The Boathouse at Saugatuck
Nestled inside the Saugatuck Rowing Club, The Boathouse at Saugutuck, a Zagat-rated eatery, serves upscale American fare amid sweeping views of the lower Saugatuck River. Owner, chef, and part-time beer brewer John Holzwarth honed his craft under the tutelage of master chefs Fortunato Nicotra and Lidia Bastianich, and The Boathouse's menu reflects his love of creating seasonal dishes or reproductions of Mona Lisa from local, organic, and sustainable foods. The waterside restaurant tops linen-covered tables with red-wine-braised beef brisket served with roasted shallot and buckwheat polenta, fresh lobster, and homemade ravioli stuffed with heirloom apple or golden hubbard squash.
