They stole the Applebea's menu and put their name on it. Don't understand why everything has to be deep fried,

Expect to a wait a while during top hours - but worth it. We had a delicious late lunch including a sandwich and an omelette - the portions are more than generous so you will most likely have left overs but fresh and good as are the Bloody Marys :)

I would never attempt to dine here during "Tourist Season" but do in the off season. The food here is just average, nothing to get too excited about. They make real onion rings which you can not find everywhere so that may be an attraction. The building and location is a draw for many. We stopped in yesterday for lunch.... More

But the locals go there all year long. Onion rings on a stick are the best ever. The restaurant is an old bank building and has a diverse menu offering Hamburgers, sandwiches, pasta and more. No reservations and in season there are long waits.

The food is amazing no matter what time you get there. Staff is quick, efficient and super friendly! Drinks are cold and good. Casual dress or dressed up this place is the place to go!

From your first view walking through the door, you'll know you are in for a treat. The decor is great and so is the food. Enjoy!

We went there for dinner. Food was well prepared and had good flavor. Service was excellent. Reminded you of home style dining typical of American style cuisine....burgers wings sandwhiches. For the two of us we spent under 40 and that included appetizer and soup.

Nice restaurant, great food, good service and great atmosphere. This is not your high end restaurant, but it definitely gets busy at meal times. If long waits are not your style then I suggest going at an off time.

Great menu with so many choices we decided we'll just have to come back. Perch is never a disappointment.

Growing up in West Michigan, South Haven was a regular weekend destination. We've never been able to leave without having eaten a big stack of Clementine's onion rings! Now I bring my family every summer (and sometimes winter) to the big blue and they always want to eat at Clementine's. It's a family tradition that will continue for many years... More
