Stopped by for a drink and something to eat. Got my drink and asked for a menu, and then was never contacted again. Beer went dry and they never asked if I wanted to order. 20 minutes sat at the bar and there were 3 girls working but some how they never noticed or spoke to me. Was there between... More

The Bier Garten is a great place to meet up with friends for dinner and drinks or just a quick bite to eat. Very good fried pickles!

Nice little bar with friendly atmosphere and a pretty good burger and fries! Just down from the Bay City State Park and near shopping.

Unfortunately the owner of this place has passed away unexpectedly. And the wait staff and cook failed to keep up with the high standards that this place had in the past. We, have been in twice in the last month and it was worse last night than it was three weeks ago. I would not recommend this place at this... More

Close to gas stations, other restaurants, shopping. Mixed drinks, beer on tap, wine. Not fancy, old building, pretty good service.. Enjoyed club sandwich and french fries.... More

Stopped in here after a long drive to Bay City and found the food very good and the service great. It's nothing fancy but the chili dog is great and the beer is cold.

Good dinner with friends and almost half the price. You can use the certificate from Restaurant.com. We had a $25 certificate that I paid $5 for. You can use it for Food and Alcohol. Your bill needs to be $50 or more to use and they will also add a 18% tip. I add some more when the service is... More

I'm not really understanding the "Best Burger in Bay City" reviews. It was mediocre at best . . . There were only 3 other tables yet we were treated like it was a packed house and generally ignored. The burger was okay-ish, and my chicken sandwich was some weird minced chicken patty thing (remember school lunches?) and really pretty gross.... More

I had lunch today with friends. The food was excellent and service was very good. The burgers are so big that my Sister and I split an Olive burger and fries. You get plenty of food for your money. Another friend had Clam Chowder which is always good. They make homemade soups fresh daily.

Nice, small but not too small, great wait staff and good bar food make this a great stop for lunch or dinner. Salads are yummy too!
