I hadn’t been to Midway in well over a year but recently renewed my medical card. It’s completely different and under new ownership. The store looks great with the new look. I was super pleased to see Ashley still there from the previous staff. . After so long she remembered me and greeted me with a huge smile and welcome back. She quickly got me updated and in n out in 10min. I drive a good distance to go here and will continue to because of employees like her! It was a relief to she handled it all no hassle to me. Thanks!read more

Such a helpful staff, great selection! I'm a lucky patient!Update: Just like most acquisitions, when a company is bought out by some corporate guys, The culture gets inherently lamer and less connected with its customer base… I think it’s safe to say in the case of Ascend, who purchased Midway Dispensary recently, has already done so by removing my customer discount (despite spending up to a grand a month sometimes there) and senior disability discounts. Furthermore the practice of pushing your own product above all else is pretty lame if you ask meread more

I've been to this dispensary many times. I usually go in knowing what I want so it's pretty quick. Although today I went in and out was surprisingly very busy. Nonetheless in and out in less than 20 minutes. In suggest placing an online order or knowing what you want by checking there menu online. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.read more

Staff was very friendly. They had a great selection and no line in the morning.Only complaint would be the atmosphere. I felt like I was walking into a government building. Like a secretary of state office that smelled like cannabis. Most dispensaries I have been to feel more like Apple stores. Not going to stop me from going but could use a nice rebranding.read more

Wow what a fantastic way to ward off out of state customers. The taxes are crazy high 35%. The product is mid-top shelf with the price to go along with it($60 1/8). No out of state medical. If you want to pay $25 a gram go ahead. They won't show you the product before you purchase. Was over charged for an item on sale and when I tried to go back directly in the front door I was denied. Said I could not bring the item I was overcharged for into the building. I walked to the store and was told to put it in my car before coming back in. Thanks wise guy.read more

Security staff was friendly outside and as I exited! Decent medical product selection and reasonable prices on sale items. Although since I paid with a credit card they had to round up to charge me ... and gave me back what I saved in cash is what I think I was told... Also, I had more staff aware of and handling my purchase experience during my entire time here. More than others making their purchases here while I did... The structure inside has changed a lot since they first opened. More space now. Picked up some great local medical flower selection from my closest dispensary in Garfield Ridge.#ElevateYourExperienceread more

I actually really like this dispensary! They have a huge variety of items to choose from! They have you pick what you want from a tablet which is honestly so helpful! I've been to place that just have paper menus and they never have the information posted about them. On these tablets you can see the percentages and prices clearly. Everyone has been super helpful while I've been there. You can also pay cash or card!read more

So thank you to all of the staff here.Edit: Don't listen to the bad reviews, they are from people who don't understand the industry yet and are used to buying from the shady guy who picks you up in his car does the deal and drives around the block. 🙄read more

First time at this place. Saw they were appointment only, but they had plenty of appointments available. Got there before my appointment, but I didn't have to wait. Plenty of stock available and the staff was friendly and helpful.From my experience, I don't rely on what's on any website for current stock. If I want to make sure something online is actually in stock, I call. I know it's like, old fashioned to actually call and talk to people, but it's the best way not to waste your own time.read more

Had what I was looking for on the REC menu, Florida Orange, on iheartjane, got there and they said it was only for medical. seen other reviews that hey pulled this bait and switch before. Did not buy anything else and will not return here again.Edit in response to owners reply:Unfortunately this wasn’t a case of “we just sold out”. Employee said it was never on the REC menu. Florida Orange still on the rec menu now by the way even tho it’s MED only, false advertising. Plus I noticed another very popular strain you just posted on iheartjane last night that is not on your “official website menu”.Buyers beware. If your looking for a specific product, keep these reviews in mind. Good chance that it won’t actually be there and they’ll just encourage you to buy something else.Have been to multiple dispensary’s all over and haven’t had a shady business experience like this before. First time for everything. Wish I listened to the other reviews before I made the trip.read more

I love this place, but please make sure your employees are wearing their masks! I saw a gentlemen wearing a spit guard without a mask on lol I’m not sure he’s aware that COVID is airborne and those shields only protect against spit droplets. I’ve also seen a lot of of employees wearing their masks below their noses or just blatantly incorrectly. If I continue to see this, I will have to go somewhere else. I’ve seen this multiple times and haven’t said a word, but after I saw people not wearing them, i definitely had a problem with that. Please do better managers!read more

