Muskoka, Honey Harbour, Bala, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, Midland Areas...need help!

I am renting a cottage for a month in August just east of Honey Harbour and I am looking for any and all food recommendations for the areas in the title.
I found very few threads on these areas on Chowhound, so any and all advice would be very greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
For Midland, I can help - the following link is fairly all-inclusive (except for Mad Michael who has his own thread)
All are an hours drive away, and most not worth that amount of effort! But maybe a day trip with Mad Michael for lunch and Explorers Cafe for dinner would work. Reservations essential on weekends - not sure about midweek.
8215 93 Hwy, Wyebridge, ON L0K1E0, CA
For Gravenhurst- nothing
For Port Carling- Rebecca's-
Most places in Muskoka are expensive for what you get but that is due to a short season and making hay while the sun shines.
Choices are limited but if you can put cost/value aside Sherwood Inn is another option.
The Elmvale Fleamarket has been around forever! When I was a kid, they use to auction off livestock and this is the place where I first laid eyes on the cutest baby goat I had ever seen. I raised my arm and started to wave my hand about and to my Mother's dismay, the auctioneer announced that I was the proud owner of the baby goat. She then had to explain to the fellow that we resided in Toronto and NO, we could not take the goat home. I then purchased a baby chick but was forced to take that back as well. Yes, I have fond memories of the EFM. I know it's changed since I was a kid, but today you can find great deals on just about anything from books to antiques, new clothing as well as used "stuff." They also sell fresh, locally grown produce and freshly baked goods.
I really hope you decide to visit. It's a great time, had by all. While you're in the vicinity .... you might like to visit Balm Beach as well. It's very pretty and the traffic isn't as bad as Wasaga Beach which is so commercialized now.
Enjoy your summer! :)
