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!

Awesome view! Great food and service!

Had a great dinner outside on the deck. The menu choices were great with reasonable prices but what makes this place is the location - on the docks with a great view. A wonderful place to eat dinner on a hot summer evening.

This has to be the WORST place I have ever eaten. Firstly family of 5 squeezed into a small table we could barely move, then before we even managed to sit down we're being asked what we wanted to drink by a very pushy server (yes it was busy but attitude was not good) food less than average (FYI who...

Our experience at On The Docks was great. We stopped for a quick beer and snack on the weekend. The server was very friendly, and food was delivered to our table fast. The only thing was that we ordered 4 Muskoka beers and none of them were cold enough. Other than that the food and the view was definitely worth... More

Awesome view of the water and boat docks. Long waits as it is a place that folks like to hangout at, particularly 20 somethings. Service was slow and they forgot an appetizer and drink. They also almost forgot to put anything in the quesadilla, extremely stingy on putting anything in it and it was small considered we were there for... More

Monday night at 7pm and there was a 20 min wait? Is this the way it is in cottage areas? The Waitress made recommendations on appetizers that would arrive the fastest to curb our hunger. The service was excellent and the food was good.

The location is perfect by the lake. Nice environment, friendly staff. If you find a spot downstairs you will be literally on the docks. The food was just okay and took a while to come (I had asked for salad), it's better if you go there just for drinks! They have live music some nights.

We were visiting Huntsville area for a girls trip away. We went to On The Docks because it looked like a great, relaxing view. My friend had called in advance to make a reservation (on a Monday night) but was told we wouldn't need one. We got there and had to wait for a seat inside but were told they'd... More

I didn't expect alot but got more than I was expecting. Good food, great service and priced right. Lovely views of the water only added to the experience. I'll be back.

The food here is phenomenal!!! Just delish! Even the regular pub fare is succulent! The service was pretty good...sometimes a little slow (mostly because servers were chatting with each other and not paying attention to the patrons), but the view, the food, and their CAESARS totally made it worth it.

On The Rocks makes the most of its location by the bridge over the local waterway in central Huntsville, with a three-level bar/terrace. On my visit, I made the most of a warm, July evening, sitting outside on the top terrace, enjoying a fine view of the stream. The pub seems to cater well for those who come just for... More
