It was our first day in the city and we took a wrong turn. Are we glad we did. We found not only a motel but a delightful restaurant. We stayed at the Harbour Light Motel located in the same parking lot. We ate breakfast and dinner every day at this restaurant. The food was great, the orders large, and... More

It had a great atmosphere with one section of the restaurant dedicated to special events and activities. That night had Latin dance lessons. Great place to hangout. I had ordered a roast beef dinner. The beef was flavourless and the veggies were soggy. The service was great.

Good food, well pried, but food was a little slow in coming. If you have time and want good food at a reasonable price, then this is the place to go.

Just to set the tone - I am sitting here writing this as my girlfriend is projectile vomiting only 15 minutes removed from our meal at MGM. She ordered the eggs bene. She was complaining of a fish taste which I just laughed about and teased her. I stopped laughing when I poured ketchup out onto a French fry. It... More

Great place to start the day off. Service was fast and efficient. Food was fresh and tasty. We were given 10% off as we stayed in the Harbour View Motel.

The entertainment is geared for an older crowd so it is nice to have a place to go out and have dinner and dance when your 70.They have a good seniors menu which is very affordable and the dancings free. We saw the Drs.... More

I stopped in for a quick lunch on my way out of town. I wish I had been there in the evening, when I saw the dance floor! How lucky is Nanaimo, to have a place where you can have dinner and then dance to live music?! The lunch clientele was predominantly seniors. This isn't fine dining, but better than... More

The food was average -- plain, plentiful, senior portions available and good value -- the service was very good but the dancing was fantastic! Everyone danced --... More
