My friend and I went to Monk's on the evening of the Final Four Championship. I anticipated that the restaurant would be busy, but apparently the management didn't anticipate the same thing. While our waiter was super friendly he seemed to quickly forget about us and we waited forever to get our food. Never an offer to freshen our water... More

We loved this place. The service was superb. Our best during our entire stay at the Dells. Wished we'd gone there sooner during out 3-day stay. Will definitely make it a stop on our next visit! The food was great and the prices were good for a family of 4.

Every time we go to the Dells we make Monks a must stop. The burgers are the "BEST" The staff is friendly and service is quick. Great location; downtown Dells. You can't go wrong with a "Monks Burger"

Every trip to the Dells requires at least one stop at Monks for burgers. Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly

Considering Monk's location the food was a decent price. There were 5 of us. 3 of the 5 had a drink and we spilt an appetizer. We each got a meal and with tip it worked out to $20 each. It is a fun atmosphere. Every one that worked there was plesant. Everything was very yummy.

Went there two nights and the bartender's both nights gave off very un-friendly vibes. They acted almost as if they didn't care much about our service and ignored people at the bar unless they called them over. After moving from the bar to a table, none of their staff asked if we needed anything else. Food was OK - just... More

We were told by a taxi driver that Monk's had good burgers. He was right! Three couples enjoyed drafts and food. The burgers, fries, fried cheese curds and fried mushrooms were all very good. I tried the signature drink, a purple something, and it was good. If in the mood for this type of food, we would def return!

The staff was friendly and the food was served fast, I liked that. But the price for a family of four was pretty expensive. Our bill was 65.00, ordered 3 burgers (came with no fries) and cheese curds. Drinks were over priced.
