Thank you Helen, Tricia and Kevin for the great food and amazing service! The Oakville Titans lacrosse team had all of our team meals at the MGM while participating in the 2018 President's Cup. They were so accommodating and the food was excellent. Great prices and large portions. On our final day Tricia went above and beyond offering their van to assist with moving equipment and a place to store items. I'm sure the team will remember your kindness for years to come!

I don't think in 25ish years in Nanaimo I have ever gone to MGM, but on a why not choice we did.
The restaurant is HUGE, and seemingly cannot quite get its vibe figured out, and parts of the restaurant are quite dated.
The menu is also huge with almost anything you can think of on it, except sushi. I opted for the french dip and was not disappointed, portion size was big and the food was fresh and hot.

It wont be 25 more years till I go back, but it wont be a date night either.

Thank you for your review Scott! The MGM has been run by our family for over 30 years now. We are definitely eclectic, maybe even a little quirky ;) The momma bear of our family, Helen, loves her plants and animal statues. We're hoping to make some updates very soon. And thank you for your comment on our French Dip. We roast and carve our own AAA Angus beef in house and use a french roll from Portofino Bakery in Victoria.

Place is a little run down. Waitress was very good. Friendly and good. To bad she had to go as shift ended. The replacement was ok but not as good.

Food was a let down. Veggies were overcooked so mushy. Meat was mainly gristle and fat. My wife had better success with a club sandwich but the toasted bread was burned.

All and all it was edible but doubt I would bother with it again

Always good food, service and prices. Burgers are great but we prefer the homemade meals like hot turkey dinner, roast beef, steaks etc. Its a time warp back to the 80's and 90's and the prices are fantastic.
