The Mining Company definitely has the best burgers in Dubuque! The drinks are pretty good as well! I recommend trying the Cave In or the Long Island Iced Tea.

Once again we were going to base our selections on recommendations from the site. While I won't say I disagree in total with the other reviews - I guess I would not say this is the most ideal place for families. It is probably more bar than restaurant. It is a lot smaller than we thought and the restaurant restrooms speak to the expectation to the number of people that will be using the place. (Or Iowa has a different defination of fixture count to occupants). The food was okay - not outstanding but okay. We had burgers, taco salad, and chicken fingers in our group. The kids meal was a good size portion for a small child. The other two were able to split a hamburger and be full. Not a wide variety in microbrews or beers other than Budwiser or Leinkugel. The place was clean. Totally packed when we arrived at 7PM on Saturday. The waiter was the best thing of the whole evening - it is a seat yourself place but he saw us enter with 3 small kids and immediatly asked if we could wait while he gets a tab finished and clear a table. Within 3 minutes we were seated comfortably in a packed restaurant. Never would have seen that table without his assistance. He was also exceptional with talking to our children who wanted to order themselves. His advise on beer options was spot on and very hospitable. It was a reasonable cost, okay food - the drink specialies might be a better option. BUT if you want to watch a game on tv and eat pub grub - this is the place.

The Mining Company has the best burgers and the best selection of burgers in town. For the longest time however, they allowed smoking in their very small restaurant. That was awful. I'm assuming that they don't do that anymore? The drinks are also pretty good. If you're looking for something big and tall, try the Cave-In. Beware it's a little on the sweet side you you might be able to only have one.
