Great South Haven dining spot. Right on main street just up a couple of blocks from the beach. Does get busy so you might experience a wait. Great bar area and be sure to get a stack of onion rings. 6" or 12".

Clementines is so busy in the summer so it is nice to come here when it's not busy. There is a very interesting menu. We started with the delicious onion rings. There are about 8 hand dipped rings served on a tower. This is one of their specialty. They have 2 omelettes on their menu. I had a western style,... More

Went to Clementine's for dinner on a snowy night. Menu for a dinner is pretty boring and not a lot to choose from that looked good. When Fried Shrimp is the best meal with a steak, salad and fish dish to compete, it is not looking good. Nothing was great, but the service was good and drinks fair. Maybe will... More

Good food and good service -- we were last there on a very cold evening. It was not crowded as it can be during the summer season. Good food... but I cannot understand why they use plastic containers for cole slaw, condiments, etc.

The service was friendly and good, but the New Zealand mussels were totally covered with a lukewarm, weakly seasoned buttered canned spinach topping. This restaurant was recommended by locals as THE BEST restaurant in South Haven. I was totally disappointed.
