When arriving in town, this is one of the first stops for something interesting and amazing to eat. The menu has choices for everyone and it is the kind of place you want to come back to. I love the fish and chips there as well.

I went for my birthday with two friends. Food and service was great. This restaurant has now become Pub style. I haven't tried it yet, since the change. This establishment also cater's the Seguin and the food on the boat is always good. We take the Seguin in September for our Anniversary.

We had heard good things about North for a while, but never got there until last night. Both the food and the service were excellent. This restaurant stands head and shoulders above anything else around. And it was full, they were turning people away, which is the last thing you expect to see this late in the season, I guess others have also figured out what a great spot this is.

Visited this restaurant with my husband and his parents. The appetizers were pretty good but the main courses were FANTASTIC! I had the sea bass and it was the best fish dish I have ever had. My husband had the chicken supreme and my father-in-law had the veal. We all loved our meals. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice atmosphere with great food.

This place is a little deceptive from the outside, but the amazing food inside is well worth a wait. Service was prompt and pleasant and our waitress was most helpful with the menu items. There was a wide variety of foods and when the appetizers came, the presentation was most appealing. Wine choices on the menu were varied and plentiful. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. I definitely will go back again.

Introduced to the "Back Door, Fish with Chips" this past summer. At first I thought the price was on the high side but ..after seeing the portions quickly changed my mind! We had the halibut with chips. The portion of halibut is very large and very "meaty" as is the norm for good halibut. It was perfectly prepared, lightly battered and piping hot. Generous portion of fries. A great easy dinner to pick up after a long drive or an impromptu dinner with local friends. Can't wait to try the restaurant!

Had a wonderful dinner at your restaurant our last night in Gravenhurst . My husband had the elk. I had the blackened cod special. Both were wonderful! Of course we saved room for dessert! The pumpkin creme brûlée was the incredible. Our waitress was just a sweetheart. Thanks for making our last evening just perfect.

'Rustic Chic'
North Restaurant in Gravenhurst is one of only a handful of Muskoka restaurants that has very good food. We’ve eaten there twice and enjoyed our experience both times. Homemade soups, “Back Door” fish and chips, grilled meats are all well prepared and tasty. We discovered a delightful New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, Astrolabe, from their well-chosen wine list. (We’ve since bought several cases of Astrolabe for consumption at home, finding it a great summer wine). The restaurant setting is chic rustic (if there is such a thing). The prices may be a tad high but by my calculation dining there is still very good value.

I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for a great evening at North. All in my party raved about the food – scallops, elk and fish & chips were big hits – and the great service we received, including letting us hang around a little later. So well done chef, house and staff! I’ll be certain to give North a recommendation to anyone looking for a great meal in the area, and hope to be back myself before the winter sets in. Thanks again.

