We had been to the Sovereign Room in a trip to Thunder Bay once before, and had to go back. We were not disappointed. We went for Saturday brunch and enjoyed two delicious meals while listening to great music. Friendly service. We'll be back any time we're in Thunder Bay.

We got in to Thunder Bay late on Sunday night. There wasn't much open. I was happy to find the Sovereign Room. There wasn't much for vegetarians except pizza. I got the vegetarian special. Unfortunately, the crust was dried out. While not burnt, it must have been in the oven too long. The middle of the pizza tasted fine. I... More

Visited after being recommended by a colleague. Great atmosphere and a nice setting. Server lacking in knowledge when asked about local beers almost seemed like he couldn't be bothered. We had wings which were good and salads which were a disappointment to say the least. The pizzas did look good.

I came here with my mother, I had the Spanish pizza and she had the nachos and both were great! The outside looks dated but on the inside the decor is cute and "hipster". Tons of craft beer as well. Servers are very friendly.

We were looking places to eat on Sunday at 9pm. Stepped in to the Sovereign Room- it was very busy, friendly and fast service, tasty food and good price. We were so pleased to find this cool spot.

When you enter this restaurant, you've pretty much entered my Grandpa's rec room without the old-man smell:D It's a kitschy, ecclectic room with private booths and open tables. The food is phenomenal. Innnovative and expertly prepared. If you have mobility issues, you may have problems with the washrooms. They're at the bottom of a steep, narrow staircase with little room... More

Our family, all adults, had supper tonight and thoroughly enjoyed our incredible fried chicken, pizza and nachos. My brother had raved about the chicken and his raving was totally accurate. I am not a fried chicken person but this was delicious. The pizza toppings are out of the ordinary and delicious. We did not think we would finish all our... More

While its not a huge menu, what was on there was incredible. Two of us had gourmet pizzas which were delicious, and the nachos and fried chicken were to die for. The atmosphere is basic but the food was worth it.
