Predictable food and service. This place is a local and tourist favorite. All around pretty good food. We were with a large party, and I didn't hear any complaints in regard to food or service. Friendly staff. We will be back.

Some of the best onion rings I have ever had, they come on a 3 foot post. The burgers were also very good.

My wife and I were staying in South Haven and decided to give this place a try. First off, it's a wonderful building located in the downtown area. Inside is pretty nice too. From what I can see, there's always a line. We waited about 5 minutes and were seated. Our service was really good. The food was good but... More

After 30 minute wait we entered the cavernous dining area that once housed a bank. Started off with 6" of onion rings - best I've had! Pan fried perch was excellent and portions were more than generous. Most servers looked like college workers. Their attire was shorts & athletic shoes - needed for their fast pace movement. Excellent service. Great... More

I enjoyed eating here with family. The noise level can be on the loud side, as other reviewers noted. We loved the onion rings and the steak dinner was reasonably priced. Be prepared to wait during prime dining hours. Would return there if I am in South Haven again.

On our second visit to South Haven we returned to Clementine's. We actually went to a different restaurant first and left there to come back here. There is always a wait and it's always worth it.
