“We love this place”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I eat here probably too much, but we live in Bay City very nearby and it is the nicest place to sit outside to eat in Bay City and the food is good, and I think the food is a good value. We like to go year round as the service is always excellent, there is a full bar, and they are always willing make adaptations to the meals for fussy eaters like me. There are options for different budgets, from a burger, salad, or soup and sandwich, or to a full four course meal. Everything we have there is good and priced very comparable to many lesser restaurants in the area. We often bring company or family and they always like it as well. We recently were waited on by Melissa and she was excellent. Sherry is also one of our favorites. I like in part that it tends to be a more low key crowd and not the big loud drinking crowd at some of the other downtown restaurants. It is a much more relaxing atmosphere. I cannot say enough nice things about the people that work there, including the management. We eat there a lot and love it, but a few times we didn't like something or something wasn't quite right, and they go overboard to fix it for us.

“Thanks for a great 4th of July”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Thanks to Melissa and Kara we had an awesome 4th of July.
Service was excellent, drinks were great (1st time husband ever drank a daiquiri -virgin) and dinner and the fireworks show amazing. Loved the Shrimp and Grits, and the Apple Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream incredible. We'll be back!

“Great place with great food”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Had a great lunch at the Riverfront Grille while on a site visit at the Doubletree. Our server, Melissa M., was excellent and very helpful. Had the Black and Blue Beef and the Brisket Mac & Cheese. Both were very good.
