We have been reading the reviews before we decided to visit this restaurant. Our visit was around 5 PM on a Friday. No lines not a big crowd. Upon entering the restaurant, the hostess asked us "where would you like to sit, deck, bar or dining room? We went for a table at the dining room. We were greeted by... More

I love this restaurant, it is perfect for a good date night. It is even nice enough to meet for business, but there is also a casual area and a bar to suit whichever mood you are in. The seafood is fresh, and I have always felt the money spent was worth it. The seafood nachos are an amazing appetizer.... More

Bay City is Hanover standard. Not a chain, but large enough to sometimes loose the charm of a local dining establishment. Prices a little high for the quality of the food. Service can be hit or miss, depending on time of day. I agree with "Sullivan Girls" that decor is definitely dated, but that alone would not deter me from... More

The food was like microwave dinners and the price was ridiculous for what you received. The chicken wings were not fully cooked and had veins in them. Even a seasoned carnivore would've been sick by these wings. The service was so-so especially since there were only 2 waiters for the entire restaurant. He did the best that he could.

We went for my mother's birthday. This is her favorite place to go for seafood, but it honestly can be hit or miss. Lucky for us it was a hit on a busy Saturday night. Highly recommend the wings, crab legs, scallops. Don't recommend the mozzarella sticks, ribs, french fries. The french fries are downright gross. This place is expensive,... More

Decor was outdated and just too many birds on the ceiling. Interior was not what we expected.When we sat at the booth,the tablecloth was so long we almost pulled everything off the table.We started with French onion soup and mushrooms imperial.The soup was OK and mushrooms were topped with delicious crab however they were a little bland. My daughter and... More

Well worth the visit. My husband and I always go here for our Valentine's dinner. He looks forward to his Oyster stew and I look forward to the Chocolate covered strawberries w/honey & Grand Marnier liquor.

My family and I visited Bay City during a shopping trip in Hanover. We ordered crab cakes, sandwiches, burgers, and various side orders. I've got to say... for Hanover, the crab cakes held their own compared to MD crab cakes. The burger (Reuben patty melt) was pretty delicious as well, but the side order of rice pilaf was bland. The... More
