Off the Beaten Track

This restaurant is located off the beaten track, outside of town and the usual crowd. Found the food and service to be very good. Nice menu selection and good cocktails for a not too high price.

We had dinner at the HawksHead Restaurant Saturday, April 19 and it was delicious. I ordered white fish and my husband had pork medallions. We were guests for dinner of another generous couple and passed an easy, relaxed evening at a well appointed table looking through windows that faced a wooded area. In South Haven it is difficult to find... More

My wife and I chose to have a Friday night dinner at Hawkshead for some fine dining. I was disappointed. My ribeye was more fat than expected. It was so fatty I could not eat it. The service on a not very busy Friday night was very slow. The appetizer was pretty good and my wife's filet was pretty good.

This was a pleasant comfortable stay. The only suggestion we have is to make coffee available for early risers. I get up at 5:00 and had to wait until 8:30 for coffee. Dinner was excellent.

I read a lot of reviews that mentioned the lobster bisque soup at Hawkshead restaurant. My wife loves lobster bisque so I thought that this would be a great restaurant to try out. We went there on a sunny day for lunch when we were on a short vacation to the west coast of Michigan. The restaurant wasn't too busy... More

We recently stayed at the Hawkshead Inn, played the Links on Saturday, ate dinner in the restaurant and stayed the night. As always, the entire staff was courteous and attentive to our needs. Our group of 10 had a wonderful time and we all look forward to coming back to this location, as we have been for the past 10+... More

My husband and I eat at Hawkshead often because it is very good, the people are friendly and we like the setting. Last night we shared a filet - it was fabulous! One of the best steaks I've had, even at much more expensive steak restaurants.

We had my sister Rehersal dinner here and couldn't have been happier. We had ribs and they were falling right off of the bone! The potatoes and summer vegetables were amazing but the strawberry icebox pie was to die for! I promise you will not be disappointed to eat here. This is a South Haven MUST and I will be... More

Nicest staff, comfortable enjoyable atmosphere on patio. Excellent food. We enjoyed a bar-b-q buffet that served 45 guest. Everyone raved about the food. Excellent chef, great staff will treat you well. 5 star treatment. Will visit again.
