As for being rated the best in St. Sault Marie, maybe that's not saying a lot, but this place is good and lives up to what you'd expect. An aside on the pastie thing, being from the South, I don't quite get them, they're typically a rather bland version of a pot pie. However, as we had a bunch of... More

I've read about Karl's Cuisine on Tripadvisor and have wanted to try it for some time. Finally, on August 18th we enjoyed this gem of a restaurant. We had a delicious meal!! From the start to the end, everything tasted wonderful. I had a delicious spinach salad and our friendly server, Charlie was well informed, and made it both enjoyable... More

My husband and I went to Karl's based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! We both had the evening special vegetarian pasta dish and it was delicious. We both had desserts that were also fantastic. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. For those with children, there is a special kid's... More

Karl's was recommended by a local gentlemen who said the food was great and that it was his favorite restaurant. After eating dinner there we agree. Carrie our server was fantastic, very friendly and attentive. The food and wine were excellent. The restaurant has a very unique exterior shaped like a ship with a very inviting dining area. Dinner at... More

We ate here during our visit to the Soo locks. We chose outdoor seating on the upper level, right across the street from the west end of the locks. Servers were friendly and helpful, promptly delivering our drinks. Service to take our food order and the initial drink refill was a little slower than optimum - possibly because we were... More

As the last part of our mini U.P. tour we stopped in Sault Ste. Marie to see the Locks and other attractions. Our 15 year old son and 14 year old daughter were ravenous as we had not had anything substantial to eat since breakfast at 8:30am and it was now close to 6pm. We found Karl's on TripAdvisor ---...

Karl's was recommended by the young woman working at our hotel as the best restaurant in town, after eating there we have no reason to disagree. The building itself is a bit odd -- sort of stylized bow of a ship -- but inside the service was excellent and the food delicious. I had read about Karl's famous pasty, and... More

Great food here. Fresh and unique items right across from the locks. A great selection on gluten free things too. The gluten free bread is awesome. Try the chocolate cherry torte. Best dessert ever!

Mother daughter long weekend trip was great but we cannot stop talking about the taste experience we had at Karl's. This place was recommended by 2 local businesses as the place to go eat and we were not disappointed. We ate more than we should so we could try out more dishes because this was just a vacation and didn't... More
