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

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!

After years of Dells trips we finally decided to stop in for dinner. We arrived a little early because of later plans and were surprised to find a wonderful "early bird" dinner menu. There was a large varied selection and we both ended up making a choice off that menu. Both of our dinner were very good. They had a... More

You must stop here for fine dining in the Dells! The hickory smoked ribs are billed as the best in the Dells and this is correct.The food is excellent as is the wait staff. A very nice dining experience!!!

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.
