In town for a relative's bday. We asked around and was told we would be happy choosing Average Joe's. We were not disappointed. Our server was super nice and attentive. The food was created by someone who cares and pays attention to detail. The pepperoni on the kid's pizza was high quality. The risotto rich and creamy. The ribs falling... More

We were not familiar with the area and staying a few minutes up the road, Average Joes was recommended at the motel where we were. It was Friday evening and the place was really busy. We didn't have a reservation but were told "don't worry I'm not going to send you away, we'll find a spot for you". Within a... More

This restaurant sits directly on Trout Lake in North Bay, Ontario. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but when you get inside it feels like being in a lake front cottage. We went for lunch and chose to sit inside at a table directly in front of a huge picture window overlooking Trout Lake. The scenery was beautiful.... More

Business friends recommended the restaurant as top local owned and run location. Windy, chilly day prevented us and other patrons from outside dining (what a view!) and it was very busy inside. We waited for a few minutes prior to being seated. The lake view from the inside is nice too. The wait staff did their best to serve patrons... More

It was a pleasant surprice to visit Average Joe's...the view is fantastic, right by Trout Lake. Food was plentiful...took half home for another meal...service was good with a smile. At luch the restaurant was almost full with people and some on the padio... I will go back and sample more food at this restaurant.

Girl friend and I had lunch today at Average Joes over looking the Trout Lake. Service was excellent and had the beef deep. Only thing need to recommend to kitchen Beef Dip is not usually served on a hamburger bun. Tends to get soggy and fall apart.

And I know this is probably pettyl to some, but it irks me that when I ordered my veggie burger, it came with only lettuce and tomato on it - no sauce or condiment,... More

Rude, argumentative and pretentious servers. My daughter ordered a steak rare, when it came it was pink in the center. They tried to tell us that, that was the way it should be be served. We asked them to take it back and to cook her a new one. They did in a very rude and horrible way (they literately... More

Décor inside could be updated but lake view is great. Service and food was quite good however the table beside us was very loud and put a damper on the evening. Would definitely go back. Dan
