Saw this place on the tv show "Under the Radar" and thought we would give it a try. Ordered some wine and were told none was available at this time. All they had was garbage sangria which we paid $8.00 Per glass! This area has...More

No where did we read this is a cash only business- before we ordered. We had a hot dog & had one drink and the bill came to $22.79. Food=great but it was a rather "downer" that we left one of us at the dock...More

Walking the town looking for a great breakfast spot and found Red Dock by the suggestion of a couple of guys in town. Man, were they ever right. The breakfast was fantastic and I would eat there again! Yummy!!

Another place that only takes cash. Our server was attentive, the food and beer(canned) so-so. Expensive for what you get. ($8 sangria -really?) Allegedly, a "see-and-be-seen" spot, not sure why. Best feature, you "dine" on the water.

This place is unlike any other in the area - a hole-in-the-wall feel - great food (we had the pulled pork), great views, great people watching. It is cash only, with a small menu, but a fun, quirky place.

We loved Red Dock. our server wasn't the best, but the food made up for it. I had the Otis sandwich and I haven't had a better sandwich anywhere. Nothing is really cooked; so no fries, you get chips. great place for a quick lunch.

A dirty walk through goose stuff to get here. Had a great drink. Good service. Along the water and a upbeat crowd. Would like to return when there is live music and even more energy. Seems like a real beach bar.

I have been to Saugatuck many times and this was the first time I heard of this place. Great place for a drink after a day at the beach, or before heading downtown for dinner. It feels like you're in a

The tables are located right on the dock. Not fancy but good food and great service. Deb was our server, super friendly and attentive. She was awesome. Food was also very good, mostly bar type food. Rum punch was excellent. Great views of the water...More

Don't go if you don't enjoy people, low maintenance and conversations. It's a hole in the wall right on the water and it seemed everyone knew everyone - if not, they introduced themselves. We came by boat and it was windy, so several came out...More

Nothing is "cooked" per say. It was all sandwiches which were very fresh. There aren't fried foods, to my knowledge.

Not sure about where to find the lineup but there should be a band on that date being it falls on a Sunday. They have a phone number listed on their FB page and I tried to add a link to a video but it wasn't allowed, so if... More
