“Wonderful relaxed dining”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is our go to place for relaxed lunches and dinners. The food is delicious and the service is great. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is on Trout Lake and the view is beautiful.
Parking is a problem but the experience is well worth the effort

“an enjoyable night with my spouse”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We always make a reservation, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings. Jamie is always happy to cater to our needs if we'd like to sit somewhere special.
The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. They have a large selection of wines and can fix us up should we want a cocktail.
The meals are delicious. The portions are plenty. We never have room for dessert unfortunately.
The restaurant has a cozy ambiance in the winter as the patio is closed. The summer is a little more casual if you sit outside.
My wife and I have dinned here dozens of times. We keep coming back for all the reasons above.

“Wonderful view of Trout Lake”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The best part about Average Joe's is that fact that it is situated beside Trout Lake, so almost every seat has a view of the water. I recommend sitting on the patio on a sunny day with a basket of the sweet potato fries and some friends!

“Great Meal”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

My wife had the fish and chips, while I had the sausage and pepper pasta. We were both quite pleased. The service was good, the view quite scenic, and although the building seems somewhat worn in places, it wasn't at all distracting. The men's bathroom could use an update though.

The draft beer selection was limited, and the parking could be bothersome for those less mobile (although not an issue for most people). However, the prices were quite reasonable. We will definitely return when next in North Bay.
