Overall a really good meal, but just good. Not great or amazing, just good. For the prices charged I would have expected a bit better quality of food. But really no complaints.
Good service. Bruschetta was a bit soggy. Pasta was great, the seafood sauce tasted good and large portions. Service was friendly and quite informal. Great view and nice atmosphere. Sitting outside was warm enough with heaters and seemed like a popular spot.
We love eating here. the food is amazing and we really enjoy sitting on the dock enjoying the atmosphere. Service were really great as well. We will be back.
Delicious! Great spot on the boardwalk to eat😊 would definitely recommend!
Good experience, wonderful calamari that I ever tried
I have seldom seen such well presented plates and awesome tasting food!! Well done. Our server was exceptional and I would confidently recommend this restaurant.
Great patio with a great view ,awesome food and service, social distancing included!
Food was great and portions were good. Service was OK.
We had an excellent evening meal while watching the sunset over the water. Beautiful patio! Delicious food, prompt and courteous service, and extensive selection at reasonable prices. We both ordered pasta dishes and were very pleased with the portion size and amount of fresh seafood in both.
A lovely view and delicious food. I’m glad we chose to go there for our 35th anniversary dinner.
Best restaurant in Gravenhurst. Family had the Caesar salad, bruschetta, broccolini soup,steak and salmon. Everything was delicious and good portions. Table by the lake with a beautiful view. Great service. I would go back.
Amazing dinner over looking the water. Everything was perfect.
The best thing this place has going for it is the view. Food was okay but expensive. My grilled calamari was very tough.
Food was very good...we both enjoyed our meals and wine
The food and service was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and heartwarming.
Wonderful evening out with stellar food and service! This restaurant was highly recommended by all the locals and we were not disappointed. Delicious seafood, steak, salads and cocktails! Portions were just right and we left with full bellies and big smiles! Due to the cool and windy weather, we ate inside but had a nice view of the lake. Thank you for a great evening out!
Excellent service, large menus and spacious patioi would definitely recommend to anyone.
Wonderful time as always!!
Reservations are recommended. Great foods, fresh and fun to eat. Service was somewhat slow, and our mains did not come at the same time, which makes dining awkward.
Very great food. Prices were a bit high but the view was amazing so the price wasn’t to huge of a problem
Nicest, most engaged and polite staff ever! Food was excellent but the staff really made our experience! Will definitely return.
A+ nice job Nigel
The restaurant management was well organized to accommodate COVID 19 safety measures. We felt very safe to dine on the terrace. The meal was delicious and service very attentive. Highly recommended restaurant.
Beautiful outdoor water dive setting, great food and service. A bit pricey but worth it. Chef was very accommodating for special diet/allergy requirements.
This is the best restaurant around. A large patio overlooking the water was great and food loved by all.
Very nice view. Good food, excellent service. Would definitely go back!
It was my daughters 18th birthday and we were in Muskoka. My daughter is a real foodie so I chose this restaurant because of the reviews I was not disappointed! The steaks and seafood pasta were incredible. Plus the caesar salad was one of the best we ever tasted. I asked if they could bring my daughters dessert with a candle and they not only did that but also write 18 in red icing on the dish. Ambience overlooking the Muskoka river was amazing and the server was so kind and friendly. 10 out of 10! Thank you for making my daughters birthday dinner so special!!
Great food, great view. Nothing more to say than that.
Recommend you dine here, have to add in the view is amazing.
Loved everything. This restaurant delivers consistently good experience on all aspects, Makes Gravenhurst our preferred summer destination.
My boyfriend and I enjoy the most amazing steak I’ve ever had, while some friends loved the different specials available. The service was amazing very kind and professional. We felt like a million dollars enjoying our dinner on the water
We had a great time with our family. The view is really nice.
Excellent service consider we are late for the reservation
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.
Great dinner. Food was excellent Absolutely wonderful swevice it’s a must if you’re in the area
Gorgeous View! One of our favorite restaurants in Muskoka. Food is always consistent! Wayne & Kay the owners are great hosts!!!
We have been enjoying Dock of the Bay for years. It’s a beautiful lakefront setting, food & service are great and the staff is taking COVID safety very seriously.
Lovely ambience, beautiful presentation to the food. Pricey, but worth the evening on the lake.
Food was awesome the service was great the view and everything was just perfect. Totally recommend going We definitely will go again the next time we’re in Muskoka
Our first dining out experience since the pandemic began in March. We felt safe and the service was very friendly.
