A Sault Ste Marie Icon

Fun place to visit for lunch in the "Soo". Burgers were delicious and little one was happy with the chicken tenders off the kids menu. Service was attentive and our waitress was friendly. This stop added to a fun visit to the area -- it had all the "bells and whistles".

We arrived about 5 pm for dinner. Not alot of people but it soon filled up. I had the reuben sandwich which was big and had lots of meat. The fries could have been better. They seemed like they had been sitting for a while. The waitress was quick and friendly and got anything we asked. The atmoshere was outdoorsy... More

If you are in Sault St Marie you just have to stop by the Antlers. We didn't get to eat there (time constraints) but stopped by for some drinks. I sampled some local beers, and my wife had (according to her) the best Bloody Mary she ever had. Some may find that critters on the walls and ceiling a bit... More

The white fish dip is great and I always get the walnut encrusted whitefish. Add one of the craft beers and I am dining fine.

A taxidermist paradise. Lots to keep kids occupied talking about the stuffed wild life. Dinners were very good, but the pouline in a bowl of french fries with a hint of some sort of flavor. This dish does not resemble what you think you ordered. The rest of the group had lots of praise for their orders. Ample servings, quick... More

We have eaten here several times over the years and have not been disappointed. Our recent meal was very good; the service excellent and the surroundings fun. Prices aren't bad either. It's unique and if you don't mind seeing a lot of stuffed animals hanging around, go visit and enjoy.

This is a family friendly place, we enjoyed playing I spy while waiting for our food. The waiter was great and interactive, our food was delicious and we enjoyed our time at the restaurant as our family are avid hunters.

We were in your restaurant on Thursday August 13th. Though the restaurant is interesting, well decorated and has a comfy atmosphere, the meal we had was awful. We had the lake perch. The fish pieces were very small. The batter was very big. The batter tasted like the oil it was fried in. The fish was dripping in oil and... More
