I have been here a few times now for both lunch and dinner and I am always very pleased and satisfied with each visit. I always recommend the specials, although their menu items are great too but I've never been disappointed with the specials! I love the atmosphere here and usually opt to go when I know it won't be... More

Tiny pub on top of the lane way of Main Street. We have been here a few times after dinner for a nightcap. Always busy. Nice patio in the summer. Not sure if we would eat here it's so small.

I love everything about this place. Servers have always been welcoming and friendly. There is a nice rotating selection of beers which the servers have always been knowledgable about. They keep the menu to a few things that they do really, REALLY well!! All the food has been delicious. I recommend a visit if you are in Bracebridge.

We have just discovered The Griffin after hearing about it for years . From the outside patio to the cozy inside , The Griffin is an excellent stop for lunch , beer and especially the french fries . We have been several times for lunch this summer and highly recommend it to all.

My brother-in-law and I discovered this place up an alley as our wives shopped in the Main Street. The bar tender was very friendly and helpful and we both enjoyed a pint of Muskoka Cream Ale - delicious beer!

After a very long day of driving around from Gravenhurst north to Huntsville as part of the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour(art, sculpture, pottery, jewellery), we stopped in at the Griffin Gastropub in Bracebridge on our way back south. This is a very small pub and kind of hidden off the main street. We did not have reservations and it was... More

We went with family (2 couples and 3 children under 7). Very friendly place. Has that english pub feel but far better food. The food was very well prepared. There is a regular menu and 5-6 specials each night. Beer menu was great.

Thank RayKski
