The first night we were in Baddeck we had dinner at McCurdy's, the restaurant at the Silver Dart Lodge. The Maple Whiskey Salmon was terrific. The service was quite good. On another night we were told we could be seated in 30 minutes so we decided to wait in the bar. Alas there was no one tending bar. One of... More

We had dinner here last night, started with the mussels they were excellent. Had seafood fettuccine and a ham dinner both good. The con here was no local beer to try. Small menu but something for everyone. The view here is spectacular overlooking the Bras d'or lakes while having your meal. Overall a good place to eat.

The views of the lake are outstanding (call for reservations if you want a window table.) The food is just average but the view makes up for it. The restaurant will be closing in a few weeks for the season.

We had 2 breakfasts and one supper there! It was soo good! The wait staff were all friendly and food was hot and presented very well on the plate. I highly recommend you make supper reservations like we did because it was full when we got there and would not have had a table if we didn't have a reservation.... More

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.
