I frequent the Palace Saloon at least once a week if not multiple times for their Lunch specials (Can't beat $5 burgers or wing baskets!). The staff is always friendly and food always great.

Specializing in Mexican and American cuisine, the Palace Saloon is the best restaurant in the Soo, and anyone who stops in for a meal or a drink is sure to realize that. Serving customers for over a century, the Palace Saloon has a history and reputation that can't be beat - and neither can its menu. An amazing atmosphere, including a mahogany bar from 1903, with mood lighting and a comfortable ambiance make us the perfect choice for a night out with the family, a special date night with someone special, or just the best place to come for a delicious meal and an amazing drink. Famous for our chili con queso and giant margarita menu, we offer a great variety of Mexican and American fares, including some of the original Mexican recipes from when the restaurant opened in 1903. We also offer great charbroiled steaks and burgers, fajitas, burritos, quesadillas and salads, sure to satisfy anyone's appetite. The Palace Saloon also features daily margarita specials, like our current caramel apple margarita, and that's just one of a huge variety of specialty margaritas we're famous for. Along with that huge margarita special, we have a full bar with just about any drink you could want. The soft lit restaurant gives you the feel of a night club, but the family friendly atmosphere makes the Palace Saloon the great place for everyone - from current regulars to brand new customers. Warm a cozy, we make sure your experience is perfect whether you're on a special date night or just having a night out on the town. Daily specials at the Palace Saloon include our Margarita Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Wing Wednesdays, Burger & Fries Thursdays, and steak specials. Located conveniently near the Soo Locks, and famous for our chili con queso and margaritas, The Palace Saloon is the Soo's best gathering place for delicious food and fun, where old friends gather and new friends meet.
