SOUTH HAVEN -- "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" -- unless you're 104 years old and have a boatload of fans depending on you to stay afloat.

One of the sure signs of summer in South Haven is the Idler riverboat, and the restaurants it houses. Each year, hundreds of devoted shipmates, seasonal visitors and locals gather on deck at the Bayou Beach Club for cold drinks, food and some of the best river-, sunset-, and people-watching Michigan offers. Meanwhile, fellow mates dine elegantly below in the cabins of the Magnolia Grill.
