We were staying at the Doubletree for a wedding so had breakfast in the Riverfront Grille two mornings. We thought the buffet was a bit pricey so we ordered off the menu. I had the basket of pastries the first morning- loved it!!! There was a muffin, two croissants, and two other pastries. The next morning, I had eggs, bacon, hash browns & toast- also, very good. There were alot of us, several tables had to be pushed together. The waitress was great, especially considering how many of us were there.

Hosted a family dinner at the Riverfront Grille and was absolutely satisfied by the server, the quality of food and the quantity of food. From the moment we sat down until we left about 2 hours later it was a wonderful meal. The attention to detail my Sam your server and also the other staff members was excellent. The food was served hot and exactly how it was requested to be served. It was a most exceptional meal made even better by the service and the staff.

Twenty of us had dinner on the patio in early July....great service. Salmon was perfectly prepared. Large umbrellas kept us shaded from the sun. Nice view of the riverfront.

Wife and I were lucky to find cancellation at this hotel last night with all hotels in Bay City full. Had breakfast before departing and it was just as good as last time. Breakfast quesadilla was terrific, and basket of pastries excellent. Our server Mchelle was just outstanding, a very pleasant person to deal with. This is one of best hotel restaurants I know of.

The Double Tree is a very nice hotel, but i usually don't expect much from in-house dining in a chain hotel. The Riverfront Grille was a pleasant surprise in that regard. We ate dinner there one night. I had a really nice pork shank with a mild Asian marinade, served on a bed of polenta. My wife had a well-grilled piece of salmon served on a bed of salad. Both very well prepared and more imaginative than I would have thought. Portions are very generous. The wine list was not bad, either. Service was very attentive and cheerful. Plus, the breakfast bar in the mornings is far better than average hotel fare.
