My wife and I went to this restaurant because it was "Brianna" week. This means anyone with this name eats for free! This crazy special pulled us in but the great food keeps us coming back for more and there wine selection is to die for! I truly recommend a visit to this hidden gem!

Lots of GF options, besides salads! Excellent tomato blue cheese soup & grilled cheese sandwich on GF bread! My non-GF husband had the prime rib sandwich & FF. No GF beer available, just GF ciders & cocktails. Old brick decor revealed in the historic downtown location. Very impressed!

We went to Old City Hall for our ten year wedding anniversary in February 2017. We had an amazing experience. The service was excellent. The food was great. They do accept reservations, we did not have any but we were seated immediately. It is much bigger on the outside, we were very surprised how much space there was inside. We... More

Don't let the poorly designed website fool you! This was a fun evening. Food was very good. The "fries" or garlic herb roasted fingerling potatoes as they are called are by far the best "fries" I have ever had. The service was ok. (My wife wanted ketchup and the waitress didn't show herself for a very long time). Had a... More

Anniversary night, never been to Bay City. We made reservations, which I am glad we did. Upon arrival the bar (entrance) was packed, all tables and bar were full. We waited about 10 minutes before being seated. The inner walls of the restaurant are brick, the original structure which is unique. The menu has a nice selection, but we opted... More

This is a nice old downtown building that has been made into a restaurant. The food is good and you can get great sandwiches or delicious dinner. They also have a good selection of beer and wine. When I want to celebrate something special or just shopping downtown Bay City, I like to go here. They also have a room... More

We go to this restaurant because of a quality staff, at the table, behind the bar, and in the kitchen. Consistency is a "lock in word" for the meals here. I always know when I order something it will be prepared with the same quality meat and vegetables and I will be satisfied. I have used them for business, weddings,... More
