Was in Davenport for some Christmas shopping and had dinner at Thunder Bay Grille. We had a slight hiccup on arrival with our reservation, but management made it right and we had a wonderful dinner. The menu is massive, there is something for everyone. The seafood selection and different preparations are incredible. We started our meal with the Match Sticks... More

This was the first time my husband and I had been here and we were disappointed. We went to all the trouble of getting a sitter for our first night out together in months and the service was terrible. We waited for at least 10 minutes for a Pepsi and long island when the place was practically empty. Since we... More

Had not been here for a while. Hostess must have been new- didn't know how to seat us- waited when there were open tables. Very poor service. Ordered salad with steak- medium well. Meat was extremely pink in middle. Sadley we did not eat the steak we had paid extra for. High priced meal for poor service and mediocre food.... More

We enjoyed a terrific seafood dinner at Thunderbay grill and thoroughly enjoyed the rustic decor. My husband had fish and chips and I had salmon with grilled vegetables and both were cooked perfectly. The house salads were generous and the waitress was very friendly.

Had Dinner there for the second time this month, and we were disappointed. Service was mediocre, and food was average at best. We would look for somewhere else.

Average isn't up to our standards, so we would appreciate knowing what you ordered so we can convey this to our team. If you would be willing to reach out to us, please email sdasso@hoari.com.

The atmosphere is nice, very rustic. Their homemade biscuits and cinnamon butter are delicious. The prime rib was tender and juicy. A little higher priced than other chain restaurants.

This was a fairly new place, by the look of it. It is part of a regional chain. We were hoping for a good steak dinner, and we got a decent one, but not great, especially at the price we paid. I think the entrees and extras are overpriced, but the quality is pretty good. Even though it did not... More
