Thumbs WAY up to Darlene Green and the Silver Birch! I posted on EAT, Thunder Bay earlier in the day asking for recommendations for a child-friendly restaurant and Darlene recommended her very own.

The meals were excellent with great service. We had the elk shepherds pie, bison lasagna, pork chop with blueberry reduction, and steak. All were great tasting. Prices were very reasonable. We will go again.

A group of friends took me here while I was visiting. The service was great and the menu had a nice selection of local and seasonal fair. I had the Tarragon Rabbit with baked polenta and veggies; flavourful comfort food.

Everyone was thrilled with their meals, the service, the ambience, and the good time. The venue is perfect for a larger group that wants... More

We went with a large family group for a birthday. I like good food and decent portions and I wasn't disappointed. This is Thunder Bay's top ranked spot with good reason. Fun and excellent drinks as well - try the bacon Caesar.
