The view was awesome, the food was good, and the service was fine. I would call ahead and put your name in because they are busy. Overall good experience.

We were excited to eat here, since their location is so awesome. As expected, the kids loved the food, but the food was a HUGE disappointment. It tasted like airplane food! Bland and boring. Maybe a decent place to go for drinks and appetizers, but definitely not worth a meal.

A restaurant on the water with expensive, bad food. We had eaten here several years ago and swore we would never eat here again because of the food quality. However, this year a group of friends visiting Saugatuck for the first time wanted to go here because of the view. After dinner we ALL decided never to go here again.... More

My wife and I had dinner here during our stay. We were able to sit outside with only a 10 min wait without reservations. The service was great, one of the waiters tilted our umbrella to block the sun for us. I had the salmon, wife had a salad with shrimp, both were good. Definitely worth a visit if you're... More

I finally found a good summer salad. I had more than one waiter checking on me. I would go back again just for the Bailey's cheese cake!! Gorgeous view. Reasonable prices.

Although we loved that we were seated right away, the food was way too expensive! My kids(teenagers)ordered the shrimp & fries and the portion sizes were for a 2 year old. Very disappointing. I actually thought he gave them a kids' meal. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and it was very basic. We are still waiting for the bill... More

I ate here on the 4th of July with my boyfriend before the fireworks. The staff was friendly with good recommendations. I had a question about a salad that seemed to have weird ingredients all thrown on it. The waitress told me it had been on the menu for a long time as the owner made it up when she... More

Beautiful outside eating area. Mermaid salad with ahi tuna was wonderful. Staff was very friendly. It was fun to visit the shops around the restaurant while we waited for a table.

Came here for dinner around 6:00pm on a Wednesday night. Father was concerned at that time we wouldn't get to be seated right away and we'd have to wait long but we were seated right away outside as we requested ! We had a beautiful view of the lake. It was a beautiful early evening. I ordered the salad with... More

This is a great resturant on the water. Wait staff was fast and friendly. Resturant is clean and has a great menu. Definitely a place to try while in Saugatuck.
