Satisfied

We enjoyed the log wood atmosphere with the large fish tanks. Our prime rib meal and service were very good. We will go back again in the future.

Love the Wisconsin feel of this place. Fish tanks wall to wall with local fish. Food is good, service good. Would visit again in the future

We stop at River's Edge every time we are in the Dells. Great food and great atmosphere. The servers are friendly and fast. The large fish tank entertains the younger kids so try to sit in that area if you can. We've never had a bad experience here!

Rivers Edge is for those people who do not want to eat/stay at a resort. It is a small restaurant and bar for families. They have nightly specials. I had the broasted chicken one night and it was very tasty. They serve breakfast every day starting at 8am. Very good and service was great.

We as a group have been going to the Rivers Edge for over 35 years (it was a lot smaller back then). We never had an issue with this place to speak of. The food is very good and the prices are fair. Adults and kids will love the big fish tank inside. It's something to do while waiting for... More

We recently were up in the Dells for a sports tournament. We were looking for a place to bring a group of 30+ people and the River's Edge was able to accommodate us. Now...most would say they were slow so they could. Quite the opposite...they were packed and had a section reserved for us. We were sat the second we... More

Great food. Very friendly. More locals in here than visitors. Food is great. Drinks. $3 for a full glass of wine. Good whiskey drinks $4. Resort & General Store on property. Right on Lake Delton. Boat & fishing equip rentals. Out of the mainstream Dells area

We dined at this restaurant a couple years ago and had a good experience so we decided to return on this trip. When we arrived we were told there was a 20-25 minute wait for a party of 3. There were a few empty tables, so as a former waitress, I assumed they were short on staff. We didn't wait... More

My family loves this place. I am from Chicago, so I am no stranger to good food. We have been coming here for 3 years now every time we visit the Dells and we are never disappointed. The ribs here are very good, and you can tell they use Sweet Baby Ray's sauce, which is my favorite. I've also had... More

We went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and felt the reviews were pretty accurate. The place is not "Excellent" but the food was just fine to very good. The mounted animals and the big fish tank were perfect to distract the kids. It's the type of place kids can be loud and no one notices. Service was good. I... More
