Visiting Sault Ste. Marie on business and Karl's was recommended, but without much description. As we parked, I was expecting just a burger joint. Upon entering however, it was clearly obvious Karl's was much more! The menu was varied and all looked wonderful. Petula was our guide for our culinary experance. She made us feel welcomed and described the evening... More

Our server, Petulia was friendly, informative and her description of the lunch specials made our mouths water....we were very pleased with our sandwich choices...we had a gourmet experience...would recommend Karl's for lunch or dinner (we checked out the menu for dinner as well - future reference) and roof top dinning in the summer is a must.

Had a wonderful time today watching freighters go by from the window at Karl's...and an even better lunch served by a very nice waitress, Morgan. Very nice menu with interesting items..Morgan was very knowledgeable on their food and made recommendations. We even bought a bottle of their Wine that they bottle. Will be back!

Morgan waited on my table and she was excellent! She took her time and explained details and was smiling while she did it. The food was outstanding. I got the chicken strumboli. The atmosphere is quite and relaxing. Not too much noise even with the restaurant almost full. I know why they are rated as the best in the Soo!

We had to come to town for a business trip. We asked the locals were to have a good lunch. They said you have to go to Karl's. Very nice place. We had the mac and cheese and a chicken sandwich. Our server, Morgan, was top shelf too!

Ate at Karl's last Friday night. I had the lamb chops and rice. Nancy had the special, Vegetable Lasagna. Morgan was our waitress. Everything was wonderful. I can't say enough about this fine eatery or the great employees they have working there.

Best meal so far during a trip across Michigan. Prompt and friendly service from a waitress, Bry. Reasonably priced. Good portion sizes. Delicious fettuccine alfredo vegetable lasagna. Best chili I've ever eaten. Spotlessly clean restaurant. Wonderful bread pudding for dessert.

We went on a Friday for an early dinner. We arrived not long before shift change and our service reflected that :/ Our service did stink . My drinks were warm. Part of my order was wrong.... But the food was fantastic! Oh man! Their chef knows what they're doing! They had unusual sounding items and food combinations but don't... More
