Have never had a bad meal here yet. Parking can be difficult but the view on the lake is beautiful. Salads are delicious. Honestly have been more then happy every time we go.

Meal was very good - six choices but almost everyone had the prime rib. Only complaint is that it was a little... More

I am rarely in North Bay, but I guarantee the next time I'm in the area I will be visiting Average Joe's again. As others have side, if I was referred to this restaurant I would have driven right on by! It's exterior decor gives a bit of a shady atmosphere, but as soon as we opened the door we... More

I was traveling for business with my boss, an elderly senior executive in a large organization with fairly discerning taste. Since we were there during dinner hour, I asked a colleague from North Bay where we should have dinner while here. She suggested the Average Joe’s, a restaurant I would have never found, nor would I have stopped if I... More

The combination of food quality and price is just about unbeatable. The view over Trout Lake is beautiful during every season - even when the weather is not great. The service is top drawer. Highly recommended

We visited Average Joes as a group of 8 to celebrate a birthday on a Sunday evening. Serving a group that size is challenging for the best teams, but this particular group also had a very picky guest in the guest of honour them self. What impressed me most about how the Average Joes team handled this tricky customer was... More

When I went the lake was still frozen but even then it was a nice view for the restaurant. The place had quality food and great service. I would visit again.
