Came with a bunch of friends. A variety of orders. I stuck with my favourite The Classic. I haven’t been in a while and was looking forward to the delicious French onion soup and homemade Caesar salad. I was quite dismayed by the significantly smaller...More

Hello! Thank you for your review! Generally speaking, the overall consensus of The Old Station Classic is that it's too big, perhaps a reason why the salad portion might be slightly smaller than what you might be used to. This information gets shared with the...More

The ambience was great and the food was spectacular. Very cozy place that has both enough room for quite a few patrons but also has a small bar area to catch a sports game. Very good setup. Highly recommended.

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!
