We just ate here this past Saturday night while visiting the area. We had reservations at another restaurant but changed to Hawks Head after the manager of the motel validated what most of the reviews were saying. From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be a special meal. They gave us a choice of tables and... More

Thank you for choosing HawksHead for your celebration. Chef Paul Adams has a way with making each Sea to Table special and his sauces can't be beat. Every dish he produces has such wonderful flavors as you found out. We appreciate the review and your visit. We hope that you bring your friends and visit us again soon. More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews my wife and I decided to give HawksHead Restaurant a try. It is a little bit out of the way (+/- 15 minutes drive from the South Haven beach district) but the drive is easy and well marked with signs that direct you to the HawksHead resort. From the moment we arrived until the moment we... More

I realize that golfers won't believe that there's anything that's more than golf, but this restaurant is well worth a visit just for the restaurant. This was only our first night in South Haven and we based our decision on where to have dinner on the positive reviews by Tripadvisor. There are six in our family, all adults. Among the... More

We love South Haven, but it can be pretty crazy in the summer. This inn was close enough for us to enjoy the excitement of a harbor town in summer, but when we were tired we appreciated the restful and restorative atmosphere of HawksHead Inn, less than ten minutes from the center of town. The food was outstanding -- we... More

Thank you for such a glowing review! We are that little piece of paradise in an out of way place. It's only 7-10 minutes from South Haven so it's totally possible to enjoy the fun downtown but then come to us for a chance to rest and recharge. We are excited that you had a great time and we look... More

Not expecting such outstanding food at a small out-of-the-way B n' B. As in, gourmet in the country. I am going back again this year and looking forward to it!
