My family and I had dinner here on a Saturday night with my parents. My kids (6 and 3) absolutely loved the games upstairs... and their kids meals. My kids love going to Chuck-E-Cheese and this was a definite upgrade over that place thanks primarily to the food and atmosphere. The prices were great (less than $80 with tip for... More

Stopped for lunch on the way home. Food was good and reasonably priced. They have a huge variety of food and tons of specials. The have all you can eat pollak on Wednesday and Friday for $4.99. That is so cheap that I'm almost afraid to try it.

Not a bad fish fry and they also have all you can eat shrimp. The fish is hit and miss, been there a few times and it was awesome other times it wasn't as good. Place gets real busy like most good fish frys in WI on a Friday night so get there early. Games up stairs for the kids.

This is the first time I went to the Mineshaft, but family members have been there and said it was good. If you have kids, they have a game room on the upper level that rivals Chuck E Cheese. We had 18 people in our group and our servers were very friendly and patient. The food was average at best.... More

The family friendly atmosphere and pizza and pitcher deal made for a fun dining experience. We didn't play any games but we checked out the upstairs. Very cool!

Love the atmosphere and the people are great.Sunday brunch is awesome.Friday fish fry is not worth the sometimes hour long wait in my opinion. Game room is fun,bring extra cash:)

The kids love it, and they have good beer on tap. My only complaint is that both the dining experience and game room could be a bit more economical

I have come to this restaurant a few times before. I have always noticed flies in the restaurant. When I visited in April the temperatures were in the 20s outside but still flies on the inside? Must be year-round residents! When I went to use the bathroom I noticed 2 Cooks from the kitchen, one texting on the phone and... More

Food is typically good not great. Hearty portions. Not ideal if you're diabetic but you can order items which are more sensible. The Food Network show, "Restaurant Impossible" would have a field day with the menu! I have never seen a menu crammed with more items! Crammed is the operative word here! The atmosphere is fun! The place is kept... More
