Great food and atmosphere. German food on menu! Downtown Bay City is a great place to shop and have a meal and/or drinks!

Stopped here for lunch in the middle of a day of antiquing (it's situated among a bunch of antique stores in downtown Bay City). My wife and I both ordered the German Sausage Platter. It was made up of a link each of weisswurst, knackwurst, and bratwurst, served over a bed of sauerkraut with red cabbage and german potato salad... More

My friend and I went for lunch. I had the chef special. Buttersquash soup and sandwich. The soup was so yummy, I wanted to eat the bowl. The soup is only served during the cold seasons.

I went here last night for my husbands work Christmas party. We were the only people in the restaurant and it took over 15 minutes just to get our drinks. The Cesar salad had no dressing and the waiter was nowhere to be seen to take it back. I got the veal and it tasted like some one dumped a... More

This is an interesting restaurant in a great location downtown. It was our first time here. They serve a variety cuisines and I chose a German dish, weiner schnitzel. It was good, a 3 out of 5. My wife had Veal Oscar which was excellent. The best part of the meal was the service. Nice friendly smiles from the staff... More

Visiting from WV I took my mother out for dinner on a Friday about 6pm. I had eaten here several years ago and the food was good. What a disappointment this time. Crab cakes appetizers were terrible:mostly filler with very little crab meet..Spicy Thai Peanut Pasta and Chicken Pesto Pasta both tasted like left overs that had been warmed up.... More

What a find while antique shopping in downtown Bay City! The restaurant that we usually have lunch at was being remodeled so we decided to try The Atrium out. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and the windows were so large it gave you the feeling you were sitting outside. We were greeted immediately and seated near the front with a... More

Great food! Great atmosphere! Great location! The Atrium in Bay City is a fantastic place for just about any occasion. I have been to birthdays, showers, fashion shows, retirement and graduation parties here as well as lunches and dinners with friends. Great staff to work with. The Atrium really is a great slice of all the best that Bay City... More

We had wanted to find a place serving local craft beers and the Atrium was recommended. Very interesting restaurant. There are 3 different rooms, 1 like a German beer hall, 1 like an Italian garden and 1 like a French café. All 3 serve the same food. Good food, tasty and a good variety of light, and traditional comfort food.... More
