Our recent visit to Red Dock for an evening of refreshments and dining yielded a satisfying experience. The culinary offerings left a favorable impression with their delectable flavors. Noteworthy mentions include the delightful Turkey wrap and the savory Italian beef, both of which were notably enjoyable. The venue's waterfront setting adds to its appeal, offering a pleasant view of passing boats. Our choice of mixed drinks proved to be a wise one, as they were expertly crafted and highly enjoyable. However, it's worth noting that we opted to forgo their domestic beer selection due to the relatively higher cost. Instead, we considered that the price point would be better suited for a visit to a craft brewery, given our preference for a more diverse selection over standard light beers priced at $6-7.

The atmosphere is great. It reminds of the days spent in Fort Myers Beach, eating at Junkanoo on the ocean. Not fancy but very comfortable. Come in shorts and sandals. Staff was very friendly and attentive. The Chicago style hot dogs my wife and I had were very good. Beer is served in cans( I would prefer beer on tap) Rum punch was excellent. Highly recommended Red Dock Cafe!

What a fun spot! So glad we found this place. Plenty of seats by the water in the sun or under cover. Lots of decorations and funny signs and photos. Like the sign says cold beer, loud music and NASTY bathrooms. Boats are able to pull up and grab drinks and eats. Staff are friendly and funny! Can't wait to come back in a few weeks. Cash or cards accepted. Ample parking.

This is an incredible place, we had fun. I had the hippie punch and it is wonderful. Ot was an absolutely goregous day to be enjoying toddies on the dock. They have tables with and without umbrellas, music and offer food. I had a veggie wrap and chips and it was tasty. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to get back there. You best visit before 9.24.21 as do sadly they will be forced to close permanently (owner of the dock will no longer lease to them) 😪

Heard about this place on Under the Radar. The atmosphere is very unique. It is right out at the end of a landmass on Lake Michigan with all of the seating on a dock. The parking lot is total unkept and the walk out to to the restaurant a little confusing. The building itself is eclectic hodgepodge of signs with a mix of slightly run down building. They like to blast their version of music, but if you sit out towards the end of the dock it's fine. All of this somehow adds charm to this place. I ordered the Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwich with a side of noodles. I was with my Aunt who was the one who heard about this place. She ordered an Otis Sandwich. The sandwiches are baked so it takes a little while to receive. The 1st thing I have to say is the sandwiches are HUGE. My pulled pork had a ton of meat in it. Felt like 2 ibs. The sandwich was Spectacular, every last bite was super juicy. The sandwich was light on the bbq, you mostly tasted the pork and thats okay because it is amazing pork. The bread it's served on is also amazingly good. The noodles I got were served cold and were good, but also ehh. I took home about 2/3 of it and nuked it later and it was much better. My Aunt also loved her Otis Sandwich. The sandwiches are about $12 with no side, however the sheer size of the sandwiches make it well worth it. The service was mostly good. It was very attentive, just seemed lackadaisical. I think that's were some people get the rude from. Overall this was an easy 5 Stars. That was one of the best sandwiches I've had in years. Would I return? You bet I will.

Was in need of a quick bite to eat before boating. They have great sandwiches here. They have spots for boats to park and drop into eat. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Best water views in Saugatuck/Douglas! Also, very good food, excellent drinks and fantastic service. Not to be missed when visiting the area.

So fun! A little off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Basically sitting on the water with great views in an authentic island bar setting. Music playing. Nothing fancy but good service and a great place to eat and hang.

Awesome location with live music. Don't bring anyone under 21. Somewhat arbitrary rules and you have to sit in a back area away from the water and bar.
