You've got to eat here

Stopped here on a recent motorcycle trip, it was suggested by some people we met along the way.

The "Sov" is a non-descript location, with a Chinese food sign out front. But once you get past the exterior and inside, you find a charming pub style environment. With a fantastic selection of international beers, and amazing indie food that I believe is locally sourced, you are in for a unique experience.

This is the third time we have eaten at The Sovereign Room and it always pleases. I especially enjoy the fried chicken and the pizza but the truth is everything is delicious. The space is on the hipster side but not pretentious. (We are far from being hipsters and still like it). The clientele is a generational mix which is... More

What a nice alternative to the chain restaurants. Good beer selection to go along with some very inventive and tasty food. Liked our salad choice and the flatten chicken done in the pizza oven. The skin was nice and crisp and the chicken moist. Loved the original spiral staircase in this former Chinese restaurant.

We had the seared scallops with pork belly and a charcuterie platter. The flavours were incredible and the prices very reasonable for the amount of time needed to prepare the pork belly and the home made sausages.

If you're looking for something fresh and new (the food) this is the place. The duck poutine and salmon tartar were great. For affordable dining in a place were they care about what your eating this is the place to go. Of course the partons can get a little loud, it's not formal and it looks like it did 50... More

Excellent scallops and pork belly, asparagus salad and sweet potato latkes! Great atmosphere and well-priced for the quality of the food. Will definitely return again!

We stopped in for a late dinner on a Friday night. We were impressed that a place like this exists in Thunder Bay, it wouldn't be out of place in a bigger and trendier city. Menu was creative, thoughtful and well executed, beer selection was good. Service was laid back and friendly. there was a DJ so we ended up... More
