“A different dining experience!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We dined in the McCurdy Dining Room on our anniversary!
Dining was quite different than serving in the dining room as a summer college worker!
The view was as breathtaking as when I was a young college student!
We were taken to a requested window table by a friendly hostess and then greeted by an even friendlier waitress.
Our entree was a tasty salmon presentation with delicious garlic mashed potatoes.
However, I can not say the same for my dessert; I ordered bread pudding.
The pudding was so dry I returned the over baked dessert. My grandmother made such a delicious pudding and I was hoping that my dessert would be similar- no such luck.
I was not charged for the dessert but it did not give me the all over great feeling I was hoping for my anniversary dinner.

“Dinner at the End of the Season”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

The restaurant was closing in less than a week. As a result, there were several items on the menu that they could not serve. The food preparation was good and the service was OK. The lighting was bright which took away from the atmosphere.

“nothing special but ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The restaurant had nothing special on the menu and the food was ok. They had tour buses in, but seemed to handle them well and that did not affect the service.

“Ate both breakfast and dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The dining room is nicely decorated and has a wonderful view of the water. Food was consistently good and price in line with much of what we spent on our trip to Canada
