The Great Dane is easy-on, easy-off the expressway on to Sherman Street & Route 51, next door to the Marriott Courtyard in Wausau. The portions are very ample with nice salad options. While this qualifies as a "brew pub" type establishment, it is a full service restaurant that has it all from starters to salads, great soups, very good sandwich... More

Skip everything else and go straight to the Scotch Ale Ice Cream! Add a Slippery Tripel Ale to it as well! WOW! (The food is also very, very good!)

I have been to the Dane a few times. I've always been pleasantly surprised by the food. This last visit I had the Honey Pepper Salmon Club. The flavors on the sandwich blew me away. Was very good. The cheese curd batter isn't my favorite in the area though. The prices are a touch on the steep side. But if... More

The Great Dane is a nice place to get a beer and eats. The nachos and mac and cheese are great choices. The beer can be inconsistent at times. The bartenders are very friendly and I love the fireplace room to sit and relax. The wedding reception we had here was done very nicely and the food was great.

First I will state that the staff and management went above and beyond to provide our party of 30-35 people with excellent service. Since more people showed up then confirmed the group caused the staff to go beyond what was intended, however they still smiled and did what they could to make our party a success. Thank you!

New server Makaela did a great job taking care of us. Attentive but not bothersome, she checked with us regularly and did not spill a drop of my very full cocktail on a tray full of drinks when she brought it out from the bar. My rib-eye sandwich was flavorful, but tough, for a rib-eye probably owing to the thin... More

We went here for dinner and I wasn't all that excited to go. I had looked at the menu on line and wasn't impressed, I my husband likes to taste different beers so we went. The building is a little over the top, but tasteful. I still wasn't impressed with the menu so I had half a Ruben and potato... More
