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!

After arriving in Saugatuck on a Sunday evening off season we had no idea where we could find somewhere open so took the advice of the taxi driver and landed at The Mermaid. The food was wholesome and there was plenty of it. After having a drink at the bar first and talking to some friendly locals we settled on... More

Met some friends on the patio at Mermaid last night and it was beautiful. Have been living in Sauatuck for 3 years but haven't been to Mermaid in over 8. I am glad we stopped. The drinks and service were excellent. Our friends loved their appetizers(mussels & edamame). The atmosphere was just spectacular. I forgot how nice it is right... More

This was a cute place with a nice view, bring sunscreen for hot days because it's a completely outdoor patio without a cover overhead to block direct sunlight. The food was solid, but nothing crazy inventive.

Very nice dinner for two couples, and still warm enough to sit on the lovely riverfront deck. The grilled salmon was excellent - slight crisp char on the outside and tender and delicious on the inside. Nice beer and wine selection. Friendly staff - our server and the chef were very patient, even though we were dining close to closing... More

I had the chicken sandwich which was very tasty, husband had the burger which was fine. Staff was friendly and the water views were nice. We'd return.

The service was very prompt, and server was excellent. He was right on top of things. The food came out super quickly and the portions were large. Everything tasted great, and if you are hungry this is your place! Excellent job guys. Good prices as well.

We found this restaurant within walking distance of where we were staying. I had a cup of the white chicken chili soup and chicken quesadillas. The chili I was told was not spicey, I found it to be a little spicey. My husband had a hamburger with potato chips. The hamburger was very good.

Had a nice dinner recently at the Mermaid Bar & Grille. Weather permitting, outside seating is a MUST! You sit right next to the river walk in Saugatuck Harbor so the views are amazing. We were even joined for part of our meal by a duck just on the other side of the fence, hoping for a few stray crumbs.... More
