Don't let the poorly designed website fool you! This was a fun evening. Food was very good. The "fries" or garlic herb roasted fingerling potatoes as they are called are by far the best "fries" I have ever had. The service was ok. (My wife wanted ketchup and the waitress didn't show herself for a very long time). Had a... More

Anniversary night, never been to Bay City. We made reservations, which I am glad we did. Upon arrival the bar (entrance) was packed, all tables and bar were full. We waited about 10 minutes before being seated. The inner walls of the restaurant are brick, the original structure which is unique. The menu has a nice selection, but we opted... More

This is a nice old downtown building that has been made into a restaurant. The food is good and you can get great sandwiches or delicious dinner. They also have a good selection of beer and wine. When I want to celebrate something special or just shopping downtown Bay City, I like to go here. They also have a room... More

We go to this restaurant because of a quality staff, at the table, behind the bar, and in the kitchen. Consistency is a "lock in word" for the meals here. I always know when I order something it will be prepared with the same quality meat and vegetables and I will be satisfied. I have used them for business, weddings,... More

Actually went twice in the same week. The Southwest Cobb salad was good both times but significantly different in appearance and level of heat. The burger was real greasy. The bun was soaked through by the time it got to the table. Both wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. Bathroom has most improved since my first visit. Still dirty... More

Had a grilled cheese sandwich with 3 different cheeses and garlic butter. Prizes are mid range. They have sandwiches, main dishes, salads, appetizers. Plan to spend about 90 minutes or longer there.

Restaurant is great in terms of atmosphere and food, tried the sea scallops and shrimp which was amazing. It was very busy and couldn't find a table quickly, staff was nice but relatively late in the response.
