I had the whitefish cooked on a wood plank. It was excellent, decent portions, nice sides. My husband had the pasty, and really enjoyed it. The gravy that came with it was delicious. It had to be made from scratch. They only offer wine to drink, a little bit of a let down for us, but we still enjoyed our... More

I love good fresh food, something outside the ordinary, but fresh and flavorful. I am an avid cook and organic gardener and at home, we raise much of what we eat or buy fresh, fresh local. Karl's was like home away from home. Every mouthful was wonderful.. The blueberry spinach salad was a delight, as were numerous other daily specials... More

Drove to the Soo for the day and stumbled upon this little gem! I had a delicious panini with turkey, dried cherries, mozzarella, basil, and ranch. It was served with a cup of Reuben soup and veggie chips. Service was great and we had a good view of the Locks.

We came here on the recommendation of locals. It did not disappoint. We all shared a caprese salad and then had the whitefish. Great view of the locks. Nice wines, they make their own and are not stingy with the tastes. Great, friendly staff. Fair pricing!

My husband and I were honeymooning in Mackinaw City and were given the recommendation of having dinner at Karl's Cuisine. We couldn't have been happier with our entire experience while dining here! Our exceptional server, Lily, made us feel like an extended part of the family from the time we arrived! She was extremely friendly and attentive to our every... More

Avoid the wine; it is truly awful. pasta dish was mediocre. Dessert was good. Salad was good. Too quiet atmosphere. Great service. But, not much competition, so better than the average here.

Karl's is a cute little restaurant in a building shaped like a boat. They feature fresh, locally sourced food whenever possible with simple but tasty preparation. The service was good from the very beginning when they sat us next to a window that looked out at the locks. As we were checking out the menu a large ship came through... More

We came into town and ate lunch after reading recommendations with TripAdvisor. Great experience - good lunch. Then after rejecting another resuaurant for dinner, we returned to Karl's for dinner. Another favorable experience. Good food, good wine, good staff. Our server this evening was Kerri. Thank you Kerri. I have a feeling that this place just draws good people into... More

Enjoyed the wine, and the view. Did not expect a real dining experience in this very old historical town. We tried some specials and loved visiting with the staff. The menu offered lots of choices and the salad was so fresh. This is a nice restful stop on the traveling trail.

Husband and I stopped here while visiting the area. Main reason was it's TripAdvisor rating. Little to "stuffy" for our taste to be honest. Tuna melt was the special... half was warm half was cold... My husband's burger was good but he was still hungry after the fact. We will try somewhere else next time... On a lighter note our... More
