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

Sitting on the RedDock, that's what you will feel while enjoying the view of the water. Lots to look at, fun signs, esp. the ones on the bathrooms! 😉 Lunch was ok, we shared a pulled pork sandwich. Lots of good tasting meat, the bread...More

I come here a lot and love the view, the wraps, the music, and the vibe. Feels like Key West. It was even cooler when the big SS Kewatan ship was parked next door.

We were looking for a waterfront spot for a snack and heard about the Red Dock. So glad we found it. It's very simple, but just the ticket for a cold beer, great water views and surprisingly good food. I had the baked brie special...More

This was a fun stop for happy hour. It's a grungy bar with a lot of charm on the dock of the bay. You can walk or pull your boat right alongside the dock and park for a drink or two.

The atmosphere is great. On the water and fantastic views. The drinks are cold but they only take cash. The food is bar food. The service is iffy. On a good day it is really a great time. On a bad day, you might get...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
