Top-notch local eats

You would be hard pressed to find any place – big city or small town – with as many top-notch restaurants within such close proximity as here in Saugatuck / Douglas. 100% of them are locally owned and operated, you won’t find even one chain or franchise. Restaurateurs are held to high standards and take great pride in earning your business. Virtually all offer vegan selections and many use locally sourced ingredients.

We would be happy to provide recommendations from the list below (listed in alphabetical order), based on your specific tastes and preferences. Google will show you menus, hours of operation, etc. Note that if you’re visiting in late fall/winter/early spring, a few restaurants do reduce their hours or close down. For up-to-date business hours, click here. Also, you’re in a casual place. Casual attire is appropriate anywhere and everywhere!
