    Chicken was a little too salty and too smothered in gravy. Blackened salmon was perfect. Seafood chowder was excellent. Waiter started out very cool but warmed up as evening progressed. A little pricey.

    Our server was Kelsey. She was knowledgeable, attentive and did a great job for us. the perch were excellent. The crab cakes just OK. It was not very busy so the noise level, usually an issue here, was not a problem. The prices are HIGH. Two people $150. Including a $25 tip.

    First the menu was very diverse, unusual in today’s restaurant environment. Although we have dined here many times in the past ten years, this by far exceeded all expectations. The food was excellent! Very well seasoned, no need for any salt or pepper. Our server, Stephanie was excellent. She was attentive, but not overbearing. She checked with us periodically, at reasonable intervals. The only downside was the noise level due to the band. While the band was excellent, they could reduce their volume by several decibels.

    There were seven of us dining and we had a great experience. Two had halibut and this dish is one you don’t want to miss as it’s delicious. Two had perch and both said it was excellent. Three had the crab cakes. The crab cakes are okay just not the best any of us ever had. The chef’s special Pomegranate salad was delicious and the Caesar salad didn’t disappoint either! We enjoyed some cocktails and suggest enjoying Momo’s Mojito, Manhattan, and the pear cucumber martini. We will definitely be back. This was our third visit this summer and we feel that our past two visits have been by far the best.

    We had no idea they closed at 9 we got sat at 8:10 pm felt rushed. Food was not good. The fish dip was awful. No flavor at all. Server took our money never cleared the plates or empty drinks. Sat at a dirty table until we finished. Would not come back

    Overall…arrived at 5:30 for a 6:30 reservation expected to spend time at the bar. She was awesome..great service. My 6:30 reservation service from Joe M was sarcastic and demeaning. We both ordered the Buddha bowl with Salmon. My Salmon was raw and took another 30 minutes to arrive. So a 6:30 reservation and my meal arrived at 8:00. I will never go back based off this experience. They just didn’t care. Joe stated he did everything he could do and to go online a write a review.

    Like a blind date, a restaurant experience can be cumulatively disappointing, all the small things adding up to be a dud of a night. Even irritating. This was the case at Sandy Point Beach House for my wife and me. Here are some pebbles in the shoe: - You get asked on the reservation website, and by the waiter what brought you there, and you say birthday, you anticipate some little perk, like free dessert, only to be told, “No perks, but we do have good desserts” (we’re just asking for our statistics). - You want to switch out the coleslaw for a (very small) side salad and they up charge you $9 with no forewarning of what it’ll cost you. - They serve ribs (that traditionally are eaten with the hands) and only offer cocktail napkins to clean up. -The “beach” atmosphere is almost there, but the place lacks the finishing touches of plants (fake or real), art or background music, and patrons are scattered over a large area which diminishes any feeling of coziness. (An outdoor fire pit might help.) - The prices bespeak a top notch experience that just doesn’t materialize, and you regret parting with your nearly $100 for dinner. The date was underwhelming. - The food

    This used to be a favorite place. Unfortunately, the noise level inside has failed and the food has deteriorated. Service was very good. Polite friendly staff. Just sad that the food quality has gone south. I hope they will return to past performance.

    Service was outstanding, from the bartender to our waitress. Pierogi appetizer was very solid. Enjoyed it. I should have looked a bit closer to the menu when my burger option said ghost peppers! Cooked perfectly, but a bit hot for my palate. Glad to have been able to substitute asparagus for French fries. The paella wasn’t quite right. I love scallops, but they were far too salty and the sausage was tough and seemed old. It was taken off of the bill. We would certainly go back. Loved the atmosphere and a great laid back setting. Unfortunately it was a rainy evening or we would have loved to enjoy the outdoor patio area.

    Two of our party ordered the mixed grill. We requested the steak medium rare. Both came medium to medium well done. We asked that they be replaced. They both cane back again medium. Disappointing as we normally are impressed. They did discount our meal. Not likely go order steak again. Other meals were excellent

    We didn’t not enjoy our experience. The food lacked seasoning everything tasted really bland. We did not order the traditional American dishes and that may be where we went wrong. The best meal was our Daughter’s waffles and I am not sure they were made fresh. Needless to say, I wish we had picked a different restaurant to end our amazing Saugatuck vacation. :(
