Coral Gales: Perfect Location; Excellent Food

Before we left for Michigan, Mickey and I had perused the possible places to eat in Sagatuck. The one that we thought looked like a great location and had glowing reviews was called, of all things, Coral Gables

It is located on the waterfront and has been a very popular spot for 40 years. This is a family owned restaurant that features three restaurants and four bars with service inside or outside [on the deck overlooking the waterfront]. There is also a small gift shop in the establishment.

They have music, entertainment, and dancing on the weekends and more often in the peak summer months.

I took photo #1 from our table out on the deck. It was a lovely day with mild temperatures and sunshine. We had a choice of sun or shade and selected the shade, under a colorful table umbrella.

As usual, Mickey and knew that we would be sharing our meal and were perplexed because of all the tempting choices. It was difficult, but we decided on three items:

Favorite Dish: They have an extensive menu with several seafood choices. Mickey and I first selected a Greek Salad..see photo #3. It had olives and Feta cheese along with onions and lettuce..

Our second choice was Coconut Shrimp in a nice proportion [8 pieces so we each had 4].
We were so thrilled with the looks and the taste of the shrimp that I forgot to take a photo!

Our third choice was a Lake Perch Sandwich accompanied by Sweet Potato Fries [as shown in photo #4] The 1/2 sandwich that we each enjoyed was very good. I'm not a potato fan, but the sweet potato fries were good..

Needless to say, we were full by the time we were finished. The ambience was perfect, the food was excellent, and the service was good. A smart choice.
