We stopped here coming back from Holland. It is easy to get to if you are on 196 and convenient if you are in South Haven. Very busy establishment with a nice waiting area.

When we go to South Haven - we always go to Clementine's. Can't go wrong - steak or shrimp. Definitely get the onion rings. Good prices for the amount of food you receive. Staff is very attentive.

We always have a good meal here. The wait in the summer is not usually worth it, but we enjoy going off season. The onion rings and nachos are amazing!

My wife and I stopped by a Clementine's Sunday afternoon. The food was very good as expected. We eat there about 2-3 times a week. The difference this afternoon was the server, Andy. He made the meal exceptional. He was very quick to meet our needs, very friendly. He made the afternoon meal exceptional.

This restaurant gets a lot of hype. It's a great family place- I've never been disappointed with the food or service. But I don't know if there's anything too special about it. However our guests had the perch and they raved about it! We will continue to visit for the consistency and family atmosphere.

We drove for 2 hours to get these onion rings and they seemed like they were cooked in old grease. They had a burnt -like taste to them. Was very disappointed.

Had lunch here. Food was good. Portions were generous. Service was good. It is a large place, so you shouldn't have to wait for a table.

The food is good, not great. it use to be great. The atmosphere is great, very interested building in a wonderful downtown area. The service is good, but often the wait is long. Try it off season or mid-week, great bar area. Prices are ok, not a great deal but not like downtown Chicago.

This restaurant has ambiance (former bank) some colorful local waitresses who are SUPER! It is busy, but the food is good and the service is fast. The menu is varied from chicken to burgers to steaks and fish. No disappointments here. A must every time we return to South Haven!
