We were in South Haven for a short get away and wanted a place to eat and watch the Hawks game. A local suggested that the Black River Tavern would be the perfect place...and they were right!
Nothing fancy here but tons of TVs. Lot's of wood with a large community table in the center. Bar games in the back, darts and pool table. The whole crowd was into the game. The place was super loud so be prepared.
The service was efficient and very friendly. Any request was completed promptly without any complaints, even though two us only ordered water.
Surprisingly, for a bar, the food was stunningly good! Two of us ordered the perch tacos and one the perch dinner. Both were fantastic! The perch was fried perfectly, crispy not oily and wonderful. The tacos came dressed with the chipolte aioli and the dinner gave you a choice of either tartar sauce or the aioli....go with the aioli it's great! Finally we had one order of the pork sliders on a pretzel bun. The person in our party that ordered these said that they were the BEST she had EVER had! It's those sliders that seal the fifth star for the local hangout.
