We had a lovely time sitting on the patio watching the yachts. The food was spectacular. I had the orange chicken stir fry and my husband had the fish and chips. The prices were reasonable and the wait staff were friendly.

We waited 30 minutes for an outdoor table. The view is nice. The food was not so great. I had the Mahi tacos and it was apparent that the rice that came with my dinner definitely came from a package. The fish was dry. Overpriced for everything considering the quality. Even tho the service was good, we won't return.

This place has a very nice view and location but the food is very underwhelming. Everything tastes pre-made and frozen. It is also PACKED with screaming kids. There are better options in the area in my opinion

We had a late lunch there the first day we arrived on Lake Michigan. It was hot, but we sat on the patio overlooking the water. The service and the food was exceptional! Recommend this spot for sure!

Hunger pains brought us here while shopping downtown Saugatuck with our guests from California. My vegetarian burger was ok, but needed additional seasoning. Hubbies fish tacos were good, average tasting. Guests commented their coconut shrimp and fish and chips were very good. Happy! Prices are fair, nice atmosphere sitting outside waterside to the Kalamazoo River. 2 servers, 1 in training.... More

We sat outside right on the water on a beautiful sunny evening. The service was good and so was the food, but the best part was watching all of the boats going back and fourth.

Outdoor seating was very nice. We watched the boats go by as we ate diner. Curtis was our waiter and he was very helpful and gave us many ideas to do around town. My husband got the Orange chicken which was on the spicy side. I got the Maui Maui which was good but I probably wouldn't order out again.... More

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. We have team members who have been with us since we opened the doors in 1995! They have grown with the Mermaid as well - finishing college, getting married and raising families.
