We waited for about 1 and 1/2 hours, was very busy, but once we sat down, the service was the best. The waiter was the kindest I've ever seen. He apologized for making us wait. I had black bean burger called butchwaker. The best, I asked for a soup of the day which was cream of asparagus, he told me... More

Clementine's in South Haven, MI is in an old bank, I believe, and is very interesting on the inside. The line is almost always long as there are people waiting outside. I finally decided to try this restaurant. I felt the prices reflected the atmosphere more than the food, and the food was average.

The onion rings-oh my!! Server was awesome! The drunken sailors were exactly what I had hoped for! Can't wait to go back!

We were initially told a minimum 2 hour wait for a party of 6 on a Saturday night. They took our phone number and said they'd call if something became available sooner. Bart (the manager) called back in 35 minutes. Menu had a great variety and was delicious!

Living in South Haven means you visit Clementine's at least twice a year. This historic venue is beautiful and located right in the downtown SH area which is always convenient. My favorite dishes from here are the tower of onions rings, the Oh My Darling and the gumbo. Every time I order those they are hot and fresh. The areas... More

We always go to Clementine's when we go to Lake Michigan, once or twice a year. We always love it, but I wondered if things had gone down hill a little according to some of the reviews. We were taking someone new with us so was a little apprehensive. Jenny waited on us, we got a beer while we waited... More

Clementine's was a great spot for dinner. Large menu with a variety of items including omelets. A gluten-free menu is also available. We did not have to wait as we were there on a weekday around 430p. Bar area looked nice, although it was a little to early for it to be "hopping". Portions were large enough we had leftovers... More

We ate here twice during our stay because my teenagers loved it so much. My 15-year-old pronounced himself in hamburger heaven after polishing off one of their burgers. Great service, reasonable prices, good variety. Definitely recommend this one!

We have gone to South Haven every summer for the last 5 years or so. We eat at Clementine's every year. It is average. The service has always been good. The food is typical and nothing like what I expected after all the raving I have heard.

This place is like that place that has a big red chili pepper out front. We went for lunch & was put on a waiting list. Didn't have to wait long. 5-10 minutes. We went in, the store was very clean, nice atmosphere. Wife had the Claim Jumper. Croissant chicken breast, crab & shrimp Alfredo sandwich. It was very good.... More
