City Grill was warm and inviting as we entered the door! We were greeted immediately and seated at a tall table as we requested. Service was swift and friendly. All three items ordered were delicious and delivered at the proper temps. I recommend the crab cakes...one of their signature dishes! The ambience was nice, quiet and nicely decorated. I would...

Very busy Friday night but had a very relaxed meal and our companions enjoyed the fish fry (broiled) and loved the massive greek salad.

City Grill offers some nice selections for me to eat. The serving sizes are reasonable and the prices appropriate. As a foodie, I make a point of enjoying unique, flavorful, creative cuisine wherever and whenever I travel. So I am admittedly hard to please. The fact that I am vegetarian adds to the challenge; few restaurants seem to know what... More

The food is excellent and the atmosphere is very comfortable. The wait staff are all very good, but if the bartenders wait on you, chances are you will wait a while for service. Overall, it's a very nice place to stop for a relaxing meal. We typically go on week-nights and find it a very nice experience.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with a group of friends and was definitely not disappointed! Hadn't been to City Grill in quite awhile and was very happy we chose this spot! Had the Crab Stuffed Shrimp and it was really tasty. The stuffing part wasn't to die for but everything else about the dish was really excellent! I also enjoy the... More

Our server, Logan, was fantastic! He was attentive, polite, and knowledgeable. My husband and I shared the tempura shrimp cocktail for an appetizer - it was tasty! For dinner, I had the shrimp alfredo and my husband had the king-cut prime rib. Both dishes were nicely plated, perfectly cooked, and seasoned well. We enjoyed a leisurely meal in a interestingly...

My boyfriend worked with the staff at City Grille to help make his proposal so special. They were amazing. And our place setting was beautiful! The food was amazing and the decor was perfect for the occasion. The price was also reasonable. We will be back!

Menu has options for every taste and budget. Great Service from Ryan and Logan, our waiters. Highly recommend the Creme Brule for dessert! Spinach Rissoto was amazing!

Very nice atmosphere. Menu has nice selection of fine dining entrees. Very nice wine list. Great place for a date night. Bring your cash, items are pricey... food was well worth it though!

The City Grill is where you can get a good steak but don't need to dress up to eat it. Housed in the beautiful downtown Wausau, it's a revolving door of locals seeking fine dining in a trendy atmosphere decorated in local art. The City Grill hosts live music once a week and is a great place to take a date, meet friends for appetizers or just watch the game with friends. And while the fillets and martinis taste top dollar, we promise they won't empty your pocketbook.

In addition, City Grill offers banquet facilities, located on the 2nd floor of building. Our professional planners will help you choose the hall to accommodate your guests and will help you plan a personalized reception or meeting. Whether hosting 2 guests or 400, the City Grill & Jefferson Street Inn is the perfect venue for corporate events, board retreats, holiday parties, rehearsal dinners, showers, gift openings and brunches. Our personalized service ensures that every detail is carried out according to your specific taste and style.
