Description: On the Docks Pub has been the hot spot for visitors and locals in the Huntsville area for the last 20 years. It is the epitome of Muskoka Cottage life. Relaxed atmosphere by day and summer party central every night! Located in the heart of Huntsville and right on the town dock; it doesn't get more central than this!

My husband ordered the ribs, BIG MISTAKE. They were cooked with this dry spice which made the ribs very chewy and hard to eat. Not going again.

“Noisy but friendly place”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We had eaten at this place several times before over the years-but, always outside. The weather last week (Friday 12th) was sunny but chilly. So we ate inside. We got good service. The inside part is not large and it was hopping very quickly and this was later Friday afternoon.It seemed to be a combo of after work get togethers,birthdays etc.
Despite the busyness and a lone server, we were served promptly.
The food was good and the atmosphere was not quiet. Everyone was having fun.

“Self serve pub”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This seems like a great spot but have had terrible or no service multiple times from the girls there. The place is small and crammed the girls don't seem like they want to be working and more often than not you have to get their attention to be noticed. When you have to ask for things 3-4 times then still have to go up to the bar I think it's time to hire servers who care to do their job!

“Lovely Location”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Was in Huntsville for Ironman Muskoka and decided to go here after a long day of working the event. Not a lot of seats inside but more than enough outside. We sat inside as we were outside in the sun all day and needed a break from the sun. The food was tastey and the service was good. The portion sizes were ok but the beer was very cold and tastey.

“Pub on the docks”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The setting is perfect with a great view of the water. No fried foods. Everything is baked and delicious. Their soups are great. The Navco Horns are the best. Love visiting this pub.
