Only open on sundays for breakfast. Small menu but all choices looked excellent. I had the spicy skillet which was excellent. 2 others enjoyed the pulled pork eggs Benedict. The quiche and veggie omelette were also excellent. Free mimosa for each person. Highly recommend!

The whole menu is fantastic, and so is the atmosphere. I wouldn't go on a Friday because of crowds. The pulled pork nachos are a must try!

Web went for the Chicago style hot dogs. It wasn't Chicago but it did in a pinch in North Central Wisconsin. All in all a bit above average and no hesitation about going back.

We enjoyed a great fish fry a few weeks ago with friends at Hiawatha in Wausau. You won't be disappointed. Also we can't wait for warmer weather when the outdoor bar area opens and live music comes back. Watch for that to start. It's fun...More

A great place to relax with friends indoors, or at the outdoor tiki bar! Friendly staff and good food are washed down with a wide variety of delicious cocktails!
