Let's start with the original Monk's Bar & Grill located in Downtown Wisconsin Dells, named after Monk Heineke. What makes Monk's one of the memorable restaurants in Wisconsin Dells aside from the best burgers in the Dells, is the University of Wisconsin Badgers' memorabilia. It's a shrine to the red-and-white because Monk's sons played football for UW-Madison back in the late 1950s.

Showboat Saloon - Wisconsin Dells Bars

Showboat Saloon

Just down the street is the Showboat Saloon, with its Tug's Kitchen restaurant. Located in a 100-year old building with a distinctive wedge shape, Showboat's always housed a bar, except during Prohibition, although some say drinks were still available through a speakeasy in the basement of this Wisconsin Dells restaurant and bar.

Mr. Pancake

The landlocked Mr. Pancake restaurant in Wisconsin Dells looks like a paddlewheel boat. Why? Because the owners wanted to give patrons the feel of "dining on the water."
