A town staple- Reliable

Good selection and variety , solid service, hot food. Minimal choices for vegetarians. Gets rather loud - tables close together was only downside. Busy busy busy when it rains!

It is a charming small restaurant, operating on the main street of Bracebridge as a restaurant since 1985, and prior to that a gas station for many years. Hence the name. Don't worry - the gas and oil fumes went long ago. We like the location, the good service and the many choices on the reasonably priced menu. The place... More

Located beside the Library at the top of the hill in downtown Bracebridge, this restaurant left a bit to be desired. The food was nothing exceptional - the chick pea curry did not have any spice and the macaroni and cheese was also tasteless - melted cheese and some tomatoes. The service also left a bit to be desired the... More

We were in town for the day and were looking for somewhere to eat. We went in based on the reviews on here. We were not disappointed!! I had the grilled veggie wrap with a salad, yum!!! My only comment would be maybe a bit more goat cheese...but that is because I LOVE goat cheese! My husband had the beef... More

The Old Station Restaurant serves great food and provides an excellent taste of Muskoka. A true cottage atmosphere with a great patio for fair weather days.

Right in the heart of down (up?) town Bracebridge is this amazing, never fail, restaurant. The food is always amazing, the specials are always spectacular and always out of the ordinary. Patio days are the best, summer drink specials are always impressive. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out! Lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed.
