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 a local dark beer; they had a Sleeping Giant brewery dark on tap...it was called... More

The food was good, the service could use some more training. It was busy when we arrived and the service was good up until the time came to leave. The wait staff do not take your payment for the meals, you have to go to the cash and then you are told so many times you are in the way.... More

I love going to the madhouse. Love the pub atmosphere! Meals are very tasty. They serve delicious soups in the winter and I especially love the steak and goat cheese salad.

Went here for lunch while visiting friends in TBay and had a great lunch. We arrived around 11:30 on a Saturday and by the time finished our lunch and left, the place was packed. There is a sign up that says this may not be fine dining but it's not fast food. That's the best way to describe it! I... More

My boyfriend and I went here for a dinner date and it wasn't really what I expected, but still good. I found the open concept a bit intimidating. The food itself was good, but I don't think I'd go back for dinner. Definitely feels like more of a lunch/night life bar. That being said, I would go at lunch time.

Thank Dlayn
