We were in town for a ski trip. It was the number one rated restaurant on Trip Advisor so we decided to give it a try. Great wait staff with a variety of delicious food! Would definitely go back again if we were in the area. Best to call ahead for a reservation.

Red Eye is one of my favorite places to eat and drink beer. It's a bit on the noisy side, so not good for taking my elderly father with his hearing aids, but otherwise, the atmosphere is fun, the beer is great, and the food is terrific. Don't pass up the Truffle Tots. They make a great appetizer!

Second time we were here. Both times were outstanding standing. Great food and beverages. I believe I could always find something on this menu.
No issues with the service or food. It appears they run a tight ship. We sat right by the kitchen and the "kitchen boss" was on top of everything. We are a CSA member of Red Door and also buy from Stoney Acres. It is great to see a farm to table place.
I don't usually give 5 stars but this place is worth it.

Red eye is my favorite restaurant in the Wausau area and I go there as often as I can. It is our "go to " place for when we had out of town guests. Our meal was fabulous as always. I specially love the special features that they had. The mahi-mahi was flavorful moist and delicious! The fromaggio pizza was outstanding as well. I love the thrust crust!!! Red eye has delicious food and excellent service. My only complaint is that I wish it was easier to get a reservation. One has to plan quite a ways in advance if they want to go on Friday or Saturday night.

I had made a reservation via Open Table for lunch, requesting a window seating. We were placed near the center of the room, adjoining the kitchen area. It was fun watching all the cooking and preparation activities. We even offered help add wood to the pizza oven when needed, but they said they were good to go.... The waitress was very friendly and attentive. My guests were very happy with their lunch choices. The chicken on my salad was a testament that the fire was indeed hot enough.... enough said. Desert was very good, so much in-fact that we all accepted the complimentary insulin shots.... Red Eye is a great place for a business lunch or social fun get together. Just don't let them hockey puck your chicken....

We love coming to Red Eye. It is a great date night as well as a great place to take friends. Our only complaint is the noise level. We understand that guests can't be controlled, but the music playing can and we would love it if the volume was reduced. My husband only hears from one ear and he had a very difficult time participating in the dinner conversation with his boss and his boss' wife due to sound.

The Red Eye Grill is our go-to place in Wausau, WI. It has a vibrant, fun atmosphere, fantastic brews (brewed in house for the most part), and consistently delicious food. Service is always friendly and on-task. The only drawback is the noise level, which makes conversation difficult, especially for those with hearing issues. But we keep coming because our experience overall is so delightful. Recommend it as a place to go before a show at the Grand Theater, which is nearby.

We love Red Eye and this meal was no exception. Red Eye has excellent food and service. The menu choices are varied and incredibly flavorful. As a vegetarian, they have lots of choices. A rare find in this area - locally sourced ingredients!

We went here for a birthday lunch which meant that my favorite dessert, Nutella calzone, was free! The four of us had two wraps, a salad, and a gluten free pizza. All of the food was delicious. We were especially impressed by the gluten free pizza crust. It was tasty and crispy. I also enjoy their homemade lemonade. Just the right amount of sweet and tart. We will be returning for more meals in the future.

We live in a restaurant Mecca so I don't expect too much when we travel but Red Eye met my city standards. Everything was very good, service was great. We added another person to our table in the middle of the meal and the server didn't turn a hair, just brought another menu, and added the additional person. If we lived closer, we would eat there often, an outstanding restaurant.

I have been to RedEye many times and it just keeps getting better. I am never disappointed. I do recommend reservations via Open Table when it is lunch time because it is also often crowded.
I love the local sourced food and the originality of the menu. I never go home disappointed.

We were in Wausau for the Art weekend and was told to make a reservation at this restaurant for dinner as it is always busy. We were early and sat at the bar and struck a conversation with a regular customer. I asked what he generally liked to eat he said the wood fired pizzas are very good but his favorites are generally the hamburgers.
We found the normal entrees which were in the $20-28 range a bit pricey especially for the chicken dish but the burgers and pizzas were nicely priced.
While not normally our dinner choices, we both chose hamburgers which wereboth outstanding. One was Wisconsin style with plenty of cheese and I chose more of a California style with grilled peppers and even a ham slice. I am getting hungry just writing about it!
Most of their own brews are priced at the bargain price of $4.50 and the bartendress let us sample before selection. Our regular customer guide recommended Burger Mondays with a beer and burger for $10. If we are ever in Wausau on a Monday, we will be at Red Eye. The only thing that gives me misgivings is the name. Ignore the name and have a great meal, with great service at a great price.

Sever was great even at 8 month preggers. Beer selection was fantastic. good, big beers. Barley wine could use some more aging, was a little 'hot'. Brisket was great, salad had a great dressing that cut the smoke of the brisket.

This was my first trip to Red-Eye and it won't be my last. First, I recommend making a reservation(I did). People had to wait for over an hour for a table because it can get busy. The service was friendly and pretty quick. We had had drinks and an appetizer (we had the amazing truffle tots that are supposed to be a side), then dined on the flatiron steak and meatballs. My husband and I shared as we like to try as much as we can on a menu. Both were fantastic, the steak was tender and juicy and the meatball and polenta had just the right spiciness. We loved the woodfired calzone for dessert, it is definitely family size so please share with a friend or three. Come hungry and enjoy some of the fantastic beers or specialty drinks, take your time and enjoy your meal and have a dessert too.

Our 11th Annual Sister's weekend started off with a meal at Red Eye, Friday evening. My sister's and I enjoyed the food and environment. Our server was very helpful in making recommendations, for food and adult beverages. We liked that your food is locally grown as much as possible
