family dining

This is your typical local family dining restaurant in downtown. The food here is great and the portion size fills up the plate! Everything from their hot and cold subs, salad and entree bar to the simple chicken strip meals are awesome! Great amount of seating for small or large groups.

This is a great restaurant. They make sure the food is nice and fresh. It is very home cooked style food. They give you good portions for a great price. I have eaten here for many years and will continue to go. They have great buffets and good old fashioned style service.

I am usually skeptical of buffets when traveling but gave this loaded down one a try. I wasn't disappointed! Friday nights only - fried chicken, fried fish, mashed potatoes and gravy. Great salad bar too. My kids loved the root beer served in large frozen glasses. Great atmosphere. Good service. Will go back!

Stopped for breakfast before a tour of the Soo Locks because we saw several cars parked out front. The place was busy with what appeared to be a lot of locals so we hoped for good things. The menu was simple but the quantity was great. Service is adequate. It reminded me of 'island time'. If you've been to the... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with excellent service. It's not a fancy place, more of a diner. Out group had the lunch buffet and a pasty. We like to support local businesses, so we stopped in when we saw the "tripadvisor" sticker in the window.

A friend who lives in Sault Ste. Marie recommended this restaurant. Three of us ordered different items and no one was disappointed. The soup and salad bar was delicious and the main courses were generous. Would eat here again.

Seems like this place is a local favorite, very busy yet we got seated right away. Went twice, once for dinner and a few days later for breakfast. Waiter for dinner was great, kept up on refills and kept checking up on us, waitress in the morning not so good, we saw her a total of 3 times, when she... More

They have an excellent salad and spaghetti and meatballs dinner. We do this take out and went to the park for the concert acrossed the street. Both were excellent.

I went for breakfast and it was moderately busy. It was seat yourself, but I was waited upon quite quickly. The service continued to be upbeat, The food was pretty typical diner food. The menu was basic American breakfast. It did what it needed to do, but not so well that it would turn into my go to place.
