My wife and home-from-college daughter and I spent the day in South Haven and went to Clementines for lunch. After a short wait, we were seated in the lovely old building and served by a young man who, despite his youth provided excellent service. My wife had seen an order of onion rings go by, and suggested we get an order. I had also seen that they had fried zucchini, which I love and hadn't had in several years. We got both. We also shared a salad and each ordered a different kind of sandwich. We ended up with food to take home for another day's lunch. All was very good and well-priced. But what we enjoyed the most were the onion rings and zucchini. Both were delicious, and went well with the house-made ranch dressing and dill sauce. But of the two, I have to say, the onion rings were the best I can recall ever eating. Delicious, crunchy batter on sweet, still slightly firm onions. Don't pass them up.

Decent food but nothing special. However it is immensely popular and you will have to wait if you don't get there early. The chowder and onion rings were delicious - perch sandwich was pretty average. Salads are iceberg, not mixed greens.

This is probably the most famous restaurant in South Haven, and the food is delicious! The pricing is moderate so everyone can enjoy. The atmosphere is great! No reservations, so plan on coming early if you want to get in quickly.

If you like frozen food from Gordon food service or Sysco and waiting no less than an hour then this is the place for you. No ambiance. Tons of obnoxious children. Average at best food. We do not see what the hype is for this place. There are tons of WAY better dining options in town.

We arrived at Clementine's and was seated right away. The waitress took our order and brought our drinks immediately. Our food arrived in a timely matter and was very good. We both loved the decorations and the location was just a few blocks away from the pier and the beach area.
