“Great view and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Tree-hugger vegetarian wrap was awesome! Teens had pasta and enjoyed it. Hubby had the meatloaf sandwich and wasn't crazy about it, but he has food allergies and something didn't agree with him.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Our family was in the Dells for Spring Break and found this place to eat one night. The staff was friendly, the waitress was knowledgeable and the food was a very pleasant surprise. The salads were excellent and their sandwiches are unique and tasty. We loved it so much we came back the next night. We would highly recommend it.

“Great ambiance, outstanding food for a family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Our family of 6 (3 adults and 3 kids) had a great time at the High Rock Cafe. This is a small restaurant with excellent food, great ambiance and good service. We sat on the second floor which is quieter than the ground level where the bar is located. The food was outstanding. As appetizer we had calamari that was tastefully prepared with sweet chili sauce. Our kids loved the flavor and creaminess of the cheese on the Big Kids Mac and Cheese. Their Pesto Pasta (The Harper) was also very tasty and creamy. The Wisconsin Pride Pasta with Beef was delicious thanks to the house sauce and cheese. The Ahi Tuna appetizer was not as good as the other dishes. Portion size is large, so we shared the plates and, for an extra nominal charge, they separate the portion in two and add breadstick making the meals filling and affordable. The waitress was very helpful and good care of us.

“My new favorite place to eat on vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

My family decided to stop here for dinner on the first night of our spring break vacation. I can honestly tell you I didn't expect to have such a wonderful meal on this trip. Having cooked in a previous life my standards are fairly high & not often met when I eat out... High Rock not only met but far exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed the "field & stream" which is their version of a surf & turf, every bite melted in my mouth. We were really looking forward to trying something off their dessert menu but the meal portions were more then most people could eat in one sitting. My kids (11 & 13) enjoyed the experience so much that the convinced us to stop back to try the desserts on Saturday while walking around downtown. Second trip there was just as good as the first. Crabcakes were wonderful & the blueberry ala mode was delicious to the last bite. It was all a little pricey but rest assured it is worth every penny. My hat is off to owners, you earned 4 more patrons that will be back the next time we vacation here. Thank you for giving us such a great experience on our vacation.
