As a local, I highly recommend Cranes in the City. The staff is fantastic and the food is great. And let's not forget what Cranes is known for: PIE! Also the cider donuts are excellent. I highly recommend this cute little place.

Crane's is unofficially the official place to go for delicious pies .... Especially the cherry, blueberry and apple. They also have sugar-free pies if you are diabetic. Crane's has several locations and you should also try their country barn location outside if Holland in the way to Sagatauk.

Stopped in here for lunch and the food was great! While standing in line to order, one of the girls working had a friend come in behind us and decided to take her order before ours.

The whole family liked the food, the music, the homey place settings and table. The stuffed pepper soup was good.

My family and I stopped in to Crane's to get the kids some ice cream and was blown away by their wonderful treats. The raspberry chocolate icecream was delicious. Kind of like a black cherry, but raspberry. My wife had apple pie with vanilla ice cream. It was one of the best pieces of pie she has ever had. Though... More

The City Salad was wonderful as was the asparagus soup. I have duplicated the salad at home and the mixture of flavors is just wonderful. I recommend the poppyseed dressing.

When we travel to Saugatuck or Holland, MI we make Cranes a must stop for their apple pie. They make a apple butter bread that is fantastic made into french toast!

I'am a local here! I live 5 mins. from here so this place in the Fall time is very tempting. I had the apple sandwich I forget the full name of it, but it was very good! The apple cider and doughnuts are a big hit here at Cranes and at their orchards. Friendly staff and lots of good food... More
