The Grill Room

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.

FALL/WINTER HOURS STARTING Tuesday, September 8th, 2020:  Tues-Saturday 5:00 pm to 9:00 (Closed Sunday & Monday Nights). 

GETTING A TABLE:   Since Covid, things have changed, and changed again.  And changing weather and edicts add more twists again, so… READ ON! …

…our WAITLIST (button below) is the best way to get a table.  But it only works 30 minutes ahead of arrival.  

For tables of any size up to 10, you can sign up on-line right here, UP TO 30 MINUTES AHEAD OF YOUR ARRIVAL (ie: sign-on at 4:30 if you’ll ALL BE HERE at 5:00).  It won’t mean your table’s waiting, but it will save you some wait time.  DO sign-up here, on line, and please don’t call, we can’t handle the call volume at busy times.  DON’T sign up more than 30 minutes ahead of the target arrival time (ETA) for your entire party!  HERE’S HOW:

  1. Sign in, then watch for our text message
  2. Reply to us so we know you received it!
  3. We expect you to BE HERE and check-in with us WITHIN 30 MINUTES.  If not you’ll be bumped back or dropped.  30 minutes is all it gets you.
  4. We’ll text you an estimated wait time, and show you your place in line.  You have the option of dropping off then if it’s too long for you.
  5. Have ONE of you check in with our Host.
  6. We’ll also text you when READY FOR YOUR PARTY to enter!

Outdoor Tables are closed for the winter.  Our Indoor Tables are generously spaced (even more so than just last week!) , disinfected, 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.


*Online ordering available only during business hours, order will be prepared when received

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.  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.

As a long-term (a/k/a: old) golf property … yes, we do have a DRESS CODE. It requires collars and sleeves for gentlemen playing golf, and sleeved shirts for gentlemen in food and beverage areas. Jeans and shorts are fine, but not gym shorts. Ladies may wear sleeveless.
