Great place

The food, service and atmosphere all are great. The Salmon, grilled and over a salad is the best dinner going, both for the calories and cost. Ask for Richard

Since moving to the Saugatuck-Douglas area last Fall, Hercules has become our favorite restaurant. Food is outstanding, service impeccable and the camaraderie engaging. Had the shrimp three days ago it was deveined as it was last week etc... Shrimp are huge, cocktail sauce is splendid and the texture of the shrimp is perfect. Crab cakes are amazing and the Tomahawk... More

Great food and service. The lamb chops were amazing. Small place with a lot of character. Loved the outdoor eating space.

Food is good, Skip and John are wonderful. It's one of our favorite spots in town. The greek dishes are consistently good! Trout is on special often and also good. Sit back relax, have a good meal in a nice setting. Summer, fall, winter and spring at Hercules, ahhhhh.

Food not great, way too expensive. My shrimp wasn't deveined, and when the manager saw I didn't eat any of the shrimp I my meal, I told him I didn't eat it because it wasn't deveined. He said "ok" and took my plate. I sort of expected him to at least try to make it up to me. Our server... More

This restaurant is an excellent choice when you're in Saugatuck. The food and service are excellent. Choose the Greek food if you're in the mood. The garden dining in the rear of the restaurant is especially nice in the summer. Highly recommended!

One of my favorite restaurants! Intimate and nicely (but not stuffy) decorated little restaurant in Saugatuck. First off - the people who work here - from owner John behind the bar, to the gentleman host who warmly greets you to best-server-ever Richard, are great hosts and make sure you have a great experience. Food - a great mix of seafood... More

We used to eat here when it was simply gourmet hot dogs, which they did well. Now it's 'upscale'. Maybe it's my taste palette; hate to speak unkindly about anyone but the food just wasnt very good. My wife and I had a pasta dish that nether of us cared for and I noted that our guest didnt finish his... More

We have been to Saugatuck and Douglas several times now and have not been here yet. We met two other friends there and had a wonderful dinner. Two of us had the fresh lake perch, which was outstanding. One had a chicken dish that was very tender and one had the pork chop. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the... More
