To be completely fair...I haven't eaten here. That's why this is rated at three instead of one. BUT WAIT! I did try to eat here. My wife and I stopped in one night for dinner. After looking at the menu...and looking at the menu...nothing really looked appealing. I wanted a nice piece of... read more

Tried to book an event here, but got a rude response. I thought the customer was always right. Won't be going here for the event.

The service here is amazing, and their food is pretty good. It's not the best seafood I've had, but it's definitely good. The atmosphere is super nautical but really comfortable.

A group of us "birthday kids", all now in our 50s, go here every year in February to celebrate together. This past February there were 11 of us (including friends and additional family with us) and Bay City was very accommodating and the food and service was great! We did make a reservation ahead of time and planned an "off"... More

My wife and I and another couple went to Bay City for dinner. We have been there for lunches but not for dinner for many years. It was a Friday night and we had no reservations so we were ready for a long wait. The place was packed so we checked in with the hostess and went to the bar... More

Being born and raised in Baltimore, I can tell you that this restaurant is the closest to Maryland seafood that you will find in Hanover, PA. The food is always fresh and they have some unusual items on the menu as well such as a whole flounder. I think it is fairly priced for good seafood and the portions are... More

There is a good selection of items on the menu. The food was tasty. The service was average. They did tack on an 18% gratuity (we were a party of 7). The portions are on the small side, but the prices are comparable to others in the area.

Nice menu for all with selection ranging from seafood through steaks and everything in between. Good service, good value and good food. Nice place for dinner or lunch just north of the square in Hanover.
