We stopped for a quick family dinner of pizza and cheese fries. The cheese fries were delicious. The pizza, while good, had a sweeter tomato sauce than I like - just a personal preference. The wait staff was professional and quick. My daughter asked for a drink recommendation, and our waitress suggested an apple pucker - which was delicious. When... More

I have been going here for years and now live close by, so this is one of our favorite lunch spots! The Italian fries with cheese are excellent and we order these to go quite a bit. Usually when we eat there we get the Philly sandwich. It's packed with meat, peppers, onions, mushrooms and loaded with cheese. Very reasonably... More

We all had something different and enjoyed (w/leftovers). Quick & efficient service. Unique atmosphere. Wish I could have been able to celebrate my b-day (a day late) to experience how the panning for gold(prize) works. It would've been new and exciting for all of us (or for the graduation boy to be able to do). Good customer service suggestion -... More

Fun and original - my 6 year old loved the worm and dirt dessert! The food was ok, nothing spectacular, but nice and yummy!

Really fun atmosphere! Great for families and a huge beer selection in the "Rusty Nail Salon". Food was okay- similar to Rain Forest Cafe, but a mining theme. Good fried foods, but don't try to order anything too fancy.

THE FOOD HERE IS ABSOLUTE GARBAGE!!! I've eaten at this place twice both times I was completely disgusted! The first time I went in with my mother (who I usually go out to eat with) and we each had fish frys. The batter was soaked in grease and the fish was mush it was disgusting! The Tartar sauce had a... More

I love this place! You must have their Italian Fried with cheese. They have a great bar and a very unique interior. It looks like a mine shaft. This is a Wausau novilty. All their food is very good.

My husband stopped in there this past Friday because I had raved about it to him a while ago. Not sure what has changed since then, but he came home very disappointed (and hungry)! He ordered the baked cod and when it came, it was so dried out, you could lift the whole block of fish off your plate by... More

Terrible food. Terrible salad. The Italian fries were not bad but that alone is filling. My kids, my husband and I didn't like the rest of the food. The only thing my kids like was the mine theme.
