One of the places the Motel owner recommended. I had the Seafood on a bed of linguine. It was actually an appetizer size (which wasn't clear on the menu). It was what we would call a small plate in the states. I wish there had been just a little more for the taste alone but also felt it wasn't quite... More

Fabulous food fare. I had the appetizer of sautéed seafood over linguini and shreds leeks. There was plenty to eat there. Very accommodating staff when allergies are known. Would definitely go back when in the area.

We boated into the Thunder Bay Marina and happened on Mad House. It was a great find. Feliz was a very gracious host. The food was great, beer excellent. I would certainly recommend this stop on your travels through Thunder Bay.

This tavern seems like a popular place, very busy, good selection of beer and a good menu of home cooked food. Definitely worth checking out.

Have been to Madhouse numerous times for lunch and dinner. It has a great casual ambiance, like a very congenial neighbourhood pub. Can sit at bar or a table. Menu is not extensive but has good set of choices. Food is solid, not spectacular but very good - have never been disappointed. Prices very reasonable. Have had good salmon, quesadillas,... More

Great ambiance, great beer, one of the only places that has more than 'CANADIAN' on tap. Trust me, a great place to meet people and have great wings, amazing burger and a nice cold glass of beer!

we usual enjoy nice quiet evenings out together. This all changed on Halloween. We changed up the venue and went to the madhouse on a recommendation from a friend. The service, the hot waitresses and bar staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was exceptional. The cake was one of the best I've eaten. The best part of the... More

I sampled two Sleeping Giant beers and two other local brews that were on tap. All four beers were way above average. Staff was friendly and cheerful. Clientele were chatty - the noise level was good for conversation. Sadly I had an invite to a friends cabin and did not get to sample the fare. I am going back next... More
