Tried Karl's based on recommendations from the host at our motel. The service was excellent - thanks Brianna! She was very knowledgeable about the menu and suggested the perfect wine to go with our dinner. My husband enjoyed the portabella florentine and I had the special, chicken roulade. Loved the fresh roasted veggies that came with. Would definately visit again.

How do you screw up spaghetti? It was not edible. Fortunately the wine is well priced. Salads were good. The location is great and diagonally across from the soo locks.

Tried this place based on the reviews on tripadvisor. Service and food were excellent. Price was on the higher side for lunch, but couldn't resist dessert at the end! Waitstaff very enthusiastic and helpful. Would definitely visit again if in the area!

I had turkey sandwich with avocado. Husband had Stromboli. My turkey was a bit dry and the avocado was a little hard. The macaroni salad that came with the sandwich was to die for and the veggie chips were very good too! My husband enjoyed his Stromboli and french fries. Our waitress, Clarissa, was attentive and very sweet. Ambience did... More

Excellent menu, changes daily, superb service and interestingly prepared food. I'm thinking a chef is involved here somewhere.

This may be some of the best food I've ever had. To the point tha my friend and I, who were on a road trip, stayed an extra night in town so we could eat there again.

We waited a long time to be seated as this is a small restaurant. The food was worth the wait. We tried the spinach and artichoke dip and it was superb with a subtle kick. Everyone enjoyed their entrées. It is obvious that the food is freshly prepared and not from GFS. It is probably the best restaurant in SSM.
