A must when you come to Wisconsin Dells. The burgers are really really good, and the atmosphere is fun and casual.

This basically is a hamburger joint. The food was very good and enjoyable but don't come here if you want a huge variety of types of foods.

I dined here for lunch with the fellow parents on my son's basketball team when we were in a tournament in the dells. The Philly Cheesesteak was okay, but the service was incredibly slow. In addition the wait staff was fairly inattentive and kind of rude. Try somewhere else.

seems many people were not pleased with Monk's. it's a burger joint/bar so their expectations may have been a bit out of whack. we sat in the bar area and had quick, friendly service. hamburger was, as always, very good!

This is the first time I have eaten here and I really liked it. It's the place in town and thought I'd give it a try. It serves typical Americana food: burgers, fries, deep-fried whatever, salad. I had a plain ole' burger and it was delicious (juicy and perfectly cooked to order). A great beer selection, too. The service was... More

We went here with a larger group and didn't have to wait long to get seated. Food was fantastic and well worth the small wait. The service was good. We would definitely visit again

Our family has been coming here for as long as I remember and it's always fantastic. You have to get a burger here! It's in my top 3 all time favorites! Their fries and curds are also excellent. Don't miss out on this place!

My husband and I went in here to eat one day and it was completely packed. We finally got two seats by the bar and ordered a couple bloody Mary's. They were very good and spicy. I had asked for a water and the waiter had forgot about it (understandable considering how busy it was). Finally found another waiter 20... More

Very good place to eat. Burgers were as expected, but their fries and cheese curds are the best I've ever had something about what they fry them in make them perfect! Food isnt pricy but the alcoholic drinks are! The hurricane drink was very good!

I seriously can't believe this place has so many good reviews. My family of 7 ate there because of these good reviews and half of us got sick. Their food tastes like old freezer food and the amount of salt is insane! I guess if you like to drink and eat salty food that tastes like it's been sitting in... More
