Was extremely impressed with the food and staff. Will be back on my next trip to Bay City. Was thankful for a great non chain option.

Great atmosphere, very unique restaurant. The bar is very difficult to sit at, since the bar rail is so far away from the seats. The food is excellent though, and they always have speciality foods.

The food was delicious and although a little pricey was served hot and with a smile. Our waitress was kind enough to comp us a Creme Brulee for our anniversary.

We ate here on a Monday night 5/18 and they had wine specials. A great way to try a few different wines! If you eat beef, choose the Beef Medallions, you won't be disappointed. Service was professional and quick. Food was amazing, they had their A+ team working this night in the kitchen and on the floor!! Thank you for... More
