If you've never been in a real saloon you should try this one. Go in the morning and ask for Bill (the owner) you'll find you have made a friend for life.

It has a Road House feel and is what you expect. Cold beer in a saloon with a local vibe. There is often live music.

If looking for place with cold pitchers of beer, bloody Mary's and whiskey then this is the place. Grab the table by the window and enjoy

Stopped in twice while we were there for the weekend . Great local bar , Nick the bartender was real helpful for 1st time visitors to the area . Can't beat $6 for a pitcher of domestic beer . Open all year round .

Stopped in for a couple of cold beers. Good selection and friendly patrons. Nothing fancy, so don't expect much. I think they have hot dogs, popcorn and jerky

After walking for a while, we stopped in for a couple of cocktails. Nothing fancy, just a neighborhood bar. But it has very friendly people & took care of our "thirst" !!

Don't go expecting more than a seat at the bar. Then enjoy the atmosphere and the crowd. Been going to the Sand Bar for 45 years.

Is there public docking in Saugatuck? A place you can park your boat and walk into town without renting a boat slip? Thanks Andy
