Perch

Perch and walleye as the locals like. Bring your appetite for laughter, it's loud. Service is solid and the people watching was fun

We have visited Wally's quite a few times in the past five years. A kind of fun place with an interesting atmosphere. The service is good sometimes and rather poor other times. The same for the food. But the price for a domestic beer really turns me off.

Wally's is a classic favorite for many. I can see how it attracts many due to the location, downtown Saugatuck in the midst of shopping and docking your boat. The drinks are always flowing and the staff are accommodating and helpful. If you're looking for much beyond your typical bar food, you may want to look a little farther. The... More

My wife and I have been to Wally's many times, and we sometimes drive to Saugatuck just to eat at Wally's. Wally's has a good menu of bar food, but I never had anything but the perch dinner. We have eaten at many restaurants and have never found perch that we like better than what we get at Wally's.

Had never been here before and thankfully I read the reviews first. The food is excellent as most reviews say. Service is severely lacking even though our waitress was the owner. Not a single smile out of the lady. And I really didnt need to hear about the food stuck in her teeth. We were a table of two couples.... More

Wally's is a fun place to go year around and always a fun time. They make great cocktails and the food is outstanding. The service is very good and the ambience is relaxed. All the menu items are tasty, but my favorite is Perch Burger. It does get real busy and you have to wait at times in the summer... More
