Where to Eat in Saugatuck, Michigan

Nobody goes hungry in Saugatuck. For such a tiny town, its diverse restaurants cater to big appetites. Whether you already live in this cute town or are visiting and staying at one of the many Saugatuck bed and breakfasts or vacation rental companies such as Lakeshore Lodging, here are some of the best restaurants listed below.

Bowdie’s Chophouse, 230 Culver St.

The trimmings are up to you, but you can count on a steak that's been aged for 28 days. It will also be bigger than your head. 
Bowdie’s is famous for its steaks and several delectable sauces. Nontraditional sides, like truffle fries and seared pork belly, take the classic American steakhouse to a new level. Traditional offerings include lobster tail, escargot and crab cakes. Casual business attire is appropriate for the understated elegance of the dining room.

Borrowed Time, 329 Water St.

cozy gathering spot has a small, sophisticated menu. The food, wine and craft beer selections change often, but do all that you can to taste those crazy peppadews stuffed with fennel cream. Charcuterie meats and cheeses are thoughtfully chosen and paired with unconventional wines. Enjoy your meal on the wide, shaded porch or on the lawn. 

Phil’s Bar and Grille, 215 Butler St.

If you’re tired of humdrum bar food and you don’t mind a little noise, check out the ambitious menu at 
Phil’s. Entrees include pad Thai scallops, lamb lollipops and bison medallions. Sandwiches are more creative than usual, and reduced portions and gluten-free dishes are available.

Marro’s Italian Restaurant, 147 Water St.

Marro’s, boasting the same ownership since 1971, extends a warm welcome whether you’re dressed for a date or coming straight from the beach. Live jazz enhances both traditional choices and more unusual fare. The heavenly braciole, a seared steak stuffed with bacon and Romano, cooks for five hours. The 
extensive menu features seafood, design-your-own pizzas and eclectic wines.

Uncommon Coffee Roasters, 127 Hoffman St.

It's high time that you took your java seriously. Aside from the coffee house and bakery, a coffee institute is located in nearby Douglas. If you take a break from the beach, sign up for a 
roasting class. The café serves freshly baked goods made with local dairy products from a cow-friendly farm. Herbs are grown on the premises.

That should get you started, but there are many more outstanding restaurants in Saugatuck. If you visit on an empty stomach, you're sure to find something that hits the spot.
