When we visit South Haven, we love to stop in Captain Nemo's. It's in a great location downtown, the food is good, and the staff is friendly!

We love ice-cream so we couldn't pass this place up! It was very tasty and lots of options. They are ALWAYS busy, so be prepared to wait a bit. They also have other things besides ice-cream.

Everyone raves about the ice cream. We found it to be just okay. The staff is friendly, but the product is overrated. We tried several flavors -- the rainbow was by far the best. Go down the block to Kilwins for really rich and flavorful ice cream. We did not order food.

Outstanding service and friendly atmosphere. Lots of items on menu and a full ice cream bar. Food was really good and at a fair price. Definitely would go back for lunch.

The hamburgers and gyro sandwich are good. They are better than fast food at a comparable price. This is not a fancy restaurant, simple menu and simple food. I usually get a sandwich and ice cream and I am satisfied. Caution: During summer weekends in the evening, many people come here to get Sherman's ice cream. The wait can be... More

You can sit at a booth and have a decent diner meal--the grilled cheese is actually very good, but the real draw here is the locally produced Sherman's Ice Cream. In the evening the line can be out the door, but it moves quickly. There is a large assortment of flavors and the prices are very, very reasonable. (Try the... More

The staff was very friendly and showed great hospitality. The majority of the restaurant had seats for 4 people but they do have a section they accommodated for a large group. There is a large selection of food for all tastes as well as an ice cream bar if you're just looking for a treat. We had the regular cheeseburger... More
