We often go to the Madhouse for food and drink and it is always great. We were there twice this week and noticed both times the staff were even better than normal, constantly moving, multi tasking and friendly. The food was outstanding as always, but...More

A decent burger and fries; not awesome but good. Nice atmosphere. Good service. Limited parking lot space but street parking was manageable. Nice area of town with interesting shops around. Primarily known for being a whiskey bar with over 100 to chose from.

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!

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.
