Love the cheesy pizza. Unique atmosphere. The location is a bit out of the way for me, but it is worth the trip to get the pizza now and then.

Stopped in for a burger at lunchtime, and it was delicious! Though the room was dark at first, they "upped" the lighting after a while which made it much better. Would've gotten 5 stars, but we had to ask for refills on our drinks, and there were no napkin dispensers on the table - a greasy burger calls for extra... More

Family friendly with great food, just get there early or try to make reservations. It gets really busy at dinner time because it is good. There is something on the menu for everyone even if you don't want pizza, which is delicious or go for the Italian Fries, yum.

Decent selection of beers on tap and more in bottles. I had the miner special - the ten ounce. It wasn't huge but it was decent sized and pretty good. The place is decorated like a mine which isn't all that unusual but it is pretty old so I feel that adds to it. Most of the menu was in... More

This was the first time I have been here. We found it on TripAdvisor after we did the fall ride at Rib Mountain. It wasn't very busy as it was 3:00pm on Sunday so we got seated right away and out server came to greet us. He was training and did good, just could of smiled more. We got the... More

Wife and I were told this was a good place to eat. When in Wausau we stopped in at the Wausau Mine Company for supper. A different style interior which was fun to be a part of. The food was very good and very friendly servers. We recommend to stop in next time you visit Wausau.

Very interesting experience. Looks like you are eating inside a coal mine. Food was very good and reasonable.

The decor of the restaurant is very unique. It looks like an old mine and the tables are set in the "mine". It was very fun and the steak was delicious. My only negative is the Italian Fries. It doesn't say what they are but has this big write up saying how they are the specialty. We order a small... More

This place looked amazing. Wait staff was not so great. Food was basic or average cafeteria style food. Nothing to rave about. Ordered chili which was bland, and a bbq pulled pork sandwhich. The sandwich was not fresh and just that it was warm had to ask for BBQ sauce as it had very little amount.

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
