Great brunch spot

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.

I love their omelets. They come with a cup of fresh fruit and a slice of homemade toast. Their sandwiches are also great. The Spindle is my favorite.

The food was soooo bland! I had to salt my omelet 2 times. And it was corned beef! I I'm the one usually complaining things are too salty. Over priced for what you get. Wait staff was ok, could have been nicer. I liked the atmosphere though.

I've been coming to the Wooden Chair over the years since it opened, and I have never had a disappointing meal. In my opinion, the breakfasts are the best, but I am also a fan of their sandwiches (the Spindle is my fave!). Just went this morning, and ate an absolutely delicious omelette, great toast, and nice, crispy hashbrowns. Perhaps... More

This is a local restaurant in Stevens Point, the food is good, they are on facebook and most of the time let you know what the specials of the day will be. Please try to visit early during the week as they have daily specials.
