Description: 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.

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 nasty refusing to change the station to something without vibrating bass. Hey, why not Jazz? Guess this place has zero sophistication. Dark dank and not-to-clean.

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 was flavorful & plentiful & our server was quite helpful with recommendations.

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.

Three of us went for dinner at recommendation of our hotel for some casual eating. A busy spot, we waited about 10 minutes for a table. There is a large bar with seating as an option. A happening spot during the evening with pub fare. Food was good and service was pretty good considering every table and the bar were full.

Wow! We were so happy to find this place all the way out here in Thunder Bay. We're out-of-towners and got stuck for some late-night food and refused to drive across the province to eat at another stupid Montana's or other chain garbage. We loved everything about the place; very cozy, warm atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly and the service was great.

We sampled the chicken tenders (actual thick, white meat), fries (which were AMAZING, cut with a kind of curve and cooked to golden perfection), the chicken quesadilla and the pita with dips--all fantastic. The pita is served warm and is lightly seasoned, just delicious, and it came with black olives (the best).

The blue lemonade drink and whiskey sour were really tasty, too!

Thanks for a great time, we'll definitely return next time we're up here.
