“Consistent and Never a Disappointment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Servers are always friendly and checking in to ensure satisfaction. Food is consistent and it is easy to find a favorite leaving it hard to try new things. Restaurant in clean and comforting. Nice room temperature even on cold day.The restaurant is established and has been around for a long time because it is consistent.

“Fantastic Atmosphere, Fantastic Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Gargoyles has been a staple for Fine Dining in Thunder Bay for a few years now and it hasn't let up it's high standards or great taste. The atmosphere, from the happy grinning gargoyles on the walls to the funky local artwork, is one of the city's best (and most original!) but the food is consistently above average. One of the stars of the menu us the Portobella Bruschetta - my absolute fave ever! And their Caesar is one of the best in town. Add a glass of wine and some live music and you have a very pleasant evening in the downtown core!

“Cutting Edge Cuisine in Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Gargoyle's has great, on-point current cuisine menu with a diverse and affordable beer and wine list, as well as a well-stocked bar, which is exciting to sit at before or after dinner! Great steaks and seafood!
