Guests dining at Clementine's in downtown South Haven will be taken back to a time past. Situated in the old Citizen's Bank building, the tin ceiling and wood tables, bar and chairs resembles an Old West saloon. Start off your meal with one of their specially made beers or peach daiquiri along with their famous handmade onion rings served on a wooden peg. When you are ready to eat, try some halibut or perch from the in-house fish market along with potato pancakes or steamed broccoli medley. A new favorite at Clementine's is the strawberry glazed chicken breast with walnuts and feta cheese. If you are traveling with your little ones, they will feel grown up ordering for themselves from the kid's menu. Be sure to call or check their website for the brown bag and daily specials.
For a taste of Italy, make plans to dine at Maria's. Guests will take pleasure in the old school ambiance along with delicious authentic cuisine. Start with a bottle of chianti and a small plate of sweet pepper crab or antipasto salad. All the noodles and pasta at Maria's are made in the restaurant, so order the lasagna, stuffed shells or linguini with or without meatballs and Italian sausage. For a lighter meal, stop in for lunch and order one of the many sandwiches like open face meatballs with mozarella cheese, Tuscan chicken wrap or the Italian combo. Guests can enjoy a brick oven pizza with toppings like jalapenos, banana peppers or Roma tomatoes.
