Red Eye Brewing Company Ratings and Reviews

This is a popular place but we were disappointed. The menu is varied and interesting, but the food was disappointing. My flatbread was greasy. They were out of cheese curds. The tater tots were not very special. My dining companions said there food was also nothing special. Everything was certainly adequate but not remarkable. Service was slow and we waited a long time just for our wine. It was a Thursday evening, but they seemed understaffed.

The salad special was not especially flavorful despite the unique ingredients and overpriced for what it was. The Margherita Woodfired Pizza was as good as ever!! Great service. Patio seating was really nice, but lack of umbrella makes it feel impersonal.
Helpful, friendly with delicious food
We had such a good experience with this restaurant. I have many dietary restrictions and they helped me choose something that would work and made me feel like it was absolutely no problem. The chef was able to modify one of their specials to fit my need and it was delicious. We enjoyed a delicious appetizer and each of the drink orders, both beer and other mixed drinks, were very good. My son and husband really liked the red eye ginger cocktail; said it was very refreshing and if you like Moscow Mules, that went over well too! Oh and don't forget dessert! They ended well by sharing the Nutella calzone!

Red Eye is our go-to for good healthy delicious food with gluten free options and a great beer menu. Our whole family (3 generations) loves it. They have great and consistent service and accommodate whatever size group we may have.
Great food and atmosphere. This is the second time I have visited this spot....each time it has been really good. The fire roasted pizza on the forst visit was so good, that I returned. My second visit, has the pulled pork shoulder......perfect. The waitress was very helpful in helping me with my decision.

This is our "go-to" spot as a neighborhood favorite. Red-Eye Brewing is a great place to take our big city company and has all the organic foods and drinks our children like for our grandchildren . The wait staff is always consistently well trained and a number of them have been there for years. We always feel special when we walk in the door and are greeted like old friends. The service is prompt if you want and you can also dawdle over your drink if you want. The food is interesting and well prepared and there is a new chef's menu every week using what is available at local farms at the time. In the summer there is no place better for a little dinner than the outdoor patio with umbrellas on the tables and hops growing up the fence.
AMAZING FOOD AGAIN
I loved this place so much from the last time, that we HAD to come here again. The server must have been pretty new because he was slightly lost. I can over look that though because the food is SO SO SO freaking good. I can't wait to go back and try something different again.
Best Spot in Wausau
I could probably rave all day about Red Eye. It's my absolute favorite place to go in Wausau. While I don't live in the area anymore, every time I come home to visit family or friends I absolutely must go. The beer is always delicious and I like that they also rotate other local breweries in the mix and always have a variety of styles. It seems a lot of places these days are just a little too IPA happy with all their beer selections. I also love that in addition to their regular menu they have chef specials that are changing. Service is always great here as well. Definitely a must in the area!
Great place. Wowed friends from Portland.
We were visiting red eye, which is already a favorite, with my inlaws from portland. They ordered a pizza and the chicken mac, and thought both were delicious. Our waitress was also extremely friendly, natural, and made our experience there even better. I loved the locavore pizza and my husband had the burger (juicy and flavorful). I love how everything is unique, with local ingredients and fresh veggies. So good.
Great Gluten Friendly Menu
I was very happy to find a wide variety of gluten free options that were healthier to eat. For the first time in years, I could order a burger in a restaurant. Gluten free bun, grass fed beef, absolutely wonderful. We had great service, great food and will be going back soon.
First but Not Last
We showed up an hour and a half before our reservations just to sample the excellent selection of in house brews. We got seated early and enjoyed our food immensely. The thing we really enjoyed about the whole night is how friendly the staff was, from the check in girl to the bartender to Makayla our waitress, who was awesome. This was our First time there and definitely not our Last time going there. Really a great place!!
Great food in hip atmosphere
I love Red Eye Brewing. It is my favorite restaurant in the Wausau area. The food is interesting, flavorful, and they offer specials which are unique and varied. Whenever people come to visit this is where we like to bring them to eat.
My only complaint was The noise. We were having a family dinner with out of town guests and had a very difficult time hearing each other on Friday night when the restaurant was very busy. Also, I wish they would offer more comfortable seating. I have a hard time with the seating which is hard wooden chairs and I have heard similar complaints from others.
Overall Red eye is still my favorite restaurant as the food, beer and beverages are outstanding!
Don't miss out on Red Eye when you're in Wausau
This was our third trip up from Chicago and we've gone to Red Eye each time. The food is yummy (I'm in love with the Bianca Pizza and the Truffle Tots) and the atmosphere has a great energy but is still relaxing. Service has been great for us each time (last weekend we had Amelia and she was wonderful for our group of 8 adults and kids).
out of town visit
we were in Wausau to go skiing and found Red Eye Brewery on Open Table. Make your reservations early because this place fills up! The food was great and they had a special occasion menu for Valentines Day. We tried 3 different beers and enjoyed them all. We will return next time we visit Granite Peak!
Overall, good experience
My husband and I were visiting Wausau for the weekend and decided to check this place out. We stopped by Friday but were told it was an hour 1/2 wait, so we decided to wait until Saturday and made a reservation online, to be safe. When we arrived for our reservation, we were seated promptly and the food came out quickly, despite the fact that it was busy in the restaurant. The food was very good; my husband had the meatballs and I had the Wisconsin burger. He also had a beer and cranberry gin drink. Overall, our experience was positive. One thing I would note, though, is that we felt very rushed during our dining experience. I understand that waiters want to get as many tables as they can in a shift, but I felt like that was our server's main focus, rather than us enjoying our time at the restaurant. For instance, I had eaten half of my burger and was obviously not finished with my meal, yet, and she quickly asked if I wanted a box. She also asked us on several occasions if we wanted the bill when we were still eating our meals. She was very nice, but this was just something that prevented us from giving an outstanding rating. This place is nice and has a cool ambiance, but they may benefit from upgrading to a bigger space, which would give them more bar space for people to hang out while waiting for their tables and would most likely lower their wait time, which was even an hour 1/2 when we got there on Saturday.
Faorite Microbrewery in Central Wisconsin!
The Red Eye offers some of the best prepared artisan food in Central Wisconsin and will top it off will some of the best craft beer in the Mid-West. My favorites are the grilled angus beef flatiron (medium rare) and the Napolitana woodfired pizza topped with a cracked egg.

We frequent this restaurant often over the years. As always, the service was pretty good. This time the food was a disappointment. (That's why the only 3 stars this time) The server came to us- did not state Her name, but instead stated she would be back with water- not asking if we wanted anything else to drink. The server took over 5 minutes to bring water. The chefs specials were not up to the usual standards. The nachos I special ordered ahead did not have much on them for veggies/ just mostly a soupy mess of cheese. The salmon was burned to the point it only tasted charred. I did return it, and it took over 1/2 hour to get new- by that time the other guest was finished with her food( which was also sub par for a 25$ steak!)
It was such a disappointment after years of going here, I might rethink it for a food choice next time and only go back for drinks.

The customer service was top notch tonight.
Our waitress, Meredith was attentive and on top of each thing we requested. We had a reservation for 12---- and she made sure that each of us felt like we were the only person at the table!
Food was superb, atmosphere was great as usual and the drinks were yummy!
The owners and staff really give customers a one of a kind customer service experience!
Our special occasion, with 12, was well taken care of at this establishment from the time we walked in to the minute we left!
