“Bring Back Your Old Menu!”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

2010 this was our favorite restaurant! We are a family of 5 and brought four other family members. We all LOVED this place to eat! We even picked up take-out orders to eat in our room--the SAME day as the burgers and nacho plate was TO.DIE.FOR.

We went in August and they changed the menu! The food is not at all as good and the prices are raised. The nachos are like a preppy puzzle--not nachos at all!!! Didn't like the texture or flavor. Less food for more money. Burgers are still good and the bun is better.

Sadly we won't go back because the food isn't great anymore it's not worth the price. Plus, we can get better & REAL nachos somewhere else. Sadly disappointed.

“Very impressive!”
Reviewed December 30, 2010

We stopped on looking for a local spot and we weren't disappointed! Great place for bar food and drinks but also surprisingly kid friendly.

“Homemade Onion Rings to Die for”
Reviewed August 10, 2010

We went here to eat a late lunch on our last day at the dells. We were amazed that they let you eat peanuts right at the table and allow you to throw the shells on the the ground. The food was great too. They have tons of burgers and sandwhiches on the menu but i highly recommend asking for their homemade onion rings on the side. It is very easy to locate being it is right in downtown Dells. You should definately go there.

“Go somewhere else”
Reviewed July 30, 2010

There are hundreds of other places to eat in the Dells and the best advice I can give is to go somewhere else. The restaurant appears nice and professional, however our experience proved otherwise. Our waitress claimed she could not switch an order five minutes after it was made, however she easily took off a soda that was wrongly put on our bill. The food wasn't horrible, but on the burgers we were only given one tomato slice, which happend to have the sticker still on it. When we questioned the server if they had washed the tomatoes (clearly they would have seen the sticker if the tomatoes were properly washed, not to mention nobody wants to eat a sticker) she rudely rolled her eyes and said "all that means is that there's a sticker on your tomato" and walked away. I myself am employed at a restaurant and we take our quests very seriously. The guest is always right and I couldn't believe this waitress would talk back to her guests, I'm suprised she hasn't been fired for her rude behavior. She also only visited our table the bare minimum and we had to go up to the bar to request refills on our drinks due to her negligence. The somewhat decent food you get here is not worth the horrible service and the poor quality of the food.

“good food and wide variety of beer at great prices”
Reviewed July 5, 2010

Was driving through the Dells looking for a 'local' place to stop (don't like the chains) and caught a parking space right in front of Tugs. Decided it looked like a casual local kind of place that we like, so went on in. They had the beer list up on a chalk board which drew us in to a seat at the bar. Beers ranged from local Wisc brews to Rogue, Three Floyds, Fat Tire and the like. Enjoyed a Shrimp Po Boy and Mufallata - good food. The beers were great at $2 a pint! Service was solid - the gals were attentive and food came quickly enough. Nice place.
