I have eaten here many times over the years and I can say things remain consistent - which for me is a good thing - I like that in a restaurant. Food has always been good, with a nice menu selection, including the huge salad bar option. Service too had always been good and the atmosphere makes for a relaxing experience no matter if I come with one person, a work lunch group, after work for drinks group, a family meal, or a party.

Great Sunday brunch. Brunches are rare these days but this was all out. Huge salad bar, breakfast pastries and a few desserts, full breakfast with scrambled eggs, fish, chicken, ribs, fresh sliced ham, and ask the fixings. We had bloody Marys and mimosas to kick things off. Great coffee too. A special treat.

Huge restaurant, pleasant atmosphere, good waitstaff. Very large salad bar area. I had grilled chicken, which was so overcooked as to be a dried inedible lump, but everyone else seemed satisfied with meal. French fries were delicious, fish fry was tender. Kind of a boring menu, but a good number of options.

Came in Valentines Day weekend with my wife and we ordered their Alfredo With Grilled Chicken, and their Herb Roasted Chicken, which was delivered to our table under cooked, very gummy and running with red blood. The waiter Charlie never gave the option to choose the temperature of the chicken or I would said medium well or well done. I figured by name being Herb Roast Chicken it would be pretty much a great cooked meal, but I was wrong. My wife also had a couple small slices of bread that came with her meal that we tried to get another order of, but the waiter still couldn’t seem to get it right. He brought us out 2 orders of breads that were not even close to being the same bread that was included with my wife’s dinner. We still tipped him $10 on a $40 balance... Very Dissatisfied!

our friends took us out for our Anniversary and it was quite disappointing . most of the meals were good a walleye dinner, and two filets with a huge baked potato and a generous salad. the ribeye was not so good with a lot of grizzle .could not eat half of it. our server never came back to ask how the food was tasting or if we needed anything.. our friends apologized and were sorry that things turned out the way it did. i guess we wont be back.

We love Thunder Bay Grille! We live close & tend to go there often. We have also thoroughly enjoyed their brunches. Due to Covid we have been doing way more take out meals. Frankly, we didn’t even know about their take out menu, and found it by accident. So very glad we did! Order was done at the scheduled time, nicely packed/hot and delicious. You can order anything off the menu but we did the family 2 entree dinners which was a ton of food! We put half away for dinner the next night & it warmed easily. We have ordered many times when we have unexpected guests (adult kids!) - so convenient & relaxing. You do get a vegetable, potato, rolls & that great butter. Highly recommend trying the bison meat loaf - to die for so good! Highly recommend this restaurant for both dine in & take out!

We spent the night at a local Pewaukee, WI. hotel. We went over to Thunder Bay Grille in Pewaukee, WI. around 6:00 P.M. We ordered 2 Mudslides, and received 2 not even close, in texture or quality. As a matter of fact, the alcohol made the cream curdle. Can you imagine how sick we could have been, from these 2 drinks. We found out this business did not have a Blender in over 2 1/2 months. A business of this caliber makes us wonder why not. It is not hard to order 2-3 industrial strength one's on Amazon. Pictures show the way a drink can go wrong fast. If this is how they maintain the bar, imagine the rest...........2 Star Quality

Even after meeting and talking with staff ahead of our event, it is as if they completely forgot about us. Tables were not set up correctly, other tables for the wedding cake, gifts, etc were missing; there was no water on the tables, no bread, no wine as we ordered. The appetizers were never brought in. The head table was served almost last instead of first. Guests did not have drinks for the “toast”. Only 2 staff assigned to a party of 26, and they had 2 other parties to serve in addition to ours. We expressed our concerns to the Banquet Manger, who blamed it on the Manager on ‘Duty, and didn’t believe some of what we told her. Horrible experience to mark a special day in our lives.

The food is completely underrated. Fancy steak house quality food in a more low key casual environment. Every server we have had has been amazing. But I have to give a shout out to willow who has been a staple there. He was our server on your first day open after Covid and several times since then. Always a smile and a little joking around! Perfect service. And a little fun… love it!

Wow. What a disappointment. Things started great and then we sat for 45 minutes, no water, no refills, no bread. And when the food arrived, looked great but several dishes were very dry. I had the walleye jerky, another had sour bbq ribs, and we all had chew toy veggies.

Went to this restaurant for the first time recently. Had the bison smoked meatloaf. Is it bison meat? Not sure, menu didn’t clarify but bottom line is that is what a good meal. Might of been over cooked a little bit, but maybe that’s just me.

My family had arranged 1:30pm reservations. After paying my payment, I left at 2:30pm.I received a call approximately an hour later instructing that I needed to provide verification (a bank statement) that I had paid my bill. My family was accused of failing to pay the bill, and the waitress called the cops on family. In order to show that I paid my bill, I had to send proof via Facebook Messenger.My family was forced to wait until the police investigated their mistake. During Mother's Day, We never received an apology regarding the terrible treatment and situation.
