Go for the fried Perch!

The best, lightly dusted and cooked to perfection. An experience you can't miss on your next visit to Saugatuck! A table outside is icing on the cake.

Worth the drive...for us it's about an hour to Wally's. I love the small bar atmosphere, outdoor seating in Saugatuck and easy going staff. I go for the perch, though it wasn't always so. The problem with their perch, is that you won't enjoy anyone else's quite as much as you used to, and you won't order anything else on... More

This is a great little place. There is indoor seating, enclosed patio seating and outdoor. The food is very good. Perch sandwiches were very good. Music left a lot to be desired by oler couples tho.

I did visit Wallys since my last review in July of 2011. We went there for the band and it was against my better judgement to go back. I will say that I was pleasantly surprised to see that the woman's restroom has a new hand dryer that works! Thank you managment for fixing this huge problem! We didnt eat... More

Looking forward to some good area cuisine being our first night in this area, but they ran out of three of the interesting options on the menu that I was looking forward to. I wound up splitting a larger fried perch dinner with my husband, which was fine and filling, but our friends didn't care for their choices either. It... More

It was hard to say what rating to give this meal. We stopped in before the theatre for appetisers and drinks. There was a very small selection for appetisers so the server made some suggestions from the main menu. The food was good but it was kind of odd. Lamb sliders with grilled onions and an interesting sauce. It had... More

We stopped in for a late lunch on a weekend and were told we had a 15 minute wait which turned out to be 10 minutes. Service was prompt considering the place was packed.I had the perch sandwich which was as good as advertised. The beer selection is above average. Be sure to try to get a street side outdoor...

The food is not unpleasant, just undistinguished. Can't go wrong here with burger/fries/onion rings. Service is always prompt, but best part is outdoor, sidewalk seating. If you really want the unique mix of people that IS Saugatuck, you MUST take a meal outdoors at Wally's!

Visited Saugatuck last weekend and thought why not, little place on side street, lots of action. Asked waitress how long and she said about 20-25 minutes, no problem we will wait. About 45 minutes later asked again. Her reply was not sure, we decided to leave and go across the street to Coral Gables and have a bite. Walked in... More

Even 2 weeks later, I'm still somewhat stunned at this experience. 2 couples, we go to Wally's on 7/31 for dinner. Food pricey, but okay. Ask waitress (Summer) to split our check. she seems nice at first, though as the time goes on, it's more and more difficult to get her attention for items we should have had. Check time,... More
