This is a casual everyday a little better tan diner food. The veggie sandwich is good. Nothing gourmet here but good if you have young children with you.

On the way home from a color tour trip through Michigan, we stopped at this restaurant for lunch. The architecture is beautiful. Nice atmosphere. We had both had the soup special, white chicken chili and a salad. Both were excellent.

Sat at the bar, had one of the most unfriendly bartenders ever...she wasn't rude, just not friendly. At all. But the beer was cold, the one eyed jack cheese and the white bean chicken chili was great. The building and the bar are absolutely beautiful....More

The atmosphere is interesting with historical pictures on the walls. I loved the steak salad -- it was loaded with vegetables, blue cheese, and steak. I didn't have them, but the onion rings looked fantastic.

One of the most popular restaurants in the area is Clementines located downtown in a old refurbished bank building. The inside is beautifully decorated with carved wood, a tin ceiling, memorabilia, antiques and more. The food is fabulous. Dave ordered one of their signature appetizers,...More

Thank you for the review. I apologize for the lack of warmth and welcome you received from the hostess. I will look into the staffing of the door that evening and will endeavor to give constructive criticism. What you experienced, is not how we want...More

This is probably the best restaurant in South Haven. I did not try them all, but it was definitely the best that I tried. They have a wide variety of food available. The salmon was wonderful, and the french onion soup is top notch.

I had the Haystack Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken,broccoli,spinach, and mushrooms. Pasta was flavorless and the garlic bread was barely warm and not toasted. The butter wasn't even melted. We asked for silverware, got 2 sets (table of 6) and after 10 minutes had to grab...More

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.
