A good place for a burger and a fishbowl drink. The server was great. We haven't visited in over 20 years, but we loved what they've done with the place.

We would return to this restaurant again. The fries were great. My burger would have been amazing if the bun had been toasted and the burger was not well done instead of medium like I had ordered. I was not that hungry so I just gave it to my kids who will eat anything. If I had been hungry, I... More

We went here on a Saturday during dinner time, so we should have expected a long wait - we got lucky as someone just got up when we walked in, but the line got huge behind us - be mindful of what time you are coming as this is a really small restaurant. We had been here many times before... More

We love to stop here when we're in the area. They have delicous and juicy burgers, ketchup and mustard aren't needed unless you like the added flavor. Now, they have a very nice gluten free menu, offering a GF bun!

we always stop at Monk's for a meal when we visit the Dells. The meat is so juicy, it melts in your mouth. Excellent Bloody Mary's as well. Staff is always friendly, and atmosphere is fun. Highly recommend this place!

I sat at the bar and looked over the menu, couldn't decide between a Ruben or the Jalapeño Cheddar burger. When speaking with the waitperson about my impending decision, he asked if I had ever had one of their burgers, "that's what we're known for" was his reply. I ordered the jalapeño cheddar burger with grilled onions and battered french... More

We visited Monks Bar and Grill after a nice day at Mt Olympus. We arrived around 6pm and had no wait for a table or bar seat. We chose to sit at the bar which also had the kitchen area right in front of us. We had 2 appetizers, order of Cheese Curds and a order of Wings. Both were... More
