The Thunder is a great small town bar and restaurant with affordable prices, nightly specials and friendly service. It's great for families too. I recommend stopping in!

While not the best small town restaurant I have dined at, it was a good meal. Had the all-you-can eat ribs (which was a special) and they were very tasty. Had the cheesy hash browns and they were not to my liking. Service was great and price was ok.

I had heard a lot of really great things about the prime rib special on Saturdays, so two weeks ago, myself, my mom, and my husband decided to drive out there and check it out. They have lots of specials on Saturday nights so you should be able to find something that sounds good. We saw a lot of folks... More

I'm a regular for breakfast. Nothing fantastic but the basics are done well. Lunch is great with my favorites as a dam burger or patty melt with tots. Weekend dinner specials of Walleye or Prime rib are huge favorites with the mostly local crowd. This place seems to pack them in every weekend. This bar/restauraunt is one of the unique... More
