The food tasted like it was microwaved, and they charge you for sour cream on your potatoes, which I didn't even ask for.

Group of us went after a meeting. Great sports bar. Good burgers, good service and good prices. Nothing fancy but worth the visit.

The menu is very good and the pricing is good because the portions are good. You have the sports side and the dining side with a lot less TVs. And don't forget to get a punch card if your going to be coming back, good for a future discount on your meal. Service is also good.

We wanted to have dinner and watch the Michigan football game... not many places in downtown Saugatuck to do this. We tried Phil's, but it was so busy and they only had 2 TVs. We chose Spectator's and you can't go wrong. That's the whole point of this place. Many TVs showing many different games. The service was friendly and... More

This tries to be a sports bar. I liked the pictures on the wall but it has zero charm and the usual poor-quality bar food. There is nothing special about it. Can't understand the crowded parking lot. The beer was fine but the experience wasn't. Service was average and impersonal. Place was loud.

Not a bad beer list, decent menu. I had the spinach salad with shrimp and my partner had the perch dinner. The prices were typical for the area and the staff was very prompt and courteous.

Josh our Starlite Resort Desk manager recommended Spectators Grill, where the "Locals Go." We went on Thursday Night, which was Rib Night, a rack for $17.00! Delicious!! My wife got a Petite Sirloin, which was also delish with asparagus & a side salad. Lots of TV's for the Olympics & Rodeo's. I'm sure Football is Big in the fall!! Great... More

This is a great bar and grill. We eat there twice during our visit. Lots of seating and since it is away from downtown and the water you can get a table fast. The hot wings are a must and the french dip was mouthwatering!
