This restaurant's quirky and interesting facade does not match the inside elegance of the food.. Excellent food and they also make their own wine and beer. This was a surprise find for me and I highly recommend it. You may want to make reservations! If you have to wait, there is a small bar where you can do a wine... More

Stopped at the Soo locks and found it on trip advisor. It was a gourmet lunch. My wife had a club Stromboli and I had the prime rib tacos. It was perfect. Service was great.

Luckily we thought to stop in early in the day and made reservations, as this is an extremely popular place. And after having dinner there, we can attest to the reason. The food was excellent, as was the service. We had the maple planked walleye, and it was wonderful.

If you are looking for food prepared with a flare and taste this is the place to try. The choice of food served at Karl's rivals those of a fine restaurant in a large cities.

Just had lunch here and the food was yummy. I had the Italian Stromboli. The dipping sauce was odd though. It had balsamic vinaigrette in it. A traditional marinara would have been better. Our waitress Brianna was great ;)

Prompt, friendly service that was attentive without being intrusive. Very relaxing setting, good food that leaves you wanting more and reasonable prices. Our server was Brianna and she was a delight. I would recommend Karl's as a great place to dine.
