Staff was very friendly and gave great recommendations. The fish and chips were delicious, and my french dip sandwich was probably the best I've ever had.

Service was good. Good selection of beers, ciders and wines. Food was average at best. Salmon BLT probably should not come on a stale roll for 16.5 Overall many other options. The view was nice but you can do better

Fish and chips were average at best. The other fish dish wasn’t inspiring either. The breading was a little soggy on fish. We sat outside and the view was pleasant but the food was average. Service was good.

We visited the Mermaid Grill over Memorial Day weekend. We went around 5 pm and had a 45 minute wait. They use your cell phone number to text you when your seat is available, so we could still walk around Saugatuck and visit other stores....More

Not much of a menu to be honest. Nice atmosphere and location, but wasn't too keen on the menu. Would not go back.

Great outdoor seating with lake views. My wife and I stopped here for drinks and a snack. They have a nice selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks. The app we had was good, and the service was excellent.
