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.

I had dinner mid week on the bar side of Thunder's. The atmosphere was a very cool western / cowboy theme. We had pizza and enchaladas, both were great!!!

Good solid food, lots of choice, busy, and clean. Good prices and great breakfast. Once had some great pie! Friendly staff! Good family choice for all ages, great to support local. Older atmosphere, but the food is what counts! Check it out.

Cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. Used to enjoy but has deteriorated within the last few yrs.

My wife and I wanted something other than the "bar and grill" type places so we checked out Thunder's. This restaurant is in the heart of the city near the recreation complex and although it doesn't look like much from the outside, it is a good place to go for a nice bite. There is a nice selection of lighter... More

One of my favorite non-chain restaurants/lounges. It has good food at a decent price, as well as amazing drinks and a exciting atmosphere.
