We've been going here for the past year. It is a craving that can only be satisfied by San Souci perch dinner! Finally convinced a group of friends to go with us and they have already planned another trip back in just 3 weeks! Fresh taste, light batter and can not beat the portion sizes! HUGE!

all you can eat lake perch is absolutely delicious, or a great perch sandwich for the smaller appetite and a window booth or a seat in the outside gazebo gives you a great view of the passing ships.

The perch dinner at San Souci is like no other around. The quality and the quantity are TREMENDOUS!! And on Fridays, for a dollar more than the normal price of $15.99, you can get all you can eat....I can't imagine too many people ask for seconds! The fish is PILED onto your plate along with fries and a side of... More

Good family dinner by boat or watching the antique boat parade, always have good food and good service... Dockage to arrive by boat can be limited, be prepared, go early

I'm impressed the perch dinner was excellent. Large enough to split between two people and that's exactly what we did. Dinner came with fries. Waterfront. Outdoor seating.

Was there this past weekend, the food was so so but the place is really bad. Everything was dirty and the men's restroom smelled of urine. It was the last time we will go there.

We are always boating by this place so we decided to stop in. We had a late afternoon dinner. The perch dinner was very very good with fries and salad. Nothing fancy but very edible. The view was nice as we sat outside under the covered patio. Several freighters came by as we were out there.....the "locals" or I think... More

We were staying on our boat at Algonac Harbor Club. Our friends, from Ford Yacht Club wanted to go to San Souci. We declined their offer due to the horrible service and food in the past. We went to the School House Restaurant instead which was excellent. After lunch, we decided to go to San Souci and hook up with... More

You may not be impressed with the bathrooms or the overall look of the place but .... I think you will be impressed with the view if you sit outside. You will not get much closer to a freighter and the water. The home made soups are incredible. I have had clam chowder in lots of places and I would... More

It has been some time since we visited Harsens Island and the San Souci Bar, but I wanted to take my father out for some Fish and Chips on Father's Day! The restaurant definitely needs a good cleaning. I don't think anyone has taken a broom to the place or wiped down the tables in months. Even the bathroom was... More
