Stopped for lunch on a business trip. The restaurant is easy to find and has a warm ambience. Monica, my server, (she ask me to mention her name) was fast, friendly, and attentive. I had the open-face Philly cheesesteak and the cauliflower & cheddar soup, both of which were delicious. I'll be back the next time I'm up north.

Five of us had dinner at Karl's in October. I had the U.P. chicken pasty. It was delicious. Brianna, our server, was very attentive and helpful. As we were leaving, a freighter was making its way onto the locks. We could see it through the windows in the restaurant. We liked Karl's so much that two of us had lunch... More

Enjoyed the small, quaint restaurant as well as the soup and salad on a brisk day after viewing the locks and gift shops in the area.

Passed by this place many times without a thought. When deciding where to eat, we thought we'd try it based on their online menu. Wow, it was an amazing choice. Their burger isn't really a burger. Remove the bun, replace it with a bed of wild or dirty rice and you would have beyond fine dining. The fries were dense... More

My mom and dad live in the Soo for half of each year, and I try to drive up a couple of times each summer/fall from Chicago to visit. I always enjoy taking them to Karl's and my October visit was no exception. Our server, Morgan, was helpful and attentive. She even had a serving of bread pudding put aside... More

Everything about this place was right. The food was fresh, inventive and prepared with care. My husband had a burger that was the special of the day. I had the lobster bisque and crabcake sandwich (soup and sandwich option). All delicious. Our server was friendly and helpful. The location is very pretty, with lovely views. We only regretted that our... More

Stopped here on the recommendation of another traveler who had been in town all week on business and had eaten at this restaurant every night because the food was so good. My husband and I agreed. We had a nice table by the window and watched the small ships going through the locks while our server, Morgan, tempted us with... More
