Too expensive...

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... read more

I always make sure I eat at Hercules whenever I'm in the area. Simply the best overall restaurant in The Saugatuck/Douglas area

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

We had the quinoa tabbouleh salad, Hercules salad, and the duck -- all excellent. Their pita bread that accompanies their salad is fresh, buttery, and delicious. Great drinks. For this dinner, we just ordered a pitcher of Bud Light, but I've had their martinis in the past & they're definitely a treat! Our fantastic waiter, Richard, smoothly and without delay... More

We eat at Hercules a couple of times a month. The back room is cozy in winter, the Martinis are capacious, and the food is very consistent and solidly good. Wait staff are friendly and fun. The menu is a mix of Greek and grill. The walleye and grilled meats are my favorites, and my husband loves the pastitso. The... More

Our party of four dined here and had a great meal with very good wine.I tend to love love chops and have eaten them in numerous restuarants . The lamp chops I had were very tasty and prepared just right.Our whole party enjoyed all their food.

We finally found a class-act in Saugatuck. From the minute we walked in this past Saturday night, the host, Skip, treated us like royalty. Had a few drinks at the bar. John was extremely knowledgable about wines and he is very friendly and professional. He is a great mixologist. Our meal was comparable to any terrific Chicago restaurant (our home... More
