    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. :(

    We arrived early for our reservation. My husband and I had a drink at the bar. We were seated outside. A server came by after a while and asked if we had been helped yet. We had not. We ordered our appetizer and our meal. Again after some time our meal arrived-not our appetizer. I don't believe any of this is the fault of the server. I think he was overworked. He did realize our appetizer wasn't delivered. He brought it out shortly thereafter. It was supposed to be biscuits with butter. It came out with olive oil. Not the evening we planned on but I think maybe the restaurant was short staffed?

    We booked a table outside for the live music only to find the live music was indoor only? On a summer might. And they have no speakers to pipe it outside. Indoor atmosphere is good and outside can be fun but sitting at cheap little plastic tables on a cement slab without any design elements or live music was underwhelming. Patio layout and design is disjointed. Food prices are too high for both the items and the atmosphere. A $30 steak comes with fries - no vegetable or salad, no alternate potato option. The bam bam shrimp appetizer was like something from the frozen section of the grocery store which didn’t explain the $18 price. Perch dinner for $28 was deep fried rather than pan fried and came with only fries. I am good with paying premium prices for quality food and drinks - that includes a healthy and interesting preparation and something besides fries with every meal. The burger is the best thing on the menu and we usually pair with the Brussels for an adult meal with a vegetable. Overall fun place but their atmosphere and dishes don’t line up with the premium prices.

    Overall we were disappointed. Went for my wife and her twin sister's birthday and were looking forward to the night after hearing good things. Key points below. - Food took an extra long time to come out. - Server was not very personable at all. Didn't ask if we were celebrating anything and I added the birthday note into the reservation. - My wife and her sister both ordered salads with dressing on the side, they came out drenched in dressing. Given that it took so long to get the food, they didn't want to send it back, but weren't able to eat it because it was drenched. - Perch entree was a basket of fries with some seemingly extra small filets - Sat with empty waters for almost the entire meal - Our group of 6 orders apps, entrees, drinks, and desserts. Total bill was over $250 which is expected, but the overall experience was not worth it. Totally understand restaurants are struggling to find enough help let alone good help, but that is all the more reason the kitchen needs to be accurate.

    We made the trip from Grand Rapids to West Olive because I had read about the steak (ribeye)! It was well worth the trip. And, my wife had the lemon pepper fried chicken. Delicious! My only disappointment was that it wasn't directly on the water. I wanted to enjoy a water view while dining. But, I'd still go back. It was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten.

    We waited 1 1/2 hours for our food because of a large party in the back. The rest of the restaurant was pretty empty. The food was very good and the waiter did continuously apologize for the long wait. It was our first time there.

    It took 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order, and another 15 for drunks to arrive. I had to go up and ask for a dessert menu, as well as for a 2nd round of drinks and for the check, despite it not being busy. About the worst service I can remember at a restaurant.

    Despite the name - it's not on the beach... Drinks were good. Service was nice and friendly. The food was OK, but nothing to write home about - halibut was dry and had some unpleasant strong fried onion smell and pieces of unpleasant smelly onion. Paella was almost good, but overpowered with chorizo (and not super fresh chorizo). Overall, OK, but could be much better.
