The pizza is amazing and made movie night with the grandchildren extra special. The breadstick seem to never make it home so we will have to order double next time!

Brooklyn Boyz Pizza

Reviewed By Reggaewanderer - Hale, Michigan

The atmosphere is fantastic. The service was even better (Danielle). Our pizza was excellent...garlic knots, salads and calamari were all above average. It is by far the best pizza in the entire Great Lakes Bay Region. We can't wait to go back.Thank you for your lovely note. I so appreciate you taking the time to share your experience at Brooklyn Boyz in Bay City!

Latitude 43

Reviewed By aruba11344 - Bay City, Michigan

Me and my fiancé have been wanting Latitudes smoked Prime Rib for awhile now but with both of our busy schedules sometimes is hard to get out and about. Friday February 9th it snowed quite a bit so we thought we would be able to get in and out quickly without having to wait to long. We figured others would stay in due to the weather. We were wrong! Latitude was just as busy as ever. We had a short wait and then were seated about 7 45 pm. After taking our drink orders the waitress returned and asked what we would like for dinner. Both of us said that we would like the prime rib. Our waitress informed us there was a large party they were waiting to finish ordering to see if there would be enough for us. Really? It should be first come first served. I was starting to wonder if my money wasn’t green enough for these people or something. We let the waitress know the only reason we came to latitudes was for the prime rib. She left and talked to a manager and after a few minutes returned to let us know they would be able to get us both the prime rib. Nice. While we waited we decided to order some calamari. About ten minutes later a female manager, taller, brownish hair, maybe late twenties to thirty came over to our table and explained due to some miscommunication our meal was going to be ready very soon. Not exactly sure why (but we had not even gotten our salads or appetizer yet) She apologized and immediately, without me asking, offered to comp our appetizer. That is smart thinking!!! She turned a negative into a positive for me real quick. That’s what your supposed to do. Make the customers dining experience a good one. If you make a mistake find a way to make it better. An “I’m sorry” only goes so far. But free calamari rings, that puts a smile on your face. So many restaurants could care less now days. I’m sorry I forgot your name but good job young lady. Either your a smart girl or was trained well. Maybe a bit of both. Our prime rib turned out awsome. Calamari rings were very good, and a nice amount of them. Easily enough for 4 people. Both our margaritas were good. We ended up having an awsome evening

Lucky's Steak House

Reviewed By dnrdavies - Midland,Mi.

We recently had a family Christmas get together here. My wife and I shared the 20 oz Porterhouse steak. It came with 2 sides. We had a salad and the fries. The salad was very fresh. The steak was cooked as ordered and was excellent. Others in our group had the sirloin steak, the ribs and the prime time. Everyone was satisfied with what they ordered. Service was very good. The only negative was the that our table was located right near the doorway which had lots of traffic.

I had a perch dinner takeout with friends on Friday. The perch were small and lightly battered, but were good along with the baked potato. The breadstick was undercooked and the coleslaw was runny. I also consider $14.99 on the high side compared to other area perch meals available. I probably will return since I have heard good things but just won’t get the perch.

American Kitchen

Reviewed By 207alba9 - Michigan

Always good casual food. A limited menu- all very good. I had the Salmon Burger with some ? sauce on lettuce with sweet potato fries instead of French fries. And wish I'd had a beer! The burger was scrumptious. I mentioned it the next day to friends. They'd had it before and agreed. Servers are friendly. AK is small, modern, but oh, great good.

Reviewed By Chrisjim32 - Michigan

Reservations are recommended. The food was good, not spectacular but certainly better than Red Lobster. Beautiful place right on the river so it was pleasant. I don't recommend the bloody mary, it was awful but the lobster linguine was good and had plenty of it. Hubby had the seared scallops and he said they were very tasty. He got the blue cheese cole slaw and said he wouldn't order again. So over all the food was decent, the ambiance was nice but the prices were ridiculous. It was 104.00 for the two of us without the tip. We each had a bloody mary, 3 oysters, and our entree. If it had been outstanding, I would have given a 5 but between the price and food being average, I thought a 4 was more appropriate.

The food was delicious!! We had a buffet set-up at work and all the different options were great. Beef tips, chicken, lasagna, mashed potatoes, corn, fruit salad with huge blueberries and salad.

The people that delivered the food helped set it up and took it back down.

Hosted a family dinner at the Riverfront Grille and was absolutely satisfied by the server, the quality of food and the quantity of food. From the moment we sat down until we left about 2 hours later it was a wonderful meal. The attention to detail my Sam your server and also the other staff members was excellent. The food was served hot and exactly how it was requested to be served. It was a most exceptional meal made even better by the service and the staff.
