Well, I was wandering trying find a place to eat and was following my nose through the streets of Glace Bay that was not a McDonalds or a Tim Hortons and forgot I was near this place. So I saw a road sign googled the...location and found my way to the restaurant. Google though it was open at 11 but they had changed their hours to noon. ( i sent in a correction and should be updated). The menu was very good, the staff were working nonstop and pleasant but business like. I had a lovely burger and fries and it was excellent for a lunch stop. I miss the less formal place; but, that's fine. I think it is so busy because so many places are closed due to covid.More

The best meal we could have in Glace Bay!! Great service and atmosphere, the food is all prepared fresh and of the best quality! I try to order something different each time we go and I am never disappointed. Highly recommended for a business lunch,...family friendly meal or a romantic date.More

After touring the mine and Museum, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Miners village restaurant. With it being as close to Thanksgiving, we enjoyed the most amazing Thanksgiving dinner, with all the trimmings and dessert! First class!

While visiting Cape Breton, we made a reservation at the Miners Village Restaurant. It has a cozy atmosphere. The menu is interesting and varied. The staff are friendly and know the dishes, so can advise if you are struggling to make a choice. Our server,...Andrea was sweet, professional and knowledgeable. She recommended a glass of Prosecco to start. What a lovely way to begin the evening! My husband ordered the impressive Lobster Bisque. Hot home made biscuits were served to the table. For the main course, I ordered the salmon with dill sauce and my husband ordered the halibut in lobster sauce. They were accompanied by vegetables and choice of rice or potatoes (mashed, baked, fries). Both meals were delicious! The wine list is surprisingly good for a small restaurant. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Gris to have with our meal, and it was perfect! The restaurant was bustling; I can tell this gem and supported by tourists and the community alike. Highly recommend!More

Went to this quaint resto recently with my family for dinner. Came recommended by Google Maps and it was close to the beach we went to. I had the halibut dinner special. Beautiful piece of fish fried, served with a tomato chutney, garlic mash and...carrots and broccoli. Delicious! My mom had the pan seared scallops as a starter followed by the cup of seafood chowder. Both were amazing. My daughter had the fish and chips off the kid's menu. She polished the plate. Portions are generous, as is the service. And let me not forget to mention the most amazing biscuits served before and during the meal. Hot and fresh out of the oven. Also, the oat cakes were a hit with my daughter. I highly recommend this place to locals and tourists alike.More

The restaurant is very close to the miners museum so we stopped there for lunch after visiting. The location was very convenient, but the food was nothing special.

We made reservations here to fill the time between our museum visit and the Men of the Deeps concert. The food was really great - better than we expected and the service was excellent as well.

We had lunch here after a coal mine tour. The inside of the restaurant is very cozy and the service was lovely. The fresh bread and oat cakes were a special treat and the sandwiches and burgers we ordered were hot and fresh.
