We were on our way to Marshfield and Googled Wausau restaurants. What a wonderful treat. We were to early for lunch (we were on Michigan time) so we both had an omelet. They were amazing. AND they had gluten free toast.

I have been coming here periodically since I was a small child. It is a traditional lunch counter style diner that never disappoints. Deep fried cheese curds, cheeseburger and fries, it doesn't get better than that. Can't wait until next time.

Clean plates times four should tell you most of what you need to know. Omelettes were well made and delicious as were the hash browns. Kids loved pancakes, eggs and bacon. Especially liked their hot chocolate with whipped cream.

Wonderful food. Cozy, diner atmosphere. Fair prices. I had two scrambled eggs, bacon, and pancakes. The pancakes were my favorite: soft and fluffy. Just right. The coffee was free-flowing. My friend and I were given time to just sit and talk. Didn't feel rushed at...More
