Party of 4 for lunch. Took 45 minutes to get our food. Waitress was very nice and apologetic for the wait. When the food came out the order wasn't correct. We didn't care and ate it anyway because we didn't want to wait any longer. Solid bar food, nothing special. Don't go if you're in a hurry.

We originally sat outside and wanted to start our meal with a beer. After waiting a LONG time (and the patio wasn't crowded) We asked the waitress for a taste of 2 beers and she told us we had to go to the bar because she didn't want to carry the samples out to us. So we moved inside. Nikki... More

Popped in here on a weeknight with my kids when it's not so crowded. Menu choices were good - my teenage son had a burger, my tween girl had a ceasar salad, and I had the fish (perch) and chips. Portions were big, left with doggie bags. Drink menu was also good, nice themed cocktails and lots of beer selections.... More

We stopped in for a quick business lunch. Food was good and service was friendly. The really cool thing was they offer tater tots with sandwiches and they were wonderful. Stop by and have a drink and a sandwich.

I call it like i see it folks. And that is very weak food and average booze. Its just fine for a nice little spot to get a alchee buzz and have some wingz and burger, thats about it. Sorry but Im not a fan of this place and I have lived in South Haven for 20+ years

This place was perfect for a family with 2 kids who don't want to have a food ad adventure. One got chicken strips and fries and the other the spaghetti. We had the perch sandwich. Everything was good. Our server was nice enough to turn the fans down when noticing how cold my mother-in-law was. They have an upper deck... More

The slowest and rudest service you can imagine. Save you're time and do not stop here! We gave up and paid for the one drink we got within 45 minutes.

Living in South Haven I have been to Joe's probably 100 times. No kidding. 100 times. In all those times I have waited for my food maybe twice, and that was because they were very, very busy. They always seem to have 6-8 servers, and everyone is very casual and friendly. The bartenders are super. Nikki, Jimmie, and the young... More

We have eaten at Joe's every time we have visited South Haven on and off Season. We have always had great service including the last visit during the Winterfest. It was packed, with a band, locals everywhere and they still treated us great! We haven't tried anything other than their burgers and drinks but they are delicious. Looking forward to... More
