We were a party of three and was told it would be about a 15 min wait, no problem it was dinner time. Then a family of 5 came in and they took them right away. We left.

We loved this place! The drinks were delicious (and reasonably priced) and the food was fresh tasting and flavorful. I like the idea that this place has mexican food and typical pub food. The atmosphere and decoration are fun as well!

We had small children and even though the restaurant is tight inside they are extremely accommodating to families. We were in for a late lunch and they were still very busy. Inexpensive kids menu and extensive menu selection for adults. We were in a couple...More

Many of our menu items can certainly be made gluten free, all you have to do is work with your server to meet your needs!

The Palace Saloon is truly a Soo establishment, opening for the first time over a century ago. The restaurant has seen some changes over the decades, switching hands and even looks, but what has always remained the same is the Palace Saloon’s amazing food, drinks and its commitment to the local community. Although the Palace Saloon has seen several changes and renovations throughout the last century, some things have never changed. The beautiful mahogany Brunswick bar is still in use, and the caring friendly staff, the delicious Mexican and American food, and the family-oriented business is the same as it has always been.
