“Nice romantic dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Would definitely come again. I felt this restaurant was "fancy" without being "black tie". It was very unique and a very nice experience.

“Friday Date Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Good Ribeye Steaks, excellent fingerling potatoes and veggies, nice beer & wine selection. Moderate pricing. A little loud.

“Delicious - quality meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Service was great, and the menu is extensive. However it gets quite loud and full of boisterous holiday-makers....not good for kids.

“Ok But Not Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

In town for the day and we were recommended this place by a local at the waterfront. The restaurant was surprisingly large and quite busy. The place was a little dark but ceilings were high. There were brick walls and wood floors.

I ordered jambalaya and my fiancee ordered the artichoke chicken. We both had the featured fajita soup. The soup was delicious. Although the artichoke chicken was advertised as creamy, it wasn't. There wasn't a lot of flavor. The jambalaya had good flavor but was surprisingly dry with very little rice. It wasn't traditional jambalaya.

It was an okay restaurant that we would not make a special trip back to go to again.

“Excellent all the way around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We went to the Old City Hall for dinner during business conerence. Atmosphere, food and service were all very good. I have a rather fussy palate, and the chef accomodated my request and the result was excellent. We did become a rather rowdy group, however, the service remained very good. If you're going to be in Bay City, you can't lose here. And it's easy walking distance rom the Doubletree.
