Food was good but service wasn't.

Loved the menu options but we waited 45 minutes for our food. Had to send our steak back because it was undercooked.

Happened upon Chequers on a beautiful late winter day, mainly because I had to use the restroom! I'm glad we did. Honestly it was the friendliest place we encountered on our weekend trip to Saugatuck. Two bartenders behind the bar, both very talkative and attentive, but not in an irritating way. Cold, cold beer on tap. Great chicken quesadilla (surprised!).... More

I was here about 8 months ago and was not that impressed. Decided to grab a Groupon and try it again. I had the chicken pot pie and my guy had the fish and chips (a previous reviewer said to ask for it crispy) - which he did and they nailed it. Atmosphere is nice, staff is friendly. Very glad...

We were the only diners there, could have been the fact that it was 10 degrees out and everything was covered in snow. Used a Groupon and we had a wonderful lunch. Very friendly young lady waited on us and I loved the pub décor. I bet it gets quite full and fun when the weather is warmer.

Chequers is our go-to place for a nice kick-back, relaxing meal guaranteed to be well above average. We've never been disappointed in 20 years of going there. A full pint of Bass ale tops off the dinner nicely.

We had lunch here one afternoon and was very pleased. Good food with good portions. The price was reasonable and we would eat here again if we visit the area in the future.

Second year for our fall lunch at Checquers and the weather was perfect for warming up with their fabulous Guinness stew and fried pickles. Didn't hit the Bloody Mary bar this time but if you like to concoct your own, they put out a good spread. The fish and chips are a good choice as well. It is a little... More

Food, drinks and service were very good. Courteous wait staff. Ambiance was very nice. We used a Groupon. It was quite surprising when the bill included a little over a 21% tip on the "whole" amount. We were planning on tipping on the "whole" amount anyway, but felt adding over 21% upfront was being a little pushy. The Groupon didn't... More

My date and I traveled two hours to have lunch here. The service and atmosphere were great. The food was high priced and low quality and quantity. I tried the trio appetizer with their signature Shepard's pie, English beef stew and a chicken stew. There was approximately 1/2 of a cup (or less) of each for $20. The stew's were... More

I was sucked in by their advertisement of a new menu, home delivery, and new changes. It was in the local paper so it seemed legitimate. When I arrived and asked about the new menu I was told it wasn't ready yet. So why splash it in the paper? The home delivery never came to pass either. What I decided... More
