    River Walk Pub Stories
    05/16/2009We visit a nearby resort annually, and a priority on our itinerary is to dine on the deck at Riverwalk Pub. We dine with our young children, and still our visit somehow feels like we're on some luxurious vacation. I'm often take back at the very modest menu and modest pricing, because the outdoor setting you offer is amazing! Still, we're always pleased with the simple, but good food and our children always seem very content with their food and coloring page, allowing us to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. We wouldn't stay in the Dells without having at least one meal at the Riverwalk.

    Dells Restaurants With A Water View

    wisconsin-river-restaurants-25River Moon Café

    It would be easy -- and a crime -- to drive by this gem. A bit hidden in a little enclave of shops behind Mexicali Rose restaurant, the café is perched right on the river next to the Kilbourn Dam. In fact, you're so close to the water that when you dine outside, you can hear the squeals from the folks taking the jet boat ride. The food is fresh, fresh, fresh. We asked owner Mary Helland about some of the favorites on the menu and she said the pumpkin bread and the spaghetti sauce, both recipes of her mom's, top the list.

     

     

    river-walk-wisconsin-dells-25River Walk Pub

    This place is perfect for a Friday fish fry in the Dells, a leisurely dinner of slow-roasted prime rib, or maybe just an appetizer basket of beer-battered cheese curds. Just don't leave without stepping out the back door for a stroll on the Downtown Dells RiverWalk that is just a few feet from the pub's outdoor dining area.

     

     

     

     

    rivers-edge-wisconsin-dells-25River's Edge Pub & Grub

    This quaint stop, just a few miles out of town, sits right on the Lower Dells of the Wisconsin River. Customers like to call it a best kept secret. Not anymore.

     

     

     

     

    Ravina Bay Bar & Grill

    Located on the South Shore of beautiful Lake Delton, directly across the bay from the Tommy Bartlett Show. They are known for their wonderful al fresco dining experience and fabulously fresh fare including flatbreads, sliders and wraps.  A Wisconsin Dells locals’ favorite.

    While not on the river, another restaurant with incredible water views is Ishnala Supper Club which is literally perched over pristine Mirror Lake.

    glockenspiel-downtown-dells-29German Glockenspiel - Downtown Dells

    Take the children to see the giant Glockenspiel with a musical re-enactment of the legendary Pied Piper of Hamelin every half-hour, on the hour. The legend goes that the Pied Piper rid the town of Hamelin of its rats and mice by charming them away with his flute playing. When the citizens of Hamelin refused to pay the piper the price they had agreed upon, he charmed away their children in revenge.

    The German Glockenspiel with its fairy tale re-enactment is FREE making it one of the best Wisconsin Dells deals. It's located in the 400 block of Broadway, Downtown Wisconsin Dells.

     

    dells-river-walk-wi-dells-29Dells RiverWalk

    Stroll the Dells RiverWalk with vistas of the Wisconsin River and its sandstone bluffs now easily accessible to the public for the first time in 75 years. This ¼-mile paved path offers Dells visitors not only a breathtaking view of the Dells' unique scenery, but sprinkles in game tables and comfortable benches along its expanse in invitation to sit a spell and take in all of Mother Nature's glory. Walk, bike or run the Dells RiverWalk, but be sure to put this special experience on your Wisconsin Dells itinerary. It's one of the most scenic Wisconsin Dells activities available and it never disappoints.

    The Dells RiverWalk entrance is located at the 100 block of Broadway in downtown Wisconsin Dells. It's free and open to the public year-round.

    Play On In Wisconsin Dells01/02/2012If you're among the myriad of parents and families in town for youth sports tournaments, we have a stong hunch you'll be looking for things to do between the games. And boy oh boy, do we have some super recommendations for you!Read More
    Play On In Wisconsin Dells
    01/02/2012

    The Dells is quickly becoming a sports mecca for youth tournaments, events and camps, and the 2012 warm weather season stands to be the best ever, with basketball, softball and volleyball filling up the calendar. For filling down time between games may we suggest some non-competitive activities. Then fill up on good eats to keep those energy levels high.

    Start outdoors - the fresh air will do you good - with a Duck tour of the Wisconsin River. If the coach gives the go-ahead, head to an outdoor waterpark like Noah’s Art Waterpark, where you can try the new Quadzilla racer slides (remember, no need to be too competitive, as it’s primarily intended as adrenaline-inducing fun). Or go from screaming for the team to screaming on a roller coaster.

    Balance your time in the sun with some indoor fun.

