Dock of the Bay
Great Meal, Great friendly service. Would go back in a heartbeat!
We were celebrating a friends birthday - Thanks, Chef for the Birthday Cake slice! Awesome!
Great fresh food beautifully cooked, tasty and well presented. Excellent friendly service in a beautiful setting. We are repeat customers and highly recommend Dock of the Bay to all.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and overall was amazing! We sat on the patio and our server was great! The food was exceptional!
The service was slow. The food was underwhelming. It was supposed to be a risotto but tasted like prepackaged rice. Too expensive for what it was. The view is nice.
I just tried to wire a review and couldn’t submit it !!
Ambiance and shade: add shade sails vs the umbrellas. Umbrellas are useless unless the sun is overhead. We had a patio seat and no shade- sweat like crazy.
Hint for the staff- offer the wine list again BEFORE the entree comes to the table. The wait staff should know that many people drink wine with steak!! We started with a cocktail and a starter and were not offered drinks again until the steak was on the table. Staff should be encouraged to be more mindful when some entrees are 50+ dollars.
Tables need a little more decor as well.
Absolutely fantastic food, everything we ordered was cooked perfectly.. and delicious.. the wind list was extensive and affordable, the ambiance was perfect, we will definitely come back again.
It is a lovely spot; missed having the spicy pasta of other years. A place we enjoy going to. Anxious to take 2 friends who have not been there.
Entree very good, appetizer and dessert okay. We were asked if it was a special occasion, we answered in the affirmative, Birthday and Anniversary. Better not to ask if it is a special occasion if nothing is recognized. Thought a candle may have been put on the dessert - bring your own candle.
Wonderful venue - especially for an evening dinner date. Clean and great atmosphere with fantastic and accommodating staff. However, the food falls short in terms of flavour and value for what you pay. The portions are well presented but incredibly small and the taste just isn’t there. One notable exception to this would be the tasty crab cakes appetizer
all very good as usual, good food and great view, nice service... no wifi…
Excellent food and service. Very talented staff in the kitchen and on the floor. Every course was excellent, not something that I find common these days. Looking forward to our next visit.
Enjoyed but last night of season and they were out of several things
Excellent menu. Food is very delicious and well presented. Service is friendly and caring. We happened to be there on a very warm evening in October and sat on the lonely patio overlooking Lake Muskoka. Loved it
My fourth visit and the location is awsum and the food has been consistently excellent.
Excellent repas avec vue sur le lac ! Portions généreuses, service attentif. Nous y reviendrons assurément!
Great food, great service and amazing views! I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who's looking for a fine dining experience!
The dinner was fabulous! My parents each had one of the seafood pastas - said the seafood was among the tastiest and freshest they have ever had in a restaurant. I had a striploin steak cooked to perfection as were the vegetables. Presentation was beautiful. The bread served before dinner was warm and fresh and so good. Our only complaint was the service but I think that was isolated to our server as others seemed to be looked after very attentively. I would return to this restaurant!
This place was so good, we went back again the very next day !
We had supper with friends there; our 3rd visit, their first time. And they loved it! We ate inside because it was chilly but will return for outside eating next year.
We have been coming to the Dock on the Bay for 5 years and it keeps getting better! The owners and their family are hard working and as they say, "We just keep learning from our mistakes"
My wife had the seafood chowder...the best ever!
Shrimp and scallop spaghettini was fantastic and my tenderloin steak was cooked to perfection. Service was outstanding by the owner's son.
Congratulations to a hard working family restaurant!
It was our first visit. Excellent food! Our server, Anna, was very patient with my husband. Haha It was a slow, relaxing dinner. Looking forward to our next visit!
Amazing meal but no choices for children
Would recommend to any looking for good food and a muskoka ambience !
This place was outstanding. A true gem in Gravenhurst. Server was so attentive and made sure we were extremely satisfied with everything which we were . Food was absolutely delicious. Made our anniversary that much more special.
Have been going a lot this summer. The owners have done a really good job keeping the service levels high. Busy during the 2 main months of the summer season, so I always made reservations which worked out great !
The serving staff is great, and was especially helpful when I took my dear 87 year old Mom in her walker or wheel chair.
Beautiful views, exceptional service and meal items were outstanding.
Enjoyed a lovely evening in beautiful gravenhurst.
Nice view, first rate service and excellent seafood chowder!
I would give this restaurant 10 stars if it was an option. My husband and I went for dinner on our anniversary, and I can’t say enough good things about this place. The food is up to the best Toronto fine dining standards,
if not better. I had a cream of mushroom and potato soup for an appetizer and my husband had bruschetta bread. Both outstanding! Fresh, flavorful and portions plentiful. We both had orange roughy for the main course, it was one of the specials. We eat a lot of fish and I have to say this was one of the best , if not the best I have ever eaten. Perfectly cooked and spiced! Not salty or over cooked, as it often happens in restaurants.
Desserts were devine! Carrot cheese cake and key lime pie were the ones we tried, and both were great! Even coffe was very tasty.
Besides being a coulinary delight, our server, Brant, made the whole experience even more enjoyable. Friendly, courteous and just a great person. Trying so hard to make sure everyone is happy and taken care of.
And did I mention the sunset? Gorgeous!!
Can’t wait to go back up North and visit this restaurant again.
Beautiful spot on Lake Muskoka. Great view on patio. Food was very good. Service was excellent. My only complaint was the portion size for the price. Much too small, and we skipped appetizers, so I was still hungry after my meal! I caved and got dessert, which was delicious.
Wonderful meal in a beautiful setting. We'll be back.
Loved the salad that came with the fish tacos. And the gelato
Two members of our party had the prime rib, they were very pleased it looked incredible and was a very generous serving. Another member had the salmon though they said the salmon itself was perfect, the rice served with it was sickly sweet and they couldn’t eat it. I had the Veal and Tiger Shrimp with fingerling potatoes. Though both the veal and shrimp were perfectly cooked and delicious, the serving was 3 very small mediation’s of veal with 1 shrimp on each medallion; I could have easily eaten 1 or 2 more of these. The fingerling potatoes of which there were 4 were so small that I would equate them to getting about 8 french fries on a plate. I was finished eating my dinner long before the rest of my party and left the restaurant still hungry.
Magical nightime atmosphere in the outdoor dining area. Food was amazing. We had 10 people ordering different dishes and everyone was happy.
Decent food, terrific atmosphere and view
All our appetizers and meals were delicious. I'm a foodie so I love to take pictures of a beautiful presentation..I posted it on Facebook.
Lovely patio area on the waterfront.
Food was delicious. Service prompt.
This is the third year I have celebrated my birthday there!!! I love the food, the music, the view and the service!! Can't wait till next time!!
Beautiful waterfront patio overlooking muskoka lake. Quiet soft music and fantastic food quality and presentation. Our waiter was amazing! Well done and thank you
Love the ambience, the outdoor dining overlooking Lake Muskoka. Food is great... we enjoy the Caesar salad, the crab cakes, seafood chowder. We did not enjoy the bruschetta bread as it is not toasted enough.... wouldn’t order it again.
Exceptional food! Sitting on the patio overlooking the lake was awesome!
