There is a certain birthday we celebrate here. We try something new each time & are never disappointed. The service has always been great.

Lots of choices, usually crowded but well worth it. I love that they usually have lots of non traditional choices.

Great variety of options for the small plates. Always fun to try new items. Service is good and prices are reasonable. Sitting at a the low, soft chairs makes for a leisurely dining experience. There is a lot more to the menu than the small plates but they are our favorites.

We were impressed when we first walked in to this restaurant. The decorations were incredible! It gave the feel of a log cabin. Thunder Bay Grille specialized in "Small Plates": dishes that can be eaten as an appetizer, or combined to make an entrée. There was also flatbreads, wraps, hamburgers, pasta, and more!

It was truly a wonderful meal and the was... More

It seems whenever I am in Davenport I end up at Thunder Bay for Sunday brunch. Love that they have grits on their brunch menu- a dish not easily found near home (outside of Chicago).
