Cool place

This place actually was the Old City Hall. Its dark wood charm is fun. The place was clean, including the restrooms. Dan, our waiter, had the menu memorized and was efficient. My steak was prepared a perfect medium rare and my wife's ravioli was very good as well. Both came out hot.

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

Lunch with friends on friday afternoon. Waitress was attentive but our table did not recieve food at same time, no explanation. When received, it was beautifully presented. Food was tasty, no complaints. Restaurant has 3 large sections. Womans washroom quite dated, only offering 2 cubicles of which the lock was broken on one. However, location is good, street parking ample... More

We walked to the restaurant as a large group from the Hilton. We called ahead, they seated us immediately. They have a very different menu with an option for every taste and diet. We had appetizers to share and everyone had different entrees. The entrees all arrived together and at temperature. I had Pad Thai and asked the waiter to... More

The men's room had one broken urinal, a super sticky floor and dust on the pipes. I had the butternut squash ravioli. The Lean Cuisine version is better. Service was very attentive and responsive.

I love their Thai lettuce wraps. They have a 1/2 wine night in the bar starting at 5:00pm on Tuesday. It really is a good deal. Need to get there early because the bar fills up quickly.

My husband and I went here for lunch. This place has an upscale feel. Beautiful old building, which is typical of Bay City and something we appreciate. We were there on a Saturday afternoon, there were probably 7 other tables. Our waiter was not the greatest and food took more than a half hour. It was excellent food, however. Portions... More

Went to Old City Hall for New Years Eve with friends. Got there early to watch football and have a few drinks and appetizers. They have quite a few craft beers on tap as well as quite a few craft beers in bottles. Had the cheese tray and Calamari. Both were excellent. After a couple hours we decided we should... More
