Ate dinner here based on two local recommendations. The experience was simple and tasty. I enjoyed the mushroom melt sandwich. It was unique and really good. I tried the carrot cake stuffed cheesecake for dessert and that too was good. Enjoyed a quick meal with a great smiley server as well.

Went with some friends to townies. Overall it was good. The food was good except for one thing. They put this crappy cheese sauce in there nachos. Ruined it for me. Then the dish I ordered had the sauce on it also. Not a good day. Everyone else liked there food. Service was great. Beer was cold. Good Moscow mules.... More

Lobster Mac & Cheese was delicious. We also tried the Chicken Jerk. Both were very yummy. Cheese curds and cocktails were a wonderful surprise also. Very friendly and great service.

Townies is right off the 400 Block in the heart of Wausau's downtown. The menu is varied and service is good. At times the portions are small and service overall has been good but can be spotty. This is a very laid back restaurant which is connected to a bar - live music available later most weeks.

The best Bloody Mary in town! Stop in for great food, great service and stay for the best live music in town! Their big screen TV makes watching the big game another great reason to visit! Tyler and Stina get an A+! Tony and Shannon and the rest of the crew make you feel right at home!

Townie's puts excessive garlic in everything... too bad. Malarkeys which is the adjoining bar had a great band... but if you aren't a local, prepare for the loneliest experience possible... there were 200 people in there and all 200 literally knew one another. Mom and I two very attractive women and the only time anyone threw a glance our way... More

Service was friendly and food was good if you're in the mood for pub food. Their pasta special that night was mediocre so stick to the regular menu.

This is a review of Malarkey's or maybe Townies since I think it's the same building. The 7 of us met for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon so the place was quiet. We had a very nice server, told us all about the beers and if we didn't like something...offered to get something different. ( we liked everything)... More

We were attending a conference in town and saw this place advertised at the hotel. We followed the GPS but downtown Wausau is very confusing with one way and dead end streets, so it took some time to find it. We didn't need dinner, just drinks. The pub has a sort of Irish feel to it but not really. They... More
