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

Great food, it's a hidden away little treasure. We found this place on the last day of our trip and wish we'd known sooner!

Had a nice dinner and sat outside on the Harbor. The food is reasonably priced but the view of the Kalamazoo River and the paddleboat was what made this dining experience fun!

My family dined here on a chillier night. The waitress was very nice! The food was great! Two of us had the seafood with pasta and it was delicious. The salmon and steak was well prepared. Definitely get the calamari. Dining outside by the water was definitely nice. They even passed out blankets in the evening.

My daughter and I ate lunch at this restaurant this past weekend. We both love mussels, so naturally when we spotted that on the menu our choice was made. We decided to split an order and I'm so glad we did! It's huge! Certainly big enough for 2 people. The mussels were large and plentiful. It's served in a broth... More

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
