Great ribs!

We've always enjoyed this family diner. We wish they had a liquor license but their to-go orders are well packaged. We also wish they'd bring back their outstanding "onion ring loaf" which was out of this world. Please?

I dine here often, mostly for breakfast and am never disappointed. The servers are always prompt, thorough and friendly. I bring friends all the time. Highly recommended.

I had the grilled cheese and chili - very tasty! Marilyn Monroe was every where and had a very old diner look.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. The food (pot pie) was amazing and the service was prompt and friendly. A great place for a quick bite if you're visiting Saugatuck.

Food awful and service slow with a side of grumpy. Boiled egg squishy and french toast was just a grilled slice of bread bread. Will not be returning!

We had a great breakfast at Monroe's Cafe-Grill. We each had something different to eat and we loved everything we ate.

A great place to eat breakfast. The interior design was interesting and pleasing, and the food was excellent. The view of the river out of the front window was a plus.

I had the best garlic bread here I have every had! The service was great and all three of us had great dishes. Two vegan dishes that were awesome and one salad that my sister said was the best she ever had. We would go back.
