Best Cheese Curds and Burgers around. Also have delicious Cubano's. Beer always very cold and fresh. When they have their homemade potato chips and dip, they are a must.

Stopped at Monk's with my girlfriend passing through on a road trip and wow. The cheese curds were great, the burger melted in your mouth, fries were crispy and tasty and of course the Wisconsin cheese curds were top notch. It's a nice little hole in the wall where most seating is at the bar, so the atmosphere is great.... More

We LOVE Monks. We make a point to come EVERY.SINGLE.TRIP. to the dells. Which is at least once a year. The Monk Burger and cheesecurds are the perfect pair and like nothing you've ever had anywhere else. A MUST. The staff is ALWAYS great as well! Very friendly and quick and for some reason always hilarious.. probably because they laugh... More
