This place is listed wrong on Trip Advisor! It's in WI, not FL! Anyway, happy I found it somehow. Service was impeccable! The manager greeted me at the door, immediately brought me to a table, asked if I wanted coffee and there was a person standing behind him who immediately poured my coffee, followed by another staff who poured my...

This family diner on Wausau's north end surpasses steak house quality with their flat iron steak. Perfect medium rare beef that was like eating butter, so juicy and tender. The dinner salad, my goodness! You GET a dinner salad! Compliments from my dinner companions also. Dana, the waitress, her genuine friendliness and out of the way service is second to... More

We did a take out of their Friday Fish Fry. It was delicious and plenty of food. We called ahead and it was ready when we arrived.

Visited with a friend. The menu is large, and comprehensive. So many choices. The prices are fair for what you get. It was busy - even on a Thursday morning. The omelet had a bit too much cheese for my liking, and was a little greasy; but the pancakes were good. We were allowed to sit and chat - and... More

I was in Wausau for a two day meeting. Day one - hotel continental breakfast. Day two - veggie omelet and fruit at Blue Willow. What a great way to start the day. The coffee is really good too. This will be our new breakfast spot whenever in Wausau. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Very average food, omelette with velveeta style cheese in it, and the fruit bowl I paid a dollar extra for looked a little rough around the edges. Furthermore, I accidently left a pair of gloves at the booth where we ate. I called back five minutes after we left when I realized it and they claimed they were nowhere to... More

We wanted breakfast. Online reviews listed only two places over 3 stars so we took a chance and came here. We were thrilled and elated we did! Clean, lots of parking and PACKED! In my years of travel, a busy place is a good place. And it was GOOD! First we were seated quickly even with the place busy. Automatic... More

Was amazing. Very friendly and family oriented. Pancakes and hash browns were cooked to perfection. Price very reasonable. We will be back.
