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.

I'm not from around here so perhaps my expectations were too high. Service was fine. Appetizers: wings were boring, little flavor and not extra crispy as requested. Entrees: Burger was average. I had the fried seafood combo and was disappointed that most of what was on the plate was almost certainly frozen from a bag. Oysters are not my thing... More

Been here approximately 7-8 times. Our absolutely favorite restaurant. We believe it is worth traveling 45 minutes one way and crossing state lines to eat here. Excellent and varied menu. Good wine list and frequent special wine introductions. The service is wonderful. The servers have great personality and are articulate, intelligent, witty and possess professionalism beyond compare. Prices are reasonable.... More

After returning to the area after a lapse of 13 years I decided to celebrate my birthday with my family at Bay City. In the past it was a favorite. The decor has remained nautical and not much has changed.The restaurant was clean and the waitress was very accommodating and friendly. My imperial crab cake was delicious but I was... More

This place used to be the best fine dining in Hanover. Not so much anymore. I will say the salmon montecarlo is still great.. But steaks are hit or miss. Good for lunch.

First visited when touring Gettysburg, returned to take Mom for Mother's day. Nice variety on the menu for seafood lovers and non-seafood lovers. Father got a ham steak he liked, mother a chicken dish she liked, and my wife and I each had a broiled seafood platter, which was very good. Main dining room area is rather small and can... More

I have almost given up on finding decent seafood in Hanover. Sometimes I decide to give something a try and usually end up regretting it big time, but one day I stopped off here at lunch. Whadda surprise! Ordered a single crab cake platter. Came with a lovely selection of fresh veggies, that were perfectly seasoned and a salad which... More

My customers recommend this place. They are to have a very good Caesar Salad. I had the Imperial Crab Cake in which I never received my Side Salad in less the few greens that came out with my dish was supposed to have been the salad? So, I got one Crab Cake which was delicious and a very small bowl... More

I am sorry you didn't have a good experience at our establishment. I certainly don't like to hear that. The dish you ordered is not served with a "side salad" unless you would have ordered that as your one vegetable. It is served with dressed salad greens which is simple baby field greens with lemon juice and salt and pepper... More
