“Good stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We use trip advisor for every for every vacation we go on. It never let's us down. It was not wrong about Monks either. One of the best places I have ever ate. We love the atmosphere and the food was sensational and the service was the best we ever had!!! Our waitresses name was Mandi....she was attentive and caring and just did a GREAT job. I have never left a restaurant and remembered the waitresses name days later but Mandi was fantastic!!!! I will be recommending Monks Bar And Grill to everyone we talk to that is going on vacation in the Dells.

“Good food and great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We went here to grab a burger with some family members. The prices were good and the burgers were very tasty. We got a basket of fries that we split among the 4 of us and still had fries leftover. We also tried the fried mushrooms and enjoyed those as well. Had to try the signature drink Purple Monkey and it was great! Since it was my first visit we got the Purple Monkey deal (drink, keep the glass and a t-shirt) for $20. Two souvenirs for $20 is a steal in the Dells! Great atmosphere and family friendly.

“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.

“So Yummy!”

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!!
