BIG Taste in North Bay

Locally Owned Restaurants Dishing out Delicious Meals

Whether you're visiting North Bay for a tournament at the Steve Omischl Sports Complex, or for a relaxing vacation - you're going to want to eat.
What better way to eat, than at a locally owned North Bay restaurant? Many of the independently owned restaurants in the area use locally sourced ingredients, and add their in-house flair to evey meal.
We spoke to Sean Feretycki, a local food lover, to get the scoop on the best locally owned restaurants to try in North Bay. Here are some of his candid recommendations: 

Quick, Casual & To-Go

gd2go (pictured above)- Everything is made in-house, with locally sourced ingredients. Full menu of healthy choices, lots of gluten-free options, amazing smoothies, and great coffee.
The Cedar Tree - Nice mix of lebanese food including shawarma, donair, spinach pie, and of course garlic sauce. Roger, the owner, always takes time to say hello.
Greco's on Algonquin - Arguably the best pizza in town. Lots of toppings, soft crust, perfectly cooked. Good pasta and subs too. Try the Italian Sausage Sub.
Urban Cafe - It's basically soups, sandwiches and salads, but done right. Soups, classic sandwiches, and creative twists on the sandwich are made in-house.
Tiny Italy - Italian classics, great coffee, and amazing gelato that you can grab and go or enjoy on their street patio!

Sit Down & Savour

North Bay - Restaurant - Kabuki
Kabuki House (pictured above) - You'll love the atmosphere, seeing the chef cooking right in front of you, and the Orage Roughy is spectacular. So buttery, soft and tender. 
Churchill's - This is an elegant experience with great food, and extensive wine and scotch lists.
White Owl Bistro - It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you're inside, it truly delivers. The owners work with local farmers to source the best ingredients.
Dave's Green Papaya - Delicious thai, and chinese food in a new location that's great for gathering.

Pints & Pub Fare

Raven and Republic (pictured above) - They have a strong locally sourced menu, with one of the most unique rolling beer lists in town. They bring in a great mix of local & craft beer.
Average Joe's - The nicest patio in town, and you're right on Trout Lake, with a gorgeous view. Delaney Bay Cheese Market is right next door, and worth checking out too.
The Moose - Best place for beer, wings & sports. Great if you're looking to catch a hockey game.
And, if you're in North Bay on a Saturday this summer, stop by the North Bay Farmers Market for some truly local fare!
