Thunder Bay Grille - Rockford
The seafood fondue was very creamy and surprisingly yummy. The bread served with was awesome. The menu was limited but the choices were reasonable.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Service was phenomenal. Ambiance was cozy and welcoming. The food was amazing - so rich, flavorful & decadent - with nice size portions for the prices. The seafood fondue is a must try! We did order it without the craw fish, but my gawd it was delicious! It exceeded my expectations by far! I will definitely visit this restaurant the next time I am in the Rockford area. Thanks for an outstanding dining experience!!
Nice atmosphere, and indoor/ outdoor seating available. Food was very good!

Our second year enjoying a New Year's Eve dinner at Thunderbay. This year we sat in a bar area booth where there was a bit of activity on a quiet level (party animals :-) ). Food was delicious as usual (we go there frequently). The rustic atmosphere is cozy and pleasant.
Peter, thanks for bringing in the new year with us! We are so thrilled you decided to celebrate with us again. We appreciate your patronage and that you took the time to post your review.
Great Place for a Business Dinner, met Customer there at the Bar 1st, then a nice steak!

Bob, thank you for the great review
The food was extremely tasteful and very plentiful. The staff did a great job of keeping up the supply and Cat (our waitress) was awesome! Can't wait to have Sunday brunch again & soon :)
Dennis, thank you for the great review. We hope to see you for Sunday Brunch again soon!
The bison meatloaf was very good and had a nice sauce with plenty of mushrooms. The potatoes could have used a bit more flavor (butter). I substituted broccoli for the green beans. This was the big disappointment, it was very overcooked, basically just mush.
My husband had fish with mixed veggies, his vegetables were almost raw (uncooked). Our waitress was very nice and perfectly attentive.
Thank you for dining with us and posting your feedback. I'm sorry to hear there were some issues with your meals. Please know we take our guest feedback very seriously and have addressed this with our chef. We hope you stop in and give us another try soon! Thank you!

Food was excellent (chicken jambalaya and ribeye steak) and the service was good. Would definitely go again.
Thank you for the wonderful review! We look forward to your next visit.
Food was better than most brunch places, the variety was small though overall great for the price. Better lighting should have been used during the day inside. Service was good. We would go back.

Went for the Sunday brunch. Excellent selection, very fresh, overall excellent.

The ambience of a northwoods lodge was evident from the fire in the huge stone fireplace to the dark beams overhead. The menu was extensive, service timely, and food was very good. We enjoyed the half off bottle of wine special for Monday night.
Marcia thank you 5-star review and recommendation. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your experience and we hope to dine with you again soon!
Our waitress wasn't told we were a reservation group. We had to ask multiple times where waitress was. Understand it is busy but we had reservations and was told because of walkin parties why service was slow.
It was OUTSTANDING. Each of my friends had a different dish. Each of us LOVED what we ordered. Our waiter was very attentive, well informed, and helpful.
Wendy, thank you for the wonderful review! We look forward to your next visit with us.

Food was tough the food from the menu should have been excellent for that many choices
We and our friends each had two of our grandkids when recently eating at Thunder Bay. My two our picky eaters but the kid’s Mac and cheese and honey glazed chicken wings were amazing!!! The kids loved both!! Everything we adults ordered was delicious!!! (Roasted chicken, cedar plank salmon, bison burger and turkey burger) The roasted veggies and steamed broccoli which we substituted for fries was the perfect compliment to our burgers! We can’t wait to dine at Thunder Bay again! Soon! The server was excellent!!! Attentive and very i tera rice with the kids!!
Thank you for the wonderful review! We look forward to your next visit!
I can’t say enough about this restaurant!! The atmosphere was perfect. We were in town staying at the hotel for a tournament for our son and we needed somewhere to eat. Man were we glad this was the restaurant that was next door to our hotel! We had the fried cheese curds and stuffed mushrooms for our appetizer and they were delish! Then our salads came which also tasted Amazing! We ordered The shrimp jambalaya and the fish and chips! BOTH AMAZING! Our boys had the fried shrimp basket and the cheese pizza from the kids menu and they were pleased as well! Our waitress was Amazing and we never had one empty glass! Thanks again for the great experience at your restaurant! Sincerely, The Marsh Fam!
Erin, thank you for the wonderful recommendation. We are happy to hear you and your family had a great experience. We hope to see you again soon!
We have come here for brunch a few times. Everyone enjoys it. On Easter before there were pies and whipped cream. We had hoped to have pie when we came last Sunday, but were informed it's only for holidays.
Thank you for the great recommendation. Thank you for spending Easter Sunday with us! We hope to see you again soon.
We are all former Loyola of Chicago basketball players - two from the 1963 NCAA Championship team. We came from Chicago, Madison & Racine WI. The location was a central as we could find for all. It turned out to be most central located with easy access off the I. The waitress was super along with food, service and atmosphere. The online reservation for a table was most helpful. We all had a great time. Looking forward to a return down the road.
Thanks for your kind hospitality.
Mike, thank you for dining with us and taking the time to write such a great recommendation. We look forward to your next visit with us.
