Great atmosphere!

Good food, good service, great atmosphere, always a good time. Haven't tried anything that I didn't like. One of my favourites is the steak and goat cheese salad.

The Madhouse is my "go to" for a sure thing. Great atmosphere, always a friendly crowd at the bar and funky seating arrangements. Food could use some up-dating, since many new restaurants have popped up in the area, but I'm not complaining! I really enjoy the steak salads.

We were here for a quick dinner before a comedy show down the street (at the Hoito). The food and service were pretty good, the price was quite reasonable, and it has some interesting menu items e.g. sweet potato and roast red pepper soup. But the place was a bit noisy when crowded. Also, our table was the closest to... More

I must say the food at the madhouse is consistently great, the Steak and Goat Cheese Salad is to die for as I have it 9 out of 10 times I go to the mad house and I go to the mad house more than any other restaurant in Thunder Bay, The Pub atmosphere is great and is hard to... More

I came here with my girlfriend after the Buskers festival. It was hard to find a table, but usually this place is packed. It's a good idea to reserve a table in advance if you have expectations. It's a good place to come with friends to have an app and beer or to eat the mad Burger if you're really... More

This restaurant has a consistent following for some very obvious reasons. The menu selections have been offered for a number of years and invariably you will find yourself ordering the same thing on your return. That is because, it's all consistently good. The atmosphere has not changed since opening day and as a result attracts the same locals cause they... More

Nice place filled with middle aged people (I am one also) so we fit right in. Pleasant waiter who you could joke with. Food ready very quickly which was a surprise. Can not go wrong here.

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.
