Food is great and the best soup in Wausau! Creative daily specials and always something new to try. Service is a slow and given the speed of service the seating could be more comfortable. Totally worth it...when you've got the time.

This is a great lunch or breakfast as long as you are expecting a very long wait. It would be frustrating if you weren't expecting that. The food is good, but the service really is amazingly slow for what should be pretty quick and simple.

45 minute wait for breakfast order. Potato pancakes were over-cooked and eggy. Sausage patties appeared to have been of the frozen/microwavable variety and were terribly greasy. This was the third try for this restaurant and the last.

We are sorry that it took 45 minutes to serve breakfast. You were in our restaurant on Saturday which is an extremely busy day for our very small restaurant. When taking orders we always explain the wait time if we are busy. We only seat 45 people at a time and some times there will be a wait. As for... More

I score on a 10 pt system. We ate at noon. The entries were very good, Hamburger, Cordon Blue Chicken and Toasted cheese with a very good chili. However the frenchfries were cold and the homemade chips lacked crispness and some were more like frenchfries that cold. Certainly a neat decor from an old filling station.
