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!

Deck in winter

Loved this place. Went back two days in a row. Felt like you could still enjoy a patio in the winter. Good food. Lots of draft choice.

Travelled through town for the first time and decided to stop for a quick lunch. The sign leading to a mysterious walkway tweaked our interest and here we found this sweet pub buried in the back. We were promptly seated and served by Brigitte who was a sweetheart from start to finish...not to mention she makes a mean Ceasar! Our... More

Yes, you can sit outside overlooking the river. It is well covered and the heating is super efficient. Service is great, warm and friendly, and pop corn is free :-)

Good pub grub for a fair price. Service friendly and quick. Nice location and atmosphere. Daughter had a meltdown upon arrival and we appreciated the staff's non-judge mentalness.

Every time my in laws are in town we come here for dinner or a lunch. It's such a great atmosphere, and right on the water just makes the experience. Servers are always fast and friendly and the food is really good. Only thing I would wish different would be the side of the "nachos". It would be nice if... More

I stopped in here en route back home from North Bay. It's a very cosy spot with a lovely view. The staff was excellent with very precise and somewhat picky salad and soup order... French onion (and I consider myself a French onion expert) was divine w a very rich wine base (I think!!), salad was fresh and well presented.... More

Okay run of the mill pub with a reasonable pub-food menu. It won't set the world alight, but the location is excellent, with good views over the water.

Had lunch here just before the local crowd invading the place. We had the club wrap and a chimichanga and we both had the soup of the day which was a twist on tomato that was good. The standout was the size of the soup which my partner couldn't finish along with the chimichanga. The waitress is truly seasoned to... More
