CLOSED FOR THE SEASON, SEE YOU NEXT MAY LONG WEEKEND!
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.

    Was disappointed they didnt have anything local on the menu. Beef was all American. Expensive for what you were getting. Steak wasn't great. Wouldn't go back.

    It’s always one of our favourite Muskoka restaurants. Their food is always dependable and you can have light fare or a more substantial meal. In the summer their patio is huge and offers a wonderful vista of lake Muskoka and the great steamships that tour the lake. It’s hard to beat the ambiance. If you are a chocolate lover, the glazed chocolate cake is a must have. It can’t be beat.

    Great dinner and service was excellent and the price point is surprising lower than you'd expect t from a restaurant of this quality. In particular, they don't gouge n the wine prices. Our only complaint, we were seated very close to the bar and main entry door and that made for a noisy dinner, especially when the blender was used to make drinks.

    Overall a nice restaurant. Great patio overlooking water. Disappointed with waiter wearing a sweatshirt while others dressed nicely; ok service. Steaks were good, but not outstanding for the price. Appetizers, spring rolls, were excellent.

    The food was fine, but definitely not as upscale as the price would suggest. Pasta was soggy and clumped together, calamari was chewy, the mahi tuna tacos came in a puffy steamed bread which did not go well with the dish. The Boston pizza next door may have better prices for the same quality food.

    I specifically booked this restaurant again as I had an amazing experience last year. It was for a Birthday dinner which I had put in my reservation during booking and also reminded during a phone call. However to my surprise, the waiter not only mentioned this and ruined my surprise and also the writing was wrong. The waiter was also very rude and unprofessional as when I asked them for food recommendation, they were not able to explain what each dish was and was not in proper uniform (the rest of the staff were wearing a white shirt while they were in a hoodie). They also had a very rude tone when I asked them nicely to help us take a picture, and even though I understand that they are busy, they could have spoken to us a bit nicer and explained that they were a bit occupied at this time. Nonetheless, the food was all very delicious and the portions were all good for the value. The restaurant is located at a scenic spot, and I recommend their patio for dinner especially during the fall season on a good day.

    My girlfriend and I personally loved our experience here. We had such an awesome server who went above and beyond! My friend and I shared each dish and she made sure the chef split the meals for us before they came out without us even asking. The food was AMAZING (clam chowder was our favorite) and the view was so lovely outside. We came as a part of a bridal party and separated from the group to let the bachelor‘s have a nice dinner together. They did not have as good of an experience as we did and we were at the same restaurant! They sat inside and had a server who rushed them to order stating that “they should hurry up because food is running out” and they also witnessed an altercation with an irate restaurant guest and the manager of the restaurant. The manager handled the situation well. Besides the rude waiter at their table, they also enjoyed their food and would return.

    I brought 4 of my family travelling here from the uk to dock of the bay. Their 1st time dining here- my second time. Also included dining with us were my daughter and husband- so 7 total. The server was not very friendly. He was short and abrupt in his dialogue with us and essentially dropped items on the table loudly and in a rush. I asked for a 9oz glass of savingnon blanc, he provided a 5 or 6 oz glass. Others at my table ordered 9 oz glasses and received them correctly- this allowed me to compare. At least he billed us for the smaller amount of ounces but it would have been nice had it been as requested. As it got closer to bill time, our server became noticeably nicer and then the owner showed up to chat. It felt a little in-sincere or too late for these niceties. Food was great!

    The setting is fabulous. The food is surprisingly mediocre. Serving sizes are very generous. The strawberry shortcake desert however, is terrific. Service was prompt and attentive. Our waitress was charming. We will definitely return to Dock of the Bay on our next visit to Gravenhurst, however we hope the food gets more flavourful and creative. We just think more attention to detail is needed.

    We were returning to the restaurant for the first time post covid. While it appeared to have changed hands the food quality and service were still very good. One small oops and I note it simply for mgts information - the bread we received was warm on the outside which is always welcome but the centre on a couple of pieces was still frozen. Perhaps the heating time needs to be a bit longer. We will be back.

    The view was absolutely beautiful - especially if you are eating outside! The service was great - our waitress was fast, subtle, friendly and overall efficient. The food was good - my husband had the feature fish which was arctic char with rice and I had the carbonara. Both were delicious. Overall, the restaurant was a bit overpriced in our opinion - the food was good, but not necessarily $100 worth of good. Worth it on occasion for the view though!
