“Delicious food in a friendly relaxed setting”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

We visited old friends who took us out to dinner at the Great Dane- we all had a great time and a wonderful dinner. All of us enjoyed our meals and appetizers as well as the beers. Great cheese curds and good variety of food for everyone including the two year old in our party. Would go again and try something else great on the menu.

“3 out of 3 visits were not good”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We have gone to The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company in Wausau 3 times and each time it was not a great experience. First of all we went there for the beer and then the food They had a great selection on the board, but they were out of the first 4 we asked for. This happened all three visits. It went like this for the beer: "We will have your IPA listed on the board." . Waitress comes back after a very long time and says "We are out of that". So we choose another beer and after an equally long wait the same thing happens "We are out of that". After a few times of this we ask "What do you have?" and she doesn't know. After another really long wait we finally have a list we can actually choose from. This scenario repeats itself with the food. By the time we get our beer, we have all finished our water. And forget getting a second beer. It seems like once you are served they forget about you and they were not very busy. The beer was fine but the food was less than mediocre. The Great Dane in Madison is awesome, so this was been a great disappointment. The service was very very slow. We seriously wanted to leave the money on the table for the beer and leave.

This place was busy on a Tuesday night, and most of the people were locals. fast service, good food, and fair prices make this place a good choise if you are in the area.

“Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Great Dane can do a lot of things. It is a restaurant. It is a night club with live entertainment in the beer garden. It is a bre-pub with its own house beers brewed right there. It is a great place for meetings.

“Great food and fast!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Compliments: The special (a white fish) was fantastic and melted in my mouth. The dish came with vegetables and a light sauce on top of couscous. The portion size was satisfactory also and I finished the whole plate. - Fast service! I wouldn't have expected such fast service for a group of 16, but the Great Dane delivered. - Friendly wait staff

Complaints: Wait staff attire. Personally, this was not an issue for me, however, older adults in the party commented on the skirt length of the majority of female wait staff and added that it was unprofessional.

Bottom line: Don't let the short skirts fool you. Excellent food and friendly wait staff - a Wausau favorite!
