We stayed at the Silver Dart for three nights so had dinner at McCurdy's one night and breakfast a few mornings. Breakfast was good off the menu but the buffet wasn't great. Scrambled eggs were a bit chunky. Dinner depends on what you order. Friends had chicken parmigiane and seafood pasta that they liked but stay away from the fish... More

We passed up on other choices and decided to eat here when we saw the beautiful room and view of the lake, and learned we had to hurry to get one of the last reservations at 8:30 pm. The Aspy Bay mussels were awful: splattered and stuck like glue inside the shells. They were taken off the bill, thankfully. Both... More

We decided to try McCurdy's as we were guests of the Silver Dart Lodge. The food was superb and the view was breathtaking. My husband and I had the fish and chips and they were delicious. Our 15 year old so has the fish taco and although he said it was good the portion was too small for his growing... More

We really enjoyed our supper at McCurdy's dining room. We wished there were a few more seafood options on the menu but the meals we chose were very delicious. We also had the buffet breakfast the next morning. Buffet was average but sort of pricey in our opinion for the quality ($15/pp)
