best damn burger

This was the best hamburger I have had in a long time. I ordered the mushroom swiss burger and was not disappointed. Cooked to medium well with outstanding fries. I hope to return.

We have been to Wisconsin Dells many times, but have never eaten at Monk's. We were not disappointed. I had the chicken salad and my husband had the Reuben sandwich. Both were very good. The food came out in a timely manner and our server was very nice. Would definitely go there again.

Stopped for a late night snack and drinks. A little pricey for bar food and drinks, but they had a friendly staff and fun atmosphere. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

I've probably reviewed Monk's before, but after stopping at Monk's at the Wilderness on my way home from Florida, this is still THE BEST BURGER EVER!!! I am surrounded by burger places in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and Monk's rules.

My four year old daughter ordered a hot dog. The bun came out and it was covered in green mould. I do not know how the cook could have not noticed this. It was disgusting. Overall food was greasy and nothing special

Stopped in for lunch and had a turkey burger and fries and my wife had a mushroom burger and fries. Food was very good and our bartender/waiter (James) was excellent. He was friendly, courteous, humorous and attentive. Like any tourist area it is a bit pricey but not too. Place is also very clean and has a lot of character... More

Very good food! My wife and I heard that Monk's had good food and was a fun place to eat. But it wasn't until we went there last weekend that we experienced the cuisine for ourselves. The Cubana was fantastic! The beer-battered fries were also exceptional!

I had the opportunity to visit Monks on two occasions during a 3-day conference in Wisconsin Dells. I spent quite a bit of time with other conference-goers in the sports bar. The food and drinks were great. While I enjoyed myself both nights, the atmosphere in the bar the first night was noticeably better due to one bartender in particular...Red... More
