The Mineshaft knows how to attract crowds who don't mind waiting to take advantage of amazing prices for daily specials. Monday night pizza and a pitcher for around $12. Friday all you can eat Fish Fry for $5.99.....and it's one of the better fish fry's around. The Mineshaft is a down to earth, gigantic two story restaurant on steroids.....which allows... More

All you can eat fish fry at the Mindshaft restaurant at Hartford, WI. Includes fries and cole slaw. Very good, tasty. Worth the drive. They also had Cod for a higher price.

On our way to set up for a family picnic at Pike Lake State Park Saturday morning, we planned to stop for breakfast beforehand at the Mindshaft Restaurant in downtown Harford. We've always enjoyed our meals there. Arrived about 9:45 am, within their window for their special, buy one get one free breakfast (with 1 beverage each). No one was... More

This was my first time back for Sunday breakfast in almost two years. I was disappointed that they only serve brunch now instead of having a breakfast buffet in the earlier am hours. Not as many items seem made from scratch anymore. It's okay just not great anymore.

Came on sunday evening after 7p, said there was 1 hour wait. We waited 1.5 hrs and then our service was super slow! Food was luke warm, server was rude too. As big an operation that this place is, you think they could do better! Needs improvement on service! Eat at ponderosa instead.

I try to stop at The Mineshaft for special occasions with family & friends. The atmosphere & activity are always a good experience. Portion size is good but plan on taking some home as well. I'm not into the upstairs games scene at all so I don't have an opinion there. I do know they recently renovated the area &... More

We went here on a Sunday at around 11, and were disappointed that only the buffet was offered. The buffet had a great selection of both breakfast and lunch foods...scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, beef tips, mashed potatoes, pork, and a wide selection of desserts. The food was good... not great, but not awful. Could have used more flavor. It is... More

Tried the all-you-can-eat shrimp on a Friday Night with friends. Good meal. A little loud in the dining room. Others had the perch. Also very good. Long wait time though. But it was a Friday night. Drinks were $$$ for the quality.

They have daily specials that are very reasonably priced. The 2nd floor of the restaurant has a massive game room, that adults and kids both can enjoy. We were there on a Wednesday night, their specials included, buy 1 pizza get 1 free, also buy 1 dessert get 1 free. They also had specials on steaks. Our food came out... More
