After a district basketball game between the Sault and my hometown of Grayling, we were hungry for something different besides McD's. So off to the Antlers we headed, and were not disappointed. Nice quiet evening, lots of nature to see hanging on the walls or up in the rafters, and the food was great. I had the Po-boy fish sandwich... More

I went here with a group of friends and found it to be a very fun atmosphere. The food was average. The taxidermy and antlers in the facility were really fun to look at. Some of us got poutine just to try it and it was average. The cedar planked Whitefish looked great and my friend said it was excellent.

I have eaten here many times while either visiting the Sault or just traveling through it. The atmosphere is tied to Michigan's outdoors and the food and service are both very good. It's a must stop if you're in the area at lunch or dinner time. While setting enjoying a beverage and your meal you can almost imagine the hunting... More

We travel frequently to the Soo for many reasons, but it's like our second home and it's like a "reset" for us. My husband worked at the Antlers when he was in college and always had good things to say about it. We even went to it on our honeymoon. So after an amazing LSSU Laker basketball win we were...

Very unique menu, and very good. Been here a few times. My only complaint is the seating. It's all banquet hall type seating. Needs some smaller tables, and an all around update to the decor. Love all the animals and the bells & whistles, for sure, though!

We came in after our locks boat trip. It wasn't to busy yet 4 pm. This was the spot my grandfather brought us growing up living here. Sad to say over my 60 yrs other than seeing the displays it doesn't have much appeal . The fish was greasy the service slow. We all had stomach problems after. So I... More

As long as you don't mind stuffed animals of all shapes and sizes you'll enjoy it here. It has it's own feel and charm with lots to look at. The food was good but the service not so good. That was fine as it just gave us more time to take it all in. A must visit if you want... More

My wife and I went back to The Antlers Restaurant last Friday. We both had their "seafood special" of the day. The fish was walleye. It was lightly battered and fried. It was just wonderful! Cooked just perfectly and came with a large bowl of slaw and hand-cut french fries. I enjoyed a glass of iced tea with mine. I... More
