This restaurant was fine. Pleasant atmosphere, great service and the food was OK. Nothing fancy and everything was presented as promised. It worked.

Thank you for your business. Let me know if you are ever in town again I would like to try to make your meal more enjoyable. A 3 star review is not our norm.

Went there for dinner. The ambiance was great. Loved the old timey feel. I ordered the Buffalo shoring as an appetizer and it was perfect. Lightly breaded and not ok heavy on the sauce. I had the filet for dinner with seeet maple mashed potatoes....I ordered my steak medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. Beautiful grill marks and melt in your mouth flavor. The potatoes were great as well. Friendly staff and fair prices. Highly recommend and I will go back.More

We stumbled upon this little gem while looking for a place to eat. The city had closed several roads in the area and allowed the restaurants to take up extra space outdoors. It was 90+ degrees outside, so we chose to eat inside the comfortable...air conditioned restaurant. The decor was fun to look at, roaring 20's themed. The waitress was fabulous and friendly and the food! The food was sooooo good! My husband raved about his sirloin in the wine sauce all night long! Another friendly lady came up and asked if I needed a box, but we explained that we were camping and unfortunately had no room in our cooler. She was so nice, my husband assumed she was the owner and she said she was "just the hostess". Well, she was a fine "just the hostess" and friendly and genuinely cared about the customers. We ultimately took my spaghetti with us that she carefully boxed up and gave us a ziplock bag to protect it in the cooler. I wound up eating it cold the next day and it was just as good! I'm glad she talked me into taking it! We found the owner and praised him on his restaurant, the food and the service. Excellent all around and next time we're in Bay City, we will for sure go back.More

Had dinner here tonight after shopping in town for the day. Found them through tripadvisor. Very happy with our dinner. The decor is fun and reminds you of an old speakeasy. Did see all servers wearing masks and tables were spaced apart as to social...distance properly. Had outdoor seating available too. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Hubby had filet, I had rib eye. Started with shrimp cocktail which was the only thing we weren't too impressed with. Shrimp was cooked well but had no flavor and was served almost warm like it had not been chilled at all. Steaks were cooked perfectly and sweet potatoe fries were delicious. Will say the kitchen needs to find the salt and pepper though. Everything from the shrimp cocktail, the steaks, and the fries all needed some S&P on them as they had no seasoning. Dinner came with salad and garlic bread. Two steak dinners with an appetizer plus to pops was $59 so not bad at all on price. Service was very friendly and empty plates were removed right away and drinks refilled without asking. I would recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner.More

Visited for Valentines Day 2020. Very friendlt staff. Not a bad wait even for a busy night. Waited at bar and had a few cocktails before dinner. Wife liked her Cosmo and the craft beer I had was good. Food was very good and we...just loved the historical aspect of this cool place. Wife absolutely loved the vegan menu options so much we treid to return on Sunday but they were closed. Will be a definite stop when we return to town.More

My steak was cooked really well. Service was very fast and friendly. Even in a Saturday night, didn’t have to wait for a table.

We sat at the bar rather than wait on a table to become available. We had draft beers and ate the daily special which was grilled grouper. The meal was excellent and priced good!

Went on a Saturday night. Quite busy but had a couple seats at the bar. Service from the bartender was great. The Key Largo Chicken was delicious.
