This is our 3rd time eating at High Rock cafe, but both previous times we dined for lunch. This time we wanted to try dinner. When we arrived, it was busy, but we still were seated right away. The server checked in pretty quickly, and took drink and appetizer order. We had the pork potstickers, and it was really delicious.... More

This is 1 of my fav's. Great food, great atmosphere. Stop while Downtown shopping or come for a great night out. Not the usual local fare or bar food.

New to the Dells area I stopped here on a Saturday for lunch with some family members. We had the special of the day which was a beef dish that was just excellent. The waitress was attentive and very pleasant. We will be going back.

Limited menu and very little effort put into presentation. I ordered a Chicken Caesar Wrap and the dressing was all down at one end so the whole thing (besides that end bite) was terribly bland. Chicken was moist but had no added flavor. Other than that it was lettuce and tomato, nothing else. My friend ordered the short rib tacos... More

Often over the years when you go back to a restaurant, it either deteriorates or settles into status quo. That's not the case with this restaurant. We get to the Dells about once a year, usually during the off season. So this is our 4th year going to High Rock. It's one of the highlights of our visit! The first... More

Recommended to us by a nice police officer who asked us if he could help us. I guess we looked lost. Service was good; everyone was nice. The food was delicious and nicely presented. Both my husband and I had pasta dishes. Prices were reasonable. Atmosphere was pleasant and not too loud. We were able to have a conversation without... More

The food was good, reasonably priced. Service was OK. Big points for clean family friendly bathrooms. Wifi was completely dysfunctional which is important since the Dells gets horrible cell coverage.

From the moment I walked in I had a notably enjoyable experience. The hostess provided a warm welcome and our server Debbie took good care of us. My meal - Hail Caesar Salad, Cup of Loaded Potato Soup, and Pecan Chicken - was some of thr most Flavorful food I have EVER tasted. My compliments to the chef. Yummy in... More
