Went here for breakfast/lunch. The atmosphere had a great diner feel and the help was very nice. Everyone at the table loved their breakfast food but I got the pancakes and I can honestly say they were the worst I've ever had. When I tried to move one with my fork, it broke in half it was so hard. But... More

Stopped here for lunch after walking around the downtown area. The restaurant is very kid friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. The food is terrific and not overpriced. As a side note, when ordering ice cream and asking for a small ice cream cone, their small ice cream cone is very large and hard to finish. Very good value for... More

Recently visited this restaurant for lunch (it was recommended to us) and we did not have a good experience. It was rather busy (they have a walk-in ice cream counter as well as a sit-down restaurant and they appeared to be way understaffed. We waited for 45 minutes for our food. The waitress came out and said it was going... More

We didn't eat here - only ate delicious ice cream. This place gets packed and only has one tiny bathroom but it's a great place to grab some Sherman's ice cream (the actual plant is out by the Walmart). Tons of flavors to choose from - a bit pricey but the serving size is large.

Popped in for a quick sandwich after viewing several movies at the film festival. Great soup, nice sandwich. Staff friendly and attentive. Really wanted to try to ice cream, but saved that for another day when it wouldn't be so close to dinner time.

We stopped for a quick lunch. Both soups our family tried were delicious! Kids menu is limited but includes the basics - grilled cheese, hot dog, and PB & J. Service was fast and friendly. We'd come again.

I personally love ice cream, and in my opinion, this is the best spot to get some in South Haven. I love the grasshopper ice cream, which is one of my top reasons to come here.

The food is what it is, standard dinner fare. The service is slowwwwww. I almost decided to have dessert first because the plus side to this place is that they carry Sherman's Ice Cream. Don't be in a hurry.
