We stopped in after sunset on the pier, and enjoyed excellent fish (perch), gumbo, strawberry shortcake and apple dumplings. The service was fast and friendly. Would recommend, and go again.

Clementine's is a "must" when we visit South Haven. The onion rings are "to die for". Service was great both days we ate there. Love the burgers and lake perch.

Well, as usual, not a disappointment. We started off with a bowl of sweet corn, seafood chowder. Yum! I got the shrimp Cajun pesto cream pasta with mushrooms and my wife got the cod sandwich luncheon special. It was all great. We arrived at 300pm,...More

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
