The service was very good. The food was typical pub fare. We were expecting a bit more from our meals. It was very busy on a Thursday evening after work and probably a nice spot to get a drink and some appetizers.

We were visiting Thunder Bay for a few days. We wanted to try some local beers and have a snack. We found the right place. The menu had so many good sounding items that I wish we were hungrier. I am a vegetarian and so many places only have one (often sad) vegetarian items. There were plenty to choose from... More

This pub is the equivalent of "CHEERS", the TV show. You feel at home and everyone knows your name. The food was great and the service superb.

The food is fantastic, the service is top notch. As a frequent customer over the last few yrs, I would love to see a new mix of tapas dinning choices. Not a complaint on food here, just would love to see something new on the menu. Do eat here ! :)

Met with friends for drinks, ended up having appetizers and supper. The nachos are great and the beer cheese dip with apple slices and hot baked pretzels is fabulous. Some of us had the steak & goat cheese salad - delicious! The steak was cooked to my liking. I will order that again. Others had the chicken club sandwich, and... More

Delicious all the time. The cheese was good. I guess you never see aboriginals in that establishment and that bothers me. Anyway, the staff are cool. Miss being a alcoholic, such a person would love a place like this. Nachos are a yummy value. I don't see white lines on the toilet seat.

I love the Madhouse! They have a great selection of beer and other mixed drinks. Their food is great but furthermore their steak and goat cheese salad is to die for!. I love the atmosphere here. You can have business men and hippies and everything in between mingling in this place like it's the norm!
