The best burger in the Dells served in a fun atmosphere. While the downtown location is definately a bar, families come in during the day. I wouldn't bring my children at night because it is a bar but during the day I felt very comfortable

Go for the food, plan to wait for the service. We are not the type to expect immediate service, but we waited almost 10 minutes after being seated to get a visit by a waitress, and afterwards her attention was spotty. Food was great, though - worth the wait, just leave some time...

Everyone from the hostess to the waiter were very friendly and engaging. We had a table with 2 adults 3 teens and a child. Our meals ranged from salads to cheese curds, to burgers. No one went away hungry. Food was served hot and waiter was attentive to our needs.

Great beer selection, wings, and sandwiches. We prefer the downtown location--better bar ambiance. And our server Steph really did anticipate our beverage needs and showed up accordingly. If I owned a bar I would hire her.

Every time I come to the Dells I MUST go to Monks. One weekend I drove 180 miles each way in one day just for a Monk's original burger!

Monk's is nice but if you don't want to be in a sports bar atmosphere then don't go. The onion petals we had were very good. Service was good if you wanted to go for a quick beer.

from the minute we walked in, until the time we walked out, the entire staff (our waiter was Jake, who did an outstanding job) treated us well and made us feel like regulars (this was our 1st time ever in the restaurant). Everyone in our family enjoyed their meals and the 2 beers we tried were good. Would definitely return... More

Wandered in, and really liked the place. Small, but the food was great and the staff were really friendly. Good burger. Been there twice now, even with all the choices in the Dells.
