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.

...I would've stayed far, far away from this place. I'm genuinely stunned reading the other reviews for this place - perhaps lunch service is great and then come dinner time it all goes sideways? The service really wasn't very good. I have a few specific...More

My sister and I had lunch here 3 weeks ago. We both had the corned beef on naan sandwich with fries. It was a huge sandwich, even by Canadian standards, but so delicious that we had to eat it all! Great service from friendly staff....More

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!
