I really miss 100 Georges! This place attempts to be 100 Georges but it definitely isn't! The staff members are rude and awful. The atmosphere is alright, but a little cramped. The food is awful and they rarely if ever have decent musical acts.

The best meal we had in North Bay, by far. The service was absolutely excellent - our server was on the ball with everything, and was pleasant and very personable. The restaurant is in an older home, and this really contributes to the atmosphere. Everything on their great draft list is priced reasonably, and while we weren't able to stay longer, live music is a regular occurrence.

North Bay's Raven and Republic gastropub could easily best many big-city restaurants. It features microbrews on tap, including the relatively local Lake of Bays (from the nearby Muskoka region).

We shared the cheese plate as a starter and I had the beer-braised Ontario lamb shank as a main. Both were excellent.

Service was friendly and efficient. Decor sophisticated rural gastropub (to coin an expression).

I was in town for a conference and a friend suggested we go to this place for a drink. They have a great selection of micro brewed beers and have nightly drinks specials that are very good as well. The menu of food is not extensive but from what we had, was very tastey and well presented. The atmosphere is cozy and they had a local bad playing the night we were there.

The food at the Raven and Republic has always been great (been 6 times or so). The first few times it was slow, but I think that was because it was/is still new. All of the appetizers that I have had were great, and the entree's are to die for. Sometimes the food takes a bit of time, but what do you expect for quality food made to order (Not just heated).

Beer flights let you try out many of their great on tap beers (You get to pick 6 small glasses to sample).

Go check it out. I know we are going back. (Don't forget to check out the upstairs bar)
