Want a warm welcome, great view, and delicious food? This is the place to go. The Oriental chicken salad was great and the waitstaff wonderful.

“outstanding pickerel dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Short of taking a trip to the Nipissing First Nations where you will obviously get the best pickerel in the province Average Joes is a great alternative! Consistently excellent, I have ordered it several times. Generous portion with a nice light breading and a wonderfully large portion of veggies which is a plus. Also very pleased with the service here. Recently booked the "back room" for a group of 12 and we all got our meals at the same time, and they were all hot and delicious. Kudos to this restaurant for getting it right!!

“A pleasantly located restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

This restaurant is position so as to look out over Trout Lake. The food is of a high quality although slightly on the pricey side. The décor and ambience are good as well as the friendly service. This will be a sort-after summer location for a meal.

“Fun place, nice view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Decent food, good service, overlooking Trout Lake. A bit out of the way, but worth the drive. A nice place for lunch, and also to relax at the end of the work day.
