“Cool building and great food”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Although it's pricier than other spots, you can't beat the food quality and selection, as well as the atmosphere of this place. The building itself is worth a visit, as it's an amalgam of various additions to the restaurant's original log cabin. They're done in a Frank Lloyd Wright design style, which makes for some interesting dining areas. Good cocktails; very good food.

“Charming restaurant, fabulous food”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were delighted by the service, attention, ambience, and quality of all parts of our meal. We were visiting the Dells for a family gathering that included celebrating our parent's 50th wedding anniversary. The Del-Bar could not have been more receptive or accommodating. We had a lovely table with two of the best servers I have ever had (Renee W and Michelle) who smiled and laughed through all the antics of the toddlers and the teens at our table. The food was exquisitely prepared ~ from the tempura asparagus appetizer to my mouth-watering scallops, every bite was delicious. Every one at the table agreed. The Del-Bar was a new experience for us but I would return to the Dells if only to eat there again!

“Great seafood!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Every sign will point you to Crabby's Seafood but Del-Bar is the best! Surf and turf upscale restaurant so don't wear your tank top in this place. In case you do, they are kind enough to give you a t-shirt to wear and take with you for no charge as one of my misguided friends learned.

“As Good As We Remembered..”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

It had been several years since we lasted visited the Del-Bar and we thoroughly enjoyed our return visit. The supper club atmosphere is very tasteful and the menu has enough range for whatever you are hungry for. Everyone in our party of four enjoyed their dinners - no disappointments. Service was a little slow, but not an issue. We will be back!!
