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.

“Still has it”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Original Broadway Street location still serves well-seasoned handformed burgers that bring back memories of previous childhood trips. Friendly bar atmosphere has two floors available for seating, choice of bar or table. Fries and onion rings not needed but available, as are other goodies such as nachos, wings, and soft pretzels. One of upper rooms can be booked for private parties. Families, friends, and couples all equally comfortable in this place.

“Best burgers ever!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This is the place to go to eat in Wisconsin Dells. I love their burgers and have yet to find a better one. A short walk from the Wilderness!

“hold on to your wallet tourist trap”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Don't get me wrong They have great bar food but holy cow batman 2 of us spent $40.00 for 2 sodas 2 cheese burgers 2 half size sides ( onion pedals and cheese curds). I have no idea what it would cost if we had a beer or mixed drink. This is more of a tourist trap than a bat and grill.

“Solid burgers...”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The burgers and sliders were very good, but they charge for lettuce and tomato. I never understood that. The fries were plentiful and the shake though a bit too thick was tasty and hit the spot.
