“Terrible Dining Experience”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

I want to make it clear that this review is not about the quality of the food served. The food was really good.

The service was terrible. Our military son who is stationed out in California and his girlfriend from California came home to Wisconsin for a visit. As soon as we knew they were coming home we anticipated taking both of them for a fish fry experience in Wisconsin. Friends of ours from Dubay introduced us to the place in the Spring and we thought the fish was really good. To introduce our friends to our son we decided to meet them at Hog Creek again.

It was busy when we arrived at 6:30. About 7:30 my husband went to check at the register to see how much longer it was going to be. The hostess was very rude to him. We were finally seated after 8. After we were seated the guests at the other tables started leaving and then we ended up being the last ones in the dining room. Then the noise began. The wait staff started cleaning the room beyond the expected wiping down tables. The sweeping and banging of the chairs against the tables started taking place. It left us with the impression that instead of prioritizing the guests dining experience, especially after it they waited so long to be seated, we are going to start cleaning the place so we can get out of here as soon as possible. You do not know how frustrating and stressful it was, trying to eat and socialize with your family and friends and you have people next to you sweeping and banging chairs. It was just plain rude.

I can't remember the last time we dined and did not leave a tip. We are usually 20% tippers. We did not leave a tip. If management requires that their staff starts deep cleaning while guests are still dining then management should give the wait staff a tip on our behalf

There are a lot of great places in the Wausau area to get a fish fry. Hog Creek will never be our choice again.
