The wife and I have enjoyed the food the three times we have visited. I prefer the steaks, she prefers the pasta. The desserts are very good as well. They also make a very good brandy old fashioned which matters in Wisconsin.

Service slow, food expensive. Good bartender.
Nice decor. Perhaps understaffed servers and kitchen.
Outdoor dining is available. There is also dinning upstairs, but narrow stairs.

Great appetizers - don’t miss cheese curds (it is Wisconsin) and artichokes wrapped in bacon. Very nice wine selection. And lots of variety on the menu (steak, pasta, fish, chicken) and all good. And the huge slices of fresh cake, yum.

I would call this the nicest (most upscale) place we have to eat in Wausau. Servers are professionals and everything I've ever had is good. But make sure you save room for dessert, because the carrot cake and chocolate cake are the best!
