Kudos to Gatsby's for a job well done! Went there for a long overdue date night, and they sure didn't disappoint. Read a ton of reviews before we went, but even the best ones didn't prepare me for the experience I was about to have! Exceptional service, awesome atmosphere, great food/drink menu, and most importantly, stellar food! Obviously, this is... More

The food is good but I have never found something completely exceptional. The staff is very friendly. The food is pretty and quickly prepared.

I wish to thank you for your business but wonder what you are ordering ? Most people rave about our food as can be seen by other reviewers. Our filet, salmon new orleans and sirloin are exceptional to name a few. More

My first time here tonight. What a great experience. I had the salmon and it was the best I've had anywhere in the area. Cool theme. Great staff and service. One of my new favorites. I'll be coming back a lot more. Thank you.

My husband and I had reservations here for our anniversary. I was a little worried walking in the door because it seemed more like a bar than a restaurant. But there was a quiet booth set aside for us, and the meal was terrific. The steaks were perfectly cooked and the atmosphere was cozy. Our server Ann L was very... More

Timing is everything! Arrived and seated quickly. Restaurant became very busy with a little bit of a wait after our arrival. Ordered the Filet Mignon, wasn't disappointed. Waitress almost forgot our dessert but pulled through at the last minute. Good experience!

I thought the food was wonderful, had a fish sandwich and steak fries, very good. Also nice ambiance. The other person with me was not as happy with his burger, overcooked and had a smoke taste. I will be back, very happy with my lunch, can't wait to tell my hubby and bring him back for dinner.

Quiet pub with good food and friendly efficient staff. Reuben sandwich is excellent! My wife and I enjoy it's intimate nature, and when there for business lunches they have never disappointed. Wonderful salads too.

This was a nice surprise in a recent visit to Bay City. The food was very good pub-style fare (we had steak and potatoes). The steak was done to perfection, the potatoes were oven roasted and almost perfect (slightly underdone) and the salad was crisp and fresh. Great choice of beers! Our server was a positive little hurricane of brisk... More

I thank you for your business and wonderful review. Just wondering why you only gave me 4 stars instead of 5 which hurts my overall rating. I also wonder if you looked at the rest of the menu which features 10 steak options (items as Porterhouses, Ribeyes and Filet Mignon) and 10 seafood dinner selections (stuffed Flounder, Mahi Mahi, Salmon,...

Our food was all very good and we were delighted to get prompt service--even when the place was packed--so we could make it to the next film in the HHM film festival. Love the pea soup!
