Neat place to eat by the water

Stopped in for late lunch. Ate here some years ago on the patio, unfortunately, too breezy and chilly today. Our waiter, Connor, did not pressure us and was good at suggestions, like key lime pie(to die for but not like Florida cousin). Ate grilled chicken salsa salad. Quantity just enough... read more

Food was nothing special at all for the price. I ordered the shrimp and it came with a hair in it. The server said "its only a small hair"...what! Any size hair is gross! They made me a new plate. Fries were cold. Kids liked their kids meals. $70.00 for four people was not worth it. We will not return.

My daughter and I ate there on Wednesday, May 20. The restaurant was dark and dingy. Food was not good. We both had prime rib sandwiches which were tough. My daughter wanted the coconut cream pie which was recommended but was really a disappointment . There was an outdoor patio but it was too cold to sit out there .... More

Good menu variety and libations. Alfresco lunch on the river. Dinners available too. Service was very good, and adjoining shops may interest you. I expect it's VERY busy in the summer season. No dislikes.

Stopped here for a quick late lunch, we shared a panini, chicken supposedly but was processed, yuk. Worst of all they fried the panini so it was dripping with oil!! To make matters worse it was dreadfully over priced and to cap that they charged us shared plate charge of $3, unbelievable. The only thing nice is the position of... More

Excellent service. Very nice location on the waterfront in Saugatuck. Right next door to the coolest shopping destination in town-The Pink Patio gift shop. Our food was wonderful. Beautiful presentation, hot, and tasty!

We had a great time for a late meal during the local Venetian Festival. Had to wait about an hour for a table but it was worth it. They have indoor and outdoor seating and it was a warm night so we opted for the outdoor seating and got a table for 2 right on the river. There was a... More

We stoped in about dinner time waiting to go on the sunset cruise on kalamazoo river. Our waitress was very nice and surved us well.... More

Mid-afternoon lunch outside was enjoyable. The server was welcoming, polite, & attentive. The calamari appetizer was delicious! Southwest chicken salad was average, but the panini and sandwiches were great!
