“AVOID AVOID AVOID”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Absolutely terrible service when we visited end of October 2012. Our waitress was incompetent, a second waitress was rude, our food was cold, the orders were incorrect, we had extremely poor service when asking for accessories, and were never even offered coffee or our bill. OUr waitress completely dissapeared and never came back. We had to sort out our own bills at the register. There is no onsite management to complain to and I tried for a solid week and could never reach either the hotel general manager or the restaurant manager. I have been there numerous times over past thirty + years and I/we will never go back.

“Terrible service with filthy conditions.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

After we waded through cigarette butts on the ground both inside and outside the door, it took forever to get served. The waitress brought a soda straw in a mixed drink. We ordered all-you-can-eat fish, and it took almost a half hour to come. When we each ordered more, after almost 15 minutes our waitress brought one small piece of fish in a BOWL for us to split between us, we said to never mind and we just left. The experience would have been laughable if we weren't celebrating our 35th anniversary. What a joke!

“Not up to past standards”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

On the last two occasions that we ate at Freighters, they seemed to be out of very common food items, such as potatoes!

“Don't eat at this restaurant.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We had dinner and breakfast at this restaurant because we were staying in the hotel. The dining room is beautiful and has a great view, but that is the only nice thing I can say about it. At dinner our waitperson was forgetful and slow. The food was only average and a lot of it was cold! Our free breakfast buffet hardly had any food and the food was old and cold. We did not eat here the next day.

“Good place for a date”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Freighters is up scale restaurant in Sault Sainte Marie. The view is really nice of the water. It is over priced for what you get thats why I am giving it a 4/5 and the service is sometimes slow.
