PETS:   We realize that many restaurants and/or restaurant patios welcome pets.  And we love our pets as much as anyone.  However … out of courtesy to those with allergies, fears, or whatever reason … ALL OF OUR DINING SPACES ARE JUST FOR HUMANS!

We welcome those diners whose trained, State of Michigan-defined Service Animal performs an essential and identified physical service which enables the diner to participate in a public dining experience.

  • RESERVATIONS RECOMMENDED, even for last-minute plans, PRESS THE “BOOK NOW” BUTTON near top of THIS PAGE.  CHOOSE INDOOR OR OUTDOOR then book.

Patio and Outdoor Dining are seasonally OPEN weather permitting … Indoor Dining here has lots of circulating fresh air.  We don’t heat the outdoors.  We tried patio-heaters and found our spaces just too wide-open for them to be effective.  We gave them away.  So … dress appropriately for the space you’ve reserved.

To GET A TABLE, press BOOK NOW on THIS page.

Remember all the buzz about “10 at 10”?  Those ten famous complete dinners, each for $10, started right here at The Grill Room in 2002 … permanently cementing VALUE into your dining visit to the Saugatuck lakeshore.  Since then, sure, our menu has evolved and grown with the times, but The Grill Room is still true to its roots.  Some of those same home-styled $10 dinners are still available, a little higher now, but a great dining value.  Take a look at the MENU, which more than ever still meets the needs of our often-returning “LOYALS and LOCALS”.

 

The Grill Room serves five nights weekly year-round (Tues-Sat), plus Mother’s Day Sunday Brunch.  Once you’re here, you’ll know why it won BEST CASUAL LAKESHORE RESTAURANT by Lake Magazine, and Wine Spectator Magazines’ AWARD OF EXCELLENCE for five consecutive years.  House-made foods, generous craft cocktails, 240 bottle wine selections, popular prices, and service 52 weeks a year… you’ll be glad you made that two minute drive from downtown Saugatuck!  Just north of town, off Blue Star Highway.
