Pleasantly surprised by my first visit to this restaurant in a lodge high on a hill above Baddeck. We visited without reservations on a Sunday night and were seated immediately. The dining room has a wall of windows overlooking the Bras d'Or Lakes and Washabuck. The layout allows everyone to have a good view. My wife and I both had... More

We were staying at the Silver Dart Lodge and decided to try their restaurant. We were very pleased with the service and the food. My wife had the pork tenderloin; it was not done quite to her liking, and the staff quickly took it back and returned it in good order. I had the pesto chicken linguine. It was very... More

Good afternoon and thank you for your review of McCurdy's Dining Room. I was pleased that the staff were able to provide meals that were pleasing to you and your wife.

We went into the meal wanting good food in a nice but laid back setting. McCurdy's offered just that. The views from the entire dining room area are great. The service was very nice without being overbearing. The food was good and reasonably priced. I would have given four or even five stars with a few changes. First, the menu... More

Very nice place to eat over looking the lake. The mussels were perfect, my salmon was also very tasty but her linguine was disappointing. (counting the seafood is not likely impressive...)

We had breakfast at McCurdy's after staying at the Silver Dart. There were at least two and possibly three bus tours trying to eat and get on the road, so the restaurant was overrun. The food was average at best. I'd find somewhere else for breakfast if I had to do it over.
