We like some things on the menu but live in Douglas and are tired of the same limited menu. Last time we ere there we had to eat at a high top in the bar and our short blonde server was so rude we almost left. People are crazy to wait in line, its not worth it they are just... More

We spent one night in Douglas on a last minute trip to lake Michigan and had lunch at Everyday People. They offer a brunch with bottomless champagne or bloody Mary's so we had muscles/oysters and had some champagne. It gets pretty busy so you will most likely have to wait and walk around the small city until they call you... More

The proprietor of our B&B steered us to this place, and it didn't disappoint. It was quite busy on a Monday night, but we got a nice table outside. Food and service were terrific and a nice improvement over some of the tourist fare in nearby Saugatuck. Make this a must visit for those headed to Saugatuck/Douglas.

We had driven past this restaurant many times and decided one night to go for dinner. The outside and name are pretty ordinary, but as soon as you step inside - it all means nothing. We were greeted warmly and sat at the bar for 30 minutes while we waited for our table. We agreed we would sit outside in... More

This restaurant had the best Bloody Mary bar. And our group of women tried many in the area. The tuna was to die for! Service was great. For the comment that the food varies. Food does vary. Whether something is in season, whether who the cook is. I go to many of my favorites and there is some variation some... More

Always an interesting menu with local fare. Be prepared to wait though in season. Food has been inconsistent at times for all the kudos received by professional reviews. Great wine list.

I have visited the Saugatuck-Douglas area of Michigan many times. I return to one restaurant and never fail to be amazed. That one is the Everyday People Cafe. Don't let the name fool you. This is a class act. Owner chef Matt Balmer and his partner Margaret Droz know how to excite and at the same time make you feel... More

We recently stayed at the Sea Suites B&B, which is only a 5 minute walk away. We asked for their recommendation for a place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. They recommended "Everyday People Cafe". The name is misleading. It is anything but 'everyday'. We were there for the 5:30 opening and we're seated quickly. Our waiter, Michael, was great... More

Our meal was good, a bit too salty but that is probably because I use very little salt myself. I had the salmon and my Mom had the crab cake. Both were good but just good, I was expecting excellent because of all the hype. Would I go back? Perhaps if someone I was with really wanted to go there.... More

I've been going to Everyday for over 10 years, I've been there probably 30 times, have never been disappointed. The menu is constantly changing, specials are always imaginative and a delight. Yes there are items on the menu I wish they would bring back (the polenta with mushroom's was to die for) The ONLY negative - they don't take reservations.
