Red Eye Brewing Company Ratings and Reviews
Went for Valentine's day. Overall not a pleasant experience I would expect for the large premium they charge for the mediocre food. There are other restaurants in the area that charge similar prices that have much better food, ambiance, and service. Bottom line, this restaurant is nice but not at all worth the money.
I reserved a table ahead of time, and we got seated right away. I also called in the order to have it ready by noon, the time of arrival...the food was also ready, but we were on our lunch hour and it took a while for the waitress to return with the check, which made us late in getting back to work. All in all the food was good.
I love this place! We booked a relaxing bachelorette weekend in Wausau, WI. in part so we could have dinner at Red Eye Brewing Co. Everyone tried something different and we all loved our food! The food is fresh and flavorful and they seem to do everything well. Our server was fantastic and very attentive to our group. She did a great job! The beer and signature cocktails were delicious as well. Everyone left raving about their food and experience at Red Eye. I only wish we had one in Madison. This place is popular (for good reason) so do the considerate thing and make a reservation if you can.
Went here for a date night while visiting Wausau. The ambience was cool and the beers were great. Unfortunately, the food left much to be desired. The burger we ordered was undercooked and the pizza had too much cheese for my liking. The cheese pretty much drowned out a lot of the other flavors. Don't think I'll be visiting again, unless it's just for a drink and conversation.
We are regulars at Red Eye, the restaurant is comfortable and energetic....a great place to be. The food is truly the best there is in Wausau, the menu is great and changes seasonally and the specials are amazing. Cost wise the menu offers something for everyone. I also appreciate that as a non beer drinker there are always a variety of specials and variety for me.
My favorite restaurant in Wausau. Great wood-fired pizzas and solid beer selection; most of the beers are brewed in house (and are almost all terrific). In addition, a very tasty and interesting farm-to-table menu that constantly evolves (along with more standard fare, burgers, pastas, and sometimes BBQ). Always a fun and festive atmosphere.
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 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.
