Description: Originally constructed in 1850, the Delton Academy was a one room Baptist Boys Schoolhouse. In 1865, it became the Delton Methodist Church. In 1894, the church was expanded and the entryway and side room additions were built. What was originally the entrance was replaced with the G.A.R. stained glass window and the bell tower was added. During this period it was also used as the G.A.R. Hall. The Grand Army of the Republic was the Civil War version of the V.F.W. for the Union army. In 1868, General Order #11 of the G.A.R. called for May 30th to be designated as the day of memorial for Union veterans; originally called "Decoration Day", it later evolved into the U.S. national Memorial Day holiday. The G.A.R. was also active in pension legislation, establishing retirement homes for soldiers, and many other areas which concerned Union veterans. The influence of the G.A.R. led to the creation of the Old Soldiers' Homes of the late 19th century, which evolved into the current United States Department of Veterans Affairs. The back room, bathroom and kitchen addition was added sometime in the 1950's. In the 1970's, the building was then purchased by a group of local residents and it became the Old Delton Academy Antique Mall. In the spring of 2007, the building underwent a revamping and became what it is today; the oldest public building in southwest Wisconsin and home of the Brat House Grill. The building still retains it's original wood floor, wainscoting and window frames. It's remarkable what great shape the building is in after it's extensive and varied history.

This is a bar, we were fortunate to be there for a late lunch so the crowd was small. The food was excellent!! Especially the hommade Parmeson chips! We had Brats and sat off from the main bar with the huge TV screen. Waitress was fabulous. Would go back many times!

After a long day travelling to Wisconsin Dells we just wanted to grab something quick and tasty without too much fuss and bother and this place fitted the bill

The restaurant - especially the bar area - was very busy and noisy, but it was football Sunday evening and they have a sports bar kind of atmosphere. The dining room was quieter and had space. They have a lot of choice on their menu in the way of sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs. Our brats were great (we went for Jalapeno and Andouille), and they have lots of flavours and options for relish etc. We also had onion rings which were very good. Beer prices very are reasonable with my soda costing only a buck less than the local beer.

Given they were quite busy service was quick and efficient and all the staff were friendly

We had the Friday Fish Fry at the Brat House Grill last night. It was excellent again. We always make sure we eat here when in the Dells. I totally recommend going here if you are in the Dells for a drink and or food. The services is always fast and friendly.

We ordered Brats with sauerkraut, home made fry chips and coleslaw to go. Double check your food if their busy. We were missing the 'kraut. They fixed it right up though and the food was great when we ate it back at our motel. If you choose to stay
there to eat they have a big screen tv and a neighborhood bar atmosphere.

Love the old building and stained glass. Great place for locals during the Dells Summer rush. Food is always very good, especially their homemade chips! Service will vary based on how crowded they are but they have always been good to us. Child friendly with a great atmosphere.
