Love the outdoor seating and also the live entertainment. Definitely a happening Saugatuck location. The waitstaff is accommodating and the food is very good. The guys that were there in this past July were great. Especially liked the Simon and Garfunkel.

Really good food at great prices. The atmosphere was nice and this is one of the places that was open later. At the time that my husband and I went they even had a live band. I enjoyed it.

Great red wine. Great food. Great service. Kinda place you keep going back to, weekend after weekend. Plus it has live music. Doesn't get any better. Jason keeps the place running like a top.

Great crab cakes but the fillet mignon with fingerling potatoes was pretty tasteless. Renee our waitress was friendly and took good care of us. For $91.00, the meal was a big disappointment.
