Apparently a new owner...food was good & service was outstanding! Pleasant friendly staff!! WE had the prime rib special which was a generous portion and cooked just the way I asked! Glad we gave them another chance!!

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.

The last time I was there was on a Friday night and their special is Prime Rib. It was cooked the way I requested it and everything was hot. The Little Thunder Burger is an excellent choice, but I don't like the flavour of their fries.

Soup was watered down, burgers tasted like rancid, rotten meat, chicken fingers were absolutely horrible, dry pieces of ...chicken?!( I hope) dipped in cornmeal.
