Stopped on a car trip and found this nice downtown restaurant with interesting drinks. The crusted walleye was great. Best corn dog ever, guess the lobster corn dog had us at lobster.

Is a 25 minute wait time from sitting down to having a drink in front of you acceptable? Highly irritating. This has happened twice in a row. I know, why would I return? Monday night blues? No crowds, nothing clearly evident to deter progress except...More

A beautiful restaurant in the heart of downtown Wausau! My wife and I enjoy a weeknight out at the grill with their signature chop salad and a glass of Pinot Noir! A great atmosphere with great service !

My fiancé and I had a get away weekend here. This is probably our 3rd time visiting. Both the food and the service are fantastic. The bar tenders and waiter were equally great. Will definitely be back. A must when visiting Wausau!
