My friend and I were visiting South Haven for a quick day trip and stopped by Clementines for lunch. Service was really quick and good. Food was very good. It's a nice atmosphere!

Now don't get me wrong.....during the summer season it does get a bit busy and the wait might be a little longer than you would want. But if you go in the off season, you are seated quickly! The food is awesome! The atmosphere is wonderful; makes me wish to go back in time and see how it used to... More

Visit Clementines every trip to South Haven. Their food is very good and they have a large menu with a variety of different items. They're famous for their onion rings and the perch, which are booth very good. Large beer menu and many different drinks. A good place to eat at.

Very nice atmosphere . Perch is supposed to be good. Ribeye steak is supposed to be good. I had chilled shrimp for an appetizer. They were good. I then had seafood gumbo for an entree. It was delicious. My buddy had the Mushrooms for an appetizer. Wow. Huge basket. I want to go back.

This restaurant is so beautiful because it is an old bank building and very nostalgic inside and out. The service was very good, our waitress even let me charge my camera battery. We ordered their best selling burger and french onion soup, all very good. We are not from this area but read many good reviews and decided to go.... More

We eat here every summer on our trip to South Haven! Fantastic food and ambiance! The onion rings are delicious and should not be missed! I do NOT like onions, and I LOVE these!

We spent the night in South Haven in a cute little B&B. We wanted a casual dinner where the "locals" go. We did not listen to the advice and ate at Clementine's. Very average. It's in a historic building and has an interesting story, but the food is nothing special...at all.

A number of locals said that they enjoy the food. It was okay. The kind of food that can be found any where. Ambience could have been warmer. Service was great.

This restaurant seldom takes reservations, but the place can accommodate a lot of people. Food is excellent, especially the lake perch and other fish. Our group of 14 called to check on availability and were advised to come over right away. No waiting and food arrived promptly. Great experience and atmosphere.
