Going in on a Friday evening we expected it to be slow, but to begin with we called ahead and the hostess gave our table away to someone else so we were waiting a good 30 mins for a table. The waitress we were given had a large group of people she was much more interested in tending to compared... More

Hello Frankie, It is disappointing to hear that you did not have a chance to witness the exceptional service our staff members typically provide. We would appreciate it if you could provide us with the date and time you had dined with us so we can get to the bottom of why your experience went south. We also would like... More

We had a party of 14 for a birthday gathering. We were greeted and seated immediately and they even helped us by rearranging tables when some in our party could not come. Our server was very nice and helped us make some decisions with drinks and meals. Some of us tried the crab dip as an appetizer and it was... More

recommended by the hotel staff as a good place to have dinner. I had the 10 oz. prime rib steak and it was soooooo good. Cooked perfect but the bakes potato was not very hot and did not melt the butter well. Kathy's comment about her spaghetti with meat sauce was marginal but suitable. Al & Kathy

We have been eating there for many years. Steamer pot totally overcooked. Our waitress was excellent, brought out another crab cluster. It was also so overcooked I could not eat it. Filled out the comment card complete with email, got no response. Obviously they do not care about dissatisfied customers. I feel sorry for the wait staff. We will not... More

The crab cakes are good here and the summer patio is very nice. However, it always seems to be a problem to get in and out of the parking lot. The adjacent road is a main venue for shopping areas and some entrances are one way. Be careful!

Bay City is a large and comfortable venue conveniently located on the North end of Hanover, Pennsylvania with lots of parking. Had not been here for a year or two, but luncheon there today proved a real treat. From an excellent and varied menu, I picked a daily special of Scrod and Crabmeat. It exceeded my expectations, baked to perfection... More

Been in a seafood mood lately and say Bay City going through Hanover and stopped for lunch. We indulged in chowder and the seafood nachos. Very interesting and extremely filling. Did make room for key lime pie. Definitely a menu with a lot of seafood choices, more than some ocean side eateries. The restaurant was larger than it looked and... More

This place is right around the corner from my house which makes this an easy choice for seafood. I called and asked about hard shell crabs in the dining room or lounge and was told "in availability and only by dozen." When i got to the lounge, Lisa the bar genius was gracious enough to offer me half dozen to... More
