Excellent little restaurant. Food very good. However do not bother with the jalapeño popper app those were disappointing. That's why only a 4... everything else was really good.

The chocolate chip cookies and the cannoli are the consensus favorites. The salad had a generous amount of toppings and came with both a container of ranch and Grampa Tony's signature red Italian dressing. Friendly delivery to our plant.

I grew up in Essexville and often went to Grandpa Tony's, loving the pizza. Over the years, when I come back home, I ALWAYS try to eat there. I am never disappointed, no matter what I eat!

I know, there are two restaurants in Bay City. The one visited last night for Girls Night and had a wonderful dinner. It was a small group, just 4, not the usual. But we had a very good meal and enjoyed talking and catching up....More

The chicken Alfredo has a delicious Parmesan sauce with fork tender chicken strips and perfectly cooked broccoli. The nachos are surprisingly good, better than many Mexican restruants offerings. Parking is sparse so you may need to walk a little ways to get to good food....More
