In town for a day & wanted to eat somewhere local. Enjoyed the welcoming vibe—we had fun quizzing each other with the Trivial Pursuit cards on the windowsill by our table. We ordered a burger, a hot chicken club sandwich & the chicken quesadillas. Everything...More

We found this place by accident and were happy we did. Loved our server Carmen, and the beverages and appetizers were excellent. Weren't too thrilled with the falafel wrap however.

I come here quite often for lunch. The food is great, and I absolutely love the Falafel Wrap. The atmosphere brings a bit of a European Pub feel to it, which is nice.

Keep coming back for lunch or dinner. The food is consistent. Good beer selection. Good service. Same old decor since forever - but who cares. It`s good!

Wanted a good salad while visiting Thunder Bay and a friend recommended the Steak and Goat Cheese salad at Madhouse. It did not disappoint. I love how they grill some of the veggies before they put them on the salad. I also wanted to try...More
