We are a family owned, full service restaurant in Saugatuck, MI that welcomes all of our guests with a smile and sometimes - a hug! Our staff are very special to us here. We have team members who have been with us since we opened the doors in 1995! They have grown with the Mermaid as well - finishing college, getting married and raising families.

Food was good and the salad choices were UNIQUE
Taste was fresh and...More