Robbie, your catering team/chef team/bartendar team were fabulous. I thank you for that long but productive first meeting we had at the Segwun office. That really started us off but what that did for me was reinforce that I was part of a team that was dedicated, creative and really fun to work with. That instilled such confidence in me to move forward and not worry because I knew I was in such good hands. As I said above, I was concerned about the tie in with the ship representing you but I have to say that it really was seamless..........you are great partners and I felt like I always got the answers I needed as we built the ideas and the budget that goes with it ! It was a pleasure to work with you and Bryn represented you in the highest style. She is another gem and she is such a professional with a ton of experience that shows........and from me, that is huge !! People just loved the food and told us how much they loved it. From the oysters, to the endive leaves, to the ceviche, soup shooters, shrimp, salads and our cottage fare. It was all to die for. It was so different and well presented and funky just as we wanted it. And those s'mores !!!! Everyone was blown away by them. It was all so well done Robbie and really scumpious !!! Thank you to Wanetta and Andrew, our bartendars on the land. They were so hands on. They totally took over and insisted on helping with everything as they arrived and they worked really hard setting up. As one point one of our brothers went early over to get something on his own from the bar (maybe around 4:00) and the bartendars insisted that they would get the drink for him......they said that he was a guest and they were there to look after him no matter what time. How impressive is that ?? They worked hard and were so great to have with us even if they were assigned to the rainy land ! It was fabulous to have them there for those hardy souls that ventured off the ship.......it was amazing to let guests have a choice. They did such a great job and were a lot of fun. Bryn...........Again, where do I begin to thank you and recognize you for all your hard work with the food and beverage ? You were incredible and I think the thing that strikes me the most is that you always tried to execute what you knew I wanted. You knew what needed to be done, you always touched base with me, advised me your opinion and thoughts then listened to mine and together we came up with what would work for the food and beverage. I always knew if you needed to make a decision that you would take into account what was important to me, then make it work as you knew you could do it. You did n't miss a thing in the details. Your timing and execution was flawless. You, Christi and Connie were quite the team. In the middle of our weather decisions both the week of and the day of.......you worried so much about the food being outside and even as I staunchly expressed that I wanted to keep it outside if we possibly could.......I truthfully knew that you would do that if there had been one shadow of a possibility even though I know you were reallly not comfortable with how close I pushed it and you had the chefs to answer to ! I always felt that you pushed it a bit more to deliver as best you could for me. For that I thank you. I was so impressed that the minute Dan and I set foot on the ship, after being drenched and finishing our receiving line, there you were standing with two plates of food for us and you almost followed us to make sure we ate. Who does that ? How very kind and thoughtful. And those s'mores and s'more martinis ! Well, they were the talk of the night and you just kept them coming............there always seemed to be a martini in my hand !!! I think you did that !! The other thing that blew me away was that someone actually took the time to go off the ship and bring in some of my decor items to add to your food stations (you, Christi, Connie ??). Again, that attention to detail is exceptional.......you knew how hard we had worked to create our food station decor and how much the atmosphere meant to us to not just have a normal boring buffet but one that lent itself to the history of the island. You added that magic to the food on board and it was incredible. The little flower pots with the chalk labels were brilliant, my butter boxes, old wood planks and all the touches were so great on board. It really made it work. People raved about the food ........just raved. The creative ambiance just added to that experience. Thank you Bryn for all that I saw and all that I didn't.

Dear Robbie and Alain Irvine, It's been almost a month since our Muskoka family reunion which you catered for the second year in a row. We would all like to thank you for the wonderful meals you provided for us. As always they were delicious and beautifully presented. We would especially like to commend Bryn Allison for all her tireless work and courteous professionalism. She is a real credit to your organization. We also dealt with Robbie and were equally impressed with her high quality of character and professionalism. We would like to single them out for their high standards of excellence and caring. Thank you so much for looking after us again. We look forward to calling upon you the next time we are fortunate enough to have another reunion.

We have been to several restaurants in the Gravenhurst area. North is a 10 out of 10. Food, service and atmosphere is fantastic. North can compete against any fine dining restaurant in Toronto. The menu has a variety of choices with innovative ingredients. The atmosphere is casual but classy and warm. The staff are friendly and informative.

July 4; 5:00 pm; drive through Gravenhurst to find a restaurant; saw the Seguin docked for the day; the engineer recommended North; we found it and also found they had a cancellation; we ordered halibut fish and chips and a steak rare; thickest, most succulent fish ever with a crisp, thin remarkable batter; steak perfectly presented with gourmet garlic basil butter and superb mushrooms that startled my taste buds awake. The service was exemplary, bright and quick. Our granddaughter, usually a fussy eater, polished off her fish and part of my steak. It will take a 4 hour drive to get back to North again, but we will......trust me. North is great. Ron and Barb, Kimberley, ON

Holly Matrimony - Wedding and Event Planner
On the weekend, I was invited after the ceremony by a SUPER INCREDIBLE couple to dine with them and get to know their immediate family at NORTH West on Lake Muskoka. Located about 10km out Hwy 169 from Gravenhurst, ON, it is a boathouse type building located at Pride West Marina. We took the boat over, parked and went inside to see our table. Robbie, the owner, went the extra mile for our mutual clients and dressed our tables with a few gorgeous floral arrangements! They were so happy! Service was great, Menu had something for everyone, and too many choices for my hungry eyes! Thought I would share our experience with photos and captions as you see here! Great place to celebrate or just escape for a nice night/afternoon out by boat or car. Now to check out NORTH in Gravenhurst! They did an excellent job catering this wedding on The Wenonah. My clients were THRILLED. I rarely eat at weddings because I don’t like sitting while working but I MADE time to sit and eat here. The Groom was so full that when talking about what they wanted for dinner today when I dropped off their wedding stuff, he rubbed his tummy and said he couldn’t even think of eating he was still full from yesterday! HA! Go check them out! Thanks Robbie! Your team (including the ships staff) were incredible. I hope everyone enjoys these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them! www.hollymatrimony.ca

