We went to Average Joe’s for dinner. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our 1 year old. We enjoyed the views out over Trout Lake, especially as there was heavy rain and lighting. Most of our party ordered the special which was a pan-seared arctic char with a smoked salmon risotto and a side of vegetables. My pet... More

Shared a meal with family this past weekend. A reservation had been made, so no waiting at the full restaurant. Though a Saturday night in August, there was no lineup which suited us fine. Decor is simple, but one doesn't want to compete with the stunning lake view anyway. We sat inside and though rather close together, one didn't feel... More

We visited this restaurant on the advice of the staff in our hotel lobby, and she was bang on! 3 of us ordered Haddock & Chips and one ordered the special, which was a Rib Eye with Cheddar Mashed Potatoes. The servers were very friendly and helpful, the food came out hot and timely, and very tasty! We had a... More

My friends and I went to this waterfront restaurant and were very pleased with the food and the service. The wine list is also very good. Try the pickerel dinner. I loved it. My friend had pasta and also loved it while my granddaughter had the crab stuffed shrimp and it too was great.

The view is very nice and the service is great. The food is also very good. The only thing that could improve is the decoration.

We were fortunate enough to get in to this fully packed lakeside restaurant on a Friday night. After waiting for about 20 minutes we were escorted to the indoor section of the restaurant with a lovely view of Trout Lake with pretty boats bobbing in the harbour. The service was prompt and the menu offered everything from burgers, prime rib... More

This restaurant has a great setting on the shore of Lake Nipissing in North Bay - windows all along the lake side as well as an outdoor deck. The evening we were there the special was Prime Rib - which they apparently are known for - we all ordered that. Thinking we might need an appetizer we had mussells -... More

A had a business lunch there a couple of summers ago and was cut off from a third cocktail. I had long meeting, had a full lunch and wasn't driving. The owner told the waitress to cut me off then left. I wrote him a letter expressing my concerns and frankly my embarrassment and didn't get a response. I've told... More
