The fountain is closed during the off season, but they have a HUGE selection of souvenir shirts, hats, etc. The staff was very nice and you need to go in and see all the stuff!

I have used them for prescription (excellent service) and to find a little something-something. They have a bit of everything. Beach umbrellas, cards, games, t-shirts, sweatshirts. I could go on....check them out if you are in town.

The Saugatuck Drug store is in the heart of Saugatuck, and is famous for its' genuine soda bar in the back of the store. They have everything from moccasins to maps and kites to coloring books.

We had a great time at the soda fountain. Still serves all you loved in the 50's and 60's. The 1 scoop ice cream was more than enough for 2 to share. I had to have a Vanilla Coke, soda style. I was in heaven....More

The staff seems a little stuck up to me. They seem not to want to help when you need help. But the soda fountain is great. Food is amazing

It was the last day of our trip and we had hit many of the top rated restaurants in the city and nothing had really impressed me yet. We went here the afternoon we left and got there as the place opened at 11am. Sometimes...More

Stopped in for a treat in the soda fountain. Ice cream soda was loaded with ice cream and probably the best I've ever had. A little bit of nostalgia sitting at the drug store counter!

Lots of neat gifts and souvenirs of all kinds. The soda fountain takes you back a few decades, that's for sure. Fun place to browse.

Description
This Old Fashioned Soda Fountain is a staple for locals in Saugatuck. It has been here since 1913. It is in the back of the drug store. Coincidentally, kiddie-corner to Kilwins. What is great about this soda fountain, is that they do make old-fashioned sodas with heaps of ice-cream - and local Hudsonville Ice-Cream. Even better, this is a hidden gem for families in this ever-so growing, expensive tourist town (I am from nearby Grand Rapids....and FYI...the reason I had so many reviews last year, I took a year off to explore my #1 passion -traveling- from my real job (litigation); so if you would like an attorney turned writer/traveler/reviewer, I would be a great fit. But why it is a hidden gem for families: the Soda Fountain has hot dogs, fries, small $3 pizzas, pretzels - all the small stuff little kids love and that would make them happy after a hot day on the boat or at the beach, along with a small ice-cream cone or old-fashioned root-beer float. It's a great place.
