Snug Harbor--Grand Haven

My beautiful daughter in law and son were celebrating their anniversary and that prompted me to take them out for dinner.  They suggested Snug Harbor since I had never been there...and they were spot on for a fine dinner.

Our server greeted us promptly and delivered our beverage orders.  She never hovered but always appeared at the moment we needed service.  We began browsing the appetizer selections which included many good choices.  We  started with the Snug Harbor  Hummus Plate and the Chef's Choice Cheese Plate.  Since the plate changes daily, our server had to return to the kitchen to see what the night's selection would be.

While enjoying a beautiful West Michigan coast sunset, we scanned the menu for our entrée selections.   My daughter in law is vegetarian and the choices were slim.    She did choose the Grilled Portobella Sandwich featuring roasted red peppers, cheese and a basil aioli.

Other choices of the evening included the Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops,
The Orange Ginger Salmon and Seafood Penne.

The food was very good...and the waterfront setting couldn't be beat.  Snug Harbor also features a "South of the Snug Border" which features burritos, enchiladas and nachos.   We didn't order from that menu, but it did have appeal. 

.....from their website....          Welcome to Snug Harbor of Grand Haven Michigan!
Located on the harbor in Grand Haven, Michigan, Snug Harbor is a year round waterfront restaurant. From lunch to dinner, to cocktails and wines, you will experience exceptional waterfront views while dining.    For the past twenty years, Snug Harbor has been the choice of locals and tourists alike, who want to experience the changing seasons on Lake Michigan, as well as summer activities such as boating, fireworks and the world's largest musical water fountain.   Our outdoor 80 seat deck also offers panoramic views of the harbor and Lake Michigan. Also please consider us for your special banquets, corporate meetings and social activities.


Our dinner bill averaged to fifty per person, which was very reasonable for our food and service.   I would return to visit the other nearby restaurants that Snug Harbor operates.
