We had an early dinner at the downtown location. We were confused if we should seat ourselves so had to ask. And yes we were told to seat ourselves. At 530 on a Saturday there are still a number of seating options available. We sat upstairs. The service was fast. In some cases a little too fast since we weren't... More

We were in town for a softball tournament and ate almost every meal at Monk's. The food is surpassed only by the service. Can not say enough about this place. Our kids still talk about the food months later. A must if you are in the Dells.

Arrived at 5:30 on a Saturday night and while it was buys, there were plenty of places to sit. Waitress came right away and got our drinks, made recommendations on the menu. Food came out quickly and was fresh. Katie our waitress gave us excellent service. Worth the trip into downtown Dells to enjoy the original Monks.

The bartender named Red Bread was the best, most attentive, funny, and friendly bartender I ever experienced. He took care of us from the moment we sat down at the bar. This place is worth it, just for the drinks and the experience. The best experience I had in the Dells. I highly recommend Monks for the bartender. Red bread,... More

I will drive 1 1/2 hours just for a Monk burger. They are that good. I will shop some, but I come for the food. In all the years that I have gone there I have never received a bad meal.
