I really like there. The best steak in South Haven. I also like the onion ring, you should ask in your visit!

I've been going here for years. And it must be good...because I will wait over an hour to get a table here! Great atmosphere, great employees, very clean, good food .... not great... but good enough. I am vegetarian and they are 100% un-vegetarian friendly but I just like the atmosphere so I continue to go. The salad is very... More

Thank you for continuing to come back us. We appreciate you! Hey, to get away from our salads that are predominantly iceberg lettuce, next time try the Red Barn Salad with Salmon(if you eat fish). It is a spinach salad with walnuts, apples and blue cheese. The Salmon can be prepared with cajun seasonings, which play off the apples and... More

This is a great place for just a sandwich or a full dinner. They have lots of options. Don't miss their stack of onion rings. The perch sandwich is good. The food and service are good, I would not say outstanding. The wait can be long at busy times.

Great place to grab a bite when it's not too busy. In season, you can wait an hour for a table, but you can usually grab a seat at the bar.

We live in South Haven so Clem's is a "local" for us. It has always had what I call "the best bar food around." That continues. Alsong with their excellent service and value. Last night's special was a 12oz cut of prime rib with baked potato, cole slaw and garlic toast. Ordered it medium rare. It arrived just as ordered... More

Cute local place to go with varied menu that will suit many people. Interesting old building with rich history. Nice staff also. I was surprised at the reasonable prices considering it is a resort town.
