Had to sit for 20 minutes and then get up and ask the wait staff if we could have at least a glass of water. Food was cold when it finally got into the room.

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!More

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.More

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.More

Our extended family ( 12 attending ) got together for a family dinner here. We all had a good experience here last year so we decided to visit again. The restaurant was able to accomodate our reservations on time and had one of there seperate...dining rooms with a large table set up for us. The waitstaff was flexible with additional servers assisting in taking beverage and food orders and bringing drinks and food to our table. The menu has many options that should meet the wants or needs of almost anyone. I ordered the full rack of ribs dinner and was very satisfied with my meal. The others also seemed to have a great experience with their meals also. The restaurant does have a very complete salad bar area. If you have a group and you call ahead for reservations, you will not be disappointed.More

Yes Thunder Bay in Pewaukee will host Thanksgiving. There is information on their website - this is a busy day so I would call and make reservations.
