The Grill House. 1071 32nd St, Allegan, Michigan
(269) 686-9192

If you love Steak, this is your place.

I love this place. You pick out your cut of meat from their vast showcase, THEN. You walk over the their red hot grills and enjoy being the chef. There is thick Texas toast bread to lather with butter, sprinkle on garlic powder and throw on the grill while you’re steak is cooking. Included sides are baked potato with butter, sour cream, grated cheese, freshly diced green onion, baked beans, grilled onions, and spices. The meal comes with a garden salad. .
There are additional sides such as portobello mushrooms and mixed vegetables .
If you don’t want to cook your meal, the restaurant will have one of their chefs cook for you.
The restaurant has a separate menu if you want sandwiches, salads, or entree.
There is a full bar available.
We always cook our own dinner, as its so much fun to cook your steak, toast the bread and talk and have fun doing it.
During the summer months the outside seating in their swinging picnic tables is a blast. Yes I said swinging tables. The whole table with seats and awning swing back n forth… You gotta try it.

5 stars. Enjoy…..

We drove over to show a good friend from California the town of Saugatuck. It was 2:45pm in the afternoon so we stopped in at The Butler for a late lunch.
Our waitress was Nikki. We started with some water with EXTRA lemon, and an iced tea.
For appetizers We tried a small basket of their beer battered onion rings, beer battered french fries, the bacon wrapped Scallops and the crab stuffed mushroom caps.
The onion rings were crisp on the outside and the large slices of onion were tasty. The fries, looked more like a frozen fries we get at a Jack in the Box… Did not look freshly made at all, but were crisp and tasted good.

The bacon wrapped scallops were kinda chewy, the bacon was crisp, but did look a little over cooked.
The crab stuffed mushrooms, were drenched in melted cheese, and frankly, none of us ever tasted any crab.

We ordered a cup of Butler New England Clam Chowder, the Perch sandwich and a Cherry Chicken and Walnut salad.

The soup and salad were both good, the Perch was a little over fried/cooked, dry and mostly tasted like corn meal with not much fish flavor.

Some of our party had been to The Butler numerous times before and said that this was not one of the finer days they had dined there.

Nikki took good care for us. Thanks

3 stars…
