“Nice Server”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Food was decent, interesting atmosphere - think chain, Applebee's meets Cabella's. Wood smoke smell may not appeal to all. Best thing was our server - she made the trip worthwhile. Very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable about menu & area.

“Really good Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

I had a really great spicy chicken sandwich and salad for lunch. The service was a little slow but the food quality definitely made up for it.

“This is Wisconsin: Where's the Butter?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Grizzly's is a very nicely decorated and welcoming restaurant near Oakwood Mall. The fireplaces are a particularly nice feature in the long Wisconsin winters.They tout their grilled chickens plainly visible as you enter, and they are quite delicious. The last three visits for lunch to this facility keep me guessing why in the world I have to fight for butter in a Wisconsin restaurant? Nice hot loaves of bread are provided, but with a margerine-cinnamon flavor spread sort of yellow stuff that tastes strongly of chemicals. What is with THAT? The waitress will bring "butter" upon request - but it is another whipped mix of something, perhaps about 20% real butter. Frankly, in Wisconsin, serving real butter is a no-brainer. We know the difference! Whip it into an airy fluff if you must, but get rid of the yellow mix of chemicals that make up that spread Grizzly's serves.

Wait staff are friendly and prompt. Food is mediocre - example: chili has a very STRANGE flavor. Most people assume chili can taste a bit different, but at least somewhat like the normal expectations, but no. They doctor it up with a really strong ....(cannot describe)...sweet?....spicy?...some flavor that is really off. You have to eat it with a fork, not a nice soup spoon. Wild rice soup is a mystery - no visible rice and very "packaged mix" flavor. If you want the best wild rice soup in Eau Claire, Famous Dave's has figured it out, go there. They provide nice crayons and art placemats for children and slings for the big infant car seats.

The shades of the lights over the tables have about one quarter inch of dust on them. Don't adjust them or touch - the falling dust will pollute the food. The entry way couches need recovering - or at least vacuuming. There's a couple years dirt in the cushions that make you hesitant to sit on them, other than the edge. However, the floors looked clean and the bathroom was cleaned nicely.

These simple fixes would make that restaurant a great place to return to. Right now, no more for us.

“Good food, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Service was friendly but quite slow. There were only three of us and we all ordered just soups and salad. The food itself was very good. I would go back, but not if I were in a hurry.

“Best Cheese Curds!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

On my first trip to Wisconsin I got my first taste of cheese curds here and I have not been able to find any cheese curds anywhere that can beat these! Naturally, when I came back to Wisconsin for work I had to stop by and get another order of them, even if it was an almost two hour drive, but totally worth it.

When you walk into Grizzly's the smell of the roasting chicken and open flame is amazing, and makes your mouth start to water. The atmosphere is just, for a lack of a better word, cozy and inviting.

Service was great the first time and so so the second time, I would say it was about average.

The BBQ brisket is really good and is generally what I have gotten the last two times I have been there. I'll definitely be making another stop before I leave Wisconsin for the cheese curds.
