Family luncheon

This place has been around for ever. They've updated since I was last there. The food was pretty good and it wasn't very expensive. There is mexican, Italian and American food. It definitely is kid friendly, so expect a few little ones making a little noise. This definitely is a place to try for a... read more

A fun place to go. Something different and a good place to meet with other people. Nice menu. Good food. Good service. I would go again.

Went here one time. It's not that good. Or at least I should say the pizza isn't good. I took our grandson here, because of the unique atmosphere. He thought it was neat. I felt like I was eating on the inside of a colon. The pizza was burnt, and had very little flavor. I can't recommend this place. Our... More

Were looking forward to taking the kids to this restaurant as it looked interesting. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. Burger was over cooked and the fries were not greasy but tasted greasy. Pizza had so much cheese it was hard to eat and the BLT deluxe had 3 slices of bacon. Atmosphere was great. I guess the empty... More

They have the best Pizza, cheese fries, and Pasta. I always get the meat ravioli as it taste just like the great recipes from the UP of MI. Get there early as this place fills up fast. Great mine decor in the new restaurant.

Had a party of 7 and wait was around 20 minutes - which was ok for a Friday evening - early evening. Most food had too much cheese on it and was pretty plain. Can't say we'll be back anytime soon. Better pizza options in town.

Since my first taste of italian fries in 1980, I have been hooked! Every time we go back to Wausau we must stop at The Mine Company and they never disappoint! Great atmosphere and good staff make this a perfect choice for a quick meal

I love their drinks and their taco salad! It's definitely a cool atmosphere and something unique in Wausau. I have always had great service!

I have been here multiple times before and after they rebuilt a few years ago. I have yet had a bad meal. Their staff is very friendly and accommodating. Even though the bar tender didn't know how to make the drink I asked for (Rob Roy) she was eager to learned and made it perfectly with little instruction. I will... More
