First time at WOW. Now I know why it is called WOW. It is the first thing said when you walk in. Friday's menu has a great selection of fish/seafood along with sides. Try to make it for Happy Hour. $1.50 off drinks. Regular menu has nice variety of selections. Our friends we were with said the hamburger is "to die for." The outdoor dining is very nice. Great service. Prices are $$. Good tap beer selection if they can keep their taps going. WE did not try the game room. Next time.

A friend recommended this place to us. We had a little trouble finding it as we were not familiar with Wausau. Once there we enjoyed a good casual meal. The servings were large and we had to get to go boxes. Our server was very friendly and provided great service The arcade was a plus.

I'm only going to comment on the restaurant as I didn't experience the entertainment side first-hand. To begin, the view was beautiful! They have large windows overlooking the river. If it hadn't been raining, I might have sat outside and I don't normally side outside no matter the weather. We got there before it became super busy. Our server, Alan, was awesome! He made sure we had everything we needed. Our first appetizer took a little time, but after that the second appetizer came quickly as did the pizza. The prices were reasonable. I didn't give it five stars as the menu selection seemed limited. I didn't see any vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free options. Even after the restaurant got busy, our server was on top of his tables. It wasn't too loud, so you could enjoy conversation with your table mates. They had plenty of space for large crowds too. The happy hour specials were good.

Right alongside the river with great outdoor seating and delicious food choices, the atmosphere is one to enjoy! Inside, sit at the bar and watch your favorite sports games, join the kids in the excitement in the arcade of games or a round of laser tag. Located along a foot path for hiking along the river, Kayak down river or drive down from the 400 block after a concert on the square!

I have never reviewed a restaurant before but I just had to discuss this one on my wife's account BECAUSE IT WAS JUST THAT HORRIBLE!!! We got there and sat down on the patio only to be told by a waitress that I had to go and check in with the bartender first. We ordered food and wine and was brought someone elses food. When we did finally get our food we had no utensils, was anyone to be found....nooooo....so we literally had to go to the waitress station and get our own. We then asked for another glass of wine, what were we brought...the cheque!! What a disgrace!
