“great food , freindly service”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

Carmelos is a family run Italian restaurant that has great food and excellent service at resonable price.. Their chicken lasagna and manicotti are favorites of ours. If you get a table by the window you can look out at Granite Peak ski resort. It's a place to enjoy.

“Best after a round of golf with friends”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

Went with my girlfriend, and the staff was very friendly. Wait staff was a little preoccupied it seemed, and was not very helpful. The food was not in line with the price, meaning the quality was not good. We usually keep the left overs for a late snack or light lunch the next day, but we passed on it from here. The inside looks very nice, with romantic lighting and has nice arrangement, but the disappointment is that while this place could be an upscale treasure away from the downtown scene, it in the end is more like an overpriced add-on to the bar and golf scene.

Cost is like $$1/2, I got a chicken pasta for $12, so it wasn't that expensive. I think total was around $36 for 2 with tip and no appetizer.

“Have a drink, enjoy the view but skip the dining”
Reviewed July 14, 2011

The view at this golf-course bar and restaurant is one of the best around, right at the base of Rib Mountain. But the food was awful. The salad was wilted yellow iceberg with a spoiled mushroom. The entree was a little better (as my partner said, we didn't get sick anyway) but flavorless and overpriced. I don't know how the drinks are but if you do stop here, stay at the bar. They are as friendly as in most places in Wausau but should just forget food except maybe the fish fry!
