Nice clean place with very tasty Michigan fish served different ways. The restaurant gets busy at lunch on weekends but the staff is always very friendly.

We'd heard this was the place to go for fish so we had the lake perch. four little pieces with very little flavor other than the tarter sauce. The rest of our party was also disappointed

This friendly-family restaurant is easy to find, just a quarter mile off I-75, and a nicer alternative to nearby fast food options. I experienced excellent service and the prices were reasonable. Had the Reuben sandwich, but the menu was extensive and there were some creative options in addition to typical American fare. There is a full bar.

This was another random stop for us. Since it was 3:00 pm on a Monday afternoon, it wasn't busy at all. It's a clean place with lots of windows. The decor was nothing to rave about, but we were there for food! They had some nice specials posted, but we chose to share the chicken breast dinner. It was plenty... More

We stop over twice a year (from MN) to visit old friends and have the perch dinner. Been coming for years when visiting my parents who had lived across the street. Get dressed up or come casual we are welcomed in either way.

Whenever we visit Bay City, we have at least one meal at Berger's. The food is always great - especially their fish. The staff is very courteous, the prices are very reasonable and the place is always spotless. Two of my favorite dishes are their bluegill and German potato salad. Another plus is they are open late (11pm every night... More

We have only had one bad meal in the last 30 years and they made it good later (a month ago) Yes the portions are small and the prices have gone up over the years as have all other eating places, but still a great stop. The only thing that could be improved is the training of their wait staff.... More

I ordered grilled whitefish and steak fries, on the theory they'd most likely be freshly prepared, while hubby got breaded & fried cod and french fries. Lo-and-behold, mine was delicious, and his was mediocre. Incidentally, the coleslaw would be good if it weren't swimming in dressing, and the little white flour dinner roll transported me back in time to the... More

Stopped for dinner on a Saturday night. Looked promising from outside. A little sparse inside but, whatever. I had an oriental salad that was mediocre at best. Salad kind of glowed with excess oil andr chicken was burnt. Spouse's meal - Cod that was ordered grilled, tasted and appeared poached. Dressing that was ordered - on the side - was... More

Always a treat love the German potato salad.Service is very quick and polite. The potato salad reminds me of my grandmas. She would be 126 if she was still alive.
