We ate outside on the patio, always nice. We like to eat at Hercules prior to shows at Mason St Warehouse. Food was very good, as was service. This restaurant is one of our favorite fine dining spots in Saugatuck.

The food was outstanding! Both of our fish dinners were unique and perfectly prepared. The vegetables were cooked to perfection, still a bit crisp and not overly cooked. The seating was quiet and very relaxing. The only disappointment was the wine, both of our selections, red and white were acidic and not pleasurable.

The food was perfect, wine, as well. Lots of choices. The surrounding atmosphere, inside and outside (patio) are beautifully decorated and the music soft. An elegant but comfortable space. Seafood, steaks, and poultry all uniquely prepared and attractive as served. No wait, yet no rushing. Nothing but the best, including server. Thanks, Lucas. We had crab cakes, gazpacho, greek salad; salmon, roasted chicken, potato encrusted walleye, All fantastic.

This was our first visit. We had heard very positive things about Hurcules from friends.
We were NOT disappointed.
The service was great and our cocktails excellent.
The menue offered very good options, and my wife and I both were very pleaed.
The prices are on the higher side, however, we thought it was a good value considering
the quality of food and ambiance.
We recommend tjis fir a special celebration.
Reservations highly recommended!

Food was excellent and prepared as requested. For the first time ever, Richard (our server) introduced himself and ask for OUR names so he could address us by name and helped navigate the menu. That is someone who genuinely cares for the people he meets. Garden area outside was a nice enclosed area surrounded by a little nature and a small pond with flowing water. Great experience, very impressed!

Enjoyed our wedding anniversary dinner here. We were fortunate enough to be seated in the back garden, which was beautiful! The food was high quality and the service was deliberate and un-rushed (but attentive). Will definitely be back to Hercules when we are in Saugatuck again!

Came to celebrate my husbands birthday. Server spent more time bouncing at other tables that already had servers taking care of them. I mentioned it was for a birthday and the server shrugged it off and all you could hear about was him talking about his workouts. The restaurant itself is very nice and the manager/owner is a very nice man. Our steak was not cooked as requested and came out well done. I expected a better experience overall.

Baklava is housemade by the owner and worth every calorie.

We were seated in the garden which was very nice. We ordered Saganaki. When we asked for a wine recommendation the underage server didn’t have one and didn’t come back with one as he said he would. When the Saganaki came it was without the pita bread so we had to wait for that. The drinks we ordered came when we were mostly done with the appetizer. (He had to come back and ask if I wanted a gin or vodka martini). Main meal of Lake Trout and Lamb Chops was good but not great. The server at the table next to us also apologized for dropping the ball. So food was good, service not, ambience outdoors was very good.

Hercules has become our favorite stop when in Saugatuck. We appreciate them being open in the off season and the food is always good, the service professional, and in the words of our favorite server, "this place is mature." We couldn't agree more.

The food was out of this world, my perch was battered perfectly. My husband is Vegan and they even had a couple things for him to try. Honestly my favorite part was sitting in the back garden on the patio. Great service was plus.

Arrived at restaurant a few minutes late but was seated immediately. After 15 minutes, had not been waited on. Went back to host station to politely inquire about getting a server. One of the women servers standing beside the host immediately volunteered to take care of us. She was outstanding, and the restaurant made up for our wait by providing two free drinks and desert. My date liked the potato crusted whitefish, and my half duck was outstanding. Value of the food was quite good. Would definitely return for another visit in the future.