    In Downtown Dells, you’ll find Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum, a place loaded with exhibits that are oddly captivating. Next door is Wizard Quest, a full-size labyrinth adventure in which your goal is to find and free the wizards of the realm. For kids with an artistic streak, maybe siblings who are along to cheer on a brother or sister, there’s Paint It! Pottery Shop, where they can create their own masterpiece. Wild Fun Zone is the place with the big gorilla on the top of the building and bumper cars, mini golf and laser tag inside.

    On the Wisconsin Dells Parkway, there’s the Tommy Bartlett Exploratory - Interactive Science Center, with more than 175 interactive exhibits, including a virtual sports center that’s sure to be a hit for obvious reasons. Adjacent to Great Wolf Lodge is MagiQuest, a four-story live action adventure game with players using magic wands - score!

    After you’ve worked up an appetite, take the team to one of the two Monk’s Bar & Grill restaurants in Wisconsin Dells for a classic burger the locals love. Other player favorites include Pizza Pub, Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co., Buffalo Phil’s Pizza & Grille, and River Walk Pub.

    Go team!

    Classic Charm - Downtown Wisconsin Dells06/17/2014Vacationers typically want two things from a getaway. They want “new” as in new and fun attractions, shops and restaurants as a way to keep it fresh and feed their explorer side. And they want “old” as in charming, classic, please-don’t-ever-change to feed their nostalgic side. It’s a real feat when a destination can deliver both. Wisconsin Dells is one such destination and they do it best in their downtown river district.Read More
    Classic Charm - Downtown Wisconsin Dells
    06/17/2014

    Vacationers typically want two things from a getaway. They want “new” as in new and fun attractions, shops and restaurants as a way to keep it fresh and feed their explorer side. And they want “old” as in charming, classic, please-don’t-ever-change  to feed their nostalgic side. It’s a real feat when a destination can deliver both. Wisconsin Dells is one such destination and they do it best in their downtown river district.

    So let’s start with the modern. Might be easiest to classify these as the “uptown” offerings of downtown Dells. There’s a contemporary, hip vibe that’s taking hold in the 200 block of Broadway. Here you’ll find High Rock Café, an eatery with a foodie following thanks to its ingenious seasonal menus and craft cocktails. Down the block are MACS - Macaroni And Cheese Shop that’s as far from the box version as you can get, and Monk’s Bar & Grill and Dells Distillery restaurant and bar. Across the street is CheeseCake Heaven, part deli, part bakery, with homemade goodies, including to-die-for secret recipe cheesecakes in tons of flavors. 

    For shopping, Alpha Beta Karma boutique brings out the best in women with its on-trend apparel, fashion-forward footwear and artisan jewelry. Winnebago Fine Goods & Gift Shop, while a staple for Minnetonka moccasins since 1949 and still one of the country’s largest purveyors of the iconic and very comfy footwear, has evolved into an emporium for casually hip clothes, especially for men. Around the corner on Oak Street, Robin’s Nest Restorations & Gifts rounds out the fashionable finds with upcycled décor and more.
     

    What’s a vibrant downtown without entertainment. On warm summer evenings you’ll see crowds gathering at the corner of Eddy and Broadway to enjoy a salsa band one night, a polka band another, or maybe cloggers or a high-energy drum line another.

    For grown-ups, the festivities can continue inside at Showboat Saloon, with its prohibition past, or in their open-air beer garden known as Mama’s Garage. There’s a similar indoor/outdoor combo at The Keg Bar & Grill/Baja Cantina. For family fun, try Wild Fun Zone, Wizard Quest and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum.

    Now for the charming. The classic boat tours of the Upper Dells of the Wisconsin River, courtesy Dells Boat Tours®, depart from downtown Dells where Broadway dips to meet River Road. So do the jet boat tours. Take a turn on the RiverWalk for a preview of the scenic beauty that’s in store, and make a point to pop in the H.H. Bennett studio/historic site after to compare your cell phone photos with the photos taken by Henry Hamilton Bennett from the 19th century, considered “the Golden Age of landscape photography.” Or you can grab a bite to eat while gazing out at the river views. River Walk Pub is the very definition of a friendly Wisconsin pub, with a menu heavy on burgers and a classic Friday night fish fry.

    While on the subject of food, the fudge and confection shops, one on nearly every block, will wear down your willpower in short order. Plus there’s a place called Oodlesmack Popcorn that has gourmet candy-flavored concoctions that you probably dreamed about as a kid, along with classic caramel varieties for the purists.   
    Bowling is classic and so is Chalet Lanes. Ditto for photo souvenirs and the old-time portrait studios. And mini golf at Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf and Timber Falls Adventure Park.

    The mom-and-pop hotels and motels downtown have a charm to them that’s just can’t be replicated anywhere else. 

    Downtown Wisconsin Dells is a walkable, wonderful stretch of all that’s good about getting away.
