Clementines is a South Haven classic. The building has incredible charm, the food is always outstanding and the service is fabulous!

Great food! Everything that I've ever tried has been tasty. They give you a choice of sides including yummy soup instead of fries. Better than average service. Nice decor with pleasant surrounding. I will definitely go back in fact look forward to it.

The best restaurant in South Haven, but ALWAYS a wait. Better to go on a weekday. Burgers, delicious potatoes, nice staff, a bit loud, fish option, lunch less busy than dinner.

We had some friends recommend Clementines. Immediately, one notices the antique decor and history, a great feature. I was looking forward to the food knowing the ambiance was appealing. I was pretty disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the food wasn't bad, it just wasn't different....More

This restaurant has great food and excellent service! It is extremely popular and I think that shows how good it is! The wait can be very long so make sure you get your name on the list before the time you want to eat.

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.
