We had dinner and ice cream. The service was great, but the food was average. Ice cream was very good and they have many choices of ice cream. Next time, we will go somewhere else for dinner and stop in for ice cream.

Needed some ice cream on a hot day, and I'm glad I stopped in. The choices all looked delicious, and the serving sizes were huge.

Friend and I had lunch here one day. The food was excellent and the service was too. I have been here more than once and everything I have tried has been excellent. Nice atmosphere as well.

I went here with my cousin during memorial day and got some breakfast at the buffet. The service was WONDERFUL and everyone was extremely nice and welcoming. The restaurant was very busy but the owner still managed to talk to us and be super friendly....More

My wife and I hit this place daily on our South Haven trips. They have the best ice cream and the staff there is always polite and helpful.

I brought my kids here for lunch and unfortunately had not so great experiences. We were one of 2 tables in the entire place and it took nearly a half hour to receive our sandwiches. I have 1 very picky toddler that I asked for...More

Didn't know how good a sub sandwich could be until I tried a Captain Nemos! Family owned and nothing but high quality meats and cheeses! My new favorite sub place!
