Old time supper club

This place is a retro old time supper club. Great atmosphere. Stared out with drinks at the bar. Somebody forgot to tell the bartender that he was supposed to put alcohol in the drinks. Almost nothing. Having to wait a long time for our second drink, we were informed that happy hour was over. So... read more

We liked every thing about the fish fry. Service excellent, food plentiful and super. Got to sit where we wanted. And we got a discount. which made it better.

We celebrated Mother's Day on 5/10/15 and the buffet was very disappointing. Hot options were pancakes, french toast,sausage, quiche lorraine, scrambled eggs, chicken, potatoes, swedish meatballs and ham. Had to wait 15 minutes for scrambled eggs--have not heard of such a thing at 11 am at a buffet. Dessert/cold options were muffins, pecan rolls, a few types of bars, fruit,... More

Thank you for attending our wonderful Mother's Day Buffet Brunch. We are sorry that you didn't like the food and thought the price was too high. We served over 400 people that morning and everyone left with a smile. All of the food served on the Brunch is made fresh using fresh ingredients. Some examples are the ham is served... More

Half of the food was cold. Italian seasoning & whole garlic cloves in the prime rib. Bitter vanilla scented spinach could not be eaten. Even crème brule was bad. Only good thing was the salmon, cooked very well. Décor terrible. To spend $140 w/ a good tip was not appealing. Would rather have fast food.

I highly recommend this restaurant. Since it was Saturday, I had the prime rib, oysters on the half shell, and escargot. Very happy, and left with a full stomach. The manager was very courteous and friendly, and would check to make sure everything was fine. This was our second time there, and will go back again.

Don't mess around, when you're in the Dells there are two excellent restaurants to hit: DelBar and Wally's House of Embers. I've never had a bad meal at Wally's House of Embers. It's a true dining experience, everything I've ever eaten there, from the salads to the main course and the desserts are all superb. There are a handful of... More

6 adults 2 babies for dinner. Staff were all very friendly. Nice dinner specials, good menu selections. We all enjoyed our meals-not 5 star but good! There is outdoor seating but it was too chilly when we were there.

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
