Monk’s Bar & Grill has been known throughout the Midwest as THE place to go for a great burger and friendly service, since 1947! Here at Monk’s we are committed to delivering exceptional food, beverages and service efficiently in a clean, friendly, sports-oriented atmosphere every minute of every day. We serve our fresh, home-style burgers in a clean, family-fun filled sports atmosphere. Although we are famous for our burgers, we can satisfy any of your menu needs. We have a full menu ranging from burgers to sandwiches and wraps, salads, appetizers, pizza (at varying locations), kid’s meals served on a Frisbee they get to take home and including some unique vegetarian options.

After a day at the water park we stopped here for dinner on a Fri night around 5:30pm. We beat the rush so were seated right away. The atmosphere is typical sports bar themed restaurant. But luckily the many TVs were quiet enough so folks could hold a conversation without shouting. Our server was prompt & courteous and stopped by... More

Don't miss the great hamburgers at Monk's! The appetizers are terrific too.This is a casual local joint that is adult welcoming yet totally kid friendly. They have a great beer selection too. If you are in the Dells, be sure to stop at Monk's. You won't regret it.

If you are in the Dells and want a good burger and are looking for a no frills kinda place, this is it! Go to the original location downtown! Other entrees are okay and fairly average but the burgers are great! Quick service with a friendly staff!

My husband is still raving about his beer and burger at this place! We were all happy with the food, service and atmosphere! We will definitely be returning to this restaurant. We have been to the Dells 6 times and this was our favorite place for dinner so far - and we go out to eat a lot.

Monks is famous for their burgers. They are the juiciest and most flavorful of any you will have in the Dells. We always go to the one downtown as we are going through the shops. Monks is a must stop if you like a really good burger.

Went to Monk's on Saturday night with 11 people. Service was AWESOME and food OUTSTANDING! They were happy to accommodate our group (with prior notification!) No Reservations allowed! Watched different games; atmosphere was cool; even the kids liked the place! Burgers were THE BEST!
