    Sarento's Restaurant Stories
    2008-10-13Our first night in the Dells my wife and I ate at Sarento's and were impressed. The food was great as was the service. Even if it was a little pricey you got what you paid for, and I mean that in a good way. The atmosphere of the restaurant was really creative, it took me right back to Tuscany. I recommend this for any couple, or even small family who's looking for a nice night of fine dining.
    2008-10-10My wife and I ate at Sarento's our first night in the Dell's and loved it! The atmosphere is great, the food was even better and there was even a live singer who was really talented and took requests. The service was a little slow, but the food was well worth the wait. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Italian food.
    2008-01-22Had a very enjoyable visit to your resturant. Never waited long for anything. My husband and I have been telling all our friends about the Sarento's Restaurant. Can't wait to visti there again soon. Planning our Valentines getaway at Sarento's.

    Original People - Heather Field Sweet2010-04-02In this little community, there's a huge appreciation for originality. It's just not in the nature of the tourism owners here to think any idea is "too big" or "too out there." It's mindset that makes the people a whole lot of fun to be with and a tourism spot like no other.Read More

    What Kind of Meal Are You in the Mood For?

    The Tour de Force for Foodies Starts with Wisconsin Dells Supper Clubs

    If you can’t wait to relax over a brandy old-fashioned, munch on some Wisconsin artisan cheese before being seated, and then linger over a multi-course meal that might include yeasty rolls, crisp salad, rich soup, steak or seafood with an incredible sauce, a side of buttery baked potato or fresh asparagus, and decadent chocolate torte with aromatic coffee for dessert, then have we got the supper clubs for you.

    Field’s at the Wilderness and the Del-Bar were both designed by a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, which of course adds to the ambience of these restaurants in Wisconsin Dells.  Copper Oak Steak House, House of Embers, Kaminski Bros. Chop House and Ishnala Supper Club round out the list.  For one night, don’t lament the calories.  Just enjoy!

    Seasonally Sensational, Vegetarian, Homemade Dining

    For a seasonal menu that is beyond words, check out High Rock Café in Downtown Dells.  It recently doubled in size, which is a sure testament to its popularity with visitors and newspaper restaurant critics alike.

    For vegetarian, a pleasant surprise is the Cheese Factory Restaurant.  The entrées reflect flavors of the world.  It's a great way to be introduced to this style of cuisine.  Here’s a recommendation: Try their grilled cheese, named a Top 5 in the U.S. by Rachel Ray.

    While dining in Wisconsin Dells, enjoy the beautiful landscaping outside Sarento’s Restaurant a treat for the eyes, while the extensive Italian menu and specialty pizzas offered are a treat for the tummy.

    The surf and turf meal on the Dells Boat Tours Sunset Dinner Cruise is prepared fresh at one of the docking spots.  Their grill masters are to be commended.

    Sweet tooths should unite at CheeseCake Heaven Deli Restaurant.  The owner literally spent four years perfecting her cheesecake recipe, which now comes in 90 varieties.  Everything on the restaurant menu is homemade too – pastas, soups, sandwiches, the whole nine yards.

    Enjoy your food tour of Wisconsin Dells.

    Choosing “Best Of” Food Finds is Delicious Duty 2012-08-16For the majority of travelers, even the most disciplined, the act of eating while on vacation is often equal parts indulging, searching out favorites and trying new things.Read More
    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.

    Date Night Itineraries 2014-09-09Some of us are better than others at planning the perfect date.

    Date Night Itineraries

    Some of us are better than others at planning the perfect date. Doesn’t mean you’re any less romantic or sentimental, it may just mean you need a little help nailing down the details. That’s what themed itineraries are for. So, in the spirit of coupledom, here are five “perfect date” ideas for Wisconsin Dells.

    Nature Lover

    devils lake state parkStart out with a hike at Devil’s Lake State Park and snap a selfie at the top of a bluff. Or rent a kayak for two at Mirror Lake State Park: Boat & Kayak Rental. Follow that with a boat tour of the upper dells of the Wisconsin River, knowingly pointing out Romance Cliff. Finish up with pasta at Sarento’s Restaurant (you earned it with all that exercise and fresh air) and ask the piano player there to play your song. Then retreat to your campsite for some star-gazing.  


    This is a dinner-and-a-show kind of night. Get tickets for a top-name act at Ho-Chunk Gaming, Wisconsin Dells or Crystal Grand Music Theatre. A country performer is a sure bet for some love songs to melt hearts. Before the show, have dinner at House of Embers and ask for the two-person Omar Shariff room, site to more than 500 marriage proposals, or at Ishnala Supper Club where corner table #15 is worth the wait for the view of Mirror Lake. After the show, go for high-energy dancing at The Reef, or a quiet nightcap at Del-Bar or Field’s at the Wilderness.


    Nothing more romantic for foodies than a winery tour. If you have time, visit a trio of wineries: Wollersheim Winery & DistilleryFawn Creek Winery and Baraboo Bluff Winery. Keep an eye out for the schedule at Dells Trolley Tours. If you time your visit right, you might be able to catch their winery tour. If you’re more into microbrews than wines, there’s Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co., or Port Huron Brewing Company. End the day at High Rock Café – ask for a table on the second floor for a great view of downtown Dells. Or go for the Wisconsin River view at the elegant Kaminski’s Chop House at Chula Vista Resort.


    Focus only on each other with an escape from the real world. Get the pro treatment with a round of golf at one of the championship golf courses in the Dells – there’s Wild Rock, Trappers Turn and Christmas Mountain Village™ Golf Course. Book side-by-side massages in one of the Spa Together rooms at Sundara Inn & Spa and linger at the heated outdoor infinity pool after. Stay at a secluded B&B like Bowman’s Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast, LLC where they have an airstream trailer with private covered deck where you’ll find side-by-side vintage claw foot soaking tubs.   

    Fun Waterparks

    They are for couples in love too! Reserve a cabana, then play to your heart’s content. On dry land, go go-karting, ziplining and roller coaster riding. Or snow tubing in the winter. For a little friendly competition, there’s always bowling and laser tag.
