Description: Monk’s Bar & Grill is known throughout the Midwest as the place to go for delicious craft burgers and great service. Our fun, family-friendly dining atmosphere creates a memorable visit for both adults and children. We’re not just a sports bar that loves their Wisconsin Badgers, we’re supporters and fans of local youth sports and schools in our communities. The Wisconsin State Journal has stated, “The (Monk’s) burgers have taken on somewhat of a legendary status in Sauk County.” We have to agree, our burgers are pretty fantastic because we pride ourselves on quality ingredients. Hours of operation are subject to change based on season. Please call for most accurate closing times.

Love this place and it's location to the Wilderness - easy access from the resort. Menu is good but could be better; suppose it's a sign of the times with prime rib only on Saturday's and very little red meat beyond burgers on the menu the other days of the week. Figured you're in Wisconsin w/plenty of beef around that options would be more pervasive. So, on a Friday night got the "catch of the day"; fish which is also a Wisconsin staple. Just looking for more choices as the place is great and the service is solid but need to add to the menu.

Very disappointing when after a 45 minute delay getting our food in a restaurant that was not even half full and an explanation given only when I asked. The sorry given by the server was a good start, but not a good finish! No manager visit and no offer for any reconciliation except more appetizers after we already had appetizers. Food was good but was overshadowed by the silent waiting game by us and four hungry kids It's called customer service, look it up sometime!

went in for the happy hour specials, which were a great deal. but I was disappointed with the lack of professionalism of the employee's "servers" and management. workers were not very pleasant, made me feel like an inconvenience. the place was clean and fun atmosphere, but everything else was sub par. veggies came from a can and the food was very poor quality and undercooked. Will not return, and will not recommend to anyone.

We always have to stop at Monk's for burgers when we go to Wisconsin Dells! Their newest location at the Wilderness is awesome!!!!! Same great taste as the Monk's downtown but more spacious and kid friendly! We sat in the "cage fighting" area, but snuck down to the ivy covered wall at "Wrigley Field" to take some pictures! Overall a great experience and can't wait to get back to the Dells for a Monk Burger!!!!!!!

I have been going to Monk's for their burgers everytime I visit the Dells. They are the best I have had. The pickles are great, too! The service was great and the outside dining was perfect.
We will be back again next summer!
