Service was friendly and food was good if you're in the mood for pub food. Their pasta special that night was mediocre so stick to the regular menu.

This is a review of Malarkey's or maybe Townies since I think it's the same building. The 7 of us met for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon so the place was quiet. We had a very nice server, told us all about the beers and if we didn't like something...offered to get something different. ( we liked everything)... More

We were attending a conference in town and saw this place advertised at the hotel. We followed the GPS but downtown Wausau is very confusing with one way and dead end streets, so it took some time to find it. We didn't need dinner, just drinks. The pub has a sort of Irish feel to it but not really. They... More

A work-group of six stopped by for drinks after a long day of meetings and stayed for dinner. It was a great decision. No one in the group was disappointed. Our entrees varied from burgers to seafood. I went with a Mushroom and Swiss burger and wasn't disappointed in my choice. With the grill being attached to a bar there... More

The food is really good and there is always something unique on the menu but what I love the most during nice weather are the open windows to sidewalk traffic.

We call ahead to reserve a table to see the band. And were told they don't do that. But when we got there, they have tables reserved to see the band! We ate the bar and the food was great. To bad we could not reserved a table.

Great food, service and view of the 400 Block in Wausau. We had the avocado salad (pictured) and a spotted cow; both fantastic. I've also had the bloody Mary's there before, best in WI! Definitely stop by for a great lunch or dinner and friendly WI service.

I won't say that we were disappointed, but we weren't thrilled either. The waiter was prompt and attentive. The food was prompt. My wife had a BLT and I had the mushroom and Swiss burger. I suppose it is trendy to have slightly different flavors for sauces. The sauce on the burger worked, but the sauce on the BLT was... More
