Great food, great atmosphere! Building is really neat! Expect a wait. Try the onion rings!!!!! A little pricey, even at lunch, but worth it!

I often avoid Clementines because it is so popular, there are often dozens of people waiting outside just to be seated. That's in the summertime. A former vegetarian, I also didn't like a menu that is heavy in red meat and deep fried foods. This visit, though, I found the food really good. The atmosphere at Clem's is always fun,... More

Came here for my first time last weekend. Waited forever for water waited forever for food. Waiter would take our plates and silverware when we needed them. He was extremely nervous, forgetful and rude to some of us at the table. Waited 40mins for a burger, soup, salad and a small burrito. He had 4 tables it wasn't busy for... More

Outstanding Michigan perch! Probably some of the best fish in Michigan. We make it our annual tradition to stop before our charter fishing trip with Captain Baird on IT IL DO charters in South Haven. Two great traditions!

We chose this place to meet friends as a halfway to each other destination a few years back, and we always find ourselves deciding to do it again. We have always enjoyed good meals, great lake perch (which can be added on to any entree order), and a delightfully festive environment that always makes us feel completely unhurried and unharried

My family and I were in South Haven for a family reunion and everyone we talked to recommended Clementines and we were really glad we went! There were 11 of us ranging from 4-83 years of age and everyone was happy. In particular the green lipped mussels and the tower of onion rings were highlights but the best part was... More

Our first visit was very good. We had the Lake Perch and they were cooked to perfection, very tasty. Our next visit was accompanied by the Broiled & Cajun Walleye, also very well done. We always look forward to visiting this establishment because it has never been a disappointment.

Had dinner with coworker tonight. I ordered the "tugboat Annie" which is a steak topped with mushrooms, crab, and shrimp. Sounded yummy. The steak was cooked to medium rare as ordered, but there was absolutely no flavor. No spices, no seasonings. The shrimp that topped my steak were about 1/2 inch long, the tiny shrimp you get out of a... More

Large menu and great lunch! I had the Claim Jumper Sandwich and the Broccoli and Cheese Soup. Clementine's signature drinks were also delicious. They were able to accommodate our large group of 9, and the service was excellent!
