Nice Quiet Meal

We ate there on a Sunday night at 8 and were the only ones there. The baked spaghetti was delicious as was their signature dessert, a multi-layered cheesecake. It was a very nice dinner to cap off our anniversary weekend.

Only went for dessert, which was delicious, but the ambience is very open and reminded me of Europe.

My husband surprised me on Mother's Day with reservations at the Atrium. Service was horrible and hostesses were rude and condescending. Sat for 15 minutes and not one waitress approached us. They overbooked, long lines, not enough food, long lines, people standing everywhere, etc. After someone finally noticed we hadn't been waited on, the hostess was snippy and acted all... More

Had a Xmas party for a group of 27 people let's start off by saying Laura who booked the party was very nice and did what was promised for us and even went the extra mile accomodating us on last minute notice of two extra people that were coming early for dinner! Also our waiter Chuck and his assistant were... More

Coming from nearby Saginaw, our family of 5 adults was going to attend an event at the State Theatre. We were going to eat at another downtown Bay City restaurant but couldn't get in. Wandering around the cute downtown we stumbled across the Atrium. We love Europe and it reminded us of restaurants there. Loved the decorations and fireplace. The... More

When our bed and breakfast guests ask for our advice for a good local restaurant, the Atrium is always one of the top on the list and they are always very satisfied. It's close by, it is decorated well, the tables are not crowded, and best of all....the food is very good.

We walked to this restaurant from our B&B, were greeted and seated very quickly. Our order was delivered correctly and in a timely manner, and the food was delicious!

We recently had dinner at the Atrium and were not disappointed. They have a broad menu encompassing pasta, steaks, seafood, and German dishes. The service is terrific and the food is homemade. They also own the adjacent Steinhaus which has some great beers on tap. We had our daughter-in law's baby sower there a few years ago and everybody was... More

We chose this because of its location near our hotel and because it looked nice and bright. The service was fine and the meal was also very nice.

On a recent trip to Bay, we stumbled across this gentrified old building that is an eclectic cross between pizza and fine dining. Our first visit found us ordering soup and salads that were delicious and fresh. It was a pleasant surprise from the other restaurants downtown. When we were returning from downstate, we made an evening visit for dinner... More
