Food was very good and big portions. Onion soup was some of the best I’ve had at a restaurant and Brie burger was an interesting choice as well, very cheesy ! Average prices. Very clean bathrooms.

Best roast beef and Yorkshire puddings we have had in Canada! We will be back to sample the other delights. Looking at other plates coming out of the kitchen everything looked outstanding.

Thank you for your review! The prime rib is a favourite menu item, and we are pleased you were able to get your forks on some before we sold out. It’s a hot seller!

Family owned and operated since 1985, The Old Station has a rich history dating back to the 1930’s. Originally an uptown service station, the restaurant boasts original brickwork and front entrance way. At the center of the dining room you will find a unique focal point, our 155 year old maple tree trunk, which invites customers to an enjoyable Muskoka dining experience. Nestled at the top of the hill in downtown Bracebridge, The Old Station provides customers with a chance to immerse themselves in Muskoka’s distinct history. The Old Station offers a quality dining experience in an atmosphere that is purely Muskoka. Enjoy the warm summer days on our wrap around patio or warm yourself by the fire on a cold winter night. Come on in and let us surround you with great food and great service!
