We went to McCurdy's when staying at the Silver Dart lodge. The first time we went for dinner, it was because of our package with the lodge that included dinner. We liked it so much that we went back the next night for dinner. We started with the mussels and they were AMAZING, I don't typically care for mussels but... More

Great view of the lake but food was just average and service was wanting. Good if you are staying at the hotel and need a convenient meal.

This was our second time back to Baddeck in three years and we chose to again stay at the Dart and eat at McCurdy's. I had the salmon dish and it was delicious. The presentation was very appealing as well. The menu, although very good, could be expanded to include a few new items just to mix it up. The... More

We ate here both nights we were in Baddeck. Our waitress Elaine was just perfectly friendly and funny and knowledgeable about the menu, the restaurant history and the area. We asked to be seated in her section on our second night. The salmon and steak were excellent. Nice selection of beers and wines. And the views! Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at the Silver Dart Lodge for two days and nights and enjoyed several wonderful meals. The food at McCurdy's was by far the best we had during our trip around the Cabot Trail!

We were on a bus trip, so can't comment about the price. We had 2 breakfasts and one dinner in the restaurant, and we couldn't fault the service. The breakfast buffet is comparable to others on our trip, and once again the one toaster is not up to delivering hot toast for 44 people in a reasonable time. Everything else?... More

Had breakfast here recently and it was average. Service was friendly and the view is spectacular! The traditional breakfast included homefries but they were not very warm. They have a buffett breakfast as well as regular menu items.

Food was excellent. Both dinner and breakfast were oversized portions. For all those complaining about price - there is a meal plan available and well worth it. Food selection is limited but fresh and tasty. Service was excellent - everyone happy and cheerful.

Breakfast isn't included at the Silver Dart Lodge to try to force you into this rather over-priced restaurant. They won't do omelettes. Don't bother asking. The food was okay. But the prices should have yielded far beyond "okay" offerings. Everything in Baddeck food-wise is over-priced. I'd recommend buying some cereal and milk at the Co-op grocery store or Needs convenience... More

Beautiful view from the dining room. Local, friendly staff. Average quality food and beverage. Convenient if you're staying at the lodge, but many area choices. Has gone down hill since I've visited in the past.
