We ate two breakfasts and one evening meal while staying here. We ordered breakfasts, because the buffet was over the top, too much. We had the blueberry pancakes, which were to die for! Fresh wild blueberries, light delicate pancakes, wonderful. Dinner was light because we were not so hungry; salads and soups. But because the restaurant was busy, we waited... More

We stayed at the Silver Dart Lodge for 2 nights and one night we had dinner in the McCurdy Dining Room. Service was good and the staff were friendly. I had the Goat, Walnut and Apple Salad and Mussels and the portion size for both were very good. What I liked best was that they had several Gluten Free Options.

This restaurant is disappointing in its ordinary fare. It was like dining in a chain restaurant in the States. With only one night in Baddeck, I was hoping for something a little special.

If you want a good view use the exterior seating or get close to the window. We ate here for three meals and never had any problems doing so. This is a popular spot with the bus tours because of the attached lodging. Just be aware of that when picking your eating times. We had two breakfasts at McCurdy's. Both... More

Food was very good. If you are looking for the view, No view after dark. We were there on a busy Saturday night. The service was little slow but the waitress was very attentive.

This was the attached restaurant for the Silver Dart Lodge, so we opted to just stay here for our one night stay. The dining room is beautiful, with a wall of windows facing the lake. I had the stuffed haddock, which was very good. Both of our plates were beautifully presented, with colorful fresh vegetables. Service was very good. I'm... More

The quality of the good and service were good. However We were charged $8 for two small (10 oz?) “go-cups” of skim milk.

Seafood chowder was amazing, perfectly cooked and so tasty. Maple salmon salad and fish cakes were equally good. Excellent service and very beautiful views of the lake.

We stayed at the Silver Dart Lodge for 3 nights, and had 1 dinner and 2 breakfasts at McCurdys. We really wanted to love it, as we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, but unfortunately the food was just ok. For dinner, we both had the lobster dinner. The mussels were very fishy and sandy, and the lobster very... More
