I've had Red Eye beer on two previous occasions but have never been to their brewpub. This is a great place. The bartender was very friendly and explained their beer line-up since this was my first visit. She let me sample for free their two hoppy beers - El Tormento and Thrust. I chose the Thrust, a very nice American IPA. I then ordered dinner, which was very good. I started with a spicy black bean soup, which went great with the IPA. I then ordered a glass of Scarlet 7 - Red Eye's take on a Belgian Dubbel. This worked nicely with my Cowboy (a turkey and bacon panini). The service was prompt and friendly, the place was very clean and well kept and the food and beer were great. My only minor complaint is their menu listed Veruca Stout as being available but it was not (they had a decent tasting nitro Rye Porter in its place). If your passing through Wausau I would highly recommend stopping off at Red Eye.

This is my "go to" in Wausau, WI. The atmosphere is fantastic. There is a constant flow of new brews avaliable from in-house. Also, there is avaliabilty of micro brews from out-of-house. I have had Lagunitas on tap here!!! If I stumble across something unfamiliar, be it food or brew, the staff is always avaliable to provide knowledgable info. They will not steer you in the wrong direction. Everything I have had here is fantastic!!! I can go with the wife, have a meal for two, fill a growler and/or howler, and have food to take home for about $70 (including a generous tip). If you are sking at Granite Peak or biking at Nine Mile Rec Area for the weekend, it would behoove you to indulge in Red Eye.... Oh yeah, if you like bikes you'll really dig this place.

I would like to note that I would give Red Eye a 5/5 however, being a local, the menu usually doesnt change. That's cool because I do have my favorites. So if you are out of area consider it a 5/5, perfecto.
