Two of us stopped in for cocktails. The bar tender was a little to busy (?) to serve us in a timely fashion. We were two of only four at the bar. The band playing was a very poor hillbilly band with bad equipment that had loud buzz, so bad in fact that you could hardly hear them sing. Looking... More

Whenever we are visiting the Dells, my wife and I like to plan a meal at the "Embers" Recently, we went for the Friday night fish special. We arrived at the bar at 4:30 pm for the half priced appetizers and drink specials. Not only were they excellent but the staff at the bar were very enjoyable to meet with.... More

This isn't the cheapest place in town, but it sure has excellent food. I had the prime rib special, was great, price reasonable. Wife had fettuccine with shrimp, generous portion, and the shrimp were large!! Nice assortment of rolls with the meal also. We saw that they even have a nice childrens menu. Always thought this place would be to... More

We met my parents at the House of Embers in the Dells to celebrate my mother's birthday. They had been there before, but we had not. The service was very good, and took the time to answer our questions. The food was served as we had requested it. We all had steaks, which were done correctly. If you like a... More

When we asked the locals for a recommendation for a good steak and a relaxing glass of wine, they recommended the House of Embers. The service was excellent. The menu diverse. The food was outstanding and served promptly and efficiently. We had a steak dinner and a crab legs dinner with excellent wine. We would definitely go back to the... More

This is a must stop for dining in Lake Delton. The ribs they serve are the best I have ever had. Nice restaurant with a slight resemblance of a great supper club. You can't go wrong at the House of Embers, we highly recommend it!

It sounded like a good deal but believe me it ain't On the "Early Bird" dinner menu there is a $20 Surf & Turf featuring a small Filet of Tenderloin (pretty good) and Crab Legs (terrible). If I had a "do-over" I would not order this selection. There are some fish entrees around $14. which look to be a better... More

Thank you for dining at the House of Embers. Sorry you were not pleased with the Early Bird Special - Petite Filet and Snow Crab Legs for $19.99. The Snow Crab legs served with this special are a 6 - 8 oz serving which is usually the weight of the cluster. The Snow Crab leg shell tends to be softer... More

Ordered a surf and turf meal for my birthday... my filet came covered in a weird pepper sauce/demiglace that was not mentioned in the menu. I just wanted a good steak, so it was very disappointing. Kids liked their kiddie cocktails with gummy worms. Over all very over-priced for the quality. I almost asked for my meal to be free... More

Thank you for having your birthday dinner at House of Embers. Not sure why you visited us way back in February 2016 for your birthday and decided to write a review in October. Just wanted to respond to the Asian demi- glace which is served on our Petite Filet. All of the sauces served at House of Embers are made... More
