It was nice.

Directly across the street from our hotel on our visit to Iowa. It was very clean, spacious, nicely decorated. The food was very good. Nothing to complain about. It wasn't outstanding, but very, very good. Service was outstanding.

My husband and I were here today and this restaurant is wonderful for a couple looking for a romantic brunch. My FAVORITE was the bottomless mimosas!!! Second was the fresh strawberries and pecans on waffles... *soooo delicious* Third was the battered Shrimp!!! I don't know what kind of breading they use, but I NEED to find out!! They had a...

Went for a late dinner at Thunder Bay with my wife and 3 other people. First time there and found it a delightful dining experience. The menu had a nice variety at a good price.

My husband and I were in Davenport for our anniversary on July 18th and decided to try Thunder Bay Grille. We have one in Wisconsin, but we never seem to be able to get there. When we first walked in it smelled musty - kind of like when you first open a cabin for the season. Since the decor is... More

Went to Thunder Bay to celebrate my wife's birthday. We planned to have a couple of drinks and some tapas. We were told by hostess that we could wait 45 minutes for a table or eat in the bar immediately. We ordered drinks, and were served quickly. However her drink was not good at all, who puts cranberry juice in... More

My husbands steak was alright but DO NOT go there is you have to avoid gluten. They say they have options but are not even confident in what they have that is gluten free. I ended up getting a plain burger (was small and over cooked) but could not even have ketchup with it because it was generic and not... More

First let me preface this by saying I waited tables in college. It is apparent that there was almost no training if wait staff. The waitress was asked about the food and really didn't want to make recommendations. "Everything is good." "Depends on what you like". Two of us ordered a half rack of ribs (about this below). I ordered... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, so we tried it. I was surprised they were not busy on a Friday night. The food was good, but service was extremely slow. We were told it would be a 15 minute wait for a table. We went to the bar and spent most of that time waiting for anyone to acknowledge us so... More

Our kids go to a college in the Quad Cities (Davenport, Bettendorf in Iowa; Rock Island and Moline in Illinois) on the Illinois/Iowa border. When we visit we ask them to find good restaurants to check out. Thunder Bay looks on the outside like a sterile roadside chain. It isn't. Warm, inviting interiors greet you, broken up by several dining... More
