“A Place You'll Remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Having read other reviews on Monk's Bar and Grill, it seemed like a great choice for entertaining out-of-state friends. I was not disappointed. The restaurant has a definite "Wisconsin theme" in it's decor and on it's menu. The french fried cheese curds and
beer battered onion rings made a great introduction to the rest of our meal. There were three of us. I had the veggie burger, which is the best I've ever been served. My two friends were
equally pleased with the bacon cheeseburger and Philly sandwich. The high ceilings, skylights,
and wood and brick decor were very comfortable and inviting. Our waitress was friendly, attentive, and seemed to enjoy serving us. Everything came promptly, with a smile, a desire
to know if there was anything else we needed, and exceptional food.

The absolute best burger i`ve ever had in my entire life!! You owe it to yourself to try one.It`s situated on Broadway in downtown Dells. I wish they would consider bringing back the mushroons they used to serve years ago! Love the fries too!!

“Family tradition for decades!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I have enjoyed Monk's hamburgers since I was a child......50 to 60 years.....it is hard to visit
the Dells with out going to Monk's or Nigs (across the street). Both are just good old fashion fun!!
