We were looking for something different in the Dells than the standard tourist fare, and we found it in the House of Embers. My wife had one of the best steaks she has ever had, the salad dressings were homemade, and the desserts are nothing short of amazing. I had the ribs. I'm a southerner, so I know what southerners expect from BBQ. Looking at some of the previous reviews, people came in with the wrong idea. This is not southern BBQ. These are something completely different and they are amazing. Re-adjust your expectations for these. It was expensive ($100 for a family of four) but well worth it. We will be budgeting for a meal here on return trips to the Dells.
