Over the years places have come and gone in Saugatuck, mostly tourist food. But now there is a great place for real food for both the tourists and the locals. Patio is very pleasant, staff very attentive and decor just right. I won't get there often from Arizona, so I plead with everyone that can to support Hercules.......

The patio seating at Hercules is shady and very peaceful. Food is fresh and service is friendly. My mini Hercules (Greek) salad was tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary. Gazpacho was fresh and delicious. My husband's perch sandwich was also very fresh. Prices felt a little high for lunch entrees.

I loved the personal attention. The salmon was phenomenal! The small personal atmosphere was enjoyable.

Excellent service, interesting atmosphere, wonderful, wonderful food! Varied and interesting menu items. My teenagers enjoyed it, too, and surprised me by venturing out ot their comfort zones. The crab cakes are to die for.

We had no reservations but only had to wait about 30 minutes in the bar (they serve a strong drink). Service was just a bit slow but the friendliness of our server overcame this. The steak, tomahawk ribeye, was cooked a perfect medium was very tasteful. Would eat there again.

2nd time back but we didn't remember that we had been here before. Host was super friendly. We split the Portobello burger and was surprised to find that it it was actually a mushroom burger where the mushroom was the meat. I don't like mushrooms so I remove them. Turned out that actually tasted really good!

Ordered the Portobello Burger and thought it was going to be with beef but it was only veggies, it was an awesome sandwich. Host was very friendly good service, ate outdoors very nice atmosphere.

On a Holiday weekend during a community parade, our group made it across the main street and after a few blocks we came upon Hercules. A couple of people were coming out of the restaurant and said, "good food". We made our choice to eat there and were led to a walled and shrub enclosed garden seating area. The ambiance... More

We were a party of nine and were very much excited about our evening at this restaurant. This was our third trip to Saugatuck and we typically dine at Everybody People's Cafe in Douglas. We should have gone there again. The wait staff was young and not very experienced, they didn't know the menu very well. The seafood was not... More
