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!
