“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

This is one of the best restaurants in Wausau. Everything on the menu is worth trying, but always go with the special of the day! I had the pork with bosinberrry sauce, and my friend had the salmon. Both were prepared just the way we ordered them. Portions were perfect.
Wait staff was very helpful, and had sounded like they had tries most of the entries , so could give us helpful insights. Nice views from the dining room.

The food was excellent. We had a new server but she tried very hard and did not make any mistakes. Very nice atmosphere.

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2013

Went here on the advice of a Wausau friend. He warned us the service may not be the best, but the food is great. My friend was right and wrong. Service was ok - waitress walked around in a shirt that was dirty. She was ok, but for the prices one would expect more. My friend was wrong about the food. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Had haddock - - a little dry and quite bland. Finally, a strange atmosphere. The place is a country club, but it's a public restaurant. Is it a private club or not? I might go back, but have no driving desire to.

“Best fish fry and breakfast in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

Even though The Hills is open Wednesday through Sunday, our two favorite meals are the Sunday breakfast and the Friday night fish fry. I can't honestly rate the other nights as we usually eat out only once or at most, twice a week. Therefore, since these two days are my favorites, we tend to always pick The Hills on these days. The fish is excellent, panko breaded being our favorite as well as the perch. The haddock is also excellent. Unbelievably, the sides are unusual and all are excellent. I have a hard time choosing which one I want. The risotto, saffron rice, garlic mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables and asparagus are terrific. Even the coleslaw is as tasty as it gets. Service ranges from good to excellent. Very good selection of wine and spirits.
Beautiful scenery.
