We are a large family with 8 children and we visited Clementines for dinner on a Tuesday night. On our past trips to South Haven we've always wanted to try this restaurant but the weekend waits are ridiculously long. So we had a free weekday this time and thought we'd give it a try. Despite our large family, they had... More

My wife and home-from-college daughter and I spent the day in South Haven and went to Clementines for lunch. After a short wait, we were seated in the lovely old building and served by a young man who, despite his youth provided excellent service.

Decent food but nothing special. However it is immensely popular and you will have to wait if you don't get there early. The chowder and onion rings were delicious - perch sandwich was pretty average. Salads are iceberg, not mixed greens.

This is probably the most famous restaurant in South Haven, and the food is delicious! The pricing is moderate so everyone can enjoy. The atmosphere is great! No reservations, so plan on coming early if you want to get in quickly.

If you like frozen food from Gordon food service or Sysco and waiting no less than an hour then this is the place for you. No ambiance. Tons of obnoxious children. Average at best food. We do not see what the hype is for this place. There are tons of WAY better dining options in town.

I had a delicious dinner of lake perch. They were seasoned well and the service was very good. To avoid a wait, my husband and I ate at the bar which was very comfortable. We will go back next time we are in South Haven.

We arrived at Clementine's and was seated right away. The waitress took our order and brought our drinks immediately. Our food arrived in a timely matter and was very good. We both loved the decorations and the location was just a few blocks away from the pier and the beach area.

Great established restaurant in South Haven. A must stop at right on the main street in town. The food and atmosphere is great. I love the onion rings and their perch sandwich is awesome.
