Lots to look at while you wait for your food

The atmosphere is very interesting. It is not just antlers but bear, cats, canoes and yes lots of antlers and heads. The food - I ordered the marinated cherry chicken off the healthy fare. The flavors combined for a very delicious meal. I am guessing it is healthy fare since it was just a single... read more

Lots of taxidermy on the walls. The menu seemed full of good stuff. I have only ever got the foil wrapped whitefish when I was there. It's a pretty decent local eatery and I would recommend you make the stop there. I tend to stay away from the larger chain restaurants when I am playing tourist and this was a... More

I would have given Antlers a 4-5 star rating 10 years ago. The atmosphere is unique and fun. Very load though. If you don't like a load restaurant or want an intimate dinner this is not the place for you. They have tons of taxidermy mounts on the wall. The staff is very good from past experience. The food can... More

We happened upon this restaurant on our way to SooLocks Boat Tour dock. We wanted to eat before our ride and this was convenient. Antlers make up the decor, along with a few other taxidermy specials. Service was a bit slow. We noticed five people waiting tables, which seemed like a lot for the size of dining room. After we... More

The decorations were awesome...deers, elk, moose, fish, large cats, and just about any other creature you can imagine. Light fixtures above us were antler chandeliers. Lots of animals! Kind of loud. Lots of people. Great value. I had a Beef and Cheddar Yooper Poutine-regional dish. Awesome tasting and lots of food for the money. The atmosphere here is very rustic.... More

Fun atmosphere with loads of animals (taxidermy) to look at. They also had the bells and whistles going when a freighter came through. There was also a great view of the locks. I ordered whitefish with a side of veggies and rice. The fish was a good size and had decent flavor but this was all undone because it was... More

Although the food was excellent, the "dead animal" ambiance was not to my wife's liking. I went there 50 years ago as a then college student. Not cheap, but worth it.

The staff was really good today at lunch. They blew the whistle and rang the bell for everyone. Food was very good, price a little high but ok. The animals on the wall are clean and in good shape. We will go again. Give it a try if you have never been there.
