We were in South Haven for the weekend for an anniversary trip. I had seen Clementine's advertised in the town guide, so I checked out their online menu. It looked like they had some good, well-priced options, so we went there for a late lunch on our first day in town. Our very helpful waiter helped us order (there was so much to choose from, we were at a loss!), and we enjoyed the food so much that we went back to the same restaurant the next day (leaving the over-priced foods and surprising crowds of Saugatuck to drive back, in fact)! We live about 2 hours away, but we're already planning day trips to come back to South Haven and Clementine's and bring some of our friends with us. It's that good.

Clementines' has been my favorite restaurant in South Haven,since it opened in April 1982....the sevice has always been excellent the food great,I realize with the economy the portion size has decreased(not by much)and the price increased(as in every restaurant everywhere) but my favorite is the Buffalo Wings done like the originals from Frank and Theresas' anchor Bar in Buffalo,New York I rank Clems wings as a close second or a tie

There is normally a line to get into Clems so plan ahead. Service is nearly always good. The food is what you would expect at a standard bistro - hot, tasty and large portions. They have been serving huge onion rings on a 6 or 12 inch pole since they opened. The bar is long and a very old antique with a history. The restaurant used to be a bank from the turn of the century (not this one, the last one), with brick walls and high ceilings made of tin (old photographs were used to restore the exterior). If you've read a bad review, trust me it was not a normal experience. We've eaten there over 100 times since 1982.

On the way back from Chicago, we wanted to be sure to stop for a quick bite at Clementine's due to it's good, long standing reputation. We were so disappointed! I can see why it's a staple for the local community, and maybe the bar area is worthwhile, but perhaps we just caught them on a bad day. Although there was plenty of room elsewhere, we were seated right next to a wedding party, and we were actually crowded out by the wedding cake table!

The appetizers we got were just mediocre, and we were pretty much ignored. We decided to forego a full meal, and high-tailed it out of town.
