A work-group of six stopped by for drinks after a long day of meetings and stayed for dinner. It was a great decision. No one in the group was disappointed. Our entrees varied from burgers to seafood. I went with a Mushroom and Swiss burger and wasn't disappointed in my choice. With the grill being attached to a bar there... More

The food is really good and there is always something unique on the menu but what I love the most during nice weather are the open windows to sidewalk traffic.

We call ahead to reserve a table to see the band. And were told they don't do that. But when we got there, they have tables reserved to see the band! We ate the bar and the food was great. To bad we could not reserved a table.

Great food, service and view of the 400 Block in Wausau. We had the avocado salad (pictured) and a spotted cow; both fantastic. I've also had the bloody Mary's there before, best in WI! Definitely stop by for a great lunch or dinner and friendly WI service.

I won't say that we were disappointed, but we weren't thrilled either. The waiter was prompt and attentive. The food was prompt. My wife had a BLT and I had the mushroom and Swiss burger. I suppose it is trendy to have slightly different flavors for sauces. The sauce on the burger worked, but the sauce on the BLT was... More

This is by far the best and most well rounded restaurant in Wausau. The food is always amazing and a notch above your expectations. Service is fast and the staff is always friendly. The owners take a lot of pride in their store and have been welcoming to work with other businesses in the Wausau area. As far as food... More

We only visited for breakfast so cannot speak to other menu choices. However, if you stay in downtown Wausau, it's a nice little spot for a quick breakfast that is filling and tastes good. The coffee cups on our table were never empty - a real plus. The breakfast menus are complete enough for everyone in our group to find... More

We stopped in here one afternoon to grab some lunch while walking through downtown. We are new to the area and I'll admit i was a bit excited after seeing how nice downtown is. It was dark and VERY dirty. Our table was sticky everywhere! Food was below standard for everyone in our party. We were all very disappointed. We... More
