Great food again but it took three hours on Saturday fropm start to finish. The food came out hot and was always very good but the time at the table was very long.

I enjoyed the Back When and am looking forward to returning. They have locally sourced, seasonal food in addition to a small selection of seafood. I had the Ahi Tuna which was good, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it given the depth of the menu. High quality and good presentation. Great selection of local beer including O'so. The service was great (although our waiter was a bit over the top with his theatrics). Great date spot!

We were in Wausau visiting from TN. The Back When Cafe served us a great meal on October 13th to celbrate my friend's 60th birthday. Richard was our server and the six of us never wanted for anything. Many thanks to Richard, Glen and Joleen.

Had a great evening taking in the Wausau ghost tour. Decided at it's conclusion we would have dessert at Back When. This place is well known for good food and the desserts always impress. The carrot cake is incredible. Great service and atmosphere too!
