Idler Riverboat

Home of the Bayou Beach Club & Creole Tavern! Our Restaurant is known for "Family Dining at its Finest" and has won numerous awards over the years. We pride ourselves on our homemade food and outstanding service. All of our soups, chili's, specials and many of our desserts are made fresh daily. When the Sun is shining and you're having a great time, you know you're at the Idler! We're a proud part of South Haven, MI, serving up food, fun, drinks, friends, and more! If you're looking for a bite to eat before or after the beach, or even a place to spend your whole night, we're ready for you with a drink and a smile. We offer both indoor and outdoor seating, so enjoy the sun from a nice shady table, or bask in it. If you are here in South Haven for the first time, The Idler is a MUST SEE. Best view of the sunset while sipping a hurricane drink in the whole city!
