Description: Monk's Bar & Grill has been known throughout the Midwest as THE place to go for a great burger and friendly service, since 1947! Here at Monk's we are committed to delivering exceptional food, beverages and service efficiently in a clean, friendly, sports-oriented atmosphere every minute of every day. We serve our fresh, home-style burgers in a clean, family-fun filled sports atmosphere. The Original! Where our famous burgers began, Monk's Downtown Dells has made Monk's a Dells tradition for more than 65 years! The historical value of the building plays a key part in making every dining experience memorable. Open daily at 11am, we offer our full menu until midnight, but the party continues until bar time every night! One of the oldest restaurants in the Dells area, Monk's tradition of great service from some of the friendliest staff in the area is what has kept business booming for over 60 years!

“Burgers, Burgers, Burgers!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

A must when you come to Wisconsin Dells. The burgers are really really good, and the atmosphere is fun and casual.

“Hamburgers!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

This basically is a hamburger joint. The food was very good and enjoyable but don't come here if you want a huge variety of types of foods.

“Food okay but service is very slow”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

I dined here for lunch with the fellow parents on my son's basketball team when we were in a tournament in the dells. The Philly Cheesesteak was okay, but the service was incredibly slow. In addition the wait staff was fairly inattentive and kind of rude.
Try somewhere else.

“good burgers”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

seems many people were not pleased with Monk's. it's a burger joint/bar so their expectations may have been a bit out of whack. we sat in the bar area and had quick, friendly service. hamburger was, as always, very good!
