We ordered a taco salad with flank steak that was really tough, not happy. Also had a chicken sandwich coated in Doritos crumbs that was very tasty and cooked perfectly.

We stopped here on a Friday night around 8:30 and were able to get a table almost right away. The Sov burger and poutin were delicious and very reasonably priced. Also got the local beer and loved it.

Tried to get our group into the Prospector, but they were packed, so a local with us showed us the Sov. Neat, funky little bistro with great foo, great beer, and a lot of fun! We were a large group, and they handled us well... If you're in Thunder Bay ... stop in!!

Used to love the Sov but our dinner tonight was disappointing. The menu has changed & is short. They got rid of the sweet potatoe fries along with the potatoe Latkes. Many of the menu favorites are gone. Ordered the Margarita pizza and it came with a pound of cheese on it and a few slices of tomatoes and shreds... More

The sovereign room has the empanadas back on the menu! They are lovely pockets of cheese and jalepenos, They could have been a bit more browned, but they tasted amazing! I love the breaded buffalo wings with a 360 beer. So glad that I came back again during the blues fest and for Sunday dinner before hitting Prime for a... More

Probably the best pub food you will find in Thunder Bay. If you are a poutine fan you need to try the duck confit poutine. Large selection of craft beer on tap. I wish they would have more then one cider on tap. My only complaint is the service is not always up to par.

This is absolutely the best food we have had in a long time! The fish and chips were the best I've ever had and the Sov burger was scrumptious. The fried chicken bites with buttermilk batter and honey were absolutely the best appetizer we have ever had. The service was great. Our waiter was quick, friendly and gave great suggestions...

Checked this place out from the TV show referral. It's a quaint bar. There is a short menu with awesome food. Dozens of choices of beer. The food was excellent. Worth a visit when you are in town.
