Thunder Bay Grille - Rockford
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.

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.

Thank you for the 5-Star review!
Food was great! Service was great! We ordered a main entree for our kids to split; and without asking, waitress had it split for us vs. having to do to that at the table. Servings were appropriate to generous. Taste was great! Will definitely be back!
Christopher, thank you for the wonderful recommendation!
We drove from out of town just to go to this restaurant, we had been told that it was a very good place to eat. The ribs I had were undercooked very fatty and tough and the meal was supposed to come with fries and they never came out. After leaving very disappointed we went home and after about 1 hour my wife, mother and myself all became very ill. Very disappointed
Our waitress, Chelsea Sage, was fabulous. Very sweet and accommodating. There were a group of 6 ladies, so we truly had her running. She couldn't do enough for us and I truly believe she went "the extra mile."
Can't wait to return and will definitely ask for Chelsea....great waitress.
Food was delicious!
Great service , the fried cod was excellent. We went there for the Friday fish fry. The steak, shrimp,soup and as well as the salad were great. Been to the Davenport location , great consistency at both locations.
Food and atmosphere was great and so were the prices !
The only issue with the restaurant is that the music playing is too loud. We always try to get a booth in between speakers.
Buffet was well stocked, clean, easy to access. The food was kept at appropriate temperatures for each item. There was quite a variety as well.
They handled our party of 16 with ease. Good value, great staff, very accommodating.
We have visited Thunder Bay Grille many times. We live in Beloit, WI and love the Northwoods ambiance, especially the fireplaces. We have never been disappointed. The food is always very good and the service is always good
Thank you for dining with us and providing the incredible review! We hope to see you again, soon!
Grandsons 16th birthday
Thank you for choosing Thunder Bay Grille to celebrate your grandson's birthday! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
The baked fish had an unusual spice I didn’t care for. Drawn butter alone would have been better. The fish just wasn’t good however the fried was good. The salad wasn’t good either and the cheesecake did not taste fresh or made there as I was told. Would not go back.
We will not be going back. Food was vey disappointing.
Delicious brunch!! Never disappointed, worth the hour drive for sure.
Thank you for the wonderful recommendation!
Some of the food was cold,due to broken chafing dishes, ran out of dishes at 1 point and Spicey Bloody Mary was horrible! Mgmt said they are working on these items & I’m sure they will. I would go back again because the warm food is so good! It is a really good deal for what you get. I also loved the layout of restaurant
Cindy, thank you for providing feedback about your recent experience with us. I'm happy to hear that management was able to address these issues during your visit right away. We take our guest feedback very seriously and always strive to resolve issues as soon as possible.
It was our first time to this restaurant. We were very pleasantly surprised by both the diversity of the menu and the taste of every item ordered. "Our Famous Seafood Fondue" appetizer is an absolute must. Will definitely be back!
John, thank you for the great review! Our Seafood Fondue is definitely a fan favorite! We are looking forward to your next visit!
Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. Good spicy shrimp appetizer. Tasty crab cake and salad with chicken. The tiramisu was the best my friends had ever tasted - and they've tasted a lot, LOL. My caprese flat bread was a bit soggy, but I still enjoyed at least half of it. Our waitress went missing a few times, but we usually could stop someone going by our table for assistance. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Rockford, good variety.
Thank you for the great recommendation! We apologize for the spotty service you received. We will be addressing this as a training tool moving forward.
We arrived early for our reservations and had a drink in the bar. The service was excellent in both the bar and at the table. The food was great tasting and a good value.
Pat, thank you for the wonderful review!
We ordered the Porterhouse but we got a T bone
Server said that is what everyone got
Steve, thank you for the great review!
Expensive drinks but overall was a great experience.
Chrissy, thank you for the great review!
Coming from out of town we didn’t know what to expect. Our Meal was fantastic, the drinks were spot on! We would have stayed longer but were in town for the John Mellencamp Concert and had to leave. Would definitely recommend and go back.
Thank you for the great review. We hope you stop in again the next time you are in the Rockford area!
Thank you for the great review!
