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 location - Great View

We were at an event in the River Mill Park and were enticed into the Pub by their posted menu. This place is very popular! Food and service took awhile, but it was great to just wait and take in the atmosphere. Menu has a nice variety of bar type of food and healthy choices. The grilled veggie... read more

Food was good. I enjoyed the pub pasta, my wife enjoyed the pub burger. Food was great, a little small inside, but it was enjoyable. Nothing special but nothing negative either

We went to "On The Docks Pub" for lunch and had a good experience. The food was quick and the service was absolutely fantastic. We started off with the Nav.Co Horns, which were spicy and delicious! My boyfriend had the Oriental Steak Salad, which was perfect. I had the chicken club with the soup of the day (cream of broccoli).... More

This is our go-to celebratory restaurant after completing a multi-day canoe/portage trip in Algonquin Park. The service is friendly and the location is perfect to have that first cold drink in days. Fun, friendly vibe to welcome us back to civilization. We look forward to continuing the tradition year after year!

Nice atmosphere. Our server was wonderful. Bruschetta was the worst I've ever had with soggy bread and too much oregano. No fries with the burgers, only chips. The burger was fresh and good, just right for me but my husband found it too small.

I was in town for business and stopped by for an early evening meal. The place was already packed down by the docks and the upper restaurant area was full as well. I just sat by the bar as I only wanted a quick meal. They have a nice selection of draft beers. I tried a few locals. For my... More

As its name suggests, On the Docks is right beside the river. The restaurant is spread over several levels with great views over the river. On the Docks has good beer, featuring beers from local craft brewers Lake of Bays and Muskoka on tap. The service is good; the staff are cheerful and prompt. Where the restaurant falls short is...

A causal friendly atmosphere right beside the water's edge. Great food and beer with wonderful service - thank you to Claire for the Muskoka hospitality!

We had the kids canoeing in the river and we went for lunch. We sat on the second level and the view was great. The staff was good, but the food was so, so. We ordered wings and got M & M wings with BBQ sauce on the side.
