I was quite please to hear that my girlfriend wanted to go to Up In Smoke. I had been to Thunder Bay several times and each time I came they were closed. I was surprised they were still open as they had strange hours and days closed. Friends had told me that this was one of the top ten restaurants... More

I always enjoy Chef Peter's Cat Fish Po Boy served with Gumbo. A tasty meal served nice and hot in temperature. Anything on this menu is well done from pizza to Smoked prime rib, to die for.

A table of six came on my recommendation, most ordering the classic pulled pork po-boy and seafood gumbo. Another ordered a burger and a third ordered the prime rib sandwich and fries. Everyone said it was great, with the gumbo recipients all saying they were blown away, and how perfectly the soup complimented the sandwich. Like the Hotels.com commercial with... More

What can we say? We like this place and we'll keep going there. At the same time we'd like to see more seafood restaurants in Thunder Bay.

Catfish is best this side of Texas. Steak cooked to a turn. We had a great time. Will go back everytime we're in Thunder Bay.

Stopped in at lunch, and had a great meal. Went for the catfish poboy and a side of gumbo, and a pogo and fries for the daughter. I thought it was awesome, and super nice to have an option for something like that instead of just fries or a salad like a lot of places.

Ordered take out. Chicken Caesar wrap with fries, one pound of honey garlic wings (thought we would try them as advertised best wings in town) cheeseburger with fries, side of veggies, and the chicken gumbo. Wings were horrible ate one and bf ate one and we threw the rest out. Have had better gumbo made at home, rest of the... More
