We enjoyed our late lunch on the second floor with a window table. White fish was flaky with a nice batter coating. Slaw was creamy and flavorful. Portions were so large that desert was not an option for us!

This place was recommended by 2 different locals. I was looking to have some fish. It was the best broiled whitefish I had on my entire vacation. The seasoning was excellent.

Fresh walleye for $19, perfectly done, with a huge salad and baked potato. Great fish dip too. There was a 20-minute wait for upstairs (with view of locks); we were too hungry to wait but after dinner walked across street to watch a long, narrow...More

We had dinner on the second floor and it was great to see the freighters go thru the locks. For everyday food, it was good. The fish was not overly seasoned but tasty. We understood that the restaurant had changed owners and we decided to...More

Stored for lunch after a visit to the Soo locks across the street. Ordered the fried whitefish basket and a Pastie. Both were delicious. (Despite the generous serving size we had no leftovers!) The restaurant is nothing fancy but is very clean and well maintained...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!
