We went there with family on the weekend of the blueberry festival. The food was great and the service was wonderful. I would definitely go back when I am in South Haven again.

Great food! Everything that I've ever tried has been tasty. They give you a choice of sides including yummy soup instead of fries. Better than average service. Nice decor with pleasant surrounding. I will definitely go back in fact look forward to it.

The usual summer wait for a table, but the food is excellent. monster onion rings on a vertical stick are almost a meal in itself. This is a place we go back to when in town. Good selection of food items and beer and wine.We were too stuffed to go for dessert but it looked great.We will be back next... More

This was, I think, my third visit to Clementines, with the other two on a previous visit to south haven. I had the fish fry. It was fine. My blueberry lemonade was undrinkably sweet. The service was fine. The wait-about an hour- was ridiculous. I think this restaurant is rated highly because it is really the only game in town.... More

The best restaurant in South Haven, but ALWAYS a wait. Better to go on a weekday. Burgers, delicious potatoes, nice staff, a bit loud, fish option, lunch less busy than dinner.

My family of 5 ate here while visiting South Haven last weekend. Everything we ordered was fantastic!! 3 of us got steaks prepared different ways. All were delicious. I got the steak topped with mushrooms, crab, shrimp, and mozzarella. WOW it was good! Great atmosphere and very friendly waitstaff. Will definitely return when we're in South Haven again!

We had some friends recommend Clementines. Immediately, one notices the antique decor and history, a great feature. I was looking forward to the food knowing the ambiance was appealing. I was pretty disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the food wasn't bad, it just wasn't different. I got the Perch, which was tasty, but much of the menu is fried, which... More
