Don't expect anything fancy here. It's a diner and like other places in south haven, it's maybe a bit understaffed, but our server was efficient. I had a gyro and my husband had a burger. Our two kids had hotdogs and everything was good. Portions...More

Hometown cooking in a small restaurant. Food is good but choices are limited. Service is usually good, but once it was so bad we walked out.

If you want to see a good fight, in a testosterone charged environment, this is the place. Mostly on Friday and Saturday nights, this is where all of the local touch guys, meet up with the tourist touch guys, and a rumble is almost always...More

Great little cafe downtown, hot food, reasonable price and great service. There is a regulars table up front, they even have a rack where they store their cups for the next visit - which I imagine is daily.

Our lunch was pretty good......once we got it. There seemed to only be 1.5 waitresses (one waitress would drop everything to get people ice cream). Our waitress was friendly, the problem seemed to be with the kitchen.

Captain Nemo's is a must visit in South Haven. We had subs for late lunch and of course ice cream. The subs were big enough we could split one. Sundaes are the main reason to visit. I had a hokey pokey with hot chocolate and...More

In late June my wife, toddler-aged daughter and I found nemos more or less by accident. Great food, quick service, and a 2 minute wait for Sherman's ice cream. Of all the restaurants in south haven we tried this was by far our favorite for...More
