As the "Mine-Co" is just around the corner from our home, we dine there pretty frequently. We have 3 littles and we've never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a table. It's a busy, bustling place, but very appropriate for families with children. The fish fry serves up generous portions and has always been good (and we've tried... More

The outside really throws you for a loop, and when you first walk inside it's a little dark, but when you sit down and look around it brings out the fun side of you! That's if you have one. The tables are cool real wood slabs, the walls look like pyrite cave walls and there's a dripping stalagmite, boots coming... More

Ok, the primary reason to go to a restaurant is the food and Wausau Mine has a long history of offering a very nice diversified menu. Great sandwiches and pizza options as well as Italian fries that are a reason for the destination all by themselves. The service has always been what I call local comfortable. For a long time...

Not a bad place to eat . The food was very good and priced properly. The service could not have been much worse though. The décor is a take it or leave it type. Not impressed.

If you are looking for an unusual dining experience you have got to go to the Wausau Mine Company. I was told this use to be a night club now turned restaurant. The outside of the building looks like it is going to fall over due to its odd shaped building constructed like an old miners shack. When you step... More

Was in town and decided to stop in and try it out again with my daughter for lunch. We were immediately greeted at the door and seated just as fast. Our waitress Nichole was great, attentive to our needs and very friendly. She was the type I would be proud to take home to mom lol.. Anyway, the food was... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch while in town for a meeting. We had a group of six and were seated immediately even though it was noon and the place was very busy. Four of the six in our group went with the Jalapeno Burger, none of us were disappointed. Very neat atmosphere also.

One of the worst meals I have ever had. I took my granddaughter out for lunch. Very disappointed in the food. I ordered Poppin Mac and Cheese thinking it would be similar to something I have had in other restaurants. It was supposed to be mac and cheese with bacon and popcorn chicken. They neglected to state in description that... More
