Description: Monk's Bar & Grill has been known throughout the Midwest as THE place...
Monk's Bar & Grill has been known throughout the Midwest as THE place to go for a great burger and friendly service, since 1947! Here at Monk's we are committed to delivering exceptional food, beverages and service efficiently in a clean, friendly, sports-oriented atmosphere every minute of every day. We serve our fresh, home-style burgers in a clean, family-fun filled sports atmosphere. The Original! Where our famous burgers began, Monk's Downtown Dells has made Monk's a Dells tradition for more than 65 years! The historical value of the building plays a key part in making every dining experience memorable. Open daily at 11am, we offer our full menu until midnight, but the party continues until bar time every night! One of the oldest restaurants in the Dells area, Monk's tradition of great service from some of the friendliest staff in the area is what has kept business booming for over 60 years!

Good Burger, good atmosphere, nice servers. We were 12, on business and hanging out looking for good food and good times. Monk's took care of all of us. Although it was crowded with a wait, the staff was very attentive and we moved in quickly. The food was good and the beer was cold. I'll visit here next time I'm... More

I only order burgers out here and there and I'm always grossed out. I'm picky to say the least but the burgers at monks are the best any of us, especially my husband who eats burgers everywhere. Can't wait to go back!!!

The service here was very friendly and welcoming. We were warmly greeted and taken to our table by Ashton, who also happened to be our server. She was polite and gave suggestions from the menu.

We often say, unless you've been to Monk's, you haven't been to the Dells. My husband and I stopped on our way to MN for the good old stand by (burger) and the monkey fries. Their home made chips are awesome. While we love their burgers they have so much more. The nachos are to die for at the Wildness... More

I've been visiting Wisconsin Dells for many years and this has become a favorite of my family. Its located downtown, and during the season you should expect to pay for meter parking. Their burgers are out of this world. They are a kid/family friendly environment although they are also a full service bar. The wait staff always greets us with... More

One of the best burgers ever. Best fries. Too loud and crowded with kids! Great for a family, not for couples without kids.

Every time we visit the dells we make sure to eat at Monks. We love the burgers and the staff is always great. The kids love that they get a frisbee with their kids meal
