Mouth-watering Steaks!

We went on a Saturday night and had reservations, though we wouldn't have needed them for 6pm. The steaks were out of this world, as was the vegetable of the day. The atmosphere is nice, though not incredibly fancy. It's pricy, and clear that the quality of the food is their rationale for that... read more

I eat here just about every time I visit the Wausau area and it is always excellent. I visited last night again and had the Lobster Bisque and the Filet Mignon. Both were excellent again.

Wish offers a fine assortment of dinner choices and cuts of beef. Our party shared a delicious smoked salmon appetizer. I chose braised short ribs served with grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes. Companions had nice steaks and truffle-coated french fries. Our waitress knew her stuff, which helped us choose. Chicken and fish were also on the menu, along with a... More

We got reservations to Wish, based on high recommendations. When we walked in, we were impressed with the number of awards on the wall and were eager to sample the fare. We were seated immediately and our waitress was very friendly. We had to wait a long time for our drinks, even though there were not many people in the... More

WISH has been one of our go to restaurants and I have given it excellent reviews. It appears to be maturing into mediocrity. Went last night - they were crowded and made us wait 45 minutes after our reservation. Once seated we had to ask for silverware and napkins. Once we ordered they never brought our salads. The food quality... More

I went here on a Friday night with my family. We had dinner in the bar area in lieu of the dining room as we didn't have a reservation and there was a bit of a wait. The service was excellent and we could actually have a conversation - it was quiet! Very enjoyable. We all had the fish fry... More

Quite expensive for a place with what I feel has the most limited menu in town. The food is marginal at best. Service is excellent though. Not planning on a return visit.

I was in town for a conference and our group came here for dinner one night - it was fabulous! The steaks were delicious (I had a fillet mignon), the service was spot on and they had a very nice wine list to match. As we were in Wisconsin we also tried the local dish - the deep fried cheese...
