Such good food for great prices!! Matthew was an awesome waiter and made the experience even better. :) The potato skins are loaded up and more than enough to split between 3 or 4 people. The tacos were also very good. We went on taco Tuesday so they were all $3, and the brisket was one of my favourites for sure. 10/10 would come back again if we're ever back in Thunder Bay.

Heard good things about Red Lion so decided to check it out; was neither disappointed nor very satisfied either. The waitstaff was excellent, namely Stephanie who made us feel very welcome and was attentive. The heartbeat taco we ordered was very good, the pasta sauce was flavourful but the pasta itself came out quite cold. The ribs were super dry and lacked flavour. Maybe the kitchen was having an off day? We were there for lunch on a Monday. Seriously contemplating giving it another shot but overall the first experience was very mediocre.

Great food, service and drinks. I would give them a 4.5 because we didn’t win music bingo (kidding!) but a great vibe during trying time’s. Get the deep fried banana peppers, they were delicious

In my experience Red Lion has offered an excellent customer service experience even amidst the pandemic. The beer selection is also impressive. The food however has been consistently mediocre in my opinion and the portion sizes for the price have been disappointing. For lunch/dinner I have never felt like I was getting my money’s worth. Great place for a drink and an appetizer. Not the sit down meal experience I would recommend because your money will go further at The Sov, Thai Kitchen, In Common, etc.

The place is really nice, and the food is amazing for the price. The $3 tacos on taco Tuesdays are amazing especially considering the cheap price. Two people can eat the tacos and have a drink for only $30. They also offer a wide assortment of craft beers.
