The pecan encrusted walleye was fabulous. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch. Great service! Nice atmosphere.

We had a party of ten and was seated on the patio quickly. The kids loved watching the boats on the river while we ate. The food was very good and is a favorite of my daughter-in-law.

This restaurant is easy to get to and overlooks the water. Nice to take a stroll on the riverfront before or after your meal. The food was especially great.

We've eaten regularly at the Mermaid Bar and Grille, as much in the summer--when everyone visits Saugatuck--as in the fall and winter, when the place is frequented mostly by locals. The food is consistently very good, and when there's the opportunity to sit on the deck to dine, and watch the boats go by on the river, the ambiance is... More

Had a late lunch here, the shrimp was pretty good, and actually was deveined & de-tailed, before breading/frying, so it was pretty good. Wait staff is a little slow, even during off hours. We'd probably go here again next time we're in town.

Thank you so much for coming in! We apologize for the slow service, summer tends to be crazy for us but that is no excuse. We appreciate the review and look forward to seeing you again soon! More

The seafood at the Mermaid is the best in town! The Walleye is to die for! We like to sit outside to view the water...

Nice patio for people and boat watching. Has wide selection for everyone's taste. Menu has unique items, down to basics. Expect 60-90 min wait on summer weekend. Put name in early and go for a walk in town. Hostess was dead on when table was ready, almost to the minute. Burger was best that I had in Saugatuk/Douglas

We came here on a beautiful day and were seated outside at a shaded table right by the lovely Kalamazoo River. We enjoyed watching a wide variety of boats, ferries, kayaks, etc. going by while we enjoyed our lunch. Highly recommend: The Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos and the onion rings. One of those in our party has a food allergy;... More

Service was attentive. We ordered the walleye and the prime rib sandwich. Both were above average. We did not have to wait long to sit outside. About a ten minute wait for harbor side seating.
