We visited here with family on Saturday afternoon. I had the monster burger, beer battered French fries with Monk's spicy ranch dipping sauce & Monk's pickles. My burger was greasy, but good. My husband has the mushroom & Swiss Monkburger, beer battered French fries & Monk's pickles. Certainly not the best burgers & service we have ever had, but acceptable.

Food and service were excellent! Burgers were delicious and my daughter said the chicken nuggets were amazing. Great cheese curds and a good selection of beer. We'll be back!

We have been stopping here for many years when in the Dells. Always a great burger and good sides. Service is always top notch. Fresh made food, that is perfect for lunch. Friendly people, and a laid back atmosphere make this a must return trip.

I had a pretty good burger when I visited. I also tried their signature drink (can't remember the name). That was also a pretty good drink. Overall a fun experience.

If your looking for cold beer greasy burgers and fries this place is it! The downtown is small so get there early. We have not been to the second location so I can't say anything about its size.

This was a nice place for dinner. We found out afterwards that they had two locations and we went to the one without live entertainment :(. The food was good. Service could have been better.

Stopped into Monks and like normal the food was hot and delicious. Burgers were tasty and juicy. Chicken cordon blue was very good also. Bartenders were very nice. Went to watch Wisconsin badgers play Michigan. Sorry outcome but Monks eased the pain of the loss. Lol. We will definitely return to Monks next time at the dells.
