My wife and I go the Library Restaurant for special occasions. Very good. We went last year for Valentines, and may go again in 2017. Went for Thanksgiving as well. Very enjoyable, and lots of excellent food. Go as a couple, you will enjoy. One of the finest dining spots in Midland area.

four of us decided we would try The Library Restaurant at it's new location in the Highland Inn. I had my misgiving about portion size so went reluctantly. When we arrived we where promptly seated and our server Natalie was there to see to our wants and needs. The four us ordered the red house wine which was quite good,... More

We enjoyed a small Christmas get-together, eight ladies having dinner and drinks. The service was a bit slow but that was OK since we weren't in any hurry. The food was fantastic. I had the salmon which had a herbed cream cheese and light phyllo pastry topping. It was done to perfection and served hot with wild rice and a... More

Although the ambiance of the new location inside the Best Western isn't as impressive as when it was downtown in the historical building, it's quite attractive & cozy. The service was excellent & the food was great.

We were there for my birthday and like always, it was a great experience. I had the steak, which was done to perfection and my husband had the duck, which unfortunately wasn't as well done as he would had liked. The waitress mentioned the duck should be medium and he tried it that way, but it was not as tender... More

I have not been there in awhile, but last time my wife and I had a meal there it was too noisy and you couldn't think or enjoy your meal. Couldn't wait to leave. Very high ceiling and a few loud guests equals poor judgement by ownership or servers. Must have been regulars. First time there, food and service was... More

We had dinner at The Library on September 23 at about 6:00 PM. It was a disappointing experience, to say the least. My partner has a black pepper allergy and after mentioning this to our server we entered into a protracted discussion of what she could have to eat. There were perhaps two out of nine dishes that had not... More

My wife's steak was perfect as was my halibut. Prices very reasonable. Will go back if we're ever back in town.
