This drive in had a few places to sit to eat inside. The burgers were large and greasy. Tasted good. I do say I was a bit disappointed thought. The flavor was not what I was expecting. However it still was a good burger and friendly staff. The other thing is it. Was hard to find. The server told me... More

We were visiting the "Soo" and decided to stop at the drive in. The boy taking the orders and running the food was very friendly and helpful. The food was not bad. Mostly fried and deep fried items on the menu. We sat in the car and had our lunch watching ships sail nearby. Will return!

I love the West Pier! Such an amazing little gem, and I'm so happy my friends told me about this place! They have big portions for a great price. The food is always great! Servers are always quick and the food comes out quickly even though it's always packed! Everyone needs to eat here at least once!!

West Pier will hold a special place in all our hearts. Everybody from Sault Ste Marie +either+ waits with breath held in anticipation of four words: West. Pier. Is. Open. God bless you West Pier. Not advertised. So damn delicious. And the grease ate the bag. Double bacon cheeseburger, fries, cauliflower, and a shake. Two days of meals. God bless... More

Great place for burgers and fried anything. Nice view of ships passing by. You have to be going there to get there

Great place to go in the summer. Burgers are fantastic, experience of the drive in is nice. Watch the freighters go by as you eat.

Staff is very friendly. Food is good old Americana, grilled cheese, subs, BLT, burgers, etc. Food was prepared quickly and portions were good. Best BLT I... More

I have been going to West Pier since I was a little girl and have yet to find a burger place that can surpass it. The burgers are delicious as well as many of the other things on their menu. This is a must stop place if you are ever in Sault Ste. Marie

I couldn't fairly state that the only reason to come here is because of the State of Michigan's #2 ranked burger (M-Live.com). The hot sub is fantastic, as are the malts & shakes (there IS a difference), fries, onion rings, deep-fried pickles & mushrooms, etc., but the bacon-cheeseburger is just TOO good. One day, when I'm wired up in the... More
