This restaurant is fine. In a town with not much going on it was one of the best sounding places I could find. I had a piece of fish, which was pretty small and my wife had a salad. The food was alright, the cocktails...More

The service was very slow. We waited about 45 minutes with 3 kids for our food. After 30 minutes I asked for bead and butter which we quickly devoured. The kids had burgers and chicken tenders and seemed satisfied. We had the perch, pan-fried and...More

Off the main drag in South Haven, and not very busy when we got there late. My pan fried perch was good, my husband's battered/fried whitefish was just ok. Our waitress was very accommodating, however, letting us try a type of beer we'd never had...More

If you enjoy a fabulous bouillabaisse, this is the place!! However, our waitress did spill my husband's dinner on him with no hint of compensation (he did catch the flying hot fish).

The menu was limited, but everything we ordered was wonderful. The problem was service. We were told on a Thursday evening that there would be 30-45 minute wait. There were several open tables, so we assumed they were short on servers. We watched people leaving...More

The service and food were good. The booths are made comfortable with the addition of cushions for your back. The beer prices are of good value. They carry only dry white wines which was disappointing. I liked the music playing in the background. It seems...More
