I went with a group of 5 adults and my 4 grandkids. It is a place where you can take kids. They have a game room and they can run around and make all the noise they want. They service was very slow. It took a long time for a waitress to show up and even longer to get the... More

This is a nice place for any meal (including brunch). I recently ate here for a lunch meeting. There is something for everyone on the menu. They also have a large fresh salad bar with great selection of toppings and sides - plus soup. This visit I had the Steak salad. This is my favorite. Plenty of steak (prepared to... More

The Thunder Bay Grille Sunday Brunch is a lovely mid-price buffet with juice/soda/coffee included in the price (it's nice to not be nickle & dimed on basic beverages). I really enjoy that their lunch entrees aren't the stereotypical things and have selections of pork, beef, fish and chicken, making it truly something for everyone. My favorite was the Beef Burgundy... More

We have been here multiple times for various brunches. Our favorite by far has been the Thanksgiving brunch. We did visit yesterday for the New Year's day brunch as a family, it was OK nothing special. The chicken seemed to be a little bit undercooked, but we were not 100% sure. overall I do not think we would visit for... More

I had two dinners here and both were very good. The first was the Jambalaya entree and the second was the Bouillabaisse entree. Both were very good and the portion size was more than adequate. I had the salad bar both nights and would recommend this as well. The wait staff was attentive and very courteous. My friend had the... More

Went there with my wife on a Saturday night about 6. No wait to be seated and our waiter was attentive. Place was pretty quiet which was nice. I had the prime rib and my wife had the roasted chicken. I thought the prime rib was pretty good, but my wife thought the chicken was a bit dry. Will probably... More

I like this place and the food is good. The salad bar offers soup and dessert and it is really pretty good. They also offer bread and butter and that is always nice for a carboholic

Met a friend for lunch at Thunder Bay Grille, located south of I-94 and Hwy 164 in Pewaukee/Waukesha, Wisconsin. Motif is like a Canadian hunting type lodge. Lot of dark wood and overhead light. I figure this is some type of restaurant chain and because they are located close to "Machine Shed", I had to wonder if the two restaurants... More
