Slow service, average food, incredible ice cream

I came here for dinner with 3 friends around 5pm on a Tuesday. The place was pretty empty; I think only 2 other tables occupied. The waitress came over right away with menus and brought our sodas quickly. She took our order shortly after, but then it took like 30 minutes for one wrap, one sandwich... read more

In late June my wife, toddler-aged daughter and I found nemos more or less by accident. Great food, quick service, and a 2 minute wait for Sherman's ice cream. Of all the restaurants in south haven we tried this was by far our favorite for family friendly atmosphere.

On foot over the holiday weekend, I decided to get my Sherman's ice cream fix of Mackinac Island Fudge here, where I'd never been. Pretty slow line for just ice cream, pretty uninterested and admittedly pretty busy staff--one person scooping ice cream, another taking money. Prices on the board were "wrong" I was told. No listing for small, "baby" size... More

My family and I always spend a ton of money at Nemo's eating and sampling their Sherman's ice cream selections during our vacations to South Haven. Virtually each day we end up at the store. Their servings are always generous and the staff is always helpful. My favorites include the black cherry and the chocmania.

if you are visiting south haven and you want to know what the locals crave, then nemos is your place. Family owned and operated, all the food is cooked to order and just a great value for your money.

We stopped here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. There was a decent crowd, but since we arrived fairly late in the breakfast period, we were seated quickly. We ordered some basic breakfast plates (eggs, hash browns, meat, etc.). One thing we did notice was the fairly good value of the side dishes; my wife ordered a side of sausage... More

We went here 1 time. We will not try it again. the prices were very high for what it is. The service is absolutely ridiculous! I think we were here over 2 hours (and it was empty) for a simple meal. Food was just ok.

Wow they are good, this place is one of the best lunch sandwiches and wrap places around, and carries Sherman's Ice Cream. Have I mentioned how GREAT their CBR Wrap is? Because it is the best I've ever had.
