    Oh I wish I could’ve given this place 5 stars. Visiting Thunder Bay with our dog we are limited as to where we can go and this place was dog friendly (on the patio only) and was also close to our hotel. Win win - or so we thought. You’re unable to book a table on the patio as it’s first come first served so we ate out early to make sure we could get a seat. The server was great although no one offered a bowl of water for the dog, we had to take it from another table after they left. The food - well, we were enjoying our appetizer when the mains arrived. I ordered the fish tacos and yes, they are ordered individually so I ordered 3 (a normal restaurant serving), however the fish in the tacos was enough for one taco, divided into the 3 🤷🏼‍♀️ so much taco with not much else. The server did ask if everything was ok and I did mention that fish in the taco would be nice - not much she can do, it should be the kitchen that stopped it leaving. When I went to pay, they gave me some espresso truffles as an apology and said they were training a new chef - obviously not very well. In summary - staff were attentive to humans but not pets and kitchen staff need better training.

    great caesars and the staff are nice. Good deals on different days BUT the food is lacking, especially compared to a couple years ago. Came here in 2021 and got the most delicious brisket poutine of my life and this year it looked/tasted nothing like before and the portion was much smaller. They didn't have gravy! For poutine! I even asked to add and they didn't have it at all. The pic with the half empty plate is from this time and the delicious looking pic is the one I got 2 years ago. Huge downgrade. The brisket was also super dry and hard to eat.

    Waitress was wonderful and attentive, unfortunately the food didn't live up to the service. The ribs were dry and stuck to the bones, my chicken pasta was nothing to write home about and the cornbread was stale. All in all the Coleslaw that came as a side with the ribs was the best part of the actual meal. Atmosphere was pleasant and again, wait staff was fantastic, too bad the food didn't measure up.

    5 star service by Jade on our visit today. Totally random pick of a restaurant turned into the best meal we had while visiting Thunder Bay. The tacos were excellent! Coleslaw was to die for and the Brisket & Blue sandwich was delish. Thank you Red Lion Smokehouse

    Food was amazing!! Service was very slow/intermittent, but they seemed understaffed the day we ate there. The servers were very apologetic, and compensated for the significant delays in food arriving which was very kind of them.
