On the Docks Pub has been the hot spot for visitors and locals in the Huntsville area for the last 20 years. It is the epitome of Muskoka Cottage life. Relaxed atmosphere by day and summer party central every night! Located in the heart of Huntsville and right on the town dock; it doesn't get more central than this!

Great view of the water, good pub food

Its the place to go if you like to eat by the water. There are three levels open during the summer. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Best item on the menu for me is the baked garlic shrimp.

Waited an hour for nachos they came out cold and soggy, have 80% of the dish back to the waitress and she didn't even ask if the nachos were alright or if there was something wrong with them. Waitress regularly avoided eye contact as she walked by I wanted to ask if the food would take much longer.

Stopped here on a sunny Sunday afternoon to enjoy a drink on the lower patio. Great place to sit and watch the people and boats go by and to watch first time paddlers in their rental canoes. Drink prices are reasonable.

We stopped in for drinks. the drinks were not very strong and the tables are very close together. BUT the view of the water and the new dock was great. Very happy crowd and over all we had fun.

On a weekend away with my girlfriend in Huntsville, this was the first local place we ate at. We certainly weren't disappointed. We ate on the deck, which was enclosed as it was still a little cool out. We had fast service. We had an apple cider I've never had before and it was great. They offer Lake of Bays... More

I've stopped in for drinks a couple of times while in Huntsville. So, while I can't comment on the food, I can say that the service was excellent. The server was attentive, knowledgeable, and looked happy to see us. And from what I saw, the food did look good. Plus, it's right on the water.

Came here for dinner our first night in Huntsville. Even though it is April we decided to sit outside on the heated patio. The view was beautiful! Waitress was very knowledgeable and went through the list of everything on tap. Very prompt with our drinks, taking our order and checking on us. I had the lemon pepper chicken salad. Was... More

We stopped in for dinner one night after creeping trip advisor for recommendations and we were very happy with our experience. It was late September and we were able to sit on the top floor of their patio which overlooks the nice bay/pond area below. The sun had just set and we were eating under the stars that were just...

Just returned from dinner from On The Docks. All I can say is that the food and servers were excellent. Get value for your money. It was very quiet but what do for a Wednesday night in April in Huntsville. I bet it is hopping in the summer months. I highly recommend this restaurant.

It's winter and the place is pretty small but super. The service was fantastic. Just went in for drinks and dessert. Will definitely return for dinner. Must be amazing sitting by the dock in the summer.
