Food is better than average bar food. Antlers has been in business for a long time - for good reason - good food, fun, and fantastic atmosphere. If you have never been be sure to tell them its your first time there!

My daughter was in town with my grandson and we thought he would enjoy this restaurant (he is 4) and we hadn't been there in a very long time. The food was good but it was a bit expensive. But we thought the entertainment of the animals for my grandson made it worth it. I would go back as the... More

We came in with a large group and were amazed by the service - very quick and friendly. The food was great and the restaurant is fun to look around. The kids really enjoyed the dome hockey table.

We've eaten here a few times. My most memorable was for Valentine's Day. I ordered the twin lobster tails and my husband ordered the steak. Both were cook just right and had enough sides to make us both full at the end of our date. Some people don't like the taxidermy, but I find it fun to look at and... More

Stopped for lunch on a Saturday. Very few customers. They were having a buffet. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, Bow tie pasta with alfredo and red sauce. The food was OK, but not exceptional. Service was fast and friendly. Looks like it would be a fun place in season.

This is a gathering place that is popular with locals and tourists alike. The walls are filled with stuffed animals and the ceiling is filled with antlers. The menu is eclectic and large-You can have snacks and appetizers, soups, stews, gumbo, sandwiches, specialty burgers, fish, chicken, steaks, and more. The service is great. We'll be back!

My wife and I were untrigued with the description of this place so we stopped in out of curiosity. The atmosphere is really intereresting if you like stuffed animals and lots of antlers hanging from the ceiling. That really is interesting. But we never got as far as ordering food, just a beer. The place was pretty empty and, in... More

The mounted animals on display help make this place a fun restaurant to eat in. The atmosphere is classic "up north" and the food was very good! You have to check this place out when you're in the Soo!
