Excellent pie and breakfast

This is a diner-style Midwestern restaurant...you will find no Sriracha, aioli, free range beef or mixed greens here. We're talking crinkle cut fries and iceberg lettuce with the ambience to match. That said up front, they do a great breakfast and great pie and the service is generally good to... read more

We decided to spend 6 nights at the Cousins RV Park and upon arrival needed some lunch. There were 3 of us and 2 of us had their chicken salad wrap with fries. It was tasty with sweet bits of craisans, grapes and nuts, and the fries were perfect. One of us had the club sandwich which was truly stacked... More

We enjoyed breakfast with a good selection and lunch also. Nothing fancy just good service and plain cooking with quite a variety to choose.

This is an older cafe/diner style restaurant. Cheap eats that are good. Actually my over hard eggs were cooked to perfection, with no crispy edges. Waffle with really fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream were great. Coffee is very good. Went back for a quick dinner. The hot roast beef with mashed potatoes. And green beans was good for 8$.... More

we recently visited Cousins twice during our long holiday weekend in South Haven and we're not disappointed! Very slow service but everyone is so friendly and the food was great! Try the turkey Club sandwich and you won't be disappointed! It reminded me of the yummy Club sandwiches I used to eat when I was a kid! The omelette a... More

7/8/15@12:30pm. Well not to sure where to start. This place has been in business just short of 25 years which is an incredible feat for any eatery. With that said, they have seen better times, the help is mainly highschool kids which is ok but they just dont seem to really care about what they are doing. Our waitress had... More

I don't know how they continue with the terrible food they serve. Went twice within this month for meetings and lunch (or breakfast as they serve breakfast all day I believe) First time had hot beef type lunch it was horrible tasted like gravy out of a jar. Next time I thought well lunch was not good I will go... More

Our meal started off with our waitress either being too tired, new, or not caring. She took our orders and it took a while for our food to come out. That was understandable because they were pretty busy. What wasn't acceptable was her inability to fill our drinks until we asked at the end of our meal along with our... More

The breakfast was good, service was good. Nothing too fancy, just a good old American eggs, potatoes, meat, and toast kind of thing. The biscuits and gravy was great! Everything was clean and cooked well. Seemed like a local favorite.
