Went in for breakfast and was highly disappointed. Perhaps this was just an off incident? Service was very slow and they appeared understaffed.

Had lunch, very tasty and good food. Friendly service, and good atmosphere. All the lunch prices are quite reasonable, and a good selection of sandwiches, soups and salads, also some specials.

The Riverfront Grill in the DoubleTree in downtown Bay City is a wonderful spot for breakfast - or probably any other meal. My experience has been mostly breakfast/brunch on Sunday morning. The service has always been attentive and pleasant. The food quality top notch. Of course the view of the Saginaw River is pleasant.

The food is great tasting although a bit pricey. If you're looking for a nice "date" night place or a special place to get together with your friends, this is the place for you. It is right on the riverfront so you can go for a lovely stroll after you dine if you wish.

On a recent stay in Bay City, and at the DoubleTree, we had to eat at the Riverfront Grille because literally every other bar and restaurant within walking distance was clogged to the gills with revelers of the annual Wine Walk. Luckily, the hotel kept its restaurant open and made the Wine Walk participants enjoy the patio. We enjoyed a... More

Expensive for a cooking without any the originality that we can expect in a such restaurant. Service was terrible. The waitress brought the main course while first course was not ended.

We were staying at the Doubletree and decided to have dinner in the hotel. We went down about quarter to 5 and the restaurant wasn't open yet so we went into the lounge. Nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. Menu was probably more limited than the restaurant but my wife and I had enough choices. She had the Quesadilla and it... More

Good fresh salad. Great soup. Beef was just right. Breakfast was done perfectly (not everyone gets eggs Benedict right). Don't hesitate to eat there.
