Black River Tavern
Black River Tavern specializes in fresh food made to order daily. Our menu offers unique dishes at very reasonable prices...some say too cheap for the high quality! This is not traditional tavern food as you will see from our Coastal Cakes to our Chef's own macaroni and cheese and the Black River Dog to Ma's Shrimp. A family atmosphere, Black River Tavern offers something for everyone. Conveniently located on the corner of Phoenix Street and Kalamazoo Street, the tavern offers some of the best views of the harbor and the South Haven lighthouse. Come in for dinner and stay for cocktails at the full-service bar, newly restored to its original tavern roots.
