Decent barbecue. Green beans were fresh. Nice servers. Hate the decor. Go with people you like to look at.

Very vegetarian kid friendly spot, small, not too crowded even on a busy day. Waitress joked around with the kids w some ketchup bottle gags. Sandwich & chips kinda place. Great spot to take a breather from shopping.

We chose to sit outside on the sidewalk (it was a beautiful morning), but would have been just as happy indoors surrounded by their campy memorabilia. Service was good, and food was excellent. French toast was amazing, and my husband loved his omelet with spicy Italian sausage.

The atmosphere is super cute and reminiscent of a 1950s mod setting with lots of Marilyn Monroe (hence the name) memorabilia. Service was good and staff was friendly, but it was overpriced and the food was "just ok." The seven people in my party all ordered something different and we weren't impressed with anything...

We love stopping here for lunch when we are in town. The Boursin sandwich is the best. We always get great service and good food.

We stopped by for a late breakfast. The server was very attentive. My wife and I both enjoyed our breakfast entrees. Interesting nostalgic decor with a Marilyn Monroe theme but not overdone. The Ed Norton cutout is excellent. We will return for another visit the next time we are visiting Saugatuck.

Areal variety for meat and vegetarian dishes. Brought water out for the dogs and even had a separate menu for doggie meals!

was okay but expensive. I had bacon, eggs and homefries. No toast. One cup of coffee-ran about 12.00. At home in Ohio, that is about 7.00 so it was a bit on the price side for breakfast.

This place has a nice atmosphere. It's a diner and looks like it. Nothing fancy but it was clean which isn't always true in a diner. They have a couple of tables outside but the temperature said to eat indoors. We were greeted immediately and sat. The waitress came over right away to take drink orders (They have Pepsi, not...
