Whether it’s after golf, or a day at the beach, come enjoy our all-house-made cooking with friends and family at The Grill Room.  Even our complimentary breads were just a sack of flour this morning.  And our “Genuine Hospitality” includes spectacular views from every table overlooking walking gardens, lush landscapes, and our manicured rolling, tree-lined golf course.  Plus, seasonal seating on our Patio puts you right in the middle of it all, surrounded by the colors of nature summer evenings as weather permits.

SUMMER HOURS:  Tues-Saturday 5:00 pm to 9:00 (Closed Sunday & Monday Nights).  Carry-out/Take-away is temporarily NOT available due to staffing levels.  Sorry.  BAR SEATING IS NOW USABLE FOR “just drinks” AND/OR food (as available) after 4:30 any night open.  Our picnic pavilion is also a nice setting for before or after dinner drinks from our bartenders.

TWO WAYS TO GET A TABLE

  1.  ADVANCE RESERVATION
  2.  WALK-IN (just ONE of you) and check availability

First, you can now make a RESERVATION (new instructions June 5th, 2021)!  Press BOOK NOW and follow the prompts.  Or continue reading and THEN press BOOK NOW.  That’s the only way to reserve a table.

We have BOTH indoor OR outdoor tables available for reservations.  Our system accepts outdoor tables up to 12, and indoors up to 10.    DO sign-up here … and please don’t call … we can’t handle the call volume at busy times. 

  1. At top of this column … PRESS “BOOK NOW
  2. IN any order … select INDOOR, OUTDOOR, PARTY SIZE, DATE, & TIME
  3. IF it’s not shown, it’s not available
  4. If you can’t get ALL YOUR CHOICES, try OTHERS, ok?
  5. It will communicate with you, YOU CAN MAKE CHANGES BY RESPONDING.
  6. When it’s time, have ONE of you check in with our Host… then the rest of you.
  7. P.S.  “Waitlist” only gets you a table IF someone already booked cancels … & it will tell you!

The system allows changes that are STILL AVAILABLE.  Respond to its messages and its prompts will tell you how.  You may also EMAIL change requests to:  ClearbrookHost@gmail.com.  DON’T CALL.

OUR NEW PATIO IS GORGOUS AND OPEN.  OUTDOOR RESERVATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO WEATHER CANCELLATION.  WE DON’T SERVE IN THE RAIN.  We generally have some extra indoor space for some of you, BUT NOT ALL.  Our Indoor Tables are generously spaced, clean, and well-served.  But ALL arriving parties need to have JUST ONE PERSON check in with the Host/Hostess.  Others need to wait outdoors or in the car.  PARTIAL PARTIES can’t be seated until complete.  So arrange to meet all in your party OUT FRONT… then ONE OF YOU check in with the host.

As the seasons/weather changes again, revisit this page to see what changes we needed to make here. Thanks.

Patio and Outdoor Dining are OPEN whenever weather permits … 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 and the weather you’ll get.

THE GRILL ROOM serves 5 nights a week … closed Sun/Mon.  Due to minor labor shortages, we currently do not serve Sunday / Monday nights.

As COVID is still sort of a thing…  PLEASE … JUST ONE PERSON FROM YOUR PARTY ENTER TO GET A TABLE FROM OUR HOST.  You’ll find our table spacing as pleasant as our smiling faces!

To GET A TABLE, press BOOK NOW on THIS page (RESERVATIONS option was not available until Feb. 1st).

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 Sunday nights in summer (This summer, 2021, due to limited staff availability, we will only serve Sunday nights on the three Holiday Weekends).  We’re always closed Monday nights, to be rested and ready by Tuesday.  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.
