“Great Burgers and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Local bar / grill recommended by locals. Had the German Burger.....a burger topped with sliced brats and covered in sauerkraut and grilled onions. Mmmmm mmmmm good. Seven of us all together and everyone ordered a different burger and everyone loved their burger. Cooked to perfection. Highly recommend.

“LOVED IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We were in town for our anniversary and had our splurge meal, this was our lunch stop while braving the chilly weather in the Dells(stupid Wisconsin sometimes!) My husband and I both loved this bar and the food was delicious, great burger and fries, the service was so friendly and on top of a very busy place.

“Fun place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great food and service!! We were wondering around town when we came across Monks. At first I was worried it wasn't going to be kid friendly since it had a bar look to it from the outside. Was pleasantly surprised once inside. Of course we went on a Tuesday. We enjoyed Monks so much we came back for dinner and bought a t-shirt..

“It was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Overall, I wouldn't rush back here. The service was ok, the food was ok, the surroundings were ok. It wasn't that clean, the food was really salty and other than the salty flavor, there wasn't other flavors. We asked for a Blue Moon on tap with no fruit. When it came, there was no fruit, which was great. But as I took a sip, I noticed pieces of orange all over the glass and floating on top of the beer. I appreciate the waiter taking the fruit off, but you don't serve a beer like that, he should have re-poured the beer....without the fruit pieces floating in it. There was a tv on every wall and the volume was turned up on all of them. And music was playing, so it was noisy and almost irritating. Nothing special, won't go back.

“Disappointed won't hurry back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Family of 4 went to eat lunch there today. We were immediately greeted by several staff. Very friendly. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. For the price of a burger 6.99 to 8.99 it was really just so so. Bland flavor and on a cheap nothing to exciting bun. Fries are extra we got a nice sized basket for 2.99. That was good. They now serve burgers on one tissue paper. That was a turn off for us. To eat a greasy burger on tissue paper just a tad larger than the burger is a turn off. I understand being green but maybe wrap the bum in larger paper. I did not like my servers hands on my food. It looks hard for your staff to serve people this way. We used go here all the time. Time to try someplace different I guess.
