First visit since the move

After a nice Sunday drive, the family decided on visiting the new Mic Mac Tavern. None of us have visited the new restaurant and we were all very surprised how much of a change it is. Much more open. The food is still fabulous and the staff are friendly. We are going to make it a point to... read more

Likely one of the best steaks you will get, anywhere in Nova Scotia. Especially when you add mushrooms, I am pretty sure I have yet to have a bad meal here, whatever I order, and they have a local microbrew beer on tap there as well, Garrison's Nut Brown Ale. The prices were always reasonable for what you are given... More

The Micmac has always been a mainstay...it's consistent and friendly. The waitstaff are mostly all long-timers and they make you feel so welcome. The food is consistently good and they have maintained their down-home feel even in their new, bigger digs.

While the new location of the Mic Mac lacks some of the atmosphere of the old, the meals and service are still excellent. For value, presentation, speed and friendliness of service it is top of the line. If success can be a downer, the Mic Mac has achieved it - its popularity has led to frequently waiting in line at...

The food is great, the service is fast and the value is there. As long as you can wait for great food you have to eat here when in Dartmouth

I went here with a friend on a Sunday and we sat down for brunch. It took 15 mins for someone to come and give us menus. We order a beer and looked at menu. About 15 min later the waitress came and took our order. I ordered the steak and egg special with home fries and toast. When it... More

The food was great. However, never saw the same person twice......sorry we did the person who took our order brought our bill, imagine......huh. Cause didn't know who to tip so......? I do understand that they have moved but the service should not have gone down hill. Food is still GREAT. Service leaves a bad taste in your mouth though.

Excellent place to eat. Might be out of a few things some day's but that's because it's so busy. Always a line up know matter what time you go but the food is sure worth the wait. But one thing about it you don't have to wait long. I love eating there. And the waitresses n waiters are awesome. Not... More

No matter what we choose off the menu, it's consistently good. Hubby chooses steak, I go for fish cakes more often than not. Both very good. New location is nice but still crowded and noisy.
