Hats off to Wendy, owner of this well established venue in the heart of downtown Bay City. Just a short walk from the Doubletree hotel. Has a roaring twenties nostalgic feel.... vintage bar, white table cloths, nice wine list, delicious steaks. Very friendly and efficient staff! Hope to return in the future!

Great food at very reasonable prices. Thank you T.A. contributors for the reviews. My wife had a T-bone and I had the cajun salmon. Both were excellent and came with Salad and a side. Portions were just a little large but we managed to finish our plates. When in Bay city you have to go here, I will be back!... More

We do have a hostess who greets you promptly and takes your name down. The wait varies, there was a bowling tournament going on from out of town which was why we were busier than normal. We do take reservations up until 5:30 on weekends and any time during the week. Not sure how you got brown lettuce, that is... More

Didn't realize that the Bay City restaurant scene was so popular. We should have made reservations. We sat at the bar to wait for a table and the service was so great, we decided to just eat there. First time in eons that someone cooked my steak correctly on the first try. Yum!!

Kudos to Gatsby's for a job well done! Went there for a long overdue date night, and they sure didn't disappoint. Read a ton of reviews before we went, but even the best ones didn't prepare me for the experience I was about to have! Exceptional service, awesome atmosphere, great food/drink menu, and most importantly, stellar food! Obviously, this is... More

The food is good but I have never found something completely exceptional. The staff is very friendly. The food is pretty and quickly prepared.

I wish to thank you for your business but wonder what you are ordering ? Most people rave about our food as can be seen by other reviewers. Our filet, salmon new orleans and sirloin are exceptional to name a few. More

My first time here tonight. What a great experience. I had the salmon and it was the best I've had anywhere in the area. Cool theme. Great staff and service. One of my new favorites. I'll be coming back a lot more. Thank you.

My husband and I had reservations here for our anniversary. I was a little worried walking in the door because it seemed more like a bar than a restaurant. But there was a quiet booth set aside for us, and the meal was terrific. The steaks were perfectly cooked and the atmosphere was cozy. Our server Ann L was very... More

Gatsby's Seafood & Steakhouse is owned and operated by Rick Revette. The Revette family is well known for owning restaurants for the past 75 years. Mr. Revette also owns Mulligans Pub downtown another Bay City favorite for 27 years. You will see Rick running around serving food, washing glasses and bussing tables most day and nights. He is committed to serving quality food at a very reasonable price and making sure everyone has an enjoyable time. The atmosphere is warm and inviting with the turn of the century brick walls and soft accent lighting. It is tastefully decorated in a Roaring Twenties theme.
