The case could be made that, per capita, Wisconsin Dells has more supper clubs than anywhere else in the state. How many have you visited?
Del-Bar, Field’s at the Wilderness Both these supper clubs were designed by James Dresser, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright. Del-Bar, which was established in 1943 as a roadside steakhouse located between Wisconsin Dells and Baraboo, thus the name, was created in the classic prairie style. Field’s at the Wilderness bears a more contemporary take on the architectural principles espoused by Wright. Both have enviable wine cellars and feature mouthwatering cuisine.
House of Embers Famous for hickory smoked BBQ ribs and homemade desserts. In business since 1959. Friday night fish fry, Saturday prime rib. The recipe for the cinnamon rolls is original. During the summer months enjoy a drink on the outdoor patio.
Ishnala Supper Club Perched above Mirror Lake, this land was once used by the Ho-Chunk as ceremonial ground. The current restaurant amazingly still has the original stone fireplace, log walls and staircase from the early 1800s trading post erected at this site. Frank Sinatra music lilting in the background. Lobster and New York Strip on the menu. Open May through October.
Kaminski’s Chop House Hand-cut, dry-aged beef, well-chosen wines and extraordinary service define the experience here. Located on the top floor of Chula Vista Resort, the views to the Wisconsin River add to the ambiance.
Double Cut Charcoal Grill/Liquor Bar A modern restaurant with supper club roots evident in the menu, heavy on steaks, chops and seafood. A charcoal grill imparts a distinctive flavor.
Copper Oak Steak House Try a beef selection – they prepare it charbroiled over a combination of Wisconsin hickory and Texas mesquite on an open-flame grill. Specialty desserts created in their own bakery.
