Red Lion Smokehouse

Red Lion Smokehouse is a barbecue restaurant and smokehouse in Thunder Bay's waterfront district.

If you love great food and good beer, this is the place to enjoy both.The beer list is made up of craft brews from local breweries as well as favourite Canadian, American and British brews.

Food is homemade with fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. Being a smokehouse, the meat is smoked slow and low and then finished in a Josper grill to seal in the flavour and keep the meat moist and tender.

If craft beer isn't your thing, there is a wide selection of wine, spirits, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages including locally roasted coffee, also available.
