We chose this place to meet friends as a halfway to each other destination a few years back, and we always find ourselves deciding to do it again. We have always enjoyed good meals, great lake perch (which can be added on to any entree order), and a delightfully festive environment that always makes us feel completely unhurried and unharried

My family and I were in South Haven for a family reunion and everyone we talked to recommended Clementines and we were really glad we went! There were 11 of us ranging from 4-83 years of age and everyone was happy. In particular the green lipped mussels and the tower of onion rings were highlights but the best part was... More

Our first visit was very good. We had the Lake Perch and they were cooked to perfection, very tasty. Our next visit was accompanied by the Broiled & Cajun Walleye, also very well done. We always look forward to visiting this establishment because it has never been a disappointment.

Had dinner with coworker tonight. I ordered the "tugboat Annie" which is a steak topped with mushrooms, crab, and shrimp. Sounded yummy. The steak was cooked to medium rare as ordered, but there was absolutely no flavor. No spices, no seasonings. The shrimp that topped my steak were about 1/2 inch long, the tiny shrimp you get out of a... More

Large menu and great lunch! I had the Claim Jumper Sandwich and the Broccoli and Cheese Soup. Clementine's signature drinks were also delicious. They were able to accommodate our large group of 9, and the service was excellent!

This place has it all. It is large, has great food, and good service. Don't miss the onion rings. Ribs are a great choice as well as the steaks.

What more can be said about Clementine's. Good food that you can read about in all of the other reviews. We've had it all over the many years. BUT, as seniors, each visit is getting a little bit "harder" as all of your seating is hard wood chairs and booths. Please add some cushion seating especially in the bar area... More

Clementine's has been around forever and used to be a bank a long time ago. It's vintage charm still remains and is a neat, unique place to dine. It is a favorite amongst locals and tourists alike and usually has a long wait in the summers, but there is a seating area inside and outside and a bar area inside... More

There were a lot of people waiting outside when we went for lunch during labor day weekend but we got 5 spots at the bar and really enjoyed our lunch and onion rings especially. The gumbo wasn't up to standard though.
