Went there for ice cream. It was average, at best. Waiting for 30 minutes to be served. The place was dirty, serviced by young, overworked kids and the line was poorly managed. Should have gone to Kilwins

We were on a trip from Holland MI to Chicago travelling the shore of Lake Michigan and happened on this restaurant. Just a great place with excellent wait staff who made sure our coffee cups were full. Highly recommend.

Great place to get great coffee early in the morning. There weren't many restaurants open early so this was a treat.

Went to Captain Nemos this past Wednesday. It is a very small space with a lot happening in it. They were busy and the service was a bit slow in part due to that. The staff was very pleasant. We ordered the fried pickles which were AMAZING!! They were literally fried lightly breaded dill spears, yum!! I had the cordon... More

My friends and I ordered sandwiches to pick up on the way back from the beach. I chose one of their specialties - Italian Beef. It was supposed to be Roast Beef with Mozzarella, sautéed peppers and onions on a sub roll. The roast beef was gray and had no taste, there were no peppers, two lonely pieces of very... More

We had an affordable and tasty breakfast. Our daughter loved the Mickey Mouse pancakes. The staff were attentive and cheerful. Recommended!

I hate to say it, but a tad pricey for the fare, but hey...it is a tourist town and this location is right in the middle of it. I don't want to sway you from eating there...just be aware you are paying for location and chance to get great ice-cream!

We came here on a Thursday night in summer about 45 minutes before the posted closing time and the place was way busier than I anticipated. We had just arrived in town and wanted a relatively quick dinner without having to go the fast food route. It took about 45 minutes from being sat to get our food and we... More

Visited Captain Nemos with family of 4 on Saturday afternoon during the Annual Blue Berry Festival This is a busy time in South Haven and we went to this restaurant/ice cream parlor because it was pretty much the only restaurant in town without a wait. We got our drinks pretty quickly. After we got our orders in we waited at... More
