Considering I did not order seafood in a seafood restaurant I am aware that my review is not based on their specials. The place is neat and the staff is great. However I found my chopped steak to be lacking and the gravy or the fries leaving an aftertaste. My wife enjoyed her shrimp salad sandwich. It would be better... More

Service was great... there were 9 of us and some liked certain dishes better than the others. But overall everyone was satisfied. The seafood was good.. but veggies (asparagus) was over cooked and mushy.

Bay City Restaurant was good. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The food was good. We were not rushed and the price was very reasonable.

I was very unsatisfied with the service..the food was over cooked, almost cold when served. When calling the manager I got told off and not to return if I was not happy. I feel no one should be treated with such disrespect. She was rude and actually called me a liar..if I was looking for a good seafood restaurant I... More

I did tell this person not to return to the restaurant. I have a folder an inch thick on this "customer". She comes to the restaurant, or she says she does, and then waits at least a week to call and complain about her food or service; sometimes the call has been as long as a month later! She has...

We come to Hanover every year for a bowling tournament. This was the first time that we have eaten at this restaurant. We went to dinner with a group of 10. The waitress was friendly and attentive. We had one problem with a meal (a steak was overcooked). When my friend brought this up to the waitress, she right away... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your service at my establishment. You were not clear what you didn't like about the food. I will have to disagree with you on our food not being homemade or bought fresh. With the exception of a few appetizers, everything in our establishment is made in house, including our own BBQ sauce, Blue Cheese and Ranch... More

Stopped in Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Crab soup was very good, sampler was good also. The big disappointment was my bacon burger. It was badly overcooked. I asked for medium and came out well. The good thing was that it was juicy so i was able to eat it. The waitress confirmed the overcooking and gave me dessert on... More

My boyfriend and I decided to grab dinner here one Friday night. We got seated right away! Our server was great, always there if we needed something. We ordered the calamari which was delicious! We both ordered the perfect couple meals. Great deal! We will return!

We usually get crab cakes or crab melts. Never disappointed. They are served on a pretzel roll which is delicious.

I work in Hanover and this was the first time I ate here. I love seafood and enjoy cooking seafood and had high hopes, but those hopes were not realized. I have had better quality seafood at a diner I go to. Although this place has a good reputation I was really disappointed.

Thank OBX717
