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

The atmosphere and service here was wonderful. It was later at night that we arrived and we were the only ones in the restaurant side, but not once were we made to feel unwelcome for being so late coming in. It was my daughter's birthday and our server made her feel so special that she is still taking about it.... More

The building is by far the best and only good part about this establishment. Our waitress was horrible.

The famous "Italian Fries" are basic cheese bread, with average taste.Marinara sauce is also average. Prices are reasonable. Service was good. Probably not a place for adults without kids in tow. A bit crowded.

Interesting little place. Average food at an average price. The walls look like a cave and the tables are rough hewn lumber with a thick varnish. The exterior of the building is an eye catcher designed to look like a collapsing mine entrance. I am glad we visited it.

Atmosphere was most unique but the food was just ok. The kids were entertained with the decorations. Service was good. My husband had the Philly sandwich was was really good. I ordered the shredded beef quesadilla which was not very good. Thought that it was little expensive for what you got.

Great food, friendly bartenders and waitresses, a really fun atmosphere. Be sure to try a side order of Italian fries with cheese in addition to your meal. My wife and I have always had great service. ps: the pizza is truly to die for.

Terrible service.. Waited 40 minutes for 3 sandwiches and a medium rare steak and it wasn't busy at all. When I asked the waitress how much longer on our food, she was rude and snotty the rest of our time there!
