My husband and I were in Wausau and decided to try the Wausau Mine Company since we've read a lot of positive reviews. There are some pros and cons. Pro: Our waitress was very good, made some suggestions and did a great job. Pro: The...food was hot, fresh and very tasty. Con: The sign from the street is easy to miss and that's just what we did, missed it and had to check navigation on where to find it. Con: I understand the atmosphere that the restaurant is going for, but it is still a bit too dark in the booths, which makes it difficult to read the menu.More

Hi Skathe78! Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We appreciate the feedback.

We were in the area visiting family for one of the people we were traveling with. The exterior, interior and overall atmosphere are fun but it is smaller than it appears from the outside. We understand that like a lot of places the staff is...stretched thin but with that being said it took the bartender a little to warm up and the same with our server when we were sat. But, they did eventually loosen up and smile and laugh with us as our time and experience with each of them went on. Both the bartender and our server were prompt and otherwise attentive and the food was out super quick which we found amazing based on how busy they were. The hostess was a different story in that she had an amazing personality and disposition from the very moment we had contact with here. Her patience as we had to adjust our time to be seated because our friends were late is to be commended. She understood and checked on us every 15 minutes or so to see if we wanted to be put back on the list. And she even took the time to check on tables and meals when she was not needed at the front area. I've seen mixed reviews on the food and want to address that... While one of the appetizers (Italian fries) was bland. However the other appetizer and soup we had was simply amazing and flavorful. The pizza that came to our table was very good (I had one slice). Ample toppings with a good and flavorful sauce. DO NOT order extra cheese, they are more than generous with cheese on their pizza. I had a burger that was good to order, on a fresh roll and a good amount of the toppings I ordered. The food bill was really very, VERY reasonable! So why only a rating of 4, honestly, the drink prices were a little high for what they we drank.More

This place is hyped but when you go there it is ok. Not stellar for sure. Drinks were made just like any other place. Food was hot but not tasty. Not saying it was bad just no character.

One of the people in our group suggested this place for lunch on our return trip home after a weekend getaway. We were delighted to find such a cute restaurant and bar and even more delighted to discover the Sunday Special was a very tasty...Bloody Mary with a beer chaser for $3.00. We found the menu loaded with tasty selections and mostly fairly priced. We also found the bartender and our server to be friendly and helpful. We want to keep this place on our list to visit the next time that we are in the area.More

Unique and fun theme added to experience. Staff was very friendly but service was a little slow. Burgers were good, but nothing special. I think kids would really enjoy this place.
