We went with a large family group for a birthday. I like good food and decent portions and I wasn't disappointed. This is Thunder Bay's top ranked spot with good reason. Fun and excellent drinks as well - try the bacon Caesar.

We were married in the morning in June 2016 and we chose Silver Birch to be our lunch venue after the ceremony. The food was out of this world and our extended family still talk about it to this day. Darlene even surprised us with a personalised cake afterwards! It was very touching that she went above and beyond our... More

We had a lovely dinner at this fine little restaurant nestled in the ever-growing culinary area of downtown Port Arthur Thunder Bay. We started with the Pickerel cheeks as an appetizer -- these are delicious - and followed with the fettucini alfredo compete with a pan fried, breaded pickerel fillet. Too full for dessert - but really enjoyed the meal... More

Inviting atmosphere had the pork chops with an awesome blueberry sauce, bannock served on birch bark plate and Smores Creme Brûlée for dessert very yummy. My husband had their back ribs which he loves. Friendly service , did not feel rushed at all. Excellent evening.

Four of us were at The Silver Birch on Friday night. We were all very happy with our meals from start to finish. My fish (Saltimbocca) was tender and flaky, my partner's rabbit was the best he'd ever had, one of our friends had rib-eye steak, which he pronounced delicious (and he's a master at preparing beef), and his partner...

Great atmosphere and great food. I had a delicious arugula salad with pomegranate and tons of walnuts, followed by fish cakes, and finished with the Saskatoon butter tart.

We were in Thunder Bay and this restaurant was recommended by my niece, who lives there. The décor and atmosphere was great. Our hostess was superb. The food and selection was great. Would recommend without hesitation!

The Bacon Maple Caesar is worth the trip on its own. The food was almost without exception, fantastic (although I have had better Pickerel Cheeks). Subtly creative with every one of us (a group of 10) raved about the food, the presentation, and the only slight downside was a probably new server who I don't doubt will get there eventually....
