The view and patio at the Mermaid is quite nice but that’s about all I can say positively about our experience there. The service was poor and the food was okay. Stop in for the view but you can definitely do better in Saugatuck.

The food and service were both excellent at this restaurant. Everything we ordered was very good, especially the clam chowder and squash soup. The outside dinning by the water is a must on a nice day.

We came on a Wednesday night. No wait. Loved the boat side ambience. Service was very efficient and friendly. Drinks were priced below what I expected to pay—a nice surprise. Salmon and Walleye were superb. Plus we got to enjoy parsnip with the veggies—don’t see...More

Have been here before but really was disappointed this time. Our waitress was not very attentive. Food was good but not memorable.
