“Nice bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Your basic neighbor bar where you can sit and relax. Staff friendly with fast service. Drinks were a little pricey. It was quiet when we were there. Older bar but clean. I never saw a lobster tank machine before.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This bar stays full during the summer season. The atmosphere is great they had live music the night I was there and it was great. The staff was friendly and the the place overall is clean.This is a peanut bar so people eat the peanuts and throw the shells on the floor besides that the place was clean.Not to pricy for being in the dells

“Amazing Service, Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

A friend and I stopped in during a weekday afternoon of shopping in the downtown Dells. Chris was a great bartender, very courteous. He made us feel like we were regulars. Wings were amazing! Love the peanut policy as well. Would definitely return!
