Every time I'm in South Haven, I'm sure to eat here! Great food in a wonderful location. The onion rings are the best!

I have dined here a number of times. Always good food and service. Soups, appetizers, burgers, sandwiches -- can't go wrong! They are a local restaurant -- anyone who has been to South Haven knows about Clemtine's!

This place attracts visitors even in the winter, and in the summer be prepared for long lines. Why? Because you always get great service, atmosphere and good food. Forget the calories and start with onion rings!

For locals, the time to dine at Clemintines is in the winter when there isn't much of a wait. They don't take reservations and wait times can be 2 hours in the summer tourist season. Food is consistently dependable. Good selection, good staff, fair prices. Must have the onion rings!

Last visit we had there our car battery died. Went inside to see if they would know a wrecker service to call for a jump. Car was wedged between... More

The food is ok - pretty much expect what you get at a place that serves the cole slaw in a plastic cup. The rest is consistent with that approach. Had the Gunslinger - good steak and good value. Steak wasn't hot - the seasoned butter served on it wouldn't even melt. Slaw was too cold, in that plastic cup... More
