The restaurant was interesting, it is definitely geared for family's with children. It was fun for something different to do. The menu was also geared for kids, a little over priced but my guess is because of the atmosphere. Our food was good but nothing we couldn't have gotten anywhere. If your... read more

Great atmosphere, great fish fry. Good service. I loved the salads. This place has been around for a long time, and has been a solid go-to place for many years, very consistent.

We go to Wausau annually with friends to ski. For four years now we have eaten one of our nights together at the Mine Company. We have come to enjoy the atmosphere and mine history so ambiance is great. The staff is average to good, depending on who you get but they do work hard. The food is "eh" and... More

The place looked like an old mine. Great decoration as it feels like you were in a mine. The food was not good. They have something called italian fries that are basically a pizza dough with white cheese... very flavorless. The burgers and stakes were average.

The Happy Hour specials at Wausau Mine are a great deal! We also enjoyed Friday night Fish Fry which was very tasty and a great food portion for the price! Thanks for consistently doing a wonderful job for your customers! We had a new server named Mitchell and he did a really nice job! Handled my parents many questions very... More

front desk lied about original wait time, we were told 25 min but turned out to be 45 min. Food was flavorless and smothered in cheese.

The restaurant was able to seat our large group on a Saturday night. The beer choices on draft are very good. The menu has a lot of variety including pizza burgers, Caesar salads, chicken tenders, and soups. The walls are decorated as if you are in a mine which is something different from the usual.

We had pizza, cheesy Italian fries, and nachos. All were good, and service was fast. Fun for kids as the design of the building is like a mine. another spot where I have not had bad food.

Sort of cheese breadsticks with marinara sauce. VERY FILLING. Get the small! I got a ham and cheese sandwich which was toasted and fries. A lot of food! Very... More

Was in Wausau with another friend visiting a patient a Aspirus hospital. We passed on their cafeteria and went to the mine company instead. I got a Twisted turkey sandwich and my buddy got a gyro. Both were excellent. Service was friendly and prompt. Don't think this place will disappoint.
