Nice variety of selections on the menu. We tried the Perch sandwich thinking we were getting local fresh fish! Not so sure, a local said all fish was flown in from Russua😱 It was delicious !

This is an old bank from back in the days. A lot of the old items are still here to see while you dine on wonderful food. There always seems to be a waiting line of about 20 minutes but it is worth the wait....More

What a great place to eat and drink at! My husband grew up in Michigan and bragged about Clementine's and their tasty "foot of onion rings". I agree. Best I have ever eaten in my life! Drinks and other food were good as well. The...More

Has a beautuful bar area. The food is not too bad. It is known for perch. It is not a place for a romantic dinner. It is busy and noisy. If you go, be prepared to wait because everyone goes there. You should try it...More

Cooks there don't know how to season food! Bland, overcooked, dry or if you get the fried fish it is soaked in oil. Used to be a great place to go, has definitely gone downhill

I think they could. Depends on how early you go and what day. You could always call and ask if they could actually seat 20 people together. That would be my suggestion.

I'm sorry but we don't take reservations. We open at 11:00 on Sundays and are not usually terribly busy before noon. So if it is possible to be here around that time, it shouldn't be a problem getting a table. I also can... More
