“Food and Service Great, But Kids Meals Are Way Overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

The waitress we had was absolutely fantastic. The food was very good. The only complaint we had was the outrageous prices on Kids Meals. $5.99 for a hot dog and small cup of applesauce is just not right; drinks are not included in at this price. However, the great service and food made it worth the visit.

“Great Spot for Late Night Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Since we got in town late we decided to forego dinner until after the water parks closed for the evening. So around 10:30 we headed out to locate a place to grab dinner. First, we tried Marley's, found out that they stopped serving food at 10 pm (on a Friday), and then attempted to go to Buffalo Phil's, whose doors were locked. After nearly giving up, we ended up at Monk's at the Wilderness. I have dined here before, and knew we would get some good food. When we went in we were told only the bar was open, but the kitchen also remained open until midnight. They have ice cold Spotted Cow on tap, which is great. (Spotted Cow is brewed by New Glarus and only available in Wisconsin, and is a must-try.) Both of our burgers were great, the service was warm, friendly, and fast and the prices aren't too bad for being at a resort. This restaurant is a must for a quality late-night meal, to watch virtually any sporting event, or to get an ice cold brew.

“Best Food in the Dells!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This was by far, the best food and best service we had while we were in the Dells!! We went to the "Wilderness" location. We each had something different and all of our meals were great!! Our waitress Olivia was amazing!! She was always ready to fill our "needs" without hovering and had a wonderful and fun personality. We will definitely make it our first stop when we return to the Dells! Thanks for the food and the fun!!

“Excellent family dinner stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We came here after reading the reviews and were very impressed. Great decor, neat elevated booths. It is a bar and grill but the restaurant is totally separated. Great hamburgers and frys. Great place for large groups. Warning, if you get the deluxe nachos, come hungry. They looked huge!
