Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having had a pleasant dining experience a year ago, we gladly returned to Clementine's this month. We like to sit in a booth in the bar because it has a warmer (great wood) feel to it than does the main dining room. Again, the menu offered many choices; I love the salmon and steamed veggies. My husband had a fish... More

We stopped in for a few drinks at the bar, menu seemed a bit over the top with the number of items but the food coming out looked and smelled good. Next time we may come in for a club sandwich, which looked awesome.

This is a really efficiently run restaurant. Service was perfect & food came out fast. Everything tasted great, we especially liked the onion rings.

Imagine that you are in charming beach community. There are several kinds of restaurants but nothing like Applebees. So you make a restaurant like you think an Applebees would be if is was locally owned. That is Clementine's. A nice menu of mostly American fare, friendly staff, with comfortable surroundings.

I liked the restaurant, but mostly for its potential, not based on our one-time experience. My wife's stake was ordered medium well and came out rare. My Canadian walleye was mealy and tasteless. I should have ordered the lake perch, their most popular fish, but I thought it was overpriced. Service was efficient, but not particularly friendly or welcoming. It... More

The decor is beautiful! We arrived and were seated right away. Three of us each had something different and all were happy with our food choices. The french onion soup and the bread roll were fabulous!

Good atmosphere. But over priced. Your paying for location and convience. Been there several times, but usually on invite by a friend.

We stopped by for lunch on a Thursday. Although it wasn't very busy, this place is huge! The decor is very charming - tin ceilings, rustic interior. The menu is very large so there is something for everyone. I had the Oh My Darling - crab & shrimp broiled on toasted French bread and topped with melted cheese. It was... More

It seems a decent enough place; okay food with good service. We both got the perch sandwich which tasted fine, but was 4 pieces of thumb-sized perch. Not anything to write home about. Slaw was good, sides decent & beer cold. It's worth a stop just to see the cool old building. It's location is pretty good, too.

Thank kerry m
