Wonderful Greek

Sat on the patio on a nice summer evening. Drinks, service and dinner were excellent. Steak was done to perfection plus they had a nice selection of Scotch for after dinner!

Was here this past weekend and the service was OK but food was just average. Had the special the 40 day aged NY strip steak and it was full of grizzle. Will not be heading back anytime soon.

It was our first visit to Saugatuck. After exploring all the shops and seeing the numerous restaurants to dine in, we asked a shopkeeper where would be a good place to dine; she said Hercules. She was right. We started with Shrimp Cocktail. It was a bit pricey, but we enjoyed it all the same. My husband ordered the special... More

We always eat in the garden in the summer. The inside is beautiful too but the garden is outstanding. My favorite is the Greek Salad as I love the dressing and always add gyros meat. Of course the wine selection is fabulous! Always consistent. I have also had their fish and other items on the menu, but the Greek Salad... More

Limited menu, we sat at the bar and it seemed the bartender wasn't quite sure it was okay for us to sit there...hmmm...lots of other places to go in Saugatuck...will give them another chance next year.

We truly enjoy our time in Saugatuck and Hercules has become a regular stop for us while in town. The staff is superb and our meals have never disappointed us. Chicken marsala for me & Steak for hubby. Must have the out of this world Baklava for dessert and the Saganaki appetizer are always delicious as well.

As a Saugatuck resident I have dined here many times and never been disappointed. The atmosphere is tasteful, classy but not stuffy. The owners are almost always on hand and active in the business and their attention and high standards show up in the service and quality. I highly recommend Hercules.

We've been dining at Hercules since they opened. It's become a favorite of locals. The food, atmosphere, drinks & service are great! My favorite is the Greek salad & crab cakes. The salmon, lamb chops & walleye are right behind. John, Skip & wait staff go above & beyond to make you comfortable!
