This bar/grill has a great outside deck and view of the water. The overpriced hamburger was poor tasting and Very Overpriced.

Recently, We were the only ones who were outside eating on a Tuesday night. This place used to be packed with customers, some eating some playing volleyball. It was eerily quiet.......... As far as... More

It was quite but everyone was polite and nice. It was dark so couldn't see a view. We shared the nachos and it was huge and delicious. Three people were behind the bar but apparently only one knew what to do. This could be an amazing place if everyone was on the same page. Prices were good and even better... More

Four of us came here for lunch on a Monday. We sat outside with a beautiful view of the water. Our food was delicious. We were all adults, and ordered a few beers. They had a nice selection. Not sure if they have a menu for kids - they might, we just didn't look for that. We highly recommend the... More

Stopped to share lunches before checking into Aloha Beach. Food was average. Service wasn't anything special. It was lunch time but not really busy. Seemed to be full of locals so maybe just not the right spot for tourists.

We recently moved to the area and some friends of ours who grow up in the dells take us to a new restaurant every Thursday night to get us familiar to our new area. We tried this spot last Thursday and LOVED it! The server was spectacular, friendly, and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was served fast and hot,... More

We found this place a long time ago and made it our "go to" place to eat. We visit the Dells at least twice a year and never failed to stop for dinner. Only kidding about the best kept secret because we told everyone about it, it was that good. This last summer we arrived with a party of 11... More

Been going to Port Vista for years for their famous giant steak and we were so bummed out to find no steaks on the new menu. Also not as many items as before on the new menu. Brought a group of friends along for their first visit and bragged about the steak they were so disappointed. Bartender told us that... More
