“Best lunch yet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Karl's is really good. I mean, really tasty food comes out of the kitchen. I can probably say I've either eaten there or had their catering like 20 times, and its always good. My only reason this isn't a 5 is the high price to food ratio. This time, I had already eaten half my lunch at work, and then got a call to meet someone. Thus, after I got lunch at Karl's, I was perfectly satiated. I would suggest this for eaters who don't have an obese American appetite, or for people looking for a real nice atmosphere for a date. A place where you want to spend a little more, and have small enough portions to get an appetizer and a dessert.

“A Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

This is a little place that strives (and succeeds) to provide excellent food and service. The chef prepares daily lunch and dinner specials - always a good choice if you're not sure what to have. The soups are phenomenal...try the cream of mushroom or pumpkin. Great selection of desserts. The prices are more than what we're used to in town but if you've travelled at all, you'll realize the bargain you are getting. Great little place, becoming a go-to for lunch or dinner.

“Excellent Service, Mouth-Watering Meals, & Delicious Desserts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

If u like homestyle cooking, cozy dining, & friendly service, then Karl's Cusine is the place to eat! Conveniently located right accross from the Soo-Locks, (just past all of the "Fudgie Shops") on Potage Avenue in Historic Downtown Sault Ste. Marie. The price is a little higher than some of the other resuraunts in the area, but the quality & flavor of thier entire menu make it well worth the extra change. The creativity that Karl puts into his combinations, presentations, & recipies make every dish a Tasty Treat!
So if you are in the Soo area, & want to tuck away somewhere from the hustle & bustle of downtown to grab a bite to eat, or in search of the "perfect place" to take your significant other for a dinner-date, then I highly recomed Karl's Cusine... I would not however recomend eating in for those of you with smaller children durring the winter-time when the upper level is closed (due to the close quartes of seating in the 1st floor dining room). No worries though, durring the tourist season there are plenty of picnic options in the Soo-Locks Park just down the street, so place an order To-Go & enjoy the scenery!

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

I hate to say anything negative, but I was highly recommended to visit this restaurant and was greatly disappointed. My parents had been there before and loved it, but when we all visited together it was not even close to what they had before. All of our meals were average, but the salads were terrible! I don't know if they just didn't mix the Balsamic Vinaigrette, but it was literally pure vinegar with no other flavor whatsoever. Needless to say, no one in our party of 6 finished the salads. Hopefully this was just a fluke experience because my parents loved it the first time they went. I can't say that I'll return again though...

“Wonderful Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

The menu is really exceptional and the food exceptionally prepared. The staff are incredibly friendly, professional, warm, receptive and accommodating. The atmosphere is incomparable, with an exclusive view of the shipping canal, and massive Great Lakes ships passing by regularly. We really enjoyed each and every dish, from appetizers through entree to dessert. Everything was exceptional, and the prices are disproportionately low given the quality. The restaurant made wine is very, very good too, which adds to the experience. We will be faithful patrons of this restaurant. Our 7 year old daughter enjoyed the soup so much we had to place an order to go so she could take it for lunch at school next day! It was tremendously good. Fresh ingredients and vibrant flavour! This is a couples, friends, family, business or solo restaurant! Completely inviting all around!
