What a huge disappointment. We waited 1 hour for a table for 6. Nachos were great. The steak was great. The ribs were great? 3 of us at the table ordered fish & chips. So very soggy, so the waitress took the fish back to tell them to cook longer. She returned within 5 minutes saying that this time they... More

Sorry "badtaste" for what is a very rare bad experience at Mic Mac Tavern. I for one came in with my family tonight. My parents ordered the hot hamburger and my sister got a ceaser salad. I normally get a well-done steak but this time I ventured into a medium rare steak and it was very juicy and very flavorful.... More

Date night with my hubs. We zipped into the MicMac for a quick bite and as always had a tasty meal served by friendly staff.

Since this once delightful, traditional, bustling pub moved into its new location just down the road a tiny distance from the original location it has lost most of it's flavour! I mean absolutely no pun intended! I have been in three times hoping for an improvement but I have now given up! 1st it was burnt burgers & a very... More

This is not a restaurant for a romantic dinner, but it is a restaurant that does what it does very well. While there is no real atmosphere, the food is excellent and good value for money and the portions are generous. We went for lunch. They serve all day breakfast, so I chose the eggs, fishcakes (something of a specialty... More

I got the steak and rib combo. It was very good. The steak was cooked perfectly medium rare. My daughter got the Fish chowder and poutine. Serving size was good but the chowder was a bit salty.

Had an excellent meal at the Mic Mac, and was pleasantly surprised that there was no line up! Was disappointed because they were out of lobster and clams, but it was fairly late when we went. Menu probably isn't great for super health consious diners, but we all need a little splurge now and again!

My favorite place to have brunch and steak. Newly renovated and now can accommodate more people. Peak times you might have a 10-20 minutes wait but they let you know. Really enjoy the food.

When 1950s food is what you seek, that is to say deep-fried and fat-laden, then the Mic Mac Tavern is for you. This is an old-style pub, period. No interesting variations on the menu, and next to nothing for vegetarians. Service is friendly but not quick. Be prepared to stay a while. That being said, the Mic Mac is crowded... More
