Good shopping and food

Went here the week of Christmas. The decorations and lights were beautiful. We found good places to eat, shop and have coffee.

Looks worn and neglected. The streetscape needs help. Best plan would be to make it a walking mall by banning cars and landscaping where the street had been. The shops are mostly tee shirts and trinkets. Little to no upscale merchandise

Needs updating. Not visually attractive compared to other Michigan resort towns. Shopping is mediocre at best. The whole town seems dated and on there cheap side

This street was a delight to stroll on, much like the whole downtown. It's tree lined streets, very quaint stores, well maintained waterfront and quiet, peaceful atmosphere makes this little Michigan town a pleasure to discover.

Visited for the weekend, walked the streets and went to many of the shops. There's clothing, food, drink, antiques, drugstore, movies, bars, coffee, gifts, etc......pretty much something for everyone.

There are lots of shops and restaurants with friendly people. I love this little town! It is very artsy and has a lot of interesting things for sale as well as some nice and friendly bars. There are cute restaurants and coffee shops scattered all around. It was absolutely beautiful in October!

1st time ever visiting Saugatuck. Loved shopping the stores on Butler! Art, coffee shops, wine tasting, ice cream, glassware, antiques, restaurants, bars, boutiques and tourist-y type stores w/ a good variety of items. Majority of shppping is on Butler but there were a few more shops + a restaurant on the water.

There is so much to look at down Butler St. Wear your gym shoes because you'll be doing a lot of walking. It was great to go into every local shop and see how much art each one has. We just love jewelry and there are so many different jewelry artist that you will see in these shops. The art... More

Butler Street is in the heart of this very beautiful town and at the one end is the Butler Restaurant which serves very good food, Their Butler burgers are super delicious as well as anything else on their menu.
