This was steps away from Wenonah Park, so we thought we'd try it for dinner before watching the sunset. Glad we did. Dinner was great. Portions are big. It was a little loud, but atmosphere was cool. You can sit inside (if you want A/C)...More

Gatsby's Seafood & Steakhouse is owned and operated by Rick Revette. The Revette family is well known for owning restaurants for the past 75 years. Mr. Revette also owns Mulligans Pub downtown another Bay City favorite for 27 years. You will see Rick running around serving food, washing glasses and bussing tables most day and nights. He is committed to serving quality food at a very reasonable price and making sure everyone has an enjoyable time. The atmosphere is warm and inviting with the turn of the century brick walls and soft accent lighting. It is tastefully decorated in a Roaring Twenties theme.
