We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us. Our place has such a peaceful feel about it. It is only about 10 minutes from downtown South Haven, but it feels like miles away. We hope you visit again soon.

They have limited seasonal hours in the winter, but they may be shifting to the spring/summer hours soon. As suggested above, give them a call. The dining experience is worth the extra work.

Description
HawksHead is known for it's amazing cuisine, peaceful setting, and lovely golf course. We are only 7-10 minutes from downtown South Haven, but it feels like miles away. It's a world away from all the hustle and bustle and gives you that special place to relax and unwind.
