I love going to the mine when I visit. Hot beef sandwich is where it's at....but all of their food is delish. It's also a pretty cool atmosphere with plenty to look at, and they have decent happy hour specials (which I think they have listed online). Also once in a while they have deal chicken coupons which work out... More

We were in town for a softball tournament and had been there last year as well so we literally waited an entire year to eat there again. They accommodated 28 of us on a pretty short notice and it did not disappoint!!! The Garganzola steak is so tender, it melts in your mouth.

My family and I have been going to Wausau Mine Company for decades. If you go during your birthday, make sure to pan for gold (a little nugget in a bowl that gives you some reward like a free hamburger next visit) or get a free drink from the flashy boot cup. A lot of people go to the bar... More

Went to dinner here with my family. Atmosphere is unique and fun. Service was great. I had the chicken quesidilla...excellent and huge serving. Also had the soup of the day...chicken fiesta, which I loved. The rest of the family enjoyed hot pretzels with a beer cheese dip...excellent, and italian fries, both plain and with cheese. Everything was excellent, and provided... More

Great building, great service, and great food! I would highly recommend the cheese fries there. And they are not badly priced.

Food was great for the right price. My husband loved his prime rib sandwich! I read a review that it was so dark you could not see what you were eating but I did not see a problem with that.

As the name suggests, it is like a mine. You can't miss the building on Stewart Ave when you approach the place. I like the pizza because of the their cheese. No oils floating on top. Rest of the menu is ok. Nothing spectacular, nothing to write home about. However, most kids will like it. It is worth a try.... More

I have always enjoyed going to this restaurant. Yes, it is a bit small and the service can be a bit iffy at times, but my food has always been great! The setting of the old mine is interesting and it makes the place interesting. I know the kids always love the setting and the idea of "being in a... More
