We stopped here for lunch and had bloody Mary's, fish tacos and veggie quesadillas. Food and drinks were really good. This bar is always crowded and a bit loud. Seems like a favorite with locals. Will return.

The food was really fresh and not the same old taste. We had the fish tacos and the black and bleu burger, both tasted fabulous, probably the best food of our trip. The service was fine, just not really much other than the bare bones.
The atmosphere is just a bar, there were people at the bar drinking for lunch, not a romantic place but fine for children. This is worth the trip.

Saugatuck has a nice island feel to it in the summer, the nicest spot on Michigan's west coast that I have been to. This place was highly rated on TA so we tried dinner but there was a 40 minute wait so we left. We returned for lunch the next day. My wife and I both had perch and enjoyed it. Good but we liked Hercules better and it is right around the corner.

We had dinner at Phil's this past Saturday. We chose one of the busiest days to visit Saugatuck, since it was their Venetian festival. But we love crowds and absolutely adore Saugatuck. Phil's is our favorite place to eat in Saugatuck. Their lake perch never disappoints! Honestly the best lake perch I've ever had anywhere. They serve a very large portion of the perch and their mashed redskin potatoes that come with it are out of this world! Hubby had the full rack of ribs and while they were cooked very well, he said that the sauce was on the spicy side and there was no mention of that in the menu. He said it could have used a bit of "sweet" to counteract the heat. Dessert was their incredible creme brulee! Best ever!

The wait staff was very busy, but still attentive and very friendly! We love the brown paper on the tables and crayons on every table. It is a great way to entertain children and also fun for us adults that want to play tic tac toe or hangman while we wait for our food. My only negative about Phil's is that the noise level in the restaurant is extremely loud. It is a small place, so the volume from people talking is loud, but then the background music they played was very loud too. I prefer to relax when eating out and the music made that a bit hard to do. But it won't put me off going back. Phil's is our restaurant of choice when in Saugatuck!
