The downtown monks is by far the best experience. Friendly staff. Only downfall is that the downtown one is smaller than the one on the wilderness resort. The food is much better downtown. Will be definitely going back next time we are in town.

Went to Monks for the first time, it was clean and the service was good. I had the cubana and it tasted great, the chippers are my weakness, they bat out fries any day.

Good food. Decent bar for beer and standard drinks. Not too knowledgable about cosmos or amaretto sours. Second time to eat here. We ate outdoors and watched a Packers game. Would eat here again.

On our BFF weekend we come to Monk's for our first and last meal. It is the best burger you can ever eat! The cheese curds, onion rings and French fries are amazing. It's great food, fun atmosphere and super service! Everyone has to Eat At Monks!!!

I went here with my husband and 2 year old son for dinner. We had cheese curds that were good and ordered a burger and a Philly. It was decent food, but nothing we couldn't get anywhere else. We loved that they served my sons food on a frisbee he could take home though!

We had lunch there while on vacation and we really enjoyed it, the food was delicious. The price was also really good for what you get and in tourist town.

I absolutely LOVE Monk's Bar & Grill. I am partial to the location on Broadway as I enjoy the atmosphere better. The burgers and fries and fabulous.

We go to the Dells twice a year for work and this is where we head afterward for a dinner of great pub burgers, beer (though they no longer serve the beer in a mug as big as my head) and excellent service. Nick is our favorite bar manager (missed you last visit, but we'll see you in a few... More
