Port Vista is a nice restaurant right on the lake with wonderful views in the summertime, great outdoor deck. The food and service is good. We were a little bummed out when we found out they no longer offer their famous 32oz steak.

We loved this little out of the way place. We came here on our first trip to the dells. My hubby had the all you could eat fish, and I had a delicious steak. Hope to come back here again!!

This bar/grill has a great outside deck and view of the water. The overpriced hamburger was poor tasting and Very Overpriced.

It was quite but everyone was polite and nice. It was dark so couldn't see a view. We shared the nachos and it was huge and delicious. Three people were behind the bar but apparently only one knew what to do. This could be an amazing place if everyone was on the same page. Prices were good and even better... More

Four of us came here for lunch on a Monday. We sat outside with a beautiful view of the water. Our food was delicious. We were all adults, and ordered a few beers. They had a nice selection. Not sure if they have a menu for kids - they might, we just didn't look for that. We highly recommend the... More

Stopped to share lunches before checking into Aloha Beach. Food was average. Service wasn't anything special. It was lunch time but not really busy. Seemed to be full of locals so maybe just not the right spot for tourists.

We recently moved to the area and some friends of ours who grow up in the dells take us to a new restaurant every Thursday night to get us familiar to our new area. We tried this spot last Thursday and LOVED it! The server was spectacular, friendly, and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was served fast and hot,... More
