I enjoyed a lovely meal with a large group. The staff were friendly from the moment you enter this downtown restaurant. Chef David Friessen is well known in Muskoka. Arguably, the most prominent for the past decade. Naturally, the expectations are high. It's a hospital function, so the group is subdued. The beverage options were broad and the wine menu... More

Riverwalk Restaurant is a great location to meet the chef and experience a sophisticated menu based on local produce and other fresh market ingredients. Chef David Friesen and staff are warm and welcoming. Texture and flavour are found in each dish.

My husband and I have never had a bad meal at the Riverwalk. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for here with delicious food, good portions and great service. For a small town fine dining restaurant you always have to be on top on your game- and they are!

We enjoyed an evening of entertainment, food and drink at an event held at their bar section. The staff were well organized and professional. The owner, David, was present to oversee and support the event. The area is spacious and well layed out, especially for larger events requiring more than one area. High ceilings and good acoustics were a bonus.... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary dinner at this restaurant. We had called ahead and asked for a quiet, romantic table as it was an anniversary dibber. We had an early reservation. When we arrived, we were placed 2 feet away from another couple's table. We asked to be moved to another table in the corner and were told it was... More

Bit of an odd entranceway but the restaurant itself is quite beautiful and the food and service excellent. Likely the best fine dining in Bracebridge. Chef cares about ingredients and fresh preparation. Good spot for an occasion.

We were looking for a new place to go for dinner when we came across Riverwalk Restaurant...what a great choice! Why we had never been before is a mystery but we'll definitely be back!
