Whenever you visit Sault Ste. Marie, THE ANTLERS is a required stop! The food isn't gourmet (but GOOD) and the decor is, well... "unique". If you come once, you will return again (and again)... I've been returning or 40+ years! The Chili and gumbo are...More

Very exciting place to go to- kids would love it- stuffed animals and other stuff all over. Tons of atmosphere. Food is good too- a bit pricy.

Try the local microbrew and the Michigan Gumbo. But save room for dessert. And don't forget to ask for the bells and whistles.

We had been told by many people that we should go to this restaurant in the Soo. We happened to be there last night and went there. The small dining room, all with tables that seated 8, was filled with all sorts of stuffed animals....More

Thank you for your review, I will give the information to my son who is owner/manager. Menu changes and specialities are the buffalo dishes. We make almost all of the sauces, so this will give Chirs a better idea of how much to spice something...More

Such neat ambiance! Literally full of taxidermy animals. The food was good and the staff was nice. We try to eat local and avoid chains when we travel and this was a fun choice. If you don't like taxidermy, you wouldn't be comfortable here though....More

Really liked the buffalo burger. Dead stuff on the walls was a little much for this city girl but would definitely recommend the food.

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.
