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.

Reservation is available for dinner only.

Always a pleasure dining here. Beautiful patio, great view of sunsets on Lake Muskoka. The wait staff is pleasant, friendly but not intrusive.

Menu is varied and I have eaten here three times this summer and never disappointed. The daily specials are phenomenol.

They have implemented strict Covid protocols and only have patio dining at this time so reservations are highly recommended.

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.

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.
