Welcome to Moose’s Cookhouse… a.k.a “The Moose” or if you really want to get technical Moose’s Loose Change Lodge!
Like all good things, it all began with an idea… In 1996, when the owner and still the current owner Chris White wanted to create a place that would reflect the beauty of Northern Ontario with a great outdoor adventure.
Since the beginning The Moose has been located in the Heart of Downtown North Bay. Just a stone’s throw from major landmarks, such as C.P. Rail yards, heritage museums, and of course our beautiful Lake Nipissing that is our secret link to history in Canada.
Downtown was the perfect spot to turn a brick building into a Log Cabin, a spot made for the first explorer Jacques Cartier to stop with his team to rest, and enjoy a cold pint of brew and our now FaMoose Chicken Wings and Smokehouse Ribs.
At The Moose we allow you to explore your senses while finishing your work day in our laid back atmosphere. Our friendly staff are sure to make you feel at home, and the aromas of true Canadian cooking will great you at the door. With 120 ways to serve a chicken wing we are sure you will return again and again.
Aside from the outdoors there was another thing Chris was interested in was sports. To this day we dedicate ourselves to the great Canadian Game of Hockey. Every Saturday night starting at 7pm we have all 10 TV’s and 2 Large projector screens showing a true Canadian pastime - Hockey Night in Canada. As the famous song begins on the surround sound, and the lights are turned down we are proud to enjoy such a sport with our families. After all, it is the Gateway to the Great White North.
But hockey isn’t all we show at The Moose. We have been successful with showing the career of other great Canadian athletes like George St.Pierre in the UFC. We show every Pay Per View event and are registered with Canadastar Boxing to bring these shows to you.
So whether it’s a frozen pond, an octagon, a diamond, a court or a field we are sure to be showing The Big Game.
Even if you're not a wing lover, our menu has something for everyone. From giant burgers with Canadian flare to “AAA” steaks, wraps to salads, fish, and soups. We could go on and on, but its best if you checkout our menu and find your own favourites. Although you can’t cook it over an open campfire, the warmth of our cozy booths will ensure you are there.
After a busy day, a long week, a great game or a fantastic show, head downtown to the Moose. We're ready to show you what a Northern Ontario atmosphere and Canadian hospitality are all about. We have a campsite ready for you!
