prices are very good considering it is in the Dells. Highly recommend this place!

Requested the private dining room for two. It is a little room with bench seating; benches have a padding on them. Unfortunately the ambiance is completely ruined by the fact that this little room is connected to the bar. On the night we were there, the bar was packed and we felt like we were in the middle of every... More

We visited with a large party and were able to get a reservation easily since it was a Sunday night after Christmas, the dining room was surprisingly not full with a good amount of empty tables available, I imagine it could've been more difficult had we tried to visit on a Friday or Saturday. It seems to be one of... More

The food was very good but the food took a long time to come to our table. The waitress was nice but did not give any excuses why the dinner took so long even though they were not that busy.

We eat here 3-4 times a year and the food is really great, good service, good cocktails. We have been going here for over 30 years and I have to say we have never had a bad meal. Like all the places in the summer it gets busy and you might have to wait awhile but otherwise no problem.

On Wednesdays (I think) the chef comes up with three amazing combos which are offered as a meal. The combinations are eclectic and varied but always delicious. Everything is fresh and local fare is included whenever possible. Very friendly and competent staff.
