I have eaten here multiple times....always great food and great service. (lunch/dinner) The English fair is perfect, as are the prices. It is always cold in there in the off season.

Enjoyed high tea in England and various places in Canada. The Blue Willow is the best. I have been known to drive several hours to get there.

We held a private function at The Blue Willow in 2013 and were so impressed we chose the same location for another private function in February 2014. Sue Barrett, the owner of the shop, personally contacts you to discuss menu ideas and the type of set-up you would like. From the moment you enter the restaurant, you can relax with... More

The dockside setting and interior ambience is an ideal place for visitors to Gravenhurst to have lunch. Their service is good as is their food. My favourite sandwich is a bacon and brie. I love their deserts and they have their own internal bakery that you can purchase treats for home. I was not as impressed with their dinners, not... More

This quaint little tea room offers classic teas & bickies, soups and on certain evenings homemade dinners. It rivals any classy english tea room right on the shore of Lake Muskoka

The service is excellent and the staff will suggest the tea that will compliment whatever food(s) you order. There's a quaint gift shop as... More

We visit Gravenhurst often to see friends and relatives, and have commented that we should try the Blue Willow, but only recently did - and discovered what we've been missing! The beautiful location of this cozy restaurant on the wharf gives a great view of the lake (with the Seguin "parked" for the season), and the service and food were... More
