We hit upon this place (through yelp) while staying for a night in Wausau. Garlic bread and the veggie pizza we had was awesome. They cut the pizzas into small bite size pieces instead of just big slices. Staff were nice and courteous. Left over...More

Comfortable atmosphere. Watch them make the pizza! Two locations- Schofield is great for large gatherings- especially a child's birthday! Games and rides. Large room for craft gatherings or private parties. Wausau location is smaller and intimate with an antique pizza parlor vibe!
