Old fashion building in our old town, the food is great, they have a full bar and are located across from the Sault Locks where you can see the freighters locking through and prices are reasonable.

This is a wonderful restaurant with a great menu of items which includes local fish. I had the whitefish and it was incredible. Service was excellent and the view of the locks, which is just across the street (hence the name of the restaurant), is...More

We stop here whenever we're at the Soo. The fresh fish is very good and we like the atmosphere. As the name indicates, there's a great view of the Locks. Trust me, get the whitefish.

Any time we visit our family in the Sault, we eat here. The food is wonderful, especially the Whitefish.

I visited in September and this was the first place that I ate. I sat upstairs by the windows and wow, what a view. I ordered a whitefish sandwich and it was great, fresh and tasty. Server was friendly and engaging.

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....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...More

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!
