Nothing spectacular

Have visited this restaurant/bar numerous times. Each time, I've come away unimpressed. While the menu is extensive (great for families with picky eaters), nothing is overally great. The pizza is tolerable, but most everything else tastes like it's been frozen and just reheated over and over... read more

Four of us stopped on a Monday when we were in the area. The special for an 18 inch pizza and a pitcher of pop or beer was fantastic - and the pizza was great.

Visited this place many times,this last time for breakfast. Ordered French toast and omelet. Almost 25 minute wait with only maybe 7 tables occupied at the time . Two groups arrived after us and got their food before us. When we complained we were told it takes more time to make French toast. Finally after another 5 minutes our food... More

A group of my friends and I planned to go here for a little while now. We had heard wonderful things about their food and so we figured having to drive 45+ minutes to get there would be worth it. We knew we'd have to wait a while as we were a party of 12. Waiting a little under an... More

I have heard so much about The Mineshaft and a group of friends and I decided to come there tonight. We were a table of 12. We had an hour wait, which we were expecting. We got drinks and were having fun. All of our food was cold and the waitstaff was very rude. They spilt shrimp sauce on one... More

I'm always looking for places with great bloody Mary's which lately for some reason are very hard to find this one was really good with all the fix-ins at a reasonable price. The place was quite crowded and loud but there were a lot of big parties that came for their breakfast brunch, after most of them cleared out it... More

The Mineshaft is a mainstay in Washington County. Its daily specials and overall affordable meals make ita destination for hungry families on a budget. But don't expect first-rate food. The meals are of average quality with a heavy lean toward fried foods. Service is generally good, once you've been seated, which can take an extraordinarily long time during peak hours.... More

This is a very affordable place that is busy, and a great place to take your kids. It's like the midway at an amusement park with better food. The menu offers pizza, burgers, Mexican, salads, sandwiches and so much more I didn't even get through the menu. We dined on a Wednesday night. I had a patty melt and the... More

Dark, noisy, TV laden, average food. You do get vast quantities so if that's your thing over having "quality" then go for it. Service was "cranky" but we were there after the rush and they were obviously tired and ready to be done with it all...still, I would have appreciated someone re-filling the drinks and checking in to see if...

This is a very large restaurant/bar with a very large menu. The menu actually too big which is why nothing is "really good", it's just okay. A restaurant can't be really good at food when they have a 20-page menu. Prices are $5-$15, so it's affordable. Just don't expect to be blown away! Because the space is so large, there... More
