Delicious food, fair prices, nice spot!

Everything we ordered was delicious, unique and incredibly reasonably priced compared to Toronto. The asparagus salad was one of the best salads I've ever had! They have an awesome selection of craft beers and great service. The atmosphere is warm and lovely. Enjoy!

Great find in downtown Thunder Bay. We stopped in fairly late on a Sunday evening. The crowd was mainly young adults. Service was ok, our server didn't seem overly enthusiastic but we were seated promptly. The food was very good. I had the fried chicken which was fantastic, very moist and maple syrup was a nice touch. I also sampled... More

My fiance and I eat here probably once a week now. We're addicted. Favourites are the fried chicken, duck poutine, pizza, and we always get the pasta special to try it out as it changes all the time and is always mind blowing. We've never had one meal here that wasn't amazing at least. The service is fast and friendly,... More

I often go to the Sovereign room, usually for a cold beverage rather than the food. I have had their flatbread pizzas, cauliflower salad and their wings. All have been good. I do like the excellent selection of beers available. Personally I enjoy the Innis and Gunn Rum finished bottled beer which seems to be a hard beer to come... More

A neighborhood in the process of being revitalized offers a remarkable bistro in an old Chinese food location - nothing pretentious. Good start. The food made it conclusive. Here's what you can expect - relaxed ambiance, good craft beer selection, and a casual menu with very well prepared and presented food. As an aside, though limited, the wine list is... More

This was the first time we've been here and found the food very good. Portions are small but prices reflect this. Sharing plates is encouraged which we didn't know, therefore order 3 plates for 2 people. We ordered the daily pasta special and the scallop dish from the menu both excellent. Decor is not great and the booths are uncomfortable.

Stopped here on a recent motorcycle trip, it was suggested by some people we met along the way. Wow what a surprise in TBay this is a a very modern, hip location with great food with an urban modern twist. The place has a great vibe and is busy we couldn't get a seat on a Thursday night but the... More
