8 Best Day-Drinking Locations Around the Dells

A wise man once said “It’s not day-drinking unless you start in the morning!”

Wisconsin Dells is home to many bars and restaurants where you can leisurely spend a few hours with friends and grab yourselves some drinks. Although most of them don’t open until around lunchtime, there’s no shame on starting with a morning Bloody Mary at your place. After all, you are on vacation.

1) Edge-O-Dells Bar & Restaurant

With NFL and Badger Specials, Edge-O-Dells Bar & Restaurant is a great place to grab some drinks with your buddies. Besides a full bar, Edge-O-Dells is known for their Broasted Chicken, so I recommend ordering yourself a good portion to compliment your drinks. During the week, enjoy their Happy Hour in the Bar Monday-Thursday from 3pm-6pm.

2) Bobbers Island Grill

With a large patio, multiple TV’s, and some of the most unique drinks around, Bobbers makes the list for a great place to grab a few drinks. On Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, their signature “Bobberita” is 1/2 price, so naturally you have to get two! Bobbers also offers juicy burgers for you to enjoy while having your “liquid lunch”.

3) Boomtown Saloon

With live entertainment on select nights as well as southern style cuisine, Boomtown Saloon is a fun place to relax with friends and enjoy a couple of cold one’s. As a Nashville-themed bar, you’ll find a variety of different signature cocktails named after country singers, and of course, plenty of moonshine!

4) The Keg & Patio

Between the bloody’s, mimosas, and tap brews, The Keg & Patio offers a great atmosphere to grab some drinks with your buds. They are open every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so you can load up on carbs before you start your day-drinking excursion!

5) River Walk Pub

With a view overlooking the Upper Wisconsin River, River Walk Pub is a great place to chill out with your friends and have a few drink. The bar is in the center of the restaurant and the entire place is decorated straight out of the Wisconsin Northwoods. With great food, taps, and a full bar, you’ll find River Walk Pub on River Road just over the Downtown bridge.

6) Spring Brook Sports Bar & Grill

Have you seen those pictures before of the monstrous Bloody Mary’s? Well, you’ll find one at Spring Brook! This $39 drink is served in a 50oz pitcher with 2 beer chasers. This Bloody Mary is topped with traditional toppings as well as wings, burgers, onion straws, and more! It’s literally topped with a meal that can feed 2 people! Spring Brook also has 28 flat screen TV’s in the bar where you can watch the game and enjoy daily specials!

7) Showboat Saloon

On Sundays, Showboat Saloon is the perfect place to spend the day because they offer $3 taps all day! They have 24 taps with delicious beers and ciders from all over the midwest and country! This is sort of a paradise for those of you who are really into craft beer. Are you visiting during the week instead? Every Monday thru Friday from open until 6pm, all taps are still only $3 for their Happy Hour!

8) B-Lux Grill & Bar

If you have a sweet tooth, try one of the alcoholic shakes at B-Lux! The Kentucky Brainfreeze with Makers Mark, Caramel, & Peanut Butter is to die for! B-Lux also has a full bar and features 8 beers on tap, including their B-Lux House Brew! Also, be sure not to miss their game day specials!