From 1 star to 5 starsOk so I went back to give it another chance on their products they sell and.......great flower this time. The buds were full not stringy like my first visit (all they had) . It was a big difference then my first visit. Like night and day. I can't remember her name but the girl that helped me was amazingly helpful (she had long black hair) I actually walked out with 2 products this time instead of 1 and i was very happy with the product this time.I will definitely visit midway dispensary again. Thank you staff.keep up the busy hard work. Btw they have a great staff of people friendly nice and helpful. 5 stars to staff alone.read more

Bad experience like I’m dealing with the black market, not a pharamacy/medical dispensary. Workers are not very knowledgeable on store products, and products seems completely off compared to other dispensaries- It’s like they will sell you grass in a jar if they can sneak away with it?! I highly do not recommend this place. Very unprofessional... Safe smokes!!!read more

If you're purchasing for rec use I'd advise going at your own risk. While the reduction in wait time is great due to the appointment set up it seems that rec menu is not up to date. I've gone multiple times due to an item currently on the Rec menu and it was sold out by the time I got there. Multiple times I was told the item sold out several days ago even though the item is currently on the menu. This may not be an issue for some people, but if you're driving a good distance it's a bit of a let down especially when you really want a specific item. Good luckread more

Employees are helpful but what is the purpose of scheduling an appointment when you STILL have to congregate and form a line?? Defeats the purpose and you should really specify on your website what the process entails so people can arrive early instead of assuming they can be taken care of soon. Also, if you're gonna have someone outside assisting at LEAST make sure they're enforcing the 6ft apart rule. Everything about this process is pointless and borderline dangerous.read more

Probably not worth the wait (usually an hour wait) they usually run out of weed and only have edibles and wax but the edibles are actually worth it for hardcore users. Bought and ate some Friday morning and underestimated the power of the edibles and took more then the recommendation of 5mg and didn’t sober up till Sunday night so yeah you get what you paid for, for the edibles well worth it! Just careful I am a hardcore smoker usually takes me 3 joints to feel high and the edibles were 3x more than that, I will never buy edibles again just cause I didn’t like that fact that I wasted my weekend lol but that’s on me not the dispensary, I just wish they had a menu/sign outside to let us know what they got and don’t got because as I went inside i asked for weed which they didn’t have and decided to buy edibles because I waited an hour in the cold. I will return to the dispensary when the hype dies down.read more

Great service. Two knowledgeable people sat with me for forty-five minutes to understand my complex medical history, and make recommendations on products that addressed my issues. One of which was incessant pain in my cervical spine. The pain would wake me multiple times each night, and I generally found myself laying awake in bed each night after 3 - 4 am. When your not getting a good nights sleep your medical problems become compounded, and your days are more difficult. The very first night that I tried one of their RSO products I slept through the night from 10 pm until 10:30 am! I was shocked, and so grateful. Over the next weeks I played with the dosing, and continued to sleep through the night. I even backed off the dose that I was using because one morning I woke a 12 pm... seriously, (note: I retired early so no more salt mine :). I’ve since titrated to a perfect dose and sleep through the night from 10 pm until 8 am most nights. It’s life changing. The people at Midway are nice, knowledgeable and sincere in trying to help you.Jan 14, 2020 update: have switched to the Mindy’s Kitchen 10 mg THC gummies. They are much easier to take. The RSO is fine but I found that I needed to add it to caffeine-free herbal tea and let it dissolve. Gummies taste good and easier to take.read more

Don't use this dispensary if you prefer Sativa strains because they are always out or have a lousy variety.....prices are good and have no complaints about the staff they have always been pretty good it's just the selection or lack thereof i always come looking for Sativa strains and they usually only have 1 or 2 obscure low quality Sativa strains in stock for example i would call inquiring about the Bruce banner strain "oh next week we should have it" so i called the next week and nope nothing but some garbage Sativa strains i never heard of that wnded up being low quality and low potencyread more

Very knowledgeable staff. Everyone is very friendly, and genuinely seem like they care. They make the effort to remember little details about you or things you've told them, so you feel very welcomed. They will spend as much time as you need explaining things to you/helping you find the right product. If you don't need any help, they are very quick and get you in and out. Very good selection of products. The concentrates are a little pricey, but it's Cool County...and the quality is top notch.read more
