I go here every week for lunch. It a completely different menu every week and they only server it Thursday-Friday. It's amazing! The head chef Steve Simpson won Thunder Bay's chef of the year award 2012.

It gets pretty loud with a full crowd and the atmosphere is a little dingy, but that's all part of it's charm.

The best beer selection in town...not that that means much. They have a pretty solid variety of bottled beer and the local brewery on tap. It would be nice if they got some more Ontario craft brews on tap.
If you are visiting Thunder Bay, this is the place to go.

Cheers!

I've been a number of times and have always enjoyed it. Most of the times it's been on the weekend, which is less desirable if you're not into large crowds. It's a cozy atmosphere when it's less busy and their live dj's add a nice touch for the party crowds.

In terms of selection, it's easily one of the best craft selections available in town - mostly bottles, and typically mostly those that are available through the LCBO (don't expect anything too crazy). A solid selection of styles, coupled with the fact that they serve Sleeping Giant Brewing's (Thunder Bay's only craft brewery) beers on tap makes it a worthy stop if you're cruising through and in need of a solid brew. I have noticed different brews available at various times, so they must update their list fairly regularly.

The food is delicious and definitely worth checking out. I've tried most of their menu items and have yet to be disappointed.

Definitely one of the more worthy stops in Thunder Bay... It's too bad there wasn't more of the same!
