Delicious lunch. Morgan was our excellent server. We had a gourmet corn/sausage chowder, turkey Reuben sandwich. Highly recommend eating here.

Was so glad we stopped to check out this place. It was definitely a place with character. Our food was amazing. But best of all was our customer service and our new friend Morgan. We definitely will be back and tell our friends as well. Can't to wait to bring our company over here to check it out.

The food was absolutely incredible! There wasn't a single dish on the menu that didn't sound amazing, and their dessert options are to die for! The pastie was one of the best I've ever had. We had to go back to the restaurant again for supper it was so good! The decor is beautiful and service was excellent. Our server... More

Stopped by for dinner again, and is clearly the best spot in town. Although menu may seem somewhat limited, there's certainly something that will impress. Although not vegan, tried the portabella mushroom with unique toasted mashed potatoes - delicious. Wife opted for blackened chicken Alfredo -again delicious with enough for lunch the next day. Great selection of desserts, good selection... More

While visiting the Soo for maybe the next to last time because our interests are leave this city, we selected this highly reviewed restaurant. It was great. The food was fresh and thought the beer selection was smaller than most the quality made up for it. I would recommend the Holiday Ale if you get a chance.

My boyfriend and I went to Karl's the other day for the first time in YEARS. The atmosphere was wonderful, but Chef Bryan actually came out and introduced himself to us. He offered to make lunch or dinner. He extensively explained the menu and gave us remmocendations based on what we told him we liked. The appetizer he recommended was... More

We were thrilled to have had such a wonderful experience dining in the Soo. Karl's is excellent. Upon arrival we were greeted promptly and seated right where we wanted to be. We were up front, right by the windows. We even got to watch a ship pass through the locks! Our server, Morgan, was very good. She was very attentive... More

We first stopped at this restaurant because it is close to the locks, across the street. It has an unobstructed view of ships approaching and leaving the MacArthur and Poe Locks. Then we tasted the food. It was outstanding both for lunch and dinner. They feature Michigan wines, unique and comparable to any in the world. Karl' is one of... More

We went for New Year's Eve. My friend had been to this restaurant before and said it was great. The wine - white not available? But the red that my friend selected was quite nice. The salad - in a word "YUM". The main course was not so. I ordered leg of lamb that was supposed to be butterflied and... More
