We came in about 6pm we stood in line for about 5 minutes when the hostess told us 20, fantastic! Because the place was packed. We ordered the chicken bacon ranch nachos, some jalapeño shrimp nachos, and of course the queso!! Everything was perfect, and our waitress Megan was amazing. The whole experience was 10 outta 10 would nacho again.

Food is always great, service is always great, and the ambiance is always fun. There is a reason that we always go here! Have the pita chips with the Queso - its a hit!

Great dinner tonight here-menu had something for everyone! I had the chicken fajitas and they were to die for, my father had a classic beef burrito and absolutely loved it (and he's not a big fan of this type of cuisine). Absolutely must eat here-staff was great, ambience is fun and classic, and food was delicious!

Stopped at this place randomly based on the look of the outside of the building, sometimes you can judge a book by it's cover. We thought this place looked great and it was!

Great service, great atmosphere, great food at great prices. I had an enchilada with rice and of course the chili con queso dip with homemade flour chips as well as the traditional corn chips. Great night. A must if you ever visit Sault Ste. Marie, MI.

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.
