Description: 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.

“Great Ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

This place has the best view and location. You can sit outside and see Saugatuck harbor, Mount Baldy, Kalamazoo river. The food is very good, but a bit pricy. The service is good to great. It's a must if you go to Saugatuck or are with friends.

“Weekend getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Setting out on the dock was awesome. The service was professional and courteous with attention to detail. Food was good and at the right price. Make reservations during the busy season to get a table on the dock and watch the boats come and go from Lake Michigan.

“Serving fresh fish--not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

The good news is that the deck is a very pleasant place to dine on a warm autumn evening. Service was good. The food was nothing to write home about. We had been told they were the place in town for fresh seafood--now I wonder if the person that gave us that fact was confused about what town we were talking about.

“Just passing through”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

During our holiday in USA this September, my wife and I ahd the good fortune to be in Saugatuck for a one night stay. The afternoon we arrived found us very hungry after a long drive from Chicago. This little eatery we found whilst walking along the water front and it was humming. On the strength of what we saw we determined to get a table and sample the food. We were not disappointed, the foodwas well presented and the plate full. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and my wife could not eat all of hers, that's standard for us, if she can't finish her meal then the meal was worth the money. The surroundings were great with good views across the water and plenty going on all around. We hope to repeat the experience but it might be a while as we live in UK.

“poor food and service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

I had a $14.00 French dip that was fatty and over microwaved (I was unable to eat it) our
waitress never came back to check to on us till she brought the bill. She offered to bring me something else but everyone was done eating. What a shame a restaurant with that location
has such poor food and service.....I will never eat there again or recommend it to anyone!
(Plus the whole place stunk like varnish....) that should have been a clue to eat elsewhere)
