Bath City Bistro Restaurant Review: The lively atmosphere of this brick-walled spot makes it much more a brasserie than a bistro, but semantics aside, the restaurant, which features Belgian trough bowling (the only spot for this ancient sport besides Detroit’s Cadieux Café), is a welcome destination in the revived downtown of the old city of Mount Clemens: Bath City. The building on a brick-paved street with vintage street lamps was completely renovated to house a high-ceilinged dining room, and an adjoining cozy bar with a blazing fireplace. The varied menu includes steamed mussels, steak and chicken fajitas. We suggest the lightly breaded perch sautéed with lemon, Greek salad, onion rings and freshly made potato chips (called cottage fries). Check out the weekly specials, too. The proprietors, three women who have known each other since the fifth grade, are hands-on restaurateurs. Happy hour is from 3 p.m.- 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, when drinks are $1 off, martinis go for $5 and $2 gets you Bud, Michelob and Miller products; appetizers are $10 for two.
