I have had a few dinners here with friends, business clients as well as bosses, family and etc. We love the atmosphere. I have also had a brunch or, two at this location that was very good. I have not been disappointed with the bar or, the wine choices either.

We went there for the tapas and we were pleased. They had a wide selection of items to choose from. I had the fish tacos, hamburger sliders, caprese salad and the mac cheese. All were decent but the best was the chocolate molten cake for desert. Nice selection of beers.

Thunder Bay Grille is located next to Quality Inn Suites. The interior was very rustic looking which reminded me of a ski lodge. There were several items carved out of antlers such as the chandelier and other decorations. There was a variety of food and the prices were very reasonable. The waiters are very friendly. Most of my food was... More

I have to admit, we got rave reviews to go to Thunder Bay Grille which may be what is skewing my opinion. When we went, it was not very busy (which is good and bad at the same time). The cost of the food was comparable to a trip to the Olive Garden. The food was decent but definitely not... More

Out server was very adept. Let me repeat that. Our server was very adept. We ate there last night with a party of 7. I had the bouillabaisse. It had scallops, shrimp, mussels and whitefish instead of just fish. It was different but the creole seasoning was very good. Others at my table said the tune and salmon was very... More

The food was great, the atmosphere was very nice, the prices were reasonable, the staff was accommodating and made us feel appreciated. The only small dislike we saw is the building could use some updating. That being said we would go back again

I was in Davenport for business and decided to go to the Thunder Bay Grille based on both the recommendation of the hotel clerk and the proximity to the hotel I was staying at. The restaurant itself is very nice, the dress code appeared casual but the restaurant had the lighting, design and menu of a high class fine dining... More
