Me and my Mrs visited The Antlers twice during our 2-day stay in the Soo. Broad selection of menu items. Loved the Perch dinner and Bell's Oberon on tap! Waitresses were friendly and attentive to our needs. Fascinating collection of deer and elk antlers are mounted throughout the main dining area.

I have not been there in three years. It is still the same. A nice place to have a meal and if you are lucky you can see a freighter passing by. I had a mushroom burger which was very good. My friend had white fish for the first time and he liked it. It is a nice place to... More

Heard great things about this place, even one of the locals at the bar recommended the cedar plank whitefish. Terribly disappointed, but my wife's steak was really good. Decor was cool, so it wasn't a total bust.

We recently had lunch here before going on the Soo Locks Tour. Even before we ordered, I had asked the waitress if she thought we could be served within an hour as we had a boat to catch. She assured me that it was no problem. The decor is a bit distracting but fun to look at. All of us... More

Saw this place on a PBS travel show so we went in to try it out. Ordered the beef Poutine and thought it was great. Bells and whistles were fun and service was fast.

We were hungry after completing the Soo Locks Boat Tour and stopped here for dinner. Great meal, wonderful service. Our waitress was full of suggestions for places we should visit on our trip. And, if you have kids with you, not only do they get fun antlers to wear and do they enjoy the variety of taxidermy on the walls,... More

Antlers is an experience as much as a dining spot. The food is just fine so long as you are not expecting haute cuisine. There are lots of choices, so everyone should find something. The parking lot is huge - and often filled because this place is popular with locals. The waitstaff are worth the wait. Sarcastic, funny, and clearly... More
