MGM Restaurant advertises in bold letters on the front of the restaurant that they server "Gourmet Burgers".... this is a an outrageous lie and false advertising. The burger has a standard non-yeast commercial bun with a frozen style hamburger patty and standard pink burger sauce. A&W mama burger is better that this thing. I choked it down and then got...

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.

We are forced to get a dirty table. 00:15 - Server cleans the table and brings the menu (Yes! after 15 minutes of waiting) 00:30 - Server comes to take the order. (It was not rush hour and the place was not 1/2 full, still took... More

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.
