Description: 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.

“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We went with our family (2 adults, 2 children age 8 and 10). Service was very friendly, our Poached Pear Salad was really good, my Balsamic Bruchetta was great as well. My daughter loved the pasta carbonara, but my husband didn't like his gorgonzola NY strip. The inside was hot but the outside cold, which was weird considering that it was served rare.

“Excellent downtown dining”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have to say since the new chef has started, the food here has been outstanding. Recently was in for a birthday celebration and was not disappointed, nor were my dining companions. Can't wait to go back.

Despite good reviews, my burger was tasteless, my daughters risotto was tasteless and the fish fry was over breaded and not as good as Custer's fried cod. It's not deserving of these positive reviews. It's a hotel restaurant at best.
