Had a nice visit, would not return with kids, nothing on the dinner menu that served them. We did make due. Food and service was great. Pricy dinner menu. Burgers $9-10 and other dinners $12-30

Very beautiful bar with extremely knowledgeable bartenders. We ordered Drambuies on the rocks and were offered doubles with the advice they would save us $$ if we thought we would order two. Great atmosphere and food menu looks like a chef is there.. Would definitely go back!

My husband and me enjoy a date night on Tuesday at Old City Hall for half off glass of wine night. They have great appetizer and sandwiches.

This was a totally unexpected winner. If I lived near Bay City, I'd be a regular. Patrick, our delightful waiter, mentioned a new menu and pointed me towards the calimari as a starter. The succulent, tender, lightly breaded strips were divine. My husband had to defend his Tuscan bean and shrimp dish from me - another winner. Meanwhile I had... More

The atmosphere is very upscale but comfortable. The service is fantastic and the steak medallions were to die for......definitely a great place to enjoy as a couple, girl's night out, or dinner with the guys

Another restaurant conveniently located down the street from the hotel where I was staying. Nice atmosphere and great menu choices. The prime rib sandwich on artisan sour dough bread had great flavor. The butter on the outside of the bread made it a little messy on your fingers, but it was worth it. I didn't realize it would come with... More

The menu is great and the atmosphere is appealing. The staff were professional and the food was excellent. I would ask for low salt next time, since it tended to be more than I am used to, but this was definitely a splendid experience. If I lived in the area, I would dine here on a regular basis.

I liked it--my husband didn't. The prices are on the steep side and the menu is a tad fancy for us plain folk. I like the setting because I'm into history.

I've only been here once and I would go back if I had the chance. I had the french dip and it was amazing. The fries that came with it were very good too. It was very dark though, I found myself squinting to read the menu and see the people across from me.

Old City Hall's Lettuce Wraps are FABULOUS. I'm always tempted to try something different whenever I eat there, but the Lettuce Wraps entice me every time. They're better than the Lettuce Wraps at any other restaurant I have visited. Delicious and excellent choice for a healthy meal!
