We love to celebrate all of the great food available to us in Wisconsin, much of which comes from local farms and purveyors. Wisconsin is one of the first states to have made the farm-to-table movement front and central to the dining scene – and that can even be seen in a small town like Wausau. The top Wausau restaurants do an exquisite job of bringing fresh, local, and inspired flavors to diners in town, so whatever brings you here, don’t miss your chance to enjoy a great meal in charming downtown Wausau.

You do have the option of cooking your own dinner while staying at our luxury cabins in Wisconsin – and though a night in cooking with your sweetheart can be exceedingly romantic, so, too, can a wonderful dinner at one of the many great Wausau restaurants. Wausau is one of the best places to visit in Wisconsin, particularly for lovers of fine art, great food, outdoor adventure, and unmatched accommodations at our brand-new luxury cabins in Wisconsin.

Whether you’re in town celebrating those most special of life’s occasions or would benefit from a change in pace and scenery from your every day, we’d love to welcome you in style to the newest luxury cabins in Wisconsin. Not only that, but we’d love to help guide you to some of the area’s top attractions, including the best Wausau restaurants. From sharing our recommendations for our favorite Wausau restaurants to helping you plan a fun day with your sweetheart, we can’t wait to share the very best of our town with you.
