“Very unique dining experience, variable food quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2009

This is a restaurant that is a must see at least once if you're in the area. The decor is really crazy: looks like the actual rock interior of a mine shaft. The food ranges from very good to poor depending on the day. From our experience, the service is typically poor and the place is packed but again, it is worth experiencing this restaurant once. The italian fries are to die for and their pizza is very good. The rest of the food is average to less than average.

“A MUST stop everytime I'm in the area!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2009

Each time I know that my family or even just myself is going through the Wausau area to another destination, I plan a detour to the Mining Co. It's fabulous! Great pizza, pasta and the italian fries are out of the world! I've always received friendly service and my daughter as entered and won the coloring contest they do for kids meals. You know those things are sometimes a gimmick...NOT there! You MUST stop if your in the area. You won't be disappointed!

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2008

We were disappointed in this resturant after reading reviews. We were there on September 6, 2008.

We called ahead for reservations for six of us, which was great. Only had to wait a few minutes when we arrived. By the time we ordered the place was clearing out.

The service was very slow. Once we got to order it took over 45 minutes for them to deliver a pizza and gyros, the place was not busy by what we could see. They messed up our drink order, we asked for the house pizza without sausage, the pizza came out without pepperoni, but with sausage. Didn't have the time to reorder, with the kids with us. They did nothing to correct the situation, even adjust the check. It was my wife's birthday and she was able to pull a prize out of the basket which as a dinner for two ($30.00 value) good for the next 6 month which would be great if we lived in Wausau, but we won't be back until next year. When I asked for a credit for the messed up order, the servers response was that we are giving you a $30.00 gift certificate, well we would have gotten that anyways. We paid our bill and left, probably not to return. Oh by the way, the Italian Fries we had were nasty, we love cheesy bread, but I don't know what was on these.
