Let's get this out of the way now: from the outside, you may not even realize this place exists and if you did, you'd probably think it was a Chinese restaurant given that the old sign is still up. However once you're in you can't help but notice... Everything! It's a charming pub with a lively (and admittedly very loud)... More

Have never had anything to complain about at the Sovereign except that it is usually so busy that you will have to wait for a table. I have had the wings, burger platter and the Spanish pizza, all good 👍. They also have a large selection of craft beer on tap and in bottles.

We came here for lunch on our vacation to Thunder Bay. The best burger we have ever had. We will be coming back just for the burger. Service was also excellent. It was nice to have such a friendly waitress.

The pizza is unreal and there is a serious offering of beer at this place. I would recommend this place if your looking for something a little out of the ordinary.

We ordered a taco salad with flank steak that was really tough, not happy. Also had a chicken sandwich coated in Doritos crumbs that was very tasty and cooked perfectly.

We stopped here on a Friday night around 8:30 and were able to get a table almost right away. The Sov burger and poutin were delicious and very reasonably priced. Also got the local beer and loved it.

Tried to get our group into the Prospector, but they were packed, so a local with us showed us the Sov. Neat, funky little bistro with great foo, great beer, and a lot of fun! We were a large group, and they handled us well... If you're in Thunder Bay ... stop in!!
