First, I'll start by saying every beer I tasted was above average. They even have a sour on tap! The Imperial Stout was aged in a bourbon barrel for just the right amount of time to give it the character without overwhelming you.
Next, the food. Again, really good and brought out quickly.
The atmosphere is interesting, kind of industrial, but not cold and uninviting. And with bikes hanging everywhere, cool.
The service was awesome! I sat at the bar and had dinner. The bartender was knowledgeable and very personable.
Overall, I will go back next time I'm in the area.

Stopped in here on my way up north and had dinner with one of my favorite beer geeks. It has a very modern restaurant decor. If you didn't know already you would be hard pressed to guess this was a brew pub.
They had five beers listed however their IPA "Thrust" was out for the weekend. Which was a bummer since I was told this was a must try beer. I settled for the wit "Bloom" instead. Quite tasty so no real let down. We all ordered pizza and apps. All of which were very good. I really enjoyed the hummus platter.
Service was friendly and prompt. No problems.
Overall a nice place to grab a beer and some solid pizza. I will make it a point to hit this place for now on when I'm going up north.

We spent the better part of an afternoon sampling some of the many brews Red Eye has to offer. The reason we were there in the afternoon, was because we weren't able to get in the night before.
The beer selection is very good. There is a style for everyone. I enjoyed the Scarlet 7 the most. Get a sampler and try them all before ordering a large.
I was too full of beer to try any of the food, but what was coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled great.

I was on one of my semi-regular business/pleasure trips through MN & Northern WI when I found myself passing through Wausau. Since I was in need of sustenance and a libation. Red Eye filled the bill nicely.
There is a parking lot and lots of street parking. They have a nice outside terrace near the parking lot & entrance.
Inside there are huge windows, which overlook Washington Street. These flood the pub with warm natural light. There are high ceilings that are painted black with some exposed metal supports.
The bar is to your left as you enter. Its about 35' long and seats a good dozen or so. I didn't really care for the faux concrete bar top, but that's just me.
They have lots of tables for dinning and have 3 high-tops right near the bar for overflow.
They were playing classic 60s and 70s rock on the XM receiver.
The kitchen is exposed and it is kind of fun to watch and listen to the cooks work. The food is good. They offer wraps, pizza, paninis, sandwiches, etc. I had a fantastic Beer, Brie and mushroom soup. Note that they try to be a healthier eating-place and do not even have a deep fryer.
Friendly staff, I was well taken care off. 6 beers on tap. The large blackboard lists the current and upcoming offerings.
Beers served in 14oz pint style glasses $4.03 per glass. I liked what I had.
If you ever find yourself in Wausau, I can really recommend that you stop by for some good beers and tasty food.
