I really want to like the Captain's Grill. There's a fire place...and a pool table...and a decent view. So every year we end up there, hoping something has changed; sadly, if it changes it is only for the worse. The service is acceptable at best. Unattentive and lacking are typically more accurate descriptions. On Saturday we decided to have a snack while having a couple beers, and opted for the Ultimate Grande Nachos. For $13.99 I expected real food, or at the least, highly disguised canned/premade items. We received a 9" plate with liquid gold, gas station cheese over chips and topped with the most questionable "beef" I have ever seen. (Seriously, Taco Bells nachos are better and a fraction of the price.) There was also something akin to salty snot that we were told was guacomole. I wasn't disappointed, I was angry...mostly at myself for being duped by a menu that offers "hand stretched tortillas". For a restaurant masquerading itself as "cuisine", I expected so much more than fast food on a ceramic plate.
What a view! Captain's Pub & Grill is set up to afford diners a spectacular view of the St. Mary's River just below the Soo Locks. The view alone makes it worth a visit. Service... not so much. Hubby and I walked into the restaurant at 11:55am, right past a sign that said breakfast was served until 1:00pm. We were seated by our server and handed only a lunch menu. Upon inquiry, we were told we were "too late" because it was past noon (it wasn't). As we began to question this, the server heaved a big sigh and said she "guessed" we could have breakfast menus because, "you know... um... it's not too busy." So gracious. And she maintained her barely cordial attitude throughout the meal. Food... rivals the view. At least the menu item we both ordered does. Both hubby and I indulged in the sausage and biscuit supreme. And supreme it was! The two biscuits were so fluffy they were trying to float off the plate. Luckily, they were held down by sweet and salty pan-fried ham, which was covered by divinely creamy sausage gravy, interspersed with sizeable chunks of peppery sausage. On top, two eggs crowned the huge plate of nom-nom-nom-nom. My eggs were over easy, hubby chose scrambled and topped with cheese. Nutshell: if you're in Sault Ste. Marie, this is a place you must visit for the view and the breakfast.
A couple friends and I opted to go to the Captains Pub to have a couple drinks and a little food. The Pub was what we expected, warm friendly atmosphere, great food, the views were wonderful and the server made sure we never had an empty glass we didn't want.
