For years my husband and I visit Saugatuck but always before Red Dock is open. Last Summer we went in July and finally made it to the Dock. We had a blast. The view, the atmosphere, wait staff, everything was awesome! What a fun place...More

We love Red Dock! It’s the first place we go when we get to town. It’ sits right on the dock across the river from town. It’s like an old Hippie haven with old signs, pictures . It’s great! They have awesome Chicago hotdogs! We...More

Great vibe, fun people! Wish it was open later than sunset, hard stop at sunset. Fun drinks, didn't eat, had a blast!

We went three times, and it was closed each time. Weather was okay - not great. We were disappointed, as we were taking another couple here for the view and Key West vibe.

Saw this place on the tv show "Under the Radar" and thought we would give it a try. Ordered some wine and were told none was available at this time. All they had was garbage sangria which we paid $8.00 Per glass! This area has...More

No where did we read this is a cash only business- before we ordered. We had a hot dog & had one drink and the bill came to $22.79. Food=great but it was a rather "downer" that we left one of us at the dock...More

Walking the town looking for a great breakfast spot and found Red Dock by the suggestion of a couple of guys in town. Man, were they ever right. The breakfast was fantastic and I would eat there again! Yummy!!

Another place that only takes cash. Our server was attentive, the food and beer(canned) so-so. Expensive for what you get. ($8 sangria -really?) Allegedly, a "see-and-be-seen" spot, not sure why. Best feature, you "dine" on the water.

Nothing is "cooked" per say. It was all sandwiches which were very fresh. There aren't fried foods, to my knowledge.

Not sure about where to find the lineup but there should be a band on that date being it falls on a Sunday. They have a phone number listed on their FB page and I tried to add a link to a video but it wasn't allowed, so if... More
