Disappointed

we love this restaurant...but sometimes they lack imagination! My friend and I ordered the fish special and when we received it...it looked very unappealing! The bed of boring white rice was hard and not very hot...the fish was over cooked and tasteless! Side of stringy hard brocollini! My... read more

You can't beat a visit to the Old Station Restaurant on a Friday night (or any night for that matter). Always great food, terrific service and a fun atmosphere!

While the menu is predominately pub fare, the quality of the food and the preparation of the dishes make this a place of return visits. Good sized portions and attentive service. Good value. Check it out when visiting the Muskoka area of Ontario

We are even more delighted due to the fact that Crabby Joes was too busy for us. We took recommendation from TripAdvisor and it was bang on. The food was bang-on (great selection both from the menu as well as the daily specials) Their desserts were all homemade. The service was great !! We will definitely be back if we... More

Bracebridge can be pretty quiet in winter, with many businesses shuttered until tourists come back in summer. The Old Station Restaurant serves a wide range of dishes, from wings to gourmet at several price points. I really enjoyed the lamb stew over mashed potatoes....perfect for a winter evening. Service was more than pleasant, and the fire too.

We had a big family 'reunion' type of thing in Bracebridge over New Years. We went here for lunch on New Year's eve day. They actually took a reservation for 15 people & we were all in one long table (which was great). You never know about service when you have a big group like that, but it was excellent.... More

Came here with a few coworkers for lunch and both the food & service were excellent. Our server didn't write our orders down so a few things were mixed up when the food came, but it was quickly rectified. Overall very nice place and worth a stop.

Went to the Old Station yesterday for lunch. This restaurant had been recommended by a number of different people, so we decided to give it a try - and are we glad we did! The soup of the day was an excellent beef vegetable - huge chunks of both the meat and veg in a very flavourful stock. Not over... More

When he went to order and also mentioned that he had celiac the waitress informed us the both wings and sweet potatoe fries are deep fried in the same vat as all the... More

Food and service is just great at the Old Station Restaurant. Old photos on the walls are great salute to the Town. Just a fun place to go.
