I'd go just for their special salad you get family style with any meal, but they have excellent entrees, appetizers, and deserts. The service is absolutely excellent, it is generally packed. Considering the size that's a statement. I had the fish special, starts with a B but can spell it. Liver pate, that wonderful salad, and the molten lava cake... More

My wife and I had dinner at Clearbrook with some friends in mid August. I lived in the area years ago and now come back in the summer. We generally have a meal at Clearbrook when we're in town and it never disapoints. The setting is lovely, whether you dine indoors or out. We ate outside this time, but's it's... More

Met family from Chicago here for a lovely dinner on the deck with views of the golf course. Our server, Xavier was the best! Our party had two different burgers, walleye, and NY strip. Everything was delicious. Definitely recommend.

We usually go to Clearbrook for a nice family dinner when we are visiting Saugatuck. This time we had the pleasure of eating at the outdoor patio garden which is lovely. The food is consistently good, with a lot of options. At some places the food isn't as fresh when there are too many options, but that is not the... More

The Grill Room is where the locals go to eat in Saugatuck. It was a wonderful experience from the beautiful walnut paneling to the outstanding entrees to the enticing desserts. My husband had the Walleye which is the Grill Room's specialty. He stated the fish was the best he had eaten. I had sea scallops with a mushroom risotto. The... More

We had a group of eight. We were seated immediately and Johnny, our server, was ready to take care of us. We had an excellent evening with wonderful food. Some had steak, some pasta and some the walleye. One has the planked whitefish. All entrees were hot, and prepared perfectly. The portion sizes are large and most took the extras... More

We ate outside last week and enjoyed our meal. The food and service were both good and the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere is very pleasant. We had the special, barramundi, and it was very tasty. This was not our first time here and we have always had good food and service.

In planning our recent visit to Saugatuck, we put Clearbrook Grill on the possibilities list since we wanted to avoid long waits and parking issues at downtown restaurants . We're so glad we stopped in here. The food is a bit pricey but we weren't all that hungry so we ordered from the small plates side and salads which was... More

After driving around Saugatuck and discovering there was a 2-4 hour wait to get in anywhere, we ended up back at Clearbrook which was also very busy on a Saturday night but generally older clientele so the atmosphere was calm. We only had a 15 minute wait, bar was open so we did find immediate seating while we waited for... More
