Sault Ste. Marie is reknowned for it's local Italian restaurants and culture. The "Soo" as it is affectionately known, is also home to a significant number of locally owned and operated restaurants, many of them pizza places.. Only three full-service chain restaurants operate in the Soo (Boston Pizza, Swiss Chalet and Caseys). 

Not far from the International Bridge, the Downtown showcases a number of local restaurants. Take a walk down Queen St to explore choices that range from upscale Italian to more affordable and homey Italian, locally sourced cafes to family owned Thai and a fancy steakhouse to an iconic local pizza place.

In the uptown area along Great Northern Road (aka the Golden Mile), you'll find your usual selection of fast-food choices, along with a range of local restaurants including several Italian and Pizza joints, a popular local steakhouse, sushi and only three chain full-service restaurants in town. But when in the Soo, it's always best to try something new!
