This was a date night for my husband and myself, and our second visit to Wish. The atmosphere is always welcoming and staff is friendly. We tend to order steak so can't comment on the rest of the menu. Bruce had prime rib and I had filet. We both had twice baked potatoes and opened with cheese curds. All our selections were excellent.

The steaks were fabulous and the French onion soup was delicios. The service was slow but it was busy since it was valentine's day. Our table was very small and I wished we had a booth

Filet Mignon was excellent as were the garlic mashed potatoes!

It’s definitely a nice place but the food and overall presentation is not worth what is being charged for simple filet. Any amount of butter and too much salt can make anything taste good. The waitress seemed like she was on crack and couldn’t wait to get us out of there.

Steaks were fantastic! A little expensive, but was not disappointed on the flavor.

Even though we had a reservation we waited 49 minutes for our table. After ordering we waited almost an hour for our food.

This had to be one of the worst dining experiences my husband and I have ever had. We asked for bread and never received it and had to ask twice. The waiter did not know how to open a bottle of wine. We waited over 20 minutes for our drinks. After we received our salad and soup we waited An hour and 40 minutes for our entrees. The waiter never came to apologize for the wait and never offered to refill our glasses with fresh ice water. Food was not hot and it was just ok. Very disappointed with the slow service, especially for the price we paid. Will not be going back.

Service was slow didn't seem like time was used wisely. Food over all was good. But the Baked Mac and cheese was loaded with grease. I love to have a frothy salted butter for my steak and their butter is fake oil based butter not very good. And was not offered any steak sauces, wasn't offered any sour cream foe the mashed potatoes etc. For how much we paid we won't be back for a long time...

Best Fish Fry on the Planet! Hands down, the haddock fish fry is outstanding!

This is my second review for this restaurant and unfortunately this experience was far different than the first review. The service was extremely slow both at the bar and once we were seated at our table. The flatbread and gnocchi specials were tasting though a little heavy on the garlic. The steak on the other hand was a huge disappointment. For this place being a steak house, both times I have come for steak, the steak has been overcooked. This time, not only was the steak overcook but the ribeye tasted more like a strip with very little flavor to it. I think they were short staffed, probably not anticipating the large crowds given it was the Friday after Thanksgiving. Given there are few nice restaurants in the area, we will probably be back but not because of the food or service this time.

We enjoyed a family birthday dinner at WISH. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The restraunt was lovely with a large bar area. The food was fantastic. It will be added to our list of favorite restraunts in the Wausau area.

Was very disappointed with the quality of or steak and prime rib!
Both the Rib Eye Steak and Prime Rib where on the "tough" side and where a big disappointment, far from what one would expect from an Steak House specializing in Steak and charging a premium price.
