Great spot with a fun vibe, right on the water in downtown South Haven. Parking available in several free public lots in the surrounding blocks.

We stop in everyday every summer when we are in South Haven. The view is awesome. The staff is always great, so is the food and drinks. We always have a great time here.

We might of had a hard time finding the place as we were from out of town but once we got there it was so awesome. The view of the canal and the boats with the draw bridge was beautiful. You did not feel like...you were in Michigan felt like you were in a tropical place. The wait was a bit but wroth it. The food and drink was good.More

First time here and I didn’t even know about Admiral Jacks ! I ordered the walleye basket . My wife chicken strips. The walleye was dry and not very tasty for $20! The chicken was ok . Beautiful atmosphere setting next to the River ....The place became very crowded but everyone seemed good spirits.More

I really liked the atmosphere and the drinks were delicious! The service was quick and the waitress was very friendly. It did become a little crowded, but that is to be expected on a Saturday evening in July. I would definitely go back.

I can’t speak to the quality of the fries because my sandwich came with the kettle chips. Oh my, they were excellent! They came out warm and were perfectly seasoned. The blackened grouper sandwich was also very tasty and my friend really liked the walleye....Good service, clean bathrooms, and outside dining with great food made this a very pleasant dining experience.More

Over-seasoned Brussels, and don’t even bother with the lobster bisque. Do they think it’s acceptable to use Krab ‘meat’ in things? Sorry, doesn’t work for me. The bar was great , great location, music, but eat before you go. The coconut shrimp was good, typical...pub food. Go for a beer after the beachMore

The food here is sub-par. The bar service has always been good. We had the "walleye" basket and walleye sandwich. This was more like overdone perch for both. Tough and no flavor - a waste of fish. The coleslaw tasted like old dressing and the...fries like they had been reheated. We will probably not dine here again but would go for drinks at the bar. Disappointed as we were quite hungry.More

Admiral Jacks is a part of our annual trip to South Haven as a first night out. Great location on the river with the boat traffic and drawbridge operations. Always a real treat. We both had the fish bites. Service was good considering there were...people lined up to get in. We will be back in 2023!More

Family went here for lunch, and it was delicious! Not super kid friendly, but we made it work. It was right on the water and we could watch boats, which was an excellent distraction for my kids. We got chips and salsa. I got a...fish sandwich and my husband got a fish plate. My kids LOVED the tater tots! And the spicy tartar sauce was awesome with the fish! Service was great!

Visited on a Saturday evening, very busy. It came highly recommended. View and location is amazing, atmosphere is good, service is meh and food is poor. If they we got cocktails and boom boom shrimp. Dinner we had perch and cod. My perch was pretty...good but his cod was very over cooked! By the time the waitress check on us, my dinner was gone. She did get him an order of perch to replace the cod and took it off the bill which, was a bonus. I think I would give this place another chance. (Photo of over cooked cod)More
