Four of us recently had dinner at the Riverwalk Restaurant in Bracebridge. One couple had been there before, we had not. It was an excellent experience. We liked the feel of the restaurant, the food was all excellent, and the service was great. The setting is interesting - over the water (which you can see if you eat on the... More

Hubby and I are staying in Parry Sound but he knew my favourite restaurant was in Bracebridge so we made the hour Drive back! Worth every minute of the drive!!!

We have been going to the Riverwalk Restaurant for many years now. We have never had a bad experience. The food is sourced locally available and so fresh. The staff is welcoming, attentive and helpful. The chef came and talked with us before we left to get our feedback. The decor is subdued but elegant yet we did not feel... More

My family has thanksgiving dinner here and it was fantastic. The food was delicious, lots of free bread at the table, the atmosphere was intimate and warm. The staff were excellent but the pumpkin bread pudding was the star of the show.

We have had many lovely lunches at Riverwalk and decided to go for our anniversary dinner. We were very disappointed in the food - it was mediocre and certainly not the quality we have experienced in the past. We were seated on the patio 18 inches from another couple while several tables near the falls remained open. However, the servers... More

We live in Toronto and have a cottage in Bracebridge. We love having a world class restuarant so close..... in a way bringing city sophistication to Muskoka. We are "frequent flyers" at the Riverwalk and are never disappointed. The excellent cooking by chef Friesen and assistant chef, the warm friendly staff and the atmosphere are all world class. Highly recommended... More

Took my wife out for a special occasion and found the main dining area closed so we were relegated to the patio. Nice but unkept setting with more dandelions than flowers. The service was just OK and the food was boring and tasteless, so our first trip was our last.

Unfortunately this review is not for my restaurant. I do not have a patio that has green space around it. As you can see by photos posted on tripadvisor our deck is suspended over the water. We have contacted this person and tripadvisor to have it removed. We have never in 15 years ever had the restaurant closed inside and... More

I hired the Riverwalk Restaurant to cater a lunch for a business meeting that I held a while back. I am just reviewing them now, but I still remember their delicious vegetarian curry. An absolutely excellent meal. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. I have never been to their physical location, but if their level of excellence matches their food... More

Riverwalk was our favourite dining spot in Bracebridge. Situated in an old pump house overlooking the scenic falls and Silver Bridge, the interior design and view are outstanding. If you go on a sunny, summer day and sit outside on the small balcony, the atmosphere is beyond any other location in town. Over the years, the menu items have become... More
