We stopped in Wausau for dinner on our way to Green Bay and were lucky enough to find this wonderful restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. A must do in Wausau.

“Great Meal”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

My Wife and I had a table outside with our pet dog. The weather was great and so was the food. This is a restaurant I enjoyed and would go back again.

“From Entree To Dessert To Waitstaff... Excellent!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Any time we are near Wausau, we make it a point to dine at the Back When Cafe!
We can't think of one thing that isn't fabulous from the salads, sides, entree's to over the top amazing desserts. If you like carrot cake, then you have to try their "Towering Carrot Cake" which is HUGE and you will be taking some home. Same goes for their chocolate cake.

Friendly and competent waitstaff, and welcoming atmosphere. Wish we lived closer to this gem!

“If you are looking for a relaxing meal this is the place”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We don't dine here often but it's my number one choice in town. Sitting by the fire in the winter or on the patio in the summer. Wonderful atmosphere to sit back an enjoy your meal . Don't expect fast food pace. This isn't that kind of place.

“Over rated”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

We went to BWC for the first time. Although the food was very good and plated like a picture, we found the atmosphere and our waiter less conducive to what we expected.
The waiter was somewhat standoffish and we felt we were more of a bother to him than a customer. The tables are close together so quiet or no dinner talk are the only options. For the price paid for the meal, I do not find us going back to BWC.
