Great Dane is a well established local company in the Madison area, and we're thrilled to see them in Wausau as well. Their microbrews, made in-house, are excellent, and food is great as well (better than your typical bar/pub fare). Atmosphere and location are excellent. Great for a date night or dinner with the family. Highly recommended, we'll continue to... More

We had a truly nice dining experience in the bar area. There was plenty of room to accomodate us (party of 8) and the service was fine. I highly recommend the pan seared ahi!

We had our wedding here and have been back so many times! Their soft pretzels are so delicious and they have amazing macaroni and cheese. Always have great service and the array of beers to choose from is great!

It was later at night (post 9:00) and my friend and I were in the mood for a steak. Most of the usual suspects were closed by then but we thought we would try Great Dane. There was almost no one in the place and some people were cleaning but the food we got (a blue cheese steak and Poutine... More

Great Dane has a very eclectic menu. The food is ok. The service is hit or miss depending on what time of day or what day of the week you are there. It is not a place we frequent.

I have ordered many things from the menu, but keep coming back to the sausage plate. It is very good and filling.

I've been to the Great Dane here for several years but I came to write a review after a recent experience there. The Dane's fatal flaw is their inconsistency. The food is never the same, and sometimes you get it cold/soggy. Sometimes it's very good. It's sort of expensive which I'd be fine with if I was guaranteed it would... More

The good food items were eliminated. The beers are not good for a brewing co. Many times they are out of several selections of popular brews.
