My father use to take me here during the 1970's, and the food and drinks are still memorable. The burgers are excellent, and the homemade pies are great.

We were so happy to see they have gluten free options. The GF food was great and they even had a GF dessert option! We will be back. The Mint is a treasure in the downtown Wausau area.

This is one of the most friendly and best places downtown Wausau to eat. Noted for their Greek Salad which I totally recommend, just wonderful food and quantities for the price.
