When I travel to a beach town, I expect to eat excellent seafood. We decided, upon the recommendation of a couple of locals, to eat at Clementine's. The ambience of the restaurant leaves nothing to be desired as it is a large historical building with many architectural features to be admired. Even though we ate at the bar because the... More

If you have to wait, there is plenty of room to sit outside or in and do so. The food was good, and reasonably priced. The service was pretty good as well considering how busy they were. I would go back again.

The OMD was French bread with sea food and veggies covered with Cheese, quite good. The onion rings are a must and come on a six or twelve inch stick. We can also recommend the Fiesta Salad. Pepsi products are available. The owners did a remarkable job in preserving the tin ceilings and chandeliers from the time it was a... More

We like to sit in the bar. But, it's a great place lots of History & fun decor. That said the service can be slow & long waits are the normal. I always enjoy the perch. But friends & family have enjoyed steak and other dishes ad well. Good food worth the trip. Try to go on off times for... More

Trying to find a place to eat on the weekend in South Haven is difficult in the summer and we decided to try to give this place a try considering the good reviews. As another reviewer pointed out they had good food but the manager, who I had to go through since we had a party of 11, was rude.... More

Mixed feelings because any time we tried to get in it was always over an hour wait time both lunch and dinner, therefore we have expected the food to be ‘wow’. Restaurant big and very busy, building itself is interesting (old bank with some authentic features and old pictures). Service and food was good - what you expect to be... More

This was the best steak I have had in a long time. I loved the atmosphere and our party all had great meals. Great wait staff also. If you want quiet and romantic don't go here. It is very family oriented and loud so perfect if you have children. The wait time is quite long in the evening but you... More

This is a great place to take visitors and the food is reliably good. Plan around the rush hour or make reservations. Very efficient and clear, and the food is good, but heavy.
