The atmosphere was unique the food was pretty good nothing to write home about & a bit pricey. We will look elsewhere on our next trip through.

The atmosphere is unique and the reason to go there. It is PACKED with stuffed critters; great for adults and children and, yes, they sound bells, whistles and sirens to celebrate someone's special occasion. We cannot eat meat because of cholesterol. Since we only eat veggie or fish, I can not comment on the meat dishes. At the Antlers, we... More

Aside from my food being dropped and then waiting until almost everyone in my group was done eating to get my meal, it's not a place to eat healthy. They have pretty much nothing for a vegetarian- they could at least have a veggie burger on the menu as an option. The whitefish plank I ordered was very good- I... More

This is not the Antler we all remember. It's not that fun bar with the bells and whistles and whatnot. This is now a boring family restaurant. The worst part is that I have found their service lacking. I ordered a steak medium. Got it well done without the onions and mushrooms. They let my steak sit in front of... More

It is a very happening place so we had to wait for a little bit but once we got in the food was great, the service was a little slow but the place was packed so understandable. There was an interesting decor so that made for some fun photo ops. I recommend going to antlers while in the area.

There is a reason it is called "The Antlers"! There are antlers of all sizes EVERYWHERE, along with animals of all types. Lions, polar bears, moose heads, birds, badgers............... It was a fun place to eat! Our food was very good too. My husband ranked this his #1 meal of our trip. He had the cedar plank whitefish dinner. Other... More

This used to be THE PLACE to go in the Soo. Now, not so much. It's a typical tourist trap with lots of stuff on the walls and very ordinary, mediocre food. Try to avoid. I don't ever plan on going back. If you like a typical tourist trap, this is your kind of place. If you like good food,... More

If you are in the Soo you have to eat here. Just for the ambience of the place and all the antlers, stuffed animals and the food. Burgers are large and very good, the perch was so so, mashed potatoes were exceptional! good kids menu. The waiter was also tending bar but he didn't lose track of us and was... More

The interior of the restaurant was an unexpected surprise. You think you are going to see a few mounted racks on the wall, maybe some taxidermy...it was that and so much more. It was very easy to kill time with the kids while we waited for our food, there was so much to look at. The food was good, maybe... More

We eat here every trip up to the UP. It's got a unique decor and the food is usually quite good. I recommended the beer cheese and bacon burger. We also liked the fish. We also got one their salads and we were a bit disappointed. Overall the food is pretty good. Prices are a tad bit high though. Service... More
