Went to Monks for dinner with the family and loved it. We all had different burgers and thought they were all great! It a fun place for families, even with small children. I highly recommend Monks for dinner or lunch next time you're in the dell's.

I've been to Monk's downtown, and the other location numerous times. Excellent burgers, great service, and prices right on par with other pubs in the Dells. Will be back time and time again!

Good burgers. Nice atmosphere. Fries are always crispy. They have a great variety of burgers. It is a very relaxing atmosphere and they are not pushy. It is a nice place to sit inside or outside and talk with friends.

If you are in the mood for a good burger, this is the place for you. If you are looking for anything fancy or elaborate, I would recommend something else. The menu here is basic and not particularly extensive, but the burgers were juicy and tasty, which is what we were looking for.

It's a sports bar in the middle of the Dells - you would think it would be wild and manic. We ate at an outside table and it was very relaxing. The food was great - the family all chose something different and everyone cleaned their plates. Very attentive service and reasonably priced!

We ate at Monk's based off a friend's recommendation. It was fantastic!!! The burgers really are some of the best and most interesting concoctions, and the waffle fries are crispy & the best I've ever had!!! My brother had the homemade chips and didn't care for them, his wife had the beer battered fries and they were good, but my... More

They have the best burgers in the area. They are always busy, but it is worth the wait. It is a bar, but it is family friendly.

We have eaten at both the downtown Monks as well as the Monks at the Wilderness. The downtown Monks is far superior to the Wilderness location when it comes to the food. The burger is one of the best burgers I have ever had. Very juicy, seasoned perfectly and just melts in your mouth. We always eat at Monks downtown... More

We ate at Monk's because of a local recommendation and are certainly glad we did. The burger was huge and very messy, which is what made it so good. The service was friendly and attentive. This is a great place to go for a luscious, so-not-good-for-you meal!

Brought our family to Monk's based on reviews. We easily found seating and our waitress was great. Appetizers were ok - cheese curds and onion rings. The burgers were fantastic; yum! Kids meals were ok and my daughter liked the soft pretzel she got to have as her meal. :)
