Good food and reasonably priced

We went here on a Saturday at lunch time and had no trouble getting a table. The service was friendly and fast, and the food was very good especially for the low prices. The onion rings are delicious, and you should definitely consider them as an appetizer choice. The chicken pot pie soup was also... read more

I had an open-faced sandwich of crab and shrimp on french bread with broccoli medley. It was delicious. It was well worth waiting in line for.

When we arrived in town at 6 pm on a Saturday night, there was a 1.5 hour wait. Keep this in mind. We just shopped around the town while we waited. Once inside, we really enjoyed our meals. The appetizers are huge, don't order one just for yourself! Our party ordered a variety of entrees, including ribs, steak, pasta. We... More

We had the 6" onion rings, one word, delicious! We sat at the bar because it was going to be a 40 minute wait for a table. Our bartender/server was great. She gave us the heads up on a certain sandwich indicating it was pretty bland, so didn't order. So glad for the honesty. Our bloodys were FABULOUS! Clementines was... More

By far the best (and most popular) restaurant in South Haven. Right downtown in an old bank building. Atmosphere was really great. Food was terrific. We had the "Tugboat Annie" which was a 9 oz Black Angus steak covered in mushrooms, crab meat and shrimp; then smothered with mozzarella cheese sauce.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary. The food was great, the atmosphere was great, the service was great. The prices were comparable to the afore mentioned. We traveled about 1.25 hours and arrived early to avoid a long wait & walked right in to be seated. I find it difficult to read the negative reviews founded... More

My parents and I wanted somewhere we knew was good to eat. The wait was 40 minutes which we didn't mind. That's just the kind of thing you can't really help. The restaurant was charming and the food was good. I had a burger, fries, and wings for an appetizer. It was cute and the food was alright.

Must start by saying if you eat here, you will wait for a while. But with good reason. It is very good. Every item we got was fabulous!! Best onion rings and hot wings that we have ever had. Burgers were great, crab and shrimp sandwich was great. The perch was awesome. Great mojitos as well!! Definitely worth eating!!!

I gave clementine a 5 star rating because my kids loved it. They had the kids burger and chicken fingers. The atmosphere inside is good, and the onion rings were really good. My husband had the perch sandwich and I had the tugboat Annie steak, both were specialties on their menu. Both were merely okay. The fries were probably the... More
