We were part of a large family party that was accommodated very nicely - including a child and a toddler. The food was good and the servers for our party were friendly and helpful throughout the evening

A relaxed atmosphere with good food and an amazing view. Average Joe's was a great dining experience. Went for lunch on a Sunday. Nice interior, good menu options. Opted for the salmon and salad. Prices were more than reasonable and the variety of options was fantastic to see. The views of the lake were amazing, and great to see boats... More

I have been coming through North Bay ever since I was a child on my way to my grandparents but this time was in town for business.
