Best of SP

Dang good! This is my favorite place in Stevens Point. Father fats great too but Wooden Chair is my kinda place. Great menu items. Friendly vibe and wait staff. Super fast service and really great food. I've eaten there about 3 times and tried various things when visiting my daughter at UWSP.

My husband and I are local residents. We have not been to The Wooden Chair in several years. We wanted to splurge and go out for a high quality breakfast even though we knew we would be paying a lot of money for it. We were very disappointed with our meals. We both had the Country Eggs Benedict and coffee... More

The Wooden Chair is not a gourmet restaurant. It is, however, welcoming and cozy with attentive, personable staff and wholesome, fresh food. We came on a Saturday afternoon, right at lunch time, and had no problem getting a table. Our food was served within 10 minutes and not only delicious, but well presented. Beware, however, that it does not have... More

The Stevens Point/Plover area does not have many great places for breakfast. The Wooden Chair fills that need and fills it very, very well. Everything is made fresh and priced reasonably. The service has been top notch no matter how busy they are. If I was to try and talk negative about anything, it would be the fact that more... More

If you know anything about the Wooden Chair it's exactly what you think it is. Good food, generous portions, and relaxed atmosphere. It isn't fancy or particularly innovative, but we've been many times and will go back many more.

I really enjoy this place and have never been let down. The atmosphere is quaint and interesting. The food is excellent, everything taste fresh like it came from a garden in back. I highly recommend it!

Business lunch -- nice laid back atmosphere; homemade soups, breads, wraps, salads. I had the Black Bean Burger, appeared to be a premade Pattie, not exceptional. Chicken Veg soup excellent and filling. Good coffee. Would come here again.

I tend to go here around brunch. I do it on purpose because, even though I set out to try something new, I always order the same thing. The Crabby Guy (lunch menu). Open-face crab salad sandwich. I'm not big on seafood salads, but there is something about this sandwich. As the name implies, wooden chairs throughout the restaurant. Service... More

I've eaten at The Wooden Chair twice while I was in Stevens Point for meetings. The prices are great and the service is good, and the food is decent. It's not outstanding, but it's good comfort food and decent option for lunch. My coworkers are big fans and it's a healthy option in downtown Point.

Great spot in downtown Stevens Point for a group gathering. Great food and great service. Not fancy, more like home. Historical pictures of the area all over the walls with lots of antiques scattered around, including many of the chairs you sit on. Easy parking on the back side. Many locals visit on a regular basis.
