A little bit finer casual dining

The food here is pretty great and so are the drinks; prices are on the high side even for a more adult restaurant (though they do have a kids' menu!) but they're pretty much in line with the rest of the Dells and not greatly more than you'd pay for a burger at Moosejaw.

High Rock is a lovely place with very good food and excellent service. Staff has always been friendly, welcoming, helpful and efficient. I've eaten there about three times and have found their food to be very good to great. Prices are fairly reasonable as well, for the quality of the food and service. The second floor dining room is wonderful,... More

We were seated immediately upstairs for dinner. We were overlooking Broadway which gave us really nice views. It took about 5 minutes before our server took our drink order but she was taking care of 5 or 6 other tables as well. The food came reasonably quick and was delicious. We had the walleye, chicken pesto pasta and our 10... More

We enjoyed the variety in the menu. The rasta pasta was awesome. My husband had the walleye which was also good. The carrot moracan soup was very tasty. Very nice ambience. I had the rock ravioli with rhubarb, garlic, tarragon....

The place looks like it would be super expensive but it is not. We were seated right away by a very friendly hostess. She put us on the upper floor right by the windows over looking downtown, great view for people watching in the downtown Dells! Our waitress was very well versed in the menu and knew her stuff! I...

It's not easy to find good quality food in the Dells; the bar, we have found, is pretty low compared to a larger city. If you're looking to get away from chains that all offer the same items loaded off the Sysco truck, High Rock is definitely one of the places you'll want to visit. We are pescatarians that have...

I went with a large group of people and we had a short wait. The service and food were excellent we went back a second night! I had a wrap both times with tator tops and it was the best wrap I've ever had. I also ordered the potato soup one night which was also excellent. I ordered the kitkat... More

A group of six of us went to the Dells for a quick get away. Our first night we went to High Rock and we were pleased with everything. The service was great, drinks were perfect and I had the best meatloaf (All American) I have ever had. If you have time. Please make sure to sit at the top... More

We were very pleased with our late lunch. There were many interesting choices. My husband and I both had wraps, which were large and delicious. I had the tree hugger wrap which had a wonderful assortment of fresh vegetables. The fresh fruit with the kid's entree was quite nice. The atmosphere was casual and calm. We were seated by the...
