When my hotel didn't have seating available for their buffet dinner, they recommended the Bala Falls Pub and Pizza. The poutine was delicious and offered a huge portion. The turkey burger I ordered was slightly pink in the middle and despite being served with cranberry sauce, lettuce and tomato, was pretty bland.

The Bala Pub is a faithful local joint with exceptionally well intentioned staff. The service is great, person and well meaning. Having been a faithful and generous patron for many years, I am a little saddened that it has been a disappointed for many of our visits in 2015. In fact, in every visit there has been a meaningful omission... More

we have tried several times at this restaurant hoping for better service and food but that is not the case again. We arrive with a baby and ask for high chair with a response of "its somewhere around here" and we had to find one ourselves. Next with only 1 waitress we had to wait as she had 4 other... More

We attended here for something to eat after not being able to get served at the Bala Bay Inn- it was busy (bc a lot of ppl had left the Bala Bay Inn due to the horrible customer service and had come to the pub) but we were able to get a table at the bar. Our server was friendly,... More

For dinner, the place got crowded really quickly as even though it was a Tuesday, it was high tourist season in Bala/Muskoka. Small and crowded with families that included lots of young children, the place is noisy and hard to move through, even to leave! As others have noted, pizza is good but takes a while.

Not a huge Muskoka-type party pub. Not a hidden gourmet find for the bored hipster crowd. Just a friendly little pub in Bala. We were late, and called asking if they could stay open a while longer. They did so, graciously. We were a group of 9, creating a lot of extra work. Fish and chips were tasty. Burgers were... More

The quick review... small, simple place. Had a couple of beers and a pizza. The pizza took some time but was really good! Service was good... we got our drinks when we needed them and she was very pleasant. Small patio with not a great view (they are on the water but sandwiched between buildings). We weren't in a rush... More

Our party of seven stopped in for lunch here on a drive through town. The decision to dine here was based on previous reviews. It was not extremely busy inside but nonetheless they didn't have enough servers (1) working to deal with the customers. We had to ask where we could sit and then waited for our drink order and...

Perhaps this was an off day, but our experience at the Bala Falls Pub was not impressive. It is very old school in appearance, which is fine, and the rows of old stubby beer bottles is a great touch. However, there is a very limited selection of local beer on tap, and they were out of the Lake of Bays... More
