Recently ate at Berger's on two separate occasions with family. The beer selection is pretty poor if you like anything other than big name domestic products. No local or other craft brew options. Food is mostly good with a number of options reflecting the german influence of the restaurant. The pickled cow tongue and german potato salad are excellent. Also had nacho's and the Steak Sandwich, both of which were very good. The perch dinner seems to be something they spend a lot of time talking about, but I found it to be too expensive for the portion size and of poor quality compared to other places. The pie's are also excellent and worth saving room for. Overall there are a lot of great food options and if you are in the area and want to avoid chain restaurants, give this place a shot.

This place has definitely slipped. The food was just OK. Perch is still pretty good but the portions are smaller and the price has increased. Typical. Years ago this was a great place to go. Now it is just typical and mediocre. Too bad.

What a great lunch the four of us had today. A Reuben sandwich with Home-Made (!) sauerkraut. Thick onion soup. Fajita salad falling off the plate. And fresh blueberry cobbler to share. And a server who was attentive to our every move. So glad we stopped in Bay City to enjoy this family restaurant.

Excellent food, prices okay very clean, staff seems very pleasant fish was very good, we like it cause it is family owned. Portions are ok. Appetizers not a large portion so a family of 4 needs to order two appetizers. That's the only complaint. Restrooms very clean.
