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 order and it just breadsticks covered in thick cheese with marinara sauce to dip it in. Very misleading.

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 baked, beer-battered, and breaded cod as well as the perch when available). The Italian menu is also decent but nothing fancy. The bar mixes good drinks and service is pretty speedy. As for ambiance, there is no outdoor patio or even windows inside, so if it's nice outside, we usually dine elsewhere. The kids love the indoor water feature. Overall, a solid restaurant where you know what you're gonna get.

The outside really throws you for a loop, and when you first walk inside it's a little dark, but when you sit down and look around it brings out the fun side of you! That's if you have one. The tables are cool real wood slabs, the walls look like pyrite cave walls and there's a dripping stalagmite, boots coming down a ladder from the ceiling. The menu is full of choices. I had the Frenh onion soup, which was flavorful, also shared the warm pretzel sticks with cheese, yum!

Ok, the primary reason to go to a restaurant is the food and Wausau Mine has a long history of offering a very nice diversified menu. Great sandwiches and pizza options as well as Italian fries that are a reason for the destination all by themselves. The service has always been what I call local comfortable. For a long time I could remember being served by the same service staff. I know the food was good and the place seemed busy enough so I bet the wait staff earned quite well. Well that's good business and who cares as long as we benefit on the receiving end.

The owner was involved in the business personally and also provided service to the community by offering thanksgiving meals delivered to some residents. A long tradition and nice touch.

Now for the atmosphere. The building is built to resemble and old mine shaft building. It is uniquely interesting and the same atmosphere carries over to the interior.

If you are looking for great food and a unique atmosphere, you can't go wrong with Wausau Mine Co.
