Former Bay City Mayor, Mike Buda had high praise for the new restaurant. "The food is fabulous!" Buda said.

Lumber Barons' Menu offers entrees From The Butcher Shop, Fish & Seafood, Soups & Salads,a Children's Menu and appetizers such as Escargot, Shrimp Cocktail, Wild Mushroom Bisque and much more. Gift certificates are also available and will be available for the upcoming Holiday.

Lumber Barons' has made many changes including the addition of the popular, Martini and Cigar Bar, called "The Stables" and has become a favorite social gathering place for Lumber Barons' visitors. The Stables has many TVs and even a big screen viewing area.

Much of the unique decorating at Lumber Barons' has been done by Penny Warner of Banana Bay Imports who says "It's not quite done yet," Warner said, proudly. "We still have more to do."

Trisha Peters is the Banquet Manager. One of the banquet rooms overlooksthe Saginaw River with a beautiful view of the, River of Lights . According to Peters, the banquet facility is the perfect setting for weddings, holiday parties and business conferences. Call Trisha at 891-0100 for reservations.

Buda exclaims, "Bay City needed this place; it's like the anchor of Historic Midland Street. Its great to see what Art did with the horse stables. The Stables are perfect forthe Cigar Room because it has the extra ventilation system that was needed for the stables. "
