Great meal.

A great meal from locally sourced food. Started with the shrimp skewers (7) for an appetizer. Fabulous. The grass-fed beef meatballs with soft polenta was fabulous. The Wisconsin burger was also great. No French fries here, but you have a choice of tater tots, sweet potato or roasted... read more

The Wisconsin burger was also great. No French fries here, but you have a choice of tater tots, sweet potato or roasted fingerlings as a side. I want to try the pizza nest time.... More

Thankfully Amanda, our server, was awesome because we can't say the same for the food or beer...nothing special.

My wife and I were staying in the Wausau area on a bike and hike vacation...went to eat at Red Eye based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. First, this is a busy place...we went on a Thursday evening around 7:30 and were told it would be a 45 minute wait...so, think about making a reservation... More

Passing through the area, I decided to get off the freeway and go into town for something nicer than the standard highway fare for lunch. WHAT A GEM! This place had excellent/creative food at decent prices and the service was midwestern friendly. I only wish that I could've tried one or two of their microbrews, but being on a motorcycle,... More

Consistently the best food, service, and atmosphere in Wausau. I wish I could recommend a specific food item, but I can't, it's all good!

The menu, albeit limited, it very unique and I have never been disappointed. I most recently tried their mac and cheese and it was decadent. The dish was creamy and very rich, I couldn't finish the whole thing (although I wanted to) in one sitting. The beer choices are always great, I love how they put both the IBU's and... More

Visited with my girlfriend while in town visiting my parents. Drove by on a Mon eve and it appeared very busy for dinner! (Good sign) We decided to visit later in the eve. Great look, cool atmosphere. Tried two of the house brewed beers. Both were great. I left feeling it was a pretty cool (to date) place for Wausau.... More

Stopped for dinner Thursday night. Was a little surprised how busy the place was and it then occurred to me it was the eve of the 4th of July weekend. The 20 minute wait time allowed me to sample a few craft beers. Once we were seated the ladies ordered the special which was scallops, with a nice side salad.... More
