We stopped here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. There was a decent crowd, but since we arrived fairly late in the breakfast period, we were seated quickly. We ordered some basic breakfast plates (eggs, hash browns, meat, etc.). One thing we did notice was the fairly good value of the side dishes; my wife ordered a side of sausage... More

We went here 1 time. We will not try it again. the prices were very high for what it is. The service is absolutely ridiculous! I think we were here over 2 hours (and it was empty) for a simple meal. Food was just ok.

Wow they are good, this place is one of the best lunch sandwiches and wrap places around, and carries Sherman's Ice Cream. Have I mentioned how GREAT their CBR Wrap is? Because it is the best I've ever had.

I took the adult kids to a local wine tasting venue and after several tastings, we had to get a quick bite to eat. Captain Nemos satisfied the need but it wasn't as amazing as I had hoped. If you have to put something on you tummy, this is a good place to do it, but if you're looking for... More

Love this place. Every time I come to South Haven I stop into Captain Nemos. Nothing to rich or roomy about it, its a small town feel with friendly staff.

Went there for ice cream. It was average, at best. Waiting for 30 minutes to be served. The place was dirty, serviced by young, overworked kids and the line was poorly managed. Should have gone to Kilwins
