Better since upgrades

We stopped by a while back with some friends. The place is under new ownership, and the newly renovated interior is much more spacious and attractive. Food was good, and service was excellent.

Our hockey team dined here and it was awful! Took almost two hours to get 25 of us fed. We even called ahead and had a reservation. When we complained about the food and service the owner gave us heck for complaining saying we were a big group and what did we expect. I will never return to this place.

Stopped in for lunch. Dined solo! Waitresses were friendly and food, delicious. I enjoyed the Budweiser burger. Onions sautéed in Budweiser. Brilliant. But be prepared for half an onion on your patty! A rustic burger barn that takes you back to the 80's! Service and all! Go, you won't regret it!

Prime rib was not good. Should have known by the look of the place not to order prime rib, but you never know where you will find a hidden gem. This is not it. Prime rib was tough and a bad cut of meat. Should have sent it back. Vegtables were over cooked and cold. Service was OK at best.

Menu items are a little pricey for what you get, but the restaurant has nice atmosphere. I've been there twice so far. Food was good, service adequate.

PROS: Everything was clean Everything came fast but that's probably because we were the only patrons in the place My grilled chicken sandwich was okay CONS: Poor, unfriendly service Place is very run-down looking and is in need of an update Our fries were horrible Wouldn't recommend and wouldn't return.

Why drive to Winnipeg to enjoy great Prime Rib at less than half of the price of some of those so-called upscale establishments. I go every Friday to Thunder's Restaurant for the best Prime Rib and the service is attentive and cordial. There are very few good places to dine in Dauphin - Thunder's is Number 1 on my list.

Went to Thunders for a lunch. Food was average at best. Lots of grease and the soup was "stand a spoon in it" thick. The service was fast and the staff were pleasant however I think they have accepted mediocrity in the kitchen.
