Good cocktails, had a half-stack of onion rings that did not disappoint. Meals were excellent. Thai chicken linguine and salmon were incredible. Good, fast service. Get there early. It's a busy place.

Loved the onion rings, but the burger was average at best. Service was exceptional. Maybe I'm a bit of a food snob but I felt the burger was a little bland.

Ate lunch here. Historic and interesting interior. Eat in the bar area if available. The food is average. Located in the heart of downtown South Haven. Very crowded most of the time but our party of two was seated immediately. Varied menu. Reasonable prices.

I think they could. Depends on how early you go and what day. You could always call and ask if they could actually seat 20 people together. That would be my suggestion.

I'm sorry but we don't take reservations. We open at 11:00 on Sundays and are not usually terribly busy before noon. So if it is possible to be here around that time, it shouldn't be a problem getting a table. I also can... More
