Service is generally slow and not particularly friendly at this eatery. A fun place to take families with kids for the unique atmosphere, but the food is truly not good. Flavorless Italian dishes smothered in red sauce, run of the mill burgers. Not a place we visit, unless family with kids are in town for the first time.

Arrived about 3:00. Only a couple tables were full. One waitress walked by, tossed menus & utensils on the table, muttered something we couldn't understand & left.

Wausau mine co was a staple as a kid growing up in Wausau in the '80's. All these years later we are taking our own kids when we get back to town and they love it too! The original building is different but the food-namely the Italian fries are exactly the same!! Don't ever change!

Waited for more than an hour to get the food. Had to order our own drinks from the bar because the wait staff disappeared after they took the food order. 1 order was not given to the kitchen and had to wait another 15 min for that order to come out.

This was the first time I tried Wausau Mine's Fish Fry and it was really good! Great taste, and good value! Always enjoy Wausau Mine - great local tradition of excellence! Always specials in the bar area and always friendly service! Tara B was our server and she was fantastic! Keep it up Wausau Mine!

The food and service have always been pretty good when we were here. I would recommend this for a cool family place to eat.
