I love the atmosphere of the place, and it's an amazing restaurant, but I really do not enjoy the menu options. If you're interested in a pricier, classy restaurant with spices and vegetables in your food you've probably never heard of before, but they're probably needed, come here! I wish that they're just add something to the menu that's more... More

We recently ate here with another family- 7 of us total. I had the chicken pecan with risotto- fantastic depth of flavor, refreshing risotto. My daughters had the All-American- meatloaf with carbs. There wasn't a speck to take home. Also tried was the : half chicken, fish tacos, bacon Mac and cheese and quesadillas. Service was good, food was delicious-... More

Decent food but overpriced. Not the place to go if you want a filling meal at a reasonable price. I have spent less money for better food

The Best Dinner! So delicious-great menu with lots of variety-excellent drink menu. Desserts were awesome! Nice deck with tables outside to enjoy street performers-a little $$ compared to the other options on the strip-but well worth it! Staff was friendly and provided excellent service. Will Return!

We came here towards the end of summer, which is normally a pretty busy time in the Dells, but we were seated right away, and the restaurant wasn't too crowded either. We were seated outdoors, which was really great, partly because of the nice weather and partly because of the good view of the downtown area. We were able to... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Dells when most of the town was shut down, but this little gem of a restaurant was open and crowded on a Thursday night. The service was excellent, the atmosphere great, and the food was wonderful! Definitely leave room for dessert!

Didn't actually eat there. Went with intentions to eat but being small town MN college students nothing really sounded like what we wanted. Had 2 cocktails and they were fantastic!

We now make a point to stop in whenever the kids' activities bring us to the Dells. A rare option for good food downtown, this restaurant allows the parents to eat something tasty, innovative, and relatively healthy while not taking the kids too far from the action. (Sit upstairs and at the front for a quiet break from the chaos... More

NOT a cheap restaurant, but the food is worth it. The steak on their lunch menu was SO amazing I had to order a second one to take home. Their bruschetta is fantastic! And the 'adult' root beer is a wonderful treat. HIGHLY recommend!!
