Always a great choice. Come early, come hungry. Excellent portions priced reasonably. Fish tacos and chicken tonight. Can't go wrong with scallops.

We planned an early dinner but there was already a line be 5:15. We left our name and came back in 20 minutes and were seated immediately. Our meal was... More

This is not just a bar and grill. In addition to the broasted chicken and baby back ribs, it has upper end entrees like venison medallions and salmon. The service and presentation were great. As expected, it has a good wine and beer list. I'm glad we picked it for a special dinner. It was busy, even in the off... More

Never had a bad meal here! Food is wonderful, staff is great and it's worth the wait. It's always busy so that has to say something!!

My wife and I had walked by Phil's earlier in the day, but didn't really give it much consideration for dinner since we didn't really want "Bar and Grille" food. However, after reading some reviews we decided to give it a shot. The place was busy, but we didn't have any trouble getting a table. They have a decent beer... More

It's a toss up what to decide on. Everyone was so friendly. Bartenders are so great and the people that sit at the bar are... More

What happened to my favorite place in Saugatuck.? service was outstanding like always but Food was borderline at best. Had Perch like most visits and tasted like low grade fast food. Wings were great but real disappointed in my go to dish Perch .

We were in town for just three days and ate dinner there twice! Everything we had was wonderful and would recommend the perch, filet and the gumbo. They also have a gluten free chocolate cake!

We came here expecting your standard bar food and such but were blown away by the quality of eats they provided! We had a veggie quesadilla that was simply amazing for an appetizer. Then my wife had a fish sandwich that was delicious (I know because I finished it for her!) and I had a half rack of fall of... More
