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!

This restaurant is across the street from the locks and is good for a drink or a meal. We enjoyed it.

The Whitefish dinner was excellent ! We had a family gathering and we all had whitefish, everyone was pleased. The staff was very friendly and the owner stopped by to talk with us as well. Highly recommended it if you are visiting the Soo.

This restaurant is right across the street from the Soo Locks Visitor Center. It has two levels, so you can eat on the second floor for a better view of the locks. I ate on the first floor and the view of the freighters going through the locks was good enough for me. i was here for breakfast and I had the Southern Omelette covered in Sausage gravy. It was delicious. The service was excellent.

We stopped for dinner after a long drive from Duluth Minnesota to Sault Ste. Marie on our way to Bar Harbor, Maine. The whitefish was absolutely the best we had ever eaten. It was cooked perfectly. Our waiter, Kyle was fantastic. The owner, Dennis, came over for a visit before we left and that was pleasant as well. We would highly recommend this place for dinner if you’re in Sault Ste. Marie. Nice view of the locks as well.
