Best lake perch in Saugatuck...

Everyone has an opinion on whose lake perch is the best. Loads of good choices in Saugatuck. Wally's is my favorite. Both full order and half orders available. It is lightly fried, crispy and delicious. Friendly atmosphere. Indoor or outdoor seating. Bartender Ben at the inside bar will gladly mix... read more

We had to wait about 40 minutes to get our food and no reason was given for the delay. The food was just plain bad -- and greasy. And judging from the onion rings, they don't change the oil in their fryer often enough.

In fairness I'll admit that a pet peeve of mine is waiting a long time for food that comes out burnt. It took 30 minutes for a burger burnt to a crisp. Ore Ida fries are better than theirs. Did i mention it was a $9 burger?

We came for lunch and chose this place mainly because my mom can't walk far and there was a parking spot right in front of Wally's. (Parking is quiet challenging in Saugatuck, particularly if you have someone using a walker). Anyway, we were thrilled with our lunch. We both had the perch sandwich and upgraded to the onion rings.

Wally's is where you want to go if you want to have some great perch baskets, want to listen to live music and be in the center of Saugatuck action.

Great food as always. A small menu but everything is good. Great bar as well as good food. A very friendly, lively place to be- but also great for families. Tables inside and outside, sports coverage on TVs - just a great place to be.

When we visited there wasn't a wait time. The service was great, and the food awesome! I had the lamb sliders and he had a bacon burger. Both the onion rings and tater tots (the meal comes with fries, but we aren't fry fans) were good. Everything was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The prices are good for being in... More

Visiting Saugatuck for the day and went in to Wallys for a beer and a burger. My wife had a burger and I had a turkey burger. Hand pressed big burgers that were both very good. Comes with potato chips. Fries are extra and my wife ordered some. Basic crinkle cut fries that had no flavor. Had five beers on... More

We walked by Wally's to do some shopping thinking about where to eat and came back a half hour later. A woman put us on the list and said there were 4 people ahead of us and they do not take reservations. The Belmont Stakes was on TV with a possible triple crown winner on the line so there was...
