I stopped in here because the sign said karaoke. It turns they do not do that anymore just didn't change the sign. I had one drink. The bartender was a cool guy!

Enjoyed our dinner, especially the wings ("rub and tug" spices was fabulous). Friendly service, good location (surprised that you have to pay for street parking until 9pm in the Dells), and kid-friendly. Been Jonesin' for their wings since we got back from our trip.

Great atmosphere and location if you are spending the day or night downtown. We love this place for the beer selection and happy hour pricing. the Showboat has decent pricing for being located in the downtown dells. When you can get a pint of microbrew for a good price and happy hour pricing that included old fashions you can not... More

They had an awesome tap beer selection. We didn't try to food but it smelled great. A of other people had the chicken wings and said they were great. The bartenders were very friendly. They had $2.50 pints everyday till 6pm. That was a great deal. The other people in the bar were really nice. Will go here again.

The Showboat is by far a must stop bar in the Dells. During the day you have your locals who are the most friendliest people. At night you will see everyone dancing and drinking. The staff is amazing and make you feel welcome. They have many choices on cold beer. You will not be disappointed at this bar.

We visited the dells for a long weekend bachelorette party. We went on Friday and Saturday nights. The DJ was great at reading the crowd and made for fun dancing both nights. It was busy both nights but there is plenty of room with the regular bar, stage, lower bar, patio and surrounding areas. Drinks were decently priced. It was... More

Great wings and a friendly atmosphere. I would recommend you stop by if you are in the area. It was clean and the service was fast. The owner even stopped by and chatted for a minute. I will definitely be back.
