Oh No! I am so sorry to hear about your recent experience. I don't know why our staff did not acknowledge you. It definitely sounds like there was a major mix up and I am terribly sorry that we did not execute well at all....More

$17 for breakfast buffet!! Certainly DO NOT get your money's worth. Worst buffet we have ever been to. Cold scrambled eggs, greasy bacon, not much selection of breakfast items. One would think, for the price, there would be "everything but the kitchen sink" on their...More

Food, service and ambiance are all excellent. Outside patio is a great outdoor experience. The Bay City river walk is a great addition to the city.

We didn't have a meal at the Riverfront Grille - the dinner menu is a little pricey - lunch is a good option. Lovely spot beside the river where we enjoyed our drink and appetizer.

Very friendly waitstaff and perfect service. Our lunches were delicious and the view on the patio was spectacular on a warm, sunny afternoon. We plan to make a special trip in the fall and order dinner.

The Riverfront Grille in the DoubleTree Hotel in Bay City is the BEST hotel restaurant I have ever been in. And I travel a lot. The food was excellent - the service great. A good selection and all our meals were delicious.
