A friend and I came here on a Friday night during July and sat outside on the patio. Nice area with a bar to sit at (if you want to have drinks before sitting down). The service was pretty good, though our server was a little slow sometimes but it was a packed night, especially outside. I had the mahi-mahi fish tacos which was AMAZING; probably some of the best fish tacos I've ever eaten. The prices aren't bad for a nice night out - highly recommend for a relaxed evening or date night!

My girlfriend took me to this venue and I was really impressed by it. Generally, when a place calls itself a "grill", it can range anywhere from decent and manicured to dingy and sketchy. Truly, this place has a very nice atmosphere. It's very easy to get to, parking is ample, and the outdoor seating is a nice sight on the way into the building.

The dining room itself is very elegant, heavy with chandeliers and appropriate lighting. They have some corner booths that look wonderful for a couple or special occasion, and some very gentle music playing. We weren't up in the bar area or outdoors, but those areas from a glance seemed pretty nice as well.

The hostess and waitress were very kind, especially to be patient with us as we took some extra time ordering and sticking around after our meal was finished. In particular, our waitress was cognizant enough to warn of an up-charge for a refill, which was appreciated. Professional and friendly!

As for the food, I had a french onion soup that was terrific, a great blend of salty broth, provolone cheese covering, and onions that melt. For an entree, I tried the butternut squash ravioli which was fantastic. I don't see that offered in too many places, but it was comparable to that of my favorite restaurant here in Wausau, the Back When Cafe, and actually at a lower price point. Very flavorful, sweet and creamy mixed with a dash of salt and pecans. Truly a terrific meal for the price. Pricing in general on the menu seemed pretty reasonable given the atmosphere and quality. I can't attest to their drink offerings without having partook but they did provide a small wine list which is appreciated.

I would definitely recommend this place for couples, and especially if it were a warmer night out the outdoor seating area looked delightful. Highly recommended in general!

I ate here with my 3 kids for breakfast on a Sat morning. The service was very friendly and we were seated quickly. We ordered drinks, but it took quite a while to order and get out food making us late for our event at10:00. The food was very good. I had the stuffed French toast and a side of bacon. The kids all had the pancakes and bacon from the kids menu. We liked that the pancake looked like Mickey mouse and had mini chocolate chips on the side.
