“Great brunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went for the Sunday brunch. Thought it would be just breakfast food but wasn't. Had that plus sliced turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, a pasta dish, enchiladas, a beef and noodles dish, Mac n cheese, a salad bar, a guy making made-to-order omelets, a ham carving station, a cereal and pastries bar and...whew. Oh, forgot the shrimp! Price was about $10 per person so a good deal too. Nice lodge type decor with the fireplace going. That felt good today! We'd go back for sure. I also want to go back and try the small plates they are advertising on a sign. I suppose they mean something like tapas during happy hour. Will check it out soon. Didn't even ask if there was a menu as we knew we were getting the buffet.

“Very average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

This place is a hit or miss. The atmosphere is relaxing. The food is average. Some dishes are good - the potato soup is enjoyable. Do not order pasta here... I should have known better, but I took a risk: the pasta is about the same as you would expect from a microwavable meal.
This place is accommodating to large parties and families.

Thunder Bay Grille is the only place for tapas in Davenport. There is a nice menu selection of typical tapas items. The atmosphere is "lodgy" and comfortable. The wine list is comprehensive. Overall a very nice evening out.outlined

“Warm and cozy, food was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Fire in the fireplace on a cold windy night. It was cozy, nice setting. Service was pretty good, friendly and helpful. We had salads, chicken edamame and Caesar with shrimp. They were good, big and tasty. The chicken edamame was a unique peanut flavor. The drinks (wine) were pricey, $7 for a small amount, the second glass was a little fuller. It was a good experience, not fantastic, would go back.
