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...More

Nice little local cafe. Very friendly service. We had the steak sandwich and bbq chicken sandwich. Both were very tasty and hot when served. They serve Pepsi products and a varied menu of alcohol products, including wine. We would visit again if in the area.

Stopped for lunch. Wife had the goulash I had the world famous BLT. 20 beers on draft. My sandwich was awesome. Goulash needed sauce, to dry. Not a lot of flavor. Good salad and garlic bread.

Food was fine. We had the fried perch that was lightly battered so you could actually enjoy the fish. My son had the chicken fingers and they were pretty average. Fries were good. Service was quick and efficient with helpful waitress.

They have perch and wall-eye every Friday, both are good. They also have other specials and good eats. Examples are nachos, tacos, burgers, steak sandwich, and turkey meals. The servers have all been working there a long time and that says a lot. They are...More
