Where else you can eat and learn to dance?

Went there one late evening looking for some food basically and to my surprise, there was not only food -which was good by the way- but also there were some nice Filipino ladies teaching dance classes, which was entertaining to watch. The place is big and the food is varied and not bad.

This restaurant has a nice variety of breakfast, lunch, and dinner on their menu, and also have a Seniors Menu. Prices were very reasonable, as they also included salad or soup and desert. A bonus at this restaurant is that they have a lovely dance floor and have live entertainment 5 nights a week. Would definitely go there again.

Please take my advice, and stay away from this place. I'm not a hard critique when it comes to food, but lord have mercy this place is disgusting. Service was below average with a 20 min wait time for our food and then the waitress proceeds to give us a bottle of AUNT JEMIMA butter flavored liquid sugar for our... More

We had dinner tonight at the MGM in a large group of family members. The food was better than expected after reading reviews. I had a reuben with fries and gravy. YUM! My son enjoyed his lasagna and jello. My picky daughter devoured her kids chicken nuggets with cucumber slices (she doesn't like the standard fries). The strawberry milk shake... More

My wife enjoy the atmospere of the MGM with the live music and access to a dance floor plus the good food. We have spent many a meal relaxing with our guests visiting us in the friendly surroundings. We can attest to the reasonable rates and pleasant service we continue to visit MGM.

Ok, MGM doesn't and won't pretend to be a real FANCY restaurant. But for us Seniors, all we want is great service, reasonable prices and delicious Senior Menu Selections! It's that simple really! With the high cost of living, eating out now is really a privilege that the average Senior can barely afford. We are grateful to the management and... More

Picked this because it is next door to the motel. Fook good, service so slow that we abbreviated our order when he finally showed up. Too bad, because otherwise it looked like a good place.

Great all-day restaurant catering for most tastes. Have experienced breakfasts, lunches and dinners over several years, all good. Saturday nights with a live group are a special favourite; see link above and main website. Gets busy so reservations suggested!

I took my daughter out for dinner. The MGM was close to my motel and her home. I was looking at the Seniors menu and asked about the fish and chips. The waitress said that it was 2 large pieces of fish and chips. My daughter and I shared and we were both satisfied. The portion size was very generous.

Without a doubt, the best liver and onions I have ever eaten! As a Senior, I receive a great meal, including soup or salad, main entrée, dessert and coffee for $12.05 incl. tax! You can't beat it. The menu here is comprehensive and varied. I have never had a bad meal here and have been eating here on my visits... More
