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

This is a hidden gem. I found it thanks to Trip Advisor's reviews. The restaurant is part of a golf club, open to the public. If you are driving on Blue Star Highway pay attention to the Best Western hotel: the street where it is located (Clearwater) takes you straight to the restaurant. There is indoor and outdoor seating overlooking... More

This place is a hidden gem in Saugatuck. It has perhaps the BEST outside dining in town - great views of the golf course and gardens! It has an outstanding wine list and great food.

This is a beautiful setting to have a great meal! One can choose to dine outside in a garden setting overlooking the golf course or inside. I had the pasta dish and added shrimp. It was very good!! The Walleye was the best ever and a huge portion, and the fish tacos were great as well. I also tip my... More
