Description: 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!

Some of the menu items may looking too fancy for average joes, but they have enough options to cover most tastes. The steak on baggutte was cooked exactly as ordered and excellent cut and flavor. The staff was great and made our meal an enjoyable one. Really happy that the old station was the place we stopped. And will do it again.

We have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed with the service or the food. As we vacation in the area we usually have lunch here when in town. The menu was recently modified but the food remains top notch. Some of the chefs salad creations are inventive and very tasty. We never leave anything on our plates! There is something for everyone on the menu and there are always daily specials. The service is always friendly and warm. And if you don't see what you want then ask the server to check with chef - we have had him/her create something to meet dietary needs. They also have a liquor license! Nothing like a cool cocktail while shopping in town!

As is stated in other reviews the portions are large and well presented. There is definitely value for your money. If sitting indoors there is a large tree that at one time grew right through the roof and is still there. It is quite a conversation piece.

If you elect to sit outside in the nicer weather you can view the main street and all the activity that encompasses a small town. The venue is child friendly and they are welcomed. Washrooms have always been very clean every time we have dined here.

It's worth the time dining here - value for money! You won't go away hungry or disappointed! There is also ample parking on the main or side streets.

Great menu, large servings, delicious taste and presentation, along with friendly, attentive service and priced right. This is what you'll experience at Old Station. We recently enjoyed dinner - 3 of us ordered and devoured their braised lamb shank, 1 ordered the prime rib and left nothing on his plate. Compliments to the chef and wait staff for a wonderful meal in a comfortable setting.

I was told to try this place as it was an old Esso station at one time and they converted it into a restaurant. They have a large variety of menu items you can order and the food is excellent. The portions are large. It is well worth the price. The staff are all very friendly and the place is kept very clean. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Muskoka. Inside the the restaurant, they have photos everywhere showing you what it looked like many years before. Very interesting place to visit.

We came across this restaurant as we were walking from a side street where we parked during a fall festival celebrating the colours of the fall.

The service was very good with the wait staff and kitchen appearing to be well organized. Wait staff were friendly, helpful and efficient-menus came promptly, and the delivery of the food was well timed and paced. The coffe was good and replenished without needed to flag down the staff.
The food was very good for a pub styled restaurant. Salads were fresh and quite tasty. The entrees were well preparedand quite flavourful. The menu has some interesting dishes. Next time we come back we want to try the special chilli-which has some interesting ingredients- e.g. beef, duck and bacon among other things. Those ordering it appeared quite happy with it.
