Steakhouse
Born out of our love of fine wines and delicious food, Dock of the Bay - Gravenhurst has become the premiere location for casual dining in Muskoka. After traveling the world and sampling different cuisines, we decided to make our way back home and bring the world to us. Chef Darren serves gourmet meals prepared with only the freshest produce. We ensure the quality of our dishes with the quality of our ingredients. Our biggest challenge was finding the right, high-quality ingredients for the dishes we wanted to serve. We are dedicated to offering only the finest and freshest foods. We have also taken great care in assembling a team of only the best chefs, experienced kitchen and servers.

The food was great. The service was very good. The deck is over the water looking out on the bay in lake Muskoka. Great place to eat on a Friday evening in the summer.

The food is good but a bit pricey for what you get. It is beautifully presented but lacks exciting flavors and creativity. Very basic pasta in rose sauce, seafood pasta. Steaks are delicious if you're looking to treat yourself. The service is excellent. The entire team is friendly and knowledgeable. With COVID they aren't serving water...you have to buy a bottle of water which at that price they should just give you. Not too sure what COVID has to do with not serving tap water either - we ate at several different restaurants and all served tap water. Over all I would recommend a visit for the great view, good wine and excellent inviting service. The apps are delicious and worth buying a few and skipping the mains.

Chicken was as dry as a bone...
Salmon was mediocre...felt that spring rolls do not match anything on the plate.
Overall...mediocre at best!!!

The patio at Dock of the Bay is very pretty overlooking the Muskoka Wharf. The staff was very accomodating and attentive without being very noticeable. The food is always delicious and presented beautifully. Only one small criticism, for the price, the lamb chops should have been the rib chops and not the loin chops, although they were very tender, and seasoned perfectly.

Service needs some attention. Appetizers arrived way before our initial cocktails. I think that they were trying to rush people out. Waiter forgot several instructions. Had to always follow with him. At the prices charged, I expect way more!

Beautiful view aside, the hosts were very welcoming and attentive. The dinner suggestions were appreciated and the food was delectable. The prices were on point. Very easy to see why dock of the bay has been in business for as long as it has.

Patio was only open due to Covid. Very clean, our waiter was wearing a mask at all times, they were cleaning continously when people left. Felt safe.
Food was good, my Pickerel tacos good, found the fish a bit over done, wish there was a bigger piece, fries great. My husband's meal Texan smoked brisket very good, huge.
Found it a bit over priced.

Our 1st Course was delicious- grilled squid
Leak and potato soup and fish chowder was excellent.
The fish tacos were excellent
I had the open face beef sandwich- it was brunch and string like. The person clearing the table asked why I only ate 1/4 of it - I told him - he was apologetic and said he would tell the kitchen. When our waiter came by to ask us I told him the same thing - he said I will get the bill. He brought it we paid he didn’t even say anything not even thank you. I don’t think I would ever order the beef again. But the grilled squid was to die for!
