We had just completed a cruise on the Saginaw River aboard the Appledore Tallship and decided to stop for dinner at the Old City Hall restaurant (which is close to the dock). The staff was friendly and efficient, food was good although the menu is limited, and the place has the feeling of being an "old city hall". A bit... More

This was our group's first time in Bay City...and it was a first for all individuals in the group. We were just there for some afternoon shopping and then dinner. Per locals' recommendations, we got reservations at the "Old City Hall Restaurant" for dinner...and we were NOT disappointed! The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing but still very nice. We especially... More

The menu was creative and had a fine variety. The wine list was vast! My ahi tuna with tomato aeoli was okay, but can't compare to Bonefish Grill's. My partner's beef sirloin medallions were cooked too long. The desserts were pedestrian.

Great place to get local or regional craft beers. The food if pretty good too. The menu is a full menu with lunch and dinner. It's not a 2 for for 20 type of place. If you want a nice dinner in an atmosphere that isn't full of waiters singing happy birthday to every other customers this is the place.

We dined here on a Monday evening with our young boys (4 and 7). The restaurant has a large aquarium at the back which helped to entertain the boys. The food was excellent and so was the service. It's quite a large restaurant, the storefront is a bit deceiving that way.

My family and I ate here on Mother's Day for brunch. It was excellent. The staff was pleasant and attentive. The food was warm and delicious. The options were plenty and everyone enjoyed this meal immensely. I also visited last weekend late in the evening and caught the bar scene. It was busy but not packed. The drink menu is... More
