The food is of the edible variety. It is not great, or even good, but one cannot say that it is not food. Their buffalo wings, however, are not buffalo wings. They are baked, with a side of hot sauce. They tasted bland and mushy. You can get local craft beers to wash down this technically food if you desire.

We eat here regularly! All the pizza is very tasty, service is good. Only complaint is they are always busy, but wait times are not too bad. We enjoy their outdoor seating too.

You may have to wait for a table at this popular place, but the wait is well worth it! I have enjoyed every meal I have gotten here from the chicken fettuccine Alfredo to the pizza buffet! Great ambiance!

In my family, summer just isn't summer until we've eaten at the Wheelhouse and Scoops after. The service is great and the food even better. Everything is homemade. My favorite is their pizza but go when they have their all you can eat buffet. It's busy but worth the crowd. This time I had the spinach salad and it was... More

We usually sit inside and have great service and great food but this visit was disappointing. We sat outside and waited 20 minutes watching three waitresses clean tables and walk by us not even acknowledging we were there. I went up to the bar to order drinks and asked for menus. We sat there another 20 minutes without service so... More

I have never had a bad meal here. The ribs are the best I've had. Prime rib is also fantastic, as is the pizza. Most weekends also include some great music out on the deck. Also family friendly. Highly recommended.

I and 7 family members visited the Wheel House last week and had some of the best pizza we've experienced in many years. The taco pizza, in particular, was fantastic. The adult beverages were excellent, too.

We went to the WheelHouse twice on vacation. The Monday night pizza buffet was good and their lunch menu was good as well.

Been coming to the Wheelhouse for a couple years (mostly during the summer while visiting Waupaca's wonderful Chain of Lakes) and it has always been fantastic. The beer selection is vast, the pizza is delicious, and there is always a wide range of sports on the TVs. Wheelhouse also has a great deck and outdoor bar. If you're in town,... More
