We were here in early June so the crowds had not descended quite yet, although it was still very busy. We had our usual . . . the garlic rolls followed by a pepperoni pizza. The pizza is thin crust and very delicious. The garlic rolls come in a round tin and puff up to fill the whole pan. Really... More

This has to be one of my favorite places to eat! Went there Saturday night (7/19/14), had the escargot and it was excellent. The bread they served with it was a perfect mop for the garlic butter. The veal chop which was a special that night was absolutely out of sight! It was stuffed with provolone cheese and spinach, then... More

If you have a large group of people for dinner, this is a great restaurant. All of the wait staff work their butts off making the tables turn on busy nights. I've been here a couple of times and the pizza is good but the entree's I've had are literally just "OK" to not that great. Doubtful we would go... More

This restaurant is very popular in Saugatuck and in the summer there is always a wait. Surprisingly after years of visits to this area we had never been. Then we were reading reading a local flyer on music venues and Marro's was listed as having jazz piano. We we were at the bar so we could hear and then moved... More

We came to Marro's about 7pm on Saturday night. Ordered calamari ( which were ok) and house special "famous" pizza. I don't understand how people can seriously consider it the main food attraction as it was completely inedible. The thin crust tasted like the shoe sole. When the waitress asked how we liked it, we told her that it was... More

My family dines at Marro's more and more frequently on our trips to Saugatuck, because it's always great! Great pizza, excellent pasta, wonderful braciole, nice atmosphere. While several other Saugatuck restaurants have gone downhill, Marro' s is consistently outstanding. Even if there's a wait.

On vacation and ordered a couple of pizzas to go based on the reviews from trip advisor. The pizza was fast despite being busy but the quality left much to be desired. The pizza was bland and toppings were sparse on both. The thin style was nice but like I said the sauce and toppings were pedestrian at best.

Great Italian restaurant. Very lively, buzzy, and friendly place. We had two enormous pizzas: absolutely delicious- and plenty left over to enjoy tomorrow.

This place has been around forever and rightfully so. Two large dining rooms and nice bar with piano player on weekends. Specialty is their thin crust (almost like cracker crust) pizza that you can't stop eating. Mussels with tomato sauce excellent as are the pasta and fresh fish dishes. Reasonable prices and good service. Excellent wine list with some really... More

We were here on Wednesday, since it was $10 pizza night it was busy. Our 20 minute wait went fast as we sat in the bar. There were four of us so we wanted a table but there were couples eating in the bar. Our waiter was terrific, explaining the dishes and recommending his favorites. The fettuccini Alfredo was very...
