“Annual Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

When in the Dells you have to stop and get a drink and a burger at Monks. And it has to be the old downtown bar. It is way too small and way too loud. But I love going here

“Good Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This place is definitely a sports bar / restaurant, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The food here is good, and at a decent value. We really enjoyed the burgers, but there were plenty of other options on the menu too. If you are looking for a good sit down place for the family, this is a good place to go.

“Really good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We came just for appetizers and desert. Service was very quick and very friendly. We got the wings and cheese curds, both of which were very good. Prices are great on everything as well. For desert we had a sundae, which our son loves because it had a little chocolate monkey on it.
