Awesome View and Food

Had an amazing dinner at McCurdy's Dining Room at the Silver Dart Lodge. Such a beautiful view. Shouldn't complain lol but the service was very rapid. We weren't rushed by any means however we wanted the experience to last longer. Great food!

Our Australian relative-visitor was awestruck by the view and complimentary about the food. Among other things, they serve good wines and crispy bacon. Two very important attributes for our family. A very friendly staff topped it off. We will return!

The restaurant is old as is the entire Silver Dart establishment. Our breakfast in McCurdy's was buffet (on a Thursday) and most dishes were lukewarm to cold

I ate here for breakfast which was nice but the last time was an evening meal with a friend. I had seafood pasta which was as good as I have had. So much fresh shellfish and a tasty sauce. The wine was excellent with it too.

Disappointing meal, vegetables uncooked ( or al dente) depending on your taste, fries overdone and the meat could have been better. Depite staying onsite we are at a local diner the following 2 evenings which was superb.

Stayed at the Silver Dart. Had three dinners in McCurdy's. There were two of us and we had different dishes each time. All six meals were good. Other meals that other patrons looked good. Though I did have a problem with $15 hamburger.

After the Baddeck Lobster Supper place canceled our group reservation for 44 people without informing us, we were left with 11 of us who had no place for dinner. We were so looking forward to lobster. The reception clerk got the chef for us, who had only 6 lobsters left. We decided we could deal with that, and order other... More

We ate here on one evening. We choose the buffet meal which had a good choice for all 3 courses and was excellent value for money. we hadn't booked but I would advise people to do so as guests were being turned away because of lack of availability

SUPPER The food was good, pretty reasonably priced, and good portions, however, they must hire better wait staff. The first night, we waited an hour for our food, the waitress was highly inattentive, there was a bone in our chicken (no offer to comp the meal!), second night was ok, however the third night we got a waitress that knew...
