Beautiful view of Kalamazoo River & Saugatuck Harbor. We arrived just before closing on a Monday. Cold beer and clever signs around the property. Nice walk up the path to the dock. Would like to go back & try the Food!

It is just edgy enough to always be fun and interesting. They may be out of what you want, but the joy of being there supersedes any disappointment. Where else can you sit right over the water on a funky dock, drink and be merry....More

This is such an amazing place with great food and drinks. It's located right on the water with spectacular views. Try the tuna salad with warm pita bread. It's awesome. The rum runners are great too(although a little dangerous)

This is right at the end of the famous Red Dock. Open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. They have great views of the town and river, watching boats going by.

expensive, seemingly watered down drinks... old white-haired guy (think the owner) very rude, like we were a burden to him... went somewhere else and had fun.

Nothing is "cooked" per say. It was all sandwiches which were very fresh. There aren't fried foods, to my knowledge.
