4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We were told by a friend to try the Butler burger and we are glad we did. It was very juicy and tasty.

“So - so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I'd heard people rave about the "Butler Burger" but honestly it's not that great. Service here is about the worst of any of the ten restaurants I've eaten at in Saugatuck. There's an air of condescendence that hovers over the outdoor deck - it's like the waitresses are doing you a huge favor if they happen to get your order right 25 % (about the average of our 4 visits) of the time. They seem to act like they're Ivy League and you're from the MAC. It's weird.

Outdoor eating and view is awesome, very comfortable relaxing atmosphere. Food is good. Service is awesome, friendly staff. No complaints. The price is fair.

“Good Food, Good Service, Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We had a great late lunch at The Butler. The service was excellent as was the soup and salad my wife and I had. The view and ambience were fantastic. Great views of the harbor Cant say anything negative about this place.

“Great food, relaxing ambience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This place doesn't look like the quaint historic restaurant it is from the outside. I had the most wonderful walleye I had eaten in a long while. Very nice wine list. House wines are from Fenn Valley, a local winery that produces too shelf wines at very low prices. Recommend their cab and Pinot Grigio as excellent. Great food and service. Quiet and relaxing.
