Four adults had three different entrees for this annual dining event and all were pleased with their food choices. Everyone enjoyed the meal served and the service was excellent.

The Library Restaurant is one of the finer places to dine in Midland. It has a warm, intelligent atmosphere (the restaurant itself is one of the beautiful old Carnegie library buildings). The menu changes to reflect seasonal availability, which is always refreshing and interesting. The food itself is perfection, with a comprehensive wine list. The servers are always professional, attentive... More

We were very pleased to hold our wedding ceremony and reception on Valentine's Day! Justin, Chef Ericka, Pastry Chef Marcia and their whole team exceeded our expectations in every way! The perfect venue for the perfect day! Our guests enjoyed an extraordinary 16 course tasting menu accompanied by impeccable service! Thank you so much for helping to make our day... More

I have had the pleasure of eating here many times. The food is great, the view is one of the best in the area (overlooking the water). Band night is always a fun night with a good mix of songs & bands. Would go more often if I could.

I went to The Library Restaurant with my wife and two guests. The food was excellent but the service was so so. The food was a long time coming but was worth the wait. My wife ordered a glass of wine and had to remind the server 15 minutes later she had ordered wine. I ordered a second diet soda... More

This restaurant is in what once was the town library (the library moved to a larger building). The ambiance is early 20th Century schoolroom but the food is well-prepared contemporary cuisine. Service can be a bit spotty, especially if there are a lot of vacationers in town. Steaks are broiled and done exactly to order. Coffee is good and to... More

Had a very good dinner here January 2015 before going to a show at the Cultural Centre. Started with a fish chowder - with salmon being the fish. Really very good, perhaps a bit much for a starter, nice big bowl, I may not have ordered a main if I'd known how big the soup was going to be. Everyone... More
