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.

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
