Castaways

Reviewed By aruba11344

I have been to Castaways probably 6 times now. On one of my first visits I got your mojito which was delicious, many places don’t serve Mojitos because it’s hard to keep fresh mint leaves. Every time I start to crave a pizza and a good Mojito I come to castaways. Only problem is the last 3 times I have been here, no mint leaves and no Mojitos. Just take them off of your menu, it’s always such a disappointment. The Stromboli was great as always. Huge, nice crispy crust, filled with ham, bacon, pineapple, green peppers, and black olives. Would have gave 5 Stars but I’m tired of being disappointed

The River Rock Cafe

Reviewed By arubasally2017

This is a great little bar/restaurant in Bay City, with lively night life. I was surprised to find out that they were actually open for breakfast. Our group normally goes to another local establishment for breakfast, but we had heard good things about The River Rock Café, so we decided to try it. It was awesome and will be our new go-to spot for breakfast.

This place is okay, but nothing outstanding! We have tried most other places in Bay City and even though the reviews were not good we thought we would give it a try. I knew to expect greasy bar food and that's pretty much what they have got. Our waitress was very good. She was friendly and service was spot on. My only complaint would be that when she told me the sides that came with my chicken dinner, I thought one of the choices was baked potato and that's what I ordered. When she delivered the mail it look like a little cup of mashed potatoes with bacon sprinkled on top of it. She said it was a twice baked potato. She quickly realized my misunderstanding and offered me a substitution after she delivered the food. I got the Santa Fe chicken dinner and since I wasn't sure about the barbecue sauce I asked for it on the side. The chicken was good and had melted cheese on it and then I just cut it up and dipped it in the barbecue sauce. That dinner came with a salad and I got thousand Island dressing which was pretty good. My friend got a captain jacks fish sandwich with a side of potato salad. He seemed to enjoy his sandwich and he had such a large sandwich that he brought half home. He also enjoyed his potato salad and when he asked the waitress if it was fresh made in house she said "no it was made by Gordon's"!! Too bad - since she could've said they slaved over the kitchen for days since he enjoyed it so much but she kind of ruined the moment!!Where does the greasy bar food come into play ? You got a Santa Fe chicken dinner which you said was good. I am sorry for the mix up on the baked potato as we serve a twice baked potato that people really enjoy. Both not your typical greasy bar food. Sounds like your friend really enjoyed his meal also, plus you got great service. We do get our potato salad from Gordons but we just use it as a base and doctor it up. A 2 star review is a liitle harsh for an enjoyable meal with great service at an extremely fair price. Rick

Coonan's Irish Hub

Reviewed By visamastermichigan

A friendly neighborhood tavern with very good food. Six of us went for dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal, everything from salads to burgers to brats. I’ve heard the Irish stew is wonderful and will give it a try on another visit, and yes, there will be another visit. Fancy? Nope, not by a long shot, but if you want a good filling meal at a good price this is the place. Very friendly servers too. Good place.

My friends and I stopped by here during a bike ride just for drinks. The free appetizer popcorn provided was excellent along with the reasonably priced beer flight. Service was friendly and it took us to about the end of our stay to get the popcorn. High/low/bar and patio seating. Pretty loud due to Trivia night. I normally just get drinks when I come here but do recommended the flatbread if you’re hungry. I have and will return.We are glad you enjoyed everything, we'll see you next time!

American Kitchen

Reviewed By Nyormirror

Came here with my brother for the first time. He had the meatloaf and cheddar sandwich which he said was very good. Small portions. I had a glass of porter since beer flights were not available. Roughly about 11 craft beers on tap. Good service. Low/high top and bar seating with sidewalk patio. Limited menu but daily specials. A bit pricy. I could see it being loud if it was crowded. Limited street parking. I will return during one of their daily specials to give it another try.

Way to much fat and gristle in the meat. That was a severe disappointment for our customer. The asparagus was great as was the sautéed spinach. Service was adequate.

Old City Hall Restaurant

Reviewed By Brittany322

Bay city is a town that is a bit confusing, its going through changes in some areas, and others are completely desolate but could be a block over. This restaurant came recommended by the hotel. It wasn't terrible, but nothing to write home about or return to. Service was sub par, and food was ok. We split and entree and had to ask for sharing plates and silver. Very loud and pub feel from the main entrance with a long bar- I didnt walk into to the dining room so cant advise on that. Just ok.

A nice night out ruined by extremely unprofessional staffing. I have dined at many high quality places as you can see in all my trip advisor reviews. I give positive reviews many more times then negative. I do believe that Gatsbys takes the cake on this particular evening for worst waitressing ever. Foods good. Service (at times) is AWFUL. If you go, hopefully you catch everyone on a good day. Good luck. I apologize for your experience. I don't what could have happened as I have a very professional wait staff as can be seen by the many great reviews we have received. Many of my staff have been with me for the 17 years we have been open. I constantly have people come up to me and tell me what a friendly and great wait staff I have.

Latitude 43

Reviewed By aruba11344

My wife just had our first child three months ago so we have been sticking clearly to take out (out of curtsey to our fellow patrons) We enjoy supporting local businesses, especially our neighbor (my family owns Totally Clean LLC) Latitudes smoked prime rib is the best around. After a botched prime rib at another location we had the desire for a good prime rib so I grabbed two orders of Latitudes prime rib after work one Friday. There flavor is outstanding. The dry rub they use on the outside is great. I like separating the skin from the fat and cutting off tiny slivers off the outside skin and eating it with a nice piece of the prime rib. Probably not the best for me but, oh well it tastes awesome. Wether it be take out or dine in, Latitudes is our #1 pick in Bay City
