Having the rating on Trip Advisor and also a recommendation from the tour boat captain, we tried Karl's. Needless to say it was all and more than we had expected. Our server, Clarissa Kelly, was a "10" plus in the professional manner of which she served us. She and other servers also stopped by our table to make sure everything... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Sault Sainte Marie MI. Karl's started out a a small operation serving Lunch It has expanded and it not matter whether it is lunch or dinner the food is always excellent and if there any room left in the tummy for more food, check out the desserts; you won't be disappointed.

Absolutely a wonderful dining experience. Our waitress was Clarissa Kelly, a young lady who will soon serve our country in the Marines. She was outstanding and the food was great. We had two entrées, wine, and dessert for under $50.00.

Great food and great service. The menu is great, too. We loved the gluten free selections. This is more upscale spot but it is by no means pretentious. Nice selection of salads and sandwiches and the desserts are to die for.

We sat on the rooftop deck and enjoyed a lovely afternoon. We tried two different wines (the Chilean malbec and a riesling) and both were delicious. The whitefish sandwich was tasty and the buffalo chicken stromboli was delicious! Our servers were very friendly and accommodating. Prices were fairly reasonable and the quality of the food was very good. The bread... More

My gosh it was really good for tourist food. Most restaurants in touristy areas slop food on plates, I guess cause they know you won't be back anytime soon. Karl wants return visitors. I had the salad special and a cup of soup. Fantastic, Karls is a great reason to go to the soo. Many happy returns.

There's not enough to say about Karl's! Great food, terrific service, wonderful wine selection --made by them, mostly? Totally? Heading back to UP in a few weeks and we will be dining there again -- every day!
