Love the food and price! I go here every time I'm in South Haven. The service is usually very good but I've had a couple wait staff that weren't so great. There's almost always a wait but well worth it.

Surprised by the size of the restaurant. But, it does not feel big. I liked the service and the food was great. Loved the stack of onion rings.
