I grew up in Bay City and GTs is a staple. My favorites: steak sandwich and wop salad. Get it every time I’m home. It IS the taste of home.

I have frequented Grandpa Tony's for over 30 years being a BCC grad and going there after events and for special occasions. They are known for their steak sandwiches and desserts. Tonight I shared a steak sandwich supreme (grilled with sauce on the side) and...baked spaghetti. The steak sandwich was very good but noticeably smaller then in the past. The baked spaghetti was not layered with light sauce and very little meat. I would not get it again. Service is good. Prices are on the higher side. Table and booth seating. Lot and street parking. I have and will return but they took a step back in the review this time.More

They got my order wrong when I was waiting there just before they closed after a long day I had. Didn’t think it could be wrong since I was the only person in there. So when I got home I had a completely different order....I call back and told them it was wrong and they would deliver my order to me since I only lived about 5 blocks away. When I sat down to finally eat what I thought I ordered it was wrong again. Of course they could not fix it since they were closed. The lady said that I could order my order and they would deliver it at my convenience. Well I did call placed my order but they said they would not deliver it that I would have to pay. They have been getting very bad at their service and our family and some friends said the same thing and no longer go there. The worst part is it doesn’t seem to matter to them and the customer is treated with terrible disrespect. Never going back. Hope others stand their ground and stop patronizing them. Maybe the message will be loud and clear when their business dies. Which it almost did before because of their poor service.More

Where else do you go for classic pizza and italian food, not a chain...you to Grampa Tony's. Amost every time I get back to BC we go to Gramp Tony's or get take out meatballs and sauce. The 4 brothers and two wives were debating...on where to go... Well the youngest, and the driver..ME...said we are going to Grampa Tony's. Good crust on pizza and Calzones and great portions and a reasonable price. It's the right answer to what's for dinner and not a chain resturaunt.More

Food was ok. Lots of tomato sauce and some cheese. Fries were great. Ate those without hesitation. Steak sandwich left a lot to be desired. Service was good. Restaurant seemed clean.

My wife had sangria which was very fruity and full of flavor. She had pork chops which were nicely cooked and moist. Sides were good. Portions were large. I had steak sandwich. Marinara sauce was excellent, very old school. Onion rings were nice and crisp....Service was good and prices were reasonable.More
