Good food and service, a little noisy

Seated after a 15 minute wait on a Friday, tho it was 45 minutes when we left. Helpful waitress informed us that the walleye we were ordering would take an extra 15-20 minutes so we could make an informed decision. Fish specials that we had (cod & perch) arrived in less than 10 minutes, likely... read more

I decided to take my wife & sons to The Mineshaft for Father's Day brunch. Parking was convenient in the lot adjacent to the restaurant. We were concerned there would be a long delay because we didn't have reservations but we were quickly seated at a table, ordered our beverages & on our way to the generous offerings at the... More

They advertise themselves as Wisconsin's Lagest Restaurant and Bar..I don't know if that's true, but I do know that the buffet was wonderful, service was fast and friendly and we got an unexpected bonus when our friend mentioned to our server that it was my husband's birthday...they brought him a free smoothie with whipped cream and a candle !

The Mineshaft gives big portions, is moderately priced, has a LOUD game room and a large menu. The food in average and priced accordingly.

I like going to the Mineshaft, but it's just soo busy that we don't go that often. I like the variety of the menu but it's a big too big and like reading a newspaper (if anyone remembers how to do that!). The staff are always pleasant and attentive. There are usually a lot of big groups so it can... More

The pizza and beer that we had were adequate. The place is a bit noisy and geared for the younger customer.

The server was fine, but the hostess was beyond rude to my family who showed up to celebrate our son's birthday with a reservation I had made weeks prior to our visit. Because 2 people got sick and couldn't make it, bringing our party from 12 down to 10 they were refusing to seat us. The hostess kept telling us... More

The Mineshaft in downtown Hartford is a huge restaurant/bar. Every time I have gone, there have been plenty of people dining but room for plenty more. My cousin and I looked over the large menu and finally decided to try the $5.99 pollock special that is offered on Wednesdays. It came with marble rye, fries, and coleslaw. It was more... More

Mineshaft is a good place for very cheap food and the game room is a blast for kids of all ages. They have food & fun deals, kids love it. For those over 21, skip it! Go to Hank's, it's across the street (sw corner,)
