We found this restaurant while driving by. The steak was comparable to the steaks in downtown Chicago. It was so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. Very friendly and the ambiance was great. The hamburger was ok. But the steaks were the star.

Most rude hostess we have ever experienced. They said they were booked up but only 3 tables had people seated. Only option was to eat on stool at bar. As we completed eating and were leaving only 3 other tables had been seated. With only 6 tables with people we mentioned to hostess on our way out, Wow, we ate and are leaving and this place is full of empty tables, see YOU COULD OF SEATED US!!! Her response "well, they are not here yet". That's was our point, they were NOT there and we were, all those tables empty !!! Have you ever heard of CUSTOMER SERVICE ???? And that was only the start. Table we had to eat at was so small I gave up my glass of water to make room. All the plates couldn't fit on the table and there were just 2 of us and splitting a meal !! The steak, would of been better on my grill at home. Not worth the money !! Baked potato, not fully cooked, steak very thin and not tasty. Complete disappointment. We were looking forward to a good steak dinner. We really don't understand anyone giving this place a good review unless they don't experience what great food really is. If you order the lobster tail, don't expect a big one, smallest we have ever received. This place was our only disappointment in South Haven. We will never return to Sophies and tell everyone we know to not waste their money. After spending an hour there and still so many empty tables, perhaps you need to fire a hostess or rethink your priorities. Any well ran restaurant knows not all reservations show up but more than half the restaurant?
Let's see if you are there a year from now based on a lot of these reviews.

Skip the appetizers. No presentation or flavor to match. Delmonico Steak was really good and prepared correctly. Service was great too. Just felt the price tag didn't match the plate.

Small place, with a large bar. I ordered a ribeye burger which was terrific.

The menu is limited. I think they should lower their prices, for the steaks. Cost is too high, for the area.

I will be back with the family, but tell every not to order the expensive steaks, if I am buying. Ha.

Went here for our Anniversary dinner. They are expensive for the quality of food. An 8oz New York Strip $19.99. The steak had good flavor but nothing extraordinary. The loaded bake potato consisted of a cheese slice melted on the potato with a half strip of Bacon.
We had the Mushroom crab caps for appetizer. They had good flavor but once again over priced for six quarter sized mushrooms caps $12
The food was good but over priced. Not a place I have to visit again
