Had a great late night dinner. Went here twice while in Wausau and enjoyed it both times. Wait staff very knowledgeable of the brew, not a beer drinker but staff was able to recommend a beer to my liking. Would go again.

I had been to the Madison location and the food was amazing. So I wanted to take my friends to the Wausau restaurant to feed them some good food. And we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly and helpful! Highly recommend to anyone looking to eat great food!

I'm kind of on the fence for rating this place because the building/setting/facility is VERY nice. Quite spacious and comfortable. And the service was good too. But for a "Brewing Co" kind of place, I'm basically going for the beer and so that's really what I'm judging them on. On that basis alone, I'd say that the Stout and Porter... More

Accommodated 26 people for dinner nicely. Service was a little slow but it was a Friday night with a large group so understandable.

If you are looking for a "special" experience,this place has a way of ruining that notion quite quickly.The bartenders are all rude.Like they feel they are doing me some sort of a favor,just for them showing up to work.The food is good,and on certain visits the waitresses are good,but that's hit and miss.

Great Dane is a well established local company in the Madison area, and we're thrilled to see them in Wausau as well. Their microbrews, made in-house, are excellent, and food is great as well (better than your typical bar/pub fare). Atmosphere and location are excellent. Great for a date night or dinner with the family. Highly recommended, we'll continue to... More

We had a truly nice dining experience in the bar area. There was plenty of room to accomodate us (party of 8) and the service was fine. I highly recommend the pan seared ahi!

We had our wedding here and have been back so many times! Their soft pretzels are so delicious and they have amazing macaroni and cheese. Always have great service and the array of beers to choose from is great!

It was later at night (post 9:00) and my friend and I were in the mood for a steak. Most of the usual suspects were closed by then but we thought we would try Great Dane. There was almost no one in the place and some people were cleaning but the food we got (a blue cheese steak and Poutine... More
