We had a chance to meet the owner Dennis who took the time to bring our 96 year old mother a beautiful arrangement of flowers. After our day trip we returned for supper. Again a great meal.

Nicely located right across the street from Soo Locks (even though we couldn't see them from our spot in the restaurant). The whitefish and walleye were fantastic no matter how you ask for it to be prepared. Service was fast and friendly.

We had gone to see the Soo Locks and wanted to have lunch before we left the area. Thought we would try this place and had a really good salad and a terrific whitefish Ruben that i would definitely recommend.

This restaurant is right across from the locks and is a great choice for lunch. Portions are very generous, it's kid-friendly, and the fresh whitefish is really outstanding.

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!
