“Birthday Surprise!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We had previously eaten dinner elsewhere, but I had read reviews of this cupcake that they have here at High Rock Cafe. So I needed to try it.

We were only going to get cupcakes, but then this appetizer Cheese tray stuck out, and we decided to order it as well before the cupcakes. The Cheese tray was amazing. It came with various fruits (grapes, apples), had pickles, crackers, olives and 3 cheeses.. Brie, Cheddar and Gorgonzola (Blue Cheese), sausage.. it was amazing!! I couldn't wait for this cupcake I was going to have for my birthday.

We ordered the Half-Baked Vanilla cupcake with Cookie dough in the center, with cookies n cream frosting. Sounds great right? What came out.. was a pile of OH MY GOSH!!! Served on a large plate, it came out split in half, with a dollop of whipped cream and a mint leaf and cookies crumbled all around it. It's very rich, but you cannot leave a bite behind. We walked out of there, or rather, wobbled out of there very happy. Everything was delicious. I wanted a cupcake for my birthday, and boy did I get one!

“Good food relaxing place”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The Dells are absolutely insane, but this restaurant offered a little bit of piece and quiet from the craziness.
The drinks and flood were good, nice sized portions, and friendly staff.
If we are ever (stuck) in the Dells again, we'd probably come back!

“Love this place!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

High Rock Cafe has got to be my favorite restaurant. We eat here every time we visit the Dells. Great, imaginative food! We go with our two young kids and always ask for a table by the upstairs window. The kids like to watch the traffic below and it keeps them entertained during dinner, which makes for a peacefull dinner experience for Mom and Dad. The beverages are great, the food is even better. Great choices for side dishes...I had the cabbage salad with my beef wrap and it was wonderful. The kids enjoy the "Dirt & Worms" dessert and always get a kick out of it. Delicious! We'll be back...soon!

“Good food, good location, good service”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

When researching restaurants to check out on our honeymoon, my husband and I decided we'd really like to try this one out. We stopped in one night and were not disappointed. We tried to go one evening but it was really busy, which I took as a good sign, so we went back the next night. Still busy but we were able to be seated immediately at the window bar (which we loved because it's great for people watching). Our waiter was very nice and attentive and the menu was very interesting. Lots of unique dishes. My husband had the shrimp sandwich and I had the alfredo with chicken. We both loved it! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
