In town for a day & wanted to eat somewhere local. Enjoyed the welcoming vibe—we had fun quizzing each other with the Trivial Pursuit cards on the windowsill by our table. We ordered a burger, a hot chicken club sandwich & the chicken quesadillas. Everything...More

Went to Madhouse with my friends Friday night. Very busy but had no problem getting a table. Wow! 130 Whiskeys on their list! Fun and comfortable atmosphere; we had apps and a bunch of pints. Everything was great!

I will keep coming back time and time again. Atmosphere is great and comfortable. Average pricing. Tacos... I just love the tacos! Bench seating is a little uncomfortable for those with sore backs. Menu items are diverse and always tasty!

I once loved the steak and salad combo but this is getting skimpier and the salad dressing has changed to not-so-interesting. The speaker system is HORRID and the management doesn't seem to comprehend that people like to chat and socialize. The barbender was rude and...More

We found this place by accident and were happy we did. Loved our server Carmen, and the beverages and appetizers were excellent. Weren't too thrilled with the falafel wrap however.

A friendly neighborhood pub in the historic Bay Algoma district in Thunder Bay. Great pub fare, a large selection of draught beer (local taps, and old favorites) and over 130 selections on the whiskey bar. A local favorite for a fun, casual night out since 2001.
