You are greeted by a waiter but when seated you have many pairs of animal eyes watching you. A fun place, but stay away if you don’t like that. We ordered and our meal was prompt. Waitress was friendly. The food was OK. We ordered...More

Best pollock in town, very similar to cod, if whitefish is not your forte. Recommend going on your/someone else birthday, they do a bells/whistle show.

Had a great burger, but everything from ketchup to mustard to onions were extra. Horrible way to serve a perfectly good burger. When all was said and done the meal was quite expensive for what you got. Not interested in going back.

Server Jerry was phenomenal. He didn't forget anything didn't let our drinks run out and kept the table cleared. Food wasn't as good as it used to be.

We will let Jerry know. If there was a problem with the food always let your server know. We need to know that something is not up to snuff. Thank you, Marilyn Szabo

The Antlers has a long history of being a very unique restaurant. A few years ago it had the reputation for poor food and poor service. The current management has worked hard to create not only the historical atmosphere but a much improved menu. My...More

Historic site across from the Sault Locks. Fun atmosphere with numerous stuffed animals, antlers and memorabilia. Northern cuisine, and great Friday night fish fry and fun activities in the evenings during the week. Banquet room available, can take groups up to 200. Casual fun family dining.
