“Great view”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

The food is average at best, but the upper deck for lunch is a fantastic place to enjoy the beautiful views of Saugatuck. Sit, relax and enjoy.

“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We enjoyed our waterfront lunch on the sundeck at Coral Gables. They portions were very large and the selection was familiar. They only have a few local wine selections, but it was still a nice place to stop in. The only downside was that service was really slow, even though they were not busy. We were half finished before anyone checked on the food and only got a refill of water just before we left. I would normally use my card but I paid cash so we wouldn't have to wait for her to return...

Good food, but don't go unless you have some time to kill.

“Drinks on the deck”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Had a great time sitting on the deck over the water. The drinks were nice. There was a man singing. I will definitely be back and hope to eat there next time.

“Beautiful view, crappy food”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

My boyfriend and I had never been to Saugatuck, so we took a tip from a local and decided to try Coral Gables. We got a great spot out on the deck overlooking all of the boats, and the weather was perfect. Our server was friendly and promptly brought us drinks and took our order. We ordered the spinach artichoke dip, and each ordered the French Dip. Pretty hard to screw up, right? Well, first it took forever to get the food. Forever, as in, the four customers at the next table were seated after us, ordered, ate pasta, burgers, and a salad, and were getting their bill before our food even came. Well, finally the appetizer and sandwiches came out at the same time. The sandwich was pretty much a dried up, stale bun about the size of a hotdog bun. Throw on a few shreds of completely dried out, flavorless beef, a piece of provolone, and half a cup of watered down beef broth for dipping, and there you go. The beef tasted like reheated leftover roast beef. Add 50 cents extra for hard, COLD fries instead of chips. And, the greasy spinach artichoke dip is still talking back to me. Sorry Coral Gables, but we're a little disappointed about losing $38 for such a crappy dinner.

“Skip it”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

This was our second visit to Coral Gables and we were hoping that our first experience was a fluke. The second time was just as disappointing. The service was atrocious - we were honestly concerned about the mental faculties of our waitress. She brought drinks to our table that weren't ordered and were meant for other tables, but managed to forget half of our food order. At one point, another server stepped in to offer assistance, as our waitress was clearly having issues handling our group of five. Go anywhere else but here.
