The Lockview Restaurant is located in Sault Ste Marie, MI. Although next door to the Lockview Motel, is not owned by the same people. It did not take much investigation to figure out where the neon from the sign went since the neon in the window is the same script as what's on the sign. The Lockview serves fresh Lake Superior whitefish (served 5 different ways) and lake perch. Friday nights have several whitefish specials. 12-08
