We stopped here on a Sunday morning for breakfast about 10:00. Had to wait about 10 mins for a table, although it was not busy. It seemed there may have only been 1 waitress, which seemed odd for a Sunday morning in this tourist area. Great location--loved the atmosphere. Right across the street from the Locks and lots of parking... More

Discovered this spot when we got caught in a rain storm. Sat on the second floor and got a cool view of the water and neon signs. Their drinks were surprising good and reasonably priced.

The breakfast was amazing: eggs, hashbrowns, and WHITEFISH with a choice of ways to prepare. And very good coffee. Right across from the Soo Locks and the visitor center, we had a great view of a freighter entering the locks on the way to Lake Superior. After breakfast, we got to see the finale as the freighter slowly pulled away.

My husband and I ate here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. It is right across from the Soo locks. I had the corned beef hash and eggs, and my husband had the whitefish and eggs. The whitefish was a little overdone. The portions were large. Service was okay.

We stopped here for lunch after touring the soo locks located directly across the street. We were a party of four and had decided on sandwiches that we could split. The BLT and Reuben sandwiches were very good and substantial. They didn't do an up charge for splitting either! The waiter was very personable and our food was delivered to... More

I have no idea what they were made from - probably lots of butter and buttermilk, but they tasted great and were full of ripe blueberries. Along with the freeflowing coffee, this is a great place for breakfast.

This fine restaurant is located right next door to the Askwith Lock View Hotel, and right across the street from the Soo Locks. We watched a freighter pass through the locks during our meal. Quite a varied menu, and very delicious. The battered whitefish & chips were what I was craving, and hit the spot. Their blue margarita with curacao... More

If the Soo Locks draw you to the area, this restaurant may be of interest. Grandkids saw only a few small craft transit the Locks but got a good unobstructed view of a larger vessel passing through during a lunch break. Meal was pretty good and the menu offered a few interesting items.

Description
Across from the entrance to the Soo Locks the Lock View isn't just for tourists. Local people regard our whitefish as the best with our saying "the fish you eat today slept last night in whitefish bay". We prepare our whitefish and walleye many different ways: pan-fried, broiled, lemon-pepper, Cajun, deep-fried, Cajun deep fried, Cajun broiled, and lemon pepper broiled. We are more than family friendly and with two floors of seating; we can easily accommodate large groups! Open May- October!
