This place hasn't been remodeled for decades. It's the last remaining outpost of the Coral Gables chain. In the summer, it has a deck where you can view the boats in the river. Don't expect anything great when it comes to thedrinks or food, though.

Coral Gables seemed to be a tired sort of place trying to live on past laurels. The food was just okay, and the service was nothing spectacular. While it is on the water and has nice views, the restaurant just doesn't live up to what you can see when looking out over the water and boats. I'd say it's just about average.

Ordered the ribs. They were overcooked and luke warm. Wine glass was dirty. Restaurant was old and tired. Would not go back.

After walking around and shopping beautiful Saugatuck on a late September morning, my niece and I were ready for a place to rest, eat and enjoy a great waterfront view.

This restaurant definitely had great views of the marina. The staff were friendly and attentive.

We ordered the cheese pizza. When it came out, it was extremely thin (maybe a cracker crust?) with little sauce. I didn't believe I would enjoy it, but the pizza was actually very tasty. The place was pretty empty, it was raining outside, but we enjoyed relaxing and watching the view.

The decor inside was dated, the reason for the 3 stars.

We stopped at Coral Gables restaurant for lunch on a late Saturday afternoon in September. None of the waitress seemed to be dressed appropriately (ours was wearing a Coke sweatshirt, another looked like she was in workout gear). Two of our party ordered salads, which were severely disappointing. Both salads seemed overpriced for what was presented and neither of them had enough lettuce. One of the salads had cucumbers on it that were water-logged, so it seemed pretty clear that the salads had been sitting the fridge for awhile. The grilled chicken on the salads was barely there and overcooked. The sandwiches that were ordered were fine, although one of them had too much bread and not enough filling. Overall, we were very disappointed with our lunch.
