    River's Edge Pub & Grub Stories
    2013-06-27My hubby and I stopped for a drink one day, very nice and friendly. We knew we wanted to go back and try the food. Took my son(very picky & and hard to entertain) and took my parent's. All I can say is WOW, AMAZING, WONDERFUL.. the burgers are huge and the coleslaw awesome. More food then we all could eat. Wonderful service to top it off. I must tell you I am one person that is hard to please and they were a 5 star by far. P.S. my son loved it.
    2013-01-06We were introduced to River's Edge years ago by people who owned a house on Lake Delton. It's a great Wisconsin place - fish fry on Friday, prime rib on Saturday. Good food, friendly people. Get a reservation.

    2011-08-17We had a great time at River's Edge Pub & Grub during our visit in July! It was recommended to us by a staff member at a local hotel and we would recommend it as well. It reminded of the restaurant in the movie "The Great Outdoors" with Dan Akroyd and John Candy.
    2009-05-15Love the food and atmosphere at RiversEdge. I've been coming there since I was a kid and always try to make it there each trip. Great Place!
    2009-03-08We always stop in at the Rivers Edge and have been for so many yrs I can't even remember. Your ribs are wonderful and the atmosphere is so unique. On March 15th, 2009 it is my daughter is celebrating her 21st birthday with our family and I am so pleased to see that you are opened because we have lunch with you every time we visit and we will again next wk. The Dells are alive and well and I can't wait to see it next weekend and next summer. Thirty yrs of coming to visit and we will continue for another 30yrs.

    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.

    Choosing “Best Of” Food Finds is Delicious Duty

    monksWhen you have more than 100 restaurants, confectionaries and specialty food stores to choose from, as you do in Wisconsin Dells, the process can be incredibly satisfying.

    Setting out to catalogue some of the “best of” food finds in the Dells was no small task. Locals have their favorites and proved a good starting point for recommendations. Sheer traffic to eateries was another tip-off. Of course, the ultimate critique comes in the taste. Here is a sampling - it’s by no means an exhaustive list, as that would require a book - to help guide your culinary decisions the next time you’re visiting Wisconsin Dells.


    Best of Cheese
    It’s Wisconsin, so we had no choice but to start the list with cheese.

    • For fresh cheese curds in all their squeaky goodness, shop Market Square Cheese. For the deep-fried variety, the Sand Bar's version goes great with their homemade hot tomato relish. 
    • Best grilled cheese sandwich goes to the Cheese Factory Restaurant - it was named one of the Top 5 in the country by celebrity chef Rachel Ray.
    • Best mac and cheese for grown-ups can be found at High Rock Café - they call their rich and creamy entrée Big Kid Mac & Cheese and you can even customize the spiciness of this traditional favorite.

    Best Burger

    The undisputed winner here is the Original Monk’s Burger at the classic Monk’s Bar & Grill in downtown Dells. This is the burger that started it all, or so it says on the menu. It’s a fresh patty simmered on the seasoned grill. The grill is right at the front of the joint with the aromas piped outside - the original owner called it “aroma marketing.”

    Best Ribs

    House of Embers claims honors in this category. In 1959, Wally Obois decided his new restaurant would be famous for hickory smoked BBQ ribs. And so it came to be. Today his son Mike uses the same technique to make these deliciously tender ribs using a specially designed smoke house and a secret BBQ sauce. And they are.

    Best Friday Night Fish Fry

    • For atmosphere and food, the Friday Night fish fry at River’s Edge Pub & Grub can’t be beat - the cod is broasted and the dining room features a 4,000-gallon aquarium filled with local fish.
    • Also in contention - the classic Wisconsin fish fry offering at Italian restaurant Sarento’s Restaurant, of all places, and the fish plate at Ravina Bay Bar & Grill, which pairs well with their homemade clam chowder.

    Best Deep Dish Pizza

    • In its menu description, Uno Chicago Grill claims to have invented deep dish pizza. We don’t know about that, but there’s no arguing their pizza, with dough made fresh every day, is delicious. The Wisconsin Dells restaurant is owned by husband/wife team of Mike and Laura Nate.
    • Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co., Buffalo Phil’s Pizza & Grille, Pizza Ranch of Wisconsin Dells, Pizza Villa and Pizza Pub are shoo-ins in the broader pizza category.

    Best Steaks

    Wisconsin Dells is known for its quintessential Wisconsin supper clubs and at these supper clubs you’ll find the most delicious steaks around. In this category, you won’t go wrong making reservations at Field’s at the Wilderness, Ishnala Supper Club, Del-Bar, Kaminski Bros. Chop House, Copper Oak Steak House or House of Embers.

    Best Sweet Treats

    • For donuts, the Paul Bunyan’s Northwoods Cook Shanty variety served at breakfast and in their bakery is legendary. Holiday Shores Camp-Resort makes theirs homemade and their guests always line up at the counter before the first donuts come out of the fryer.
    • For desserts, the list is a mile long, but you should, at least once in your life, try any flavor of homemade cheesecake at the CheeseCake Heaven Deli Restaurant, the to-die-for dessert bars at River Moon Café, artisian cakes at the Cheese Factory Restaurant, or a one-of-a-kind flavor creation at Cold Stone Cremery.
    • For homemade fudge, it’s a tie between Swiss Maid Fudge and Wisconsin Dairyland Fudge, both celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2012.

    Wisconsin Cranberry Confections

    Did you know Wisconsin is the nation’s largest producer of cranberries? For that reason alone we were compelled to make this a category onto itself. And the winner is Cranberry Connections, where you can indulge in five flavors of cranberry ice cream, all made at a small dairy right in state, cranberry raspberry salt water taffy, white craisin pretzel bark and their #1 seller, craisin cashew crunch. The candy looks especially pretty when served in one of their collectible cranberry glass bowls.
