Originally constructed in 1850, the Delton Academy, was a one room Baptist Boys School House. It continued as such until the time of the Civil War. In 1865, it became the Delton Methodist Church. In 1894, the church was expanded and the entry way and side room additions were built. What was originally the entrance was replaced with the G.A.R. stained glass window and the bell tower was added. During this period it was also used as the G.A.R. Hall. The Grand Army of the Republic was the Civil War version of the V.F.W. for the Union army. In 1868, General Order #11 of the G.A.R. called for May 30th to be designated as the day of memorial for Union veterans; originally called "Decoration Day", it later evolved into the U.S. national Memorial Day holiday. The G.A.R. was also active in pension legislation, establishing retirement homes for soldiers, and many other areas which concerned Union veterans. The influence of the G.A.R. led to the creation of the Old Soldiers' Homes of the late 19th century, which evolved into the current United States Department of Veterans Affairs. The back room, bathroom and kitchen addition was added sometime in the 1950's. In the 1970's, the Methodists built a new building across the lake and vacated this one. It was then purchased by a group of local residents and it became the Old Delton Academy Antique Mall. In January of 2000, the building was aquired by it's present owner and after an extensive remodel, became an internet cafe. In the spring of 2007, the building again underwent a revamping and became what it is today; the oldest public building in the southwest Wisconsin area and home of the Brat House Grill. Given it's age, the building still retains it's original wood floor, waitscotting and window frames. It's remarkable what great shape the building is in after it's extenvise and varied history.

A very good brat.

I was born and raised in Wisconsin but have lived elsewhere for the past thirty odd years. You just cannot find a brat equal to those made in Wisconsin. The Brat House Grill satisfied a craving and we are delighted we stopped. My wife had the Kielbasa (she kindly shared a taste with me) and I... read more

If I am in the area, this is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the food and assortment of brats. I love the homemade chips in 3 flavor choices. Oh, I almost forgot about the chili as it is perfect as it has just a little bite. I love watching football here also as they usually bring... More

When my wife and I walked in we were taken back by how cozy the place looked and felt. Stained glass windows dating to the beginning of twentieth century. It is a seat yourself place and as we walked in we were greated by the friendly staff. They have a great selection of bar food and of course anything you... More

Stopped in for a few beers and had the Kielbasa. Was pretty tasty and the chips, which I assume are homemade were also good. If you're looking for an array of sausages to try, give this place a whirl. Would definitely come back.

Had stopped at Monks for a Burger for before going to the movies. However we were told there would be a 30-45 minute wait. Since this didn't fit our movie time we decided to head down the street to The Brat House Grill. We had the Fish Fry once in the past and it was good so we were hoping... More

We stopped for lunch on our way out of town after visiting one of the attractions in the area. I ordered a mushroom Swiss Brat but what I got was a burger. Not exactly happy since I really was in the mood for a brat. The burger was also more expensive so there's that. Burger was just okay, it had... More

Who serves children soda in the bottle with no straws, (too short anyway) or glasses? There were children's plastic cups at the bar which I had to retrieve. Could not find a handicap entrance, restrooms were down some steps. Food was just okay. It is a bar not a restaurant so expect interesting clientele at the bar not suited for... More

Great menu with many interesting brat choices. Super nice staff. Awesome dipping sauce. Also away from the business of The Dells but yet close enough.

Stopped here for lunch and had the jalapeño burger it was good but not how I asked for it. I like a little pink in my burger and this one was definitely well done. They did have the best cheese curds in the area tough and we tried them from a lot of places! Services was also kind of slow... More
