MGM does have a nice dance floor good for a night out, I would check before hand if you like entertainment as you can get caught in the senior warf with an according player or lounge lizard on piano. BUT some times you can catch an exciting band. or very good artist Everthing is run on a cheap budget things... More

Wish we had found this place at the beginning of our holiday instead of the last day. We stopped in for a late dinner, we had been travelling most of the day, and that late in the evening not very hungry. My husband had a club sub, it had real turkey, ham and roast beef. He said that was one... More

We have tried to eat at this restaurant twice and both times we were not even served. We gave it a second chance after a bad expierence and nothing change the second time. We are not sure if this is a restaurant or a dance club. Music of oldies and people up dancing while you try to get the servers... More

The owner greeted us as we walked in to order a take out meal as we were staying in the motel next door and were exhausted from our long drive. He was so friendly and accommodating. The meals were made quickly and they were so good. I was pleasantly surprised that our meals were homemade and so delicious that we... More

We were driving around Nanaimo looking for a place for lunch. We did not want something that we would find back home in Alberta. We came across the MGM and were very glad that we did. A very spacious restaurant - even with quite a few people there it was not noisy. It looked to us like many locals were... More

I would definitely reccommend this place. The staff were very good. Very friendly. Very helpful. The food was fantastic. Even though we had a very large family meal, they were still quick with all the food and drinks. They came around all the time to check on all of us. It was very refreshing to experience their friendly staff and... More

We had dinner and breakfast here. It is located next to the Harbor Light Motel. Both meals were adequate and not expensive. The menu is large enough to provide something for everyone. It is a place where the locals frequent.
