“MMMMMMM Desserts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

My friend and I have been working our way through the dessert menu. SOOOOOO DELICIOUS! All in house made desserts that truly make your mouth water. I'm in love with the sponge toffee!

The appetizer menu won't leave you disappointed either. I haven't tried the entrees yet, but I'm sure they're great too.

The staff is always friendly. The views are great and they're open late. I just wonder why there are rarely any other people dining....they're missing out!

Dear ladyphoenixxx. Thanks for making time to join us for dessert/apps and sharing your comments. Our dessert menu makes us very proud. (My personal favourite is the Panna Cotta). All of our desserts are proudly made in house from scratch. It just tastes better this way! We hope you can find the time to join us again and our appreciation again for sharing your comments.

“Great view and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Settled in the Delta hotel this is a class operation. We had lunch for 4 and each of us was pleased with our dish. We had a wrap that was tasty, a spinach salad with chicken that was very good. Fish and chip made with white fish in a tempura style. The server was very good and made the lunch very nice. Stop in and enjoy the view of freighters ambling through the locks. Great place!

Greetings P M. Thanks for joining us for lunch. We are privileged to offer such a great lunch menu. Our culinary team brings to the table a lot of attractive and tasty menu items. So glad you enjoyed them. We almost hate to say it, but we loved the view so much we named the restaurant after it. Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant and we hope you can find the time (if possible) to join us again for Dinner or perhaps Sunday Brunch. Cheers.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We just spent the weekend in Sault Ste. Marie and had breakfast here and dinner. The breakfast was delicious and neither of us were disappointed, but hey can u really screw up poached eggs ( which I had) or a classic sausage,eggs hash browns and toast ( hubby had) well maybe, but not this time......the test was to come........DINNER. Dinner was amazing!!!!!!!! Did I say amazing.....awesome. Hubby had the duck which he has never tried, he said it was good but he probably would not order it again as duck was not for him. I had the cedar maple glazed salmon.....OMG amazing.......awesome, out of this world. Hubby tried it and said he should have stuck with something he knew. I want to reiterate that he has never had duck so he really had no idea what duck was to taste like. But my heavens the salmon was so good. DO NOT EVER take this off the menu.....this has to be your signature dish. The service at both breakfast and dinner was awesome....... Two thumbs up ladies you both were awesome. I wish I could remember the gals name at breakfast, but I can't .....sorry, and I think the young ladies name at dinner was Lindsey, the trouble is she did have someone with her that she was training as well. I just want to get their names right cause both morning gal and dinner staff were awesome. The young girl at dinner had blonde hair and she did a lot of travelling......thank you ,thank you for your conversation, your service was outstanding, I sure hope management know what gems they have working here.
People give this place a try to me this is 5 star dining for half the price. Kudos to the chefs here as EVERYTIME I come here I am never EVER disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. Our breakfast philosophy is to put quality first. We use real eggs, Tropicana Orange Juice & Starbucks Coffee. We really work hard to make it a great value. However we will certainly bring your concerns to the Chef's attention. The Banana Foster Pancakes is usually a great choice. I'm disappointed you weren't WOW'd by the dish. Once again I will direct your comments to our Chef + Service Staff. We hope you can find the time (if possible) in your travels to try us again. Thanks again for reviewing our restaurant. Cheers
