Stopped there for lunch after our duck boat tour. We wanted a place where we could sit outside and have a view of the lake. We got both of those. I personally recommend sitting outside if you can, the inside is old and has a distinct 'old bar odor to it. I don't think I could have sat in there... read more

We came here because we were out on a rented pontoon for the day saw their sign. Everyone was starving and sick of boat snacks. The group was made up of a lot of healthy eater and a half the group was allergic to GMO gluten (most bread these days). The menu offered very few options. Mostly breaded fried foods.... More

We loved this place, and made it our #1 must stop food location the 2 times a year we came to the Dell's. Unfortunately, we will probably no longer be coming. The latest owners have decided to take the incredible uniqueness of this once great restaurant and make it just ordinary. No longer do they have the "World famous Tommy... More

We arrived and seated by the hostess who came back to take our drink order then dinner. She brought the drinks, we got up to get our salads then waited 1 hour and 20 minutes and did not receive our meal. We were told several times that our food was going to be on plates very soon. We left with... More

We were seated inside and waited 1 1/2 hours and never got our food. No table inside was getting their food. People began to leave. Talked to a co-owner in the parking lot who never said sorry just kept playing with their phone. Not a place to go on the weekend.

Caveat Emptor - This steak in the past was advertised as a dinner for 2. We saw an ad pricing this meal at $27.95. So, we ordered for the 2 of us. The steak was not the greatest, more like a roast. The bill came and the price was $32.95. Turns out it is no longer for 2, but if... More

We have been coming to Dells for about 25 years. Thus is the first time we have eaten here. We absolutely loved it!! The kids loved it too. There are Spaghetti O's in a crock on the kids menu. Where else can you find that!! We actually ate here two days in a row. The Kitchen Sink Burger is phenomenal.... More

When we first arrived, the hostess asked us if we wanted to sit inside or outside. We said outside, she said okay, that will be a 20 minute wait. We changed our minds to sit inside then, and she said okay you can sit at that table. She led us to a table that needed busing, and preceded to clean... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and decided to try it out. We waited 5-10 minutes for a table; not a problem, but we were a little confused if anyone was getting a spot ready for us even after we talked to the hostess. We were seated on the deck - nice view of Lake Delton. There was a large party... More

Nice view of Lake Delton. Spin-art dip was ok. Our waitress got our drinks quickly. About half the tables were occupied (4th of July evening.). Our order of 2 spaghettios, 1 grilled cheese, 1 cheeseburger, 1 Reuben took more than 45 minutes. From the deck we could see into the kitchen and watched a parade of folks go in and... More
