We thoroughly enjoyed the view when dining here this evening! More than the view the food was fantastic. Fresh, very tasty and great portions! The service was subdued but friendly. The only challenge we has was with parking. If you're looking for a great meal in North Bay check out Average Joes!

It pains me to write this review because I really wanted to love this place but I didn't. The location is great and the view is beautiful. The atmosphere was relaxing and cosy. The food was not good. I had the pickerel which was dry, bland, and grainy probably because it had been frozen and fast thawed before being deep... More

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and new menue. The service was too notch. This restaurant has a wonderful view of the lake and by far more special to visit than a larger chain restaurant.

This is one of the better family owned businesses in North bay. The food is excellent along with service. If people say it's a bit pricey, well you get what you pay for. Will be going back as often as I can.

Have eaten here a couple times. The last time we were in town for a family event. We showed up for lunch as a group of 11 without reservations. We were promptly sat in a private area with a beautiful view of Trout Lake literally right on the waters edge. During boating season there are docks available so you can... More
