Description: Specializing in Mexican and American cuisine, the Palace Saloon is the best restaurant in the Soo, and anyone who stops in for a meal or a drink is sure to realize that. Serving customers for over a century, the Palace Saloon has a history and reputation that can't be beat - and neither can its menu. An amazing atmosphere, including a mahogany bar from 1903, with mood lighting and a comfortable ambiance make us the perfect choice for a night out with the family, a special date night with someone special, or just the best place to come for a delicious meal and an amazing drink. Famous for our chili con queso and giant margarita menu, we offer a great variety of Mexican and American fares, including some of the original Mexican recipes from when the restaurant opened in 1903. We also offer great charbroiled steaks and burgers, fajitas, burritos, quesadillas and salads, sure to satisfy anyone's appetite. The Palace Saloon also features daily margarita specials, like our current caramel apple margarita, and that's just one of a huge variety of specialty margaritas we're famous for. Along with that huge margarita special, we have a full bar with just about any drink you could want. The soft lit restaurant gives you the feel of a night club, but the family friendly atmosphere makes the Palace Saloon the great place for everyone - from current regulars to brand new customers. Warm a cozy, we make sure your experience is perfect whether you're on a special date night or just having a night out on the town. Daily specials at the Palace Saloon include our Margarita Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Wing Wednesdays, Burger & Fries Thursdays, and steak specials. Located conveniently near the Soo Locks, and famous for our chili con queso and margaritas, The Palace Saloon is the Soo's best gathering place for delicious food and fun, where old friends gather and new friends meet.

We ordered a few margaritas and the queso dip and the fajitas. We were impressed with all of it though the fajitas weren't anything spectacular. A cool little spot in downtown sault ste marie.

We hadn’t been to the Palace Saloon since the newer ownership. We arrived and the restaurant was not that busy. We had to wait for another couple that was joining us so we had a little time. We were greeted as we came in but for some reason the attendant wanted us to hustle to find a table/booth or what... More

Excellent chili con queso! Good selection of standard Mexican meals, nothing exotic, but delicious nonetheless.

Okay, it was my husband who ordered the chicken chimichanga, but he willingly gave me a bite of his. OH MY! I have tried lots of chimichangas, but this truly was the BEST one I've ever had. There is something special they put in with the chicken.......it's bright red, so likely a tomato-based sauce. That special red sauce/seasoning puts the... More

It was a busy day and the place was crowded, but the nachos we ordered were just so so and the waitress was not the friendliest waitress I have ever had. Hopefully this is because she was having a bad day, but never checked back to fill water glasses, see how the food was or ask if we wanted anything... More

I had not been in this establishment for about 14 years. Was hoping to replicate the meal I always enjoyed there . . . Pedro Salad and Chicken Wings. Unfortunately, the dressing for the salad had changed significantly and the wings were so so. In any event, it is worth a visit as this is a long standing watering hole... More

Dear Man52, We are sorry that your experience with us was not as memorable as it was 14 years ago. We continue to keep our menu fresh and exciting which may be a reason you noticed a change in the dressing. We hope you still enjoyed your time with us and hope too see you again soon! Palace Management. More

Tacos had lots of meat, but average. They also were on the pricy side. You guys can't count and keep telling me to say more.

The Palace is a historical building in Sault Ste. Marie. At present it is a bar / Mexican restaurant. We went for lunch and could not fault the place, except that there was a bit more of a chili powder flavor in some of the food than we expected. We ran into this in another restaurant in the area and... More