I went for dinner with my wife on the 19th of May, and I must say I was thoroughly impressed. I was hesitant at first to go due to the fact it was extremely busy (considering it was the saturday of the May 24 weekend), but the staff seemed very capable of handling the volume. The service was very smooth, the servers extremely polite and friendly, with a very enjoyable atmosphere. We had the crab salad and the beet carpaccio salad to start, very appetizing! They did not leave us overly stuffed, but had us really looking forward to our mains. For mains my wife had the sea bass and I had the bison steak, the only thing I can say is outstanding! The meat was cooked beautifully and was perfectly tender, and my wife had the same things to say about the fish. Very well done North, I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Gravenhurst area. We will be back.

Fodor's Travel Guide
Since opening in 2007, North, located in the centre of Gravenhurst, has been praised as one of the best restaurants in Muskoka serving hearty Canadian fare making good use of local game and produce. The menu changes seasonally, but has featured pan-roasted wild boar chop with blueberry-port wine reduction and poached sable fish in a pickled ginger and champagne cream sauce. The small dining room, with high backed dark leather chairs and white table clothes paired with rustic-looking pine stained floors has a metropolitan-edged, farm-to-table chic. Despite its being one of the classiest establishments in town, the atmosphere is relaxed and the service friendly and approachable.

Bay Street Bull Magazine
After opening up their successful North Restaurant in Gravenhurst in 2007, neither Alain or Robbie Irvine could have dreamt that within just a few short years their business would have more than an IPod. Today North has expanded to include a high-end fish and chip shop (The Back Door Fish with Chips), serves the town's best breakfast, provides catering services to the nearby Marriott Residence Inn, prepares lunches and dinners for the steamship RMS Segwun and her sister ship the Wenonah II and offers in-cottage cooking, catering and menu consultation services, including theatre style cooking events. One of the family's favourite spin-offs is to provide food to the numerous private jets using the busy Muskoka Airport. After dining at North it's not hard to see why the Irvines have done so well. Their evening menu is a mix of the downright delicious (roasted fresh Quebec chicken supreme), the classy (braised lamb shanks) and the unexpected (pan seared ostrich in a Canadian port reduction). Topping it all are feature Market Menus that showcase local farmer's market produce including such delights as Grenville Farms' fresh pea soup with mint foam and parmesan chips, followed by pan sauteed Milford Bay trout, carrot sauce with lime and basil and rounded off with Muskoka rhubarb and strawberry flan with Tahitian vanilla ice cream.

Yes, absolutely North is the best restaurant in town. The food is eclectic, creative, with an emphasis on local sourcing. The wine list is a bit limited, but some decent bottles there. Be warned though, you will be paying Toronto prices, this is superb dining and you have to expect to pay for that.

We visited Taboo at the end of July and heard about your restaurant from one of the staff members. Although it was lunch, the Chef prepared us the lamb dinner dish. It was remarkable. The Chef even came to our table. A special thanks to our server Katarina from Germany.

Just wanted to send a quick note before we left for Greece to let you know how much we appreciated absolutely everything you did for us. I know there must have been tons of work behind the scenes, but you never waivered and never let the stress show. You helped make our dream wedding come true and for that we are eternally grateful. I also wanted to let you know that we received a lot of praise for your servers. All of our guests were blown away by their professionalism and poise.

My admiration for your abilities has soared and the pleasure I feel in thanking you for your exceptional dedication should exceed by far any pleasure you derived from giving it. You are a credit to your profession. It was a pleasure working with you and your crew, and I look forward to the next opportunity.

Sending you a great big thank you for everything. We had a wonderful time on the Wenonah on Saturday and appreciate all you did for us. The cruise was beautiful and Karen and the rest of your colleagues were absolutely amazing. We had so many compliments on everything - the cruise, the food, the service, so thank you, thank you and thank you.

After A LOT of difficulty narrowing down my dinner choice from the menu, I decided on the New York Striploin with prawns and Caesar salad! I am totally checking out The Back Door in Gravenhurst though for those 'award winning fish n' chips' on the menu. I wanted to eat all of it!
