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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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!!

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.
