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.

My family and i visited South Haven twice this year for vacations. We had heard many good things about Clementine's so we decided to check it out. We tried to go to the restaurant numerous times but there was always a really long wait to get it (~1hr). This is often a good sign, so we came back multiple times... More

This is a favorite in South Haven. We visit several times a year. The staff was more interested in chatting than working. We were the only people in bar booths. 1 man at bar. Had to seat ourselves. No one at door? Waited awhile to be greeted. We finally had a server. Ordered a cocktail & asked a question. Ordered... More

I have been a resident of South Haven for 15 years and I must say you can find fancier cooking but not better this is the best value in town regardless of the wait it is well worth it
