“Butler Burger is a must.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

The home of the famous Butler Burger. A Saugatuck tradition that you have to try. The restaurant has a very good menu and is located on the water at the end of Butler Street.

“Long standing historical restaurant on the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Butler is consistent and serves good food. Always crowded as it is right on the channel going out to Lake Michigan. Great place to meet friends.

“Dining in the 70's”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Long for the bland, poorly presented food of the 70's? Like dark, tired old resaraunts? This is your place. It does have a great location, though, for viewing the boats.

“Once again The Butler was the best choice!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Visited Saugatuck for the weekend and had our last meal of the trip at The Butler. Wish we had gone there for every meal!! You can really tell these people care about their business! Very clean, well trained and professional staff. The food quality couldn't be any better for the price! BEST drinks in town. Like I said earlier the other places in town just don't quite have what it takes to keep up with The Butler. We won't dine or drink anywhere else!!

“The food is marginal and overpriced.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

I had prime rib and it tasted like roast beef with Krogers gravy on it. Very disappointing. All at our table were not impressed with the quality of food. And it was pricey too. Would never go back or recommend
