The food was great and the desserts were fabulous. The bread pudding was much better than we had the day before at the pricey Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island!! Service was great. The waiter was very personable. Ask for Tim!

My friend and I have been traveling around the US and have had few really good meals. Last night at Karl's Cuisine was the exception, however. Our server, Megan, was terrific, helpful and knowledgeable giving excellent advice on what to have. I had the steak and it was excellent. Thank you.

Karl's Cuisine makes their own wine which goes great with many of their meals. Our waiter Tim, did an excellent job at presenting each wine as they came to our table and allowed us to try them before we chose one. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you come to town. Ask for Tim, he will help you out.

We got a table with a view of the locks and we ordered whitefish of course! Wonderful dinner and the wine they make themselves is very good. I would go back if I am in the area! Great service too!

I would have to say Karl's Cuisine deserves to be top-rated. My family and I had lunch here right after the Soo Locks Boat Tour and it was great. My wife and I had the soup & sandwich and it was very good. The kid’s meals were just OK; typical chicken tenders and box of juice from Costco...nothing special. I... More

Highly recommend this family owned and operated place that has a story behind it. Upscale without being pretentious offering tasty assortment of entrees and desserts. Family also runs a winery and offers their selections.

Based on TA reviews, we made a reservation for our Friday night arrival at the Soo. What a great meal! Just sorry we didn't have room for one of their great looking desserts. Before we left, made a reservation for the the next night too. Don't think we've ever done that before. Had another great meal. No room for dessert,... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here at Karl's, the reviewers were right on point. We were lucky enough to have Charlie as our waiter, what a treat. He spent the time to tell us about the wines they make, they beers they will soon brew on site, and all about the family-run place. We both enjoyed our dinners, and even... More

A recent visit to this restaurant for the first time, brought us back with our family a second time. The menu selection for lunch and dinner is innovative and delicious. The attention to detail and service rivals more expensive 5 star restaurants. The fact that they also have an extensive wine list that is affordable makes Karl's Cuisine a must... More
