Tomlin is hands down the best dining experience in Thunder Bay. Our server Brian was so knowledgeable and explained every dish in detail. Their cocktails are amazing, the gin fizz is a must try!

We had the unfortunate experience of dining at the tomlin. They act as if they are a high end establishment in Manhattan, but I have had better food and service at Macdonald’s. With so many good options in Thunder Bay stay away!!!

More of a fine dining place to eat. One side of the restaurant is more of a quieter, intimate area to eat whereas the bar side is a bit more noisier. The meals are fantastic.. so delicious and the staff are super friendly!

The best restaurant in Thunder Bay. It’s got the sophistication, coolness and tastefulness of any top restaurant in the World. Must eat here when in town. Save space for the desserts; they are top of the top.
