Fine Meal in Midland

While on a trip to Georgian Bay my wife and I found a number of restaurants closed on Sunday or Monday. We were happy to find The Library open for dinner on Monday. While not a quick meal, we found our server and service to be fine. Appetizer portions in general appeared to be quite large. My... read more

We stayed in Midland for a couple of nights as part of our recent fly-drive holiday in Canada. On our first evening we looked around for a restaurant and stumbled on The Library - how lucky we were! We had a fantastic meal at a very reasonable price and with great service from the staff. It is a lovely building... More

My Husband and I frequent the library restaurant quite often, the food is high quality and very tasty. Their chefs do know there job and their creations are great. The setting is quaint being in the old Midland Library. If you just want a pub lunch or dinner go downstairs which is casual but nice. Since we are Airbnb hosts... More

We always enjoy the delicious flavours of The Library's food however the service is hit or miss depending on who serves you. My parents took me here for my 50th birthday dinner while my children were secretly decorating my house for a surprise party. Dinner reservations were for 5:30pm, there were 2 other couples in the restaurant with us that... More

This restaurant has a great location in a historic building in downtown Midland. Outside they have a super patio on which one can dine, downstairs they have a pub and upstairs the dinning room is a nice quiet place to dine.

We went to The Library for a family outing for the 1st time and we were very impressed. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I had the stuffed chicken, my wife the Salmon and my kids (both teenagers) the pasta and the ribs. All dishes were superb. Highly recommend. We will be back.

The Library Restaurant is in the building that once held the Midland Public Library. The ambiance is built around that fact. The steaks were well-prepared in the broiler. The vegetables came correctly steamed, and the rice fluffy. Dessert was nice and they serve a good cup of coffee. That is important to me.

There was only one table of people in the restaurant when we arrived at 6:00 on a Wednesday night. We waited over 5 minutes to be greeted and eventually a young lady who just arrived to work seated us before even punching in and taking off her coat. Good job to her! We did not receive a wine list so... More

Made reservations for party of 4; on arrival server asked us where we wished to sit;a bit confusing as it was our first time there.. Bruschetta and mussels appetizers were excellent! Two orders of stuffed chicken entrees revealed the chicken was not stuffed with anything. The steak entrees were ok. Generally, the value is questionable as the plate portions were... More
