I really enjoyed the ambiance of this restaurant, with the mining theme. We ordered the small pizza for me and the kids, and asked for "less cheese", which was a good idea, because it had plenty of cheese on it - more would have been overpowering. The pizza was pretty good. The timber potatoes (french fries) were seasoned well and... More

We were looking for a restaurant with a gluten free menu for my husband & this place was recommended. It is very unique because the building on the outside is a replica of a mining camp & on the inside it looks like caves & is decorated with old mining equipment. It's a fun place to eat. The gluten free... More

I was here on August 4th in a family group of 15. There were several small children (18 months-10 years) and the staff, especially Morgan, was very gracious and accommodating. They do notn take reservations, but we did call a few hours ahead of time to let them know we would be coming with a large group. They have a... More

The inside of the mine cave replicates and old mine, so it looks like a cave inside. Kind of neat. The last time we went, it took over 20 minutes to order our drinks--:( The food is average and fairly priced

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.
