We went for a day trip to go to the shops and walk along the pier. Enjoyed eating lunch at Clementines. Our server was very personable and did well with the service. The food comes in large portions and is delicious. We even had a birthday dessert brought out which was very tasty. We enjoyed the steak for lunch and the apple dumpling. Will return when we are in the area.

My family thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and appreciated the care they took. On a Monday evening we had a 30 minute wait. Before we even sat down, we noticed they already had a children's menu on the table ready for us. our waiter, Ken, was extremely attentive. Our drinks were refilled before we ever asked. All the food was hot and delicious. We tried the French onion soup, shrimp, salad, bread, cole slaw, and kids chicken fingers. The food being served around us looked great too. I'd like to go back to try their perch or sandwiches! Highly recommend this establishment.

Saturday night had a 2 hour wait so we came back for a Monday lunch. Lunch was busy but no wait.
The Clementine has a nice old world decor. We enjoyed a booth with a view of the street so we could watch people, cars, and bikes go by. We ordered the fried zucchini appetizer as recommended by a local resident of South Haven. It was enough for 4 but the 2 of us ate the whole basket. We were in the mood for something different so we ordered the Cajun Seafood Gumbo. We each were served large bowls of rich spicy sauce filled with shrimp, scallops, and clams with a scoop of rice in the center. We love spicy food and this was satisfying. The garlic bread soaks up the sauce perfectly.
We were so full we did not have any desert.

We stopped in for an early supper on a Saturday in June around 4:30. With the crowds waiting outside, we wondered if we could get seated, but there was plenty of room for two - it was the larger family groups who were waiting for big tables. We opted to sit at the beautiful bar and it was a great decision. Our bartender offered a wide range of beers and pointed out the local favorites on the menu. We took his recommendation and tried the perch dinner, a freshwater fish from the Great Lakes. It was absolutely delicious - lightly breaded and fried but so light and tasty. A generous portion of fish came with authentic potato cakes and cole slaw. Overall, very yummy food at a fair price with great service. The bartender is a local native and readily offered answers to our questions about the area. We will go back and see him again on our next trip through South Haven.

Sometimes it's hard to get into Clementine's because of the waiting list. The line can get long outside if you don't come early enough. The food is excellent and the staff are very nice.
