This is our third time dining out for dinner at this establishment. As before this restaurant is always at capacity, even during summer months so make reservations if you plan on going. The menu is relatively simple offering sandwiches or main-fare entrees. Great atmosphere, service, and food. Excellent for couples or for a family affair.

I enjoyed stuffed shrimp, my husband a beef dish, we enjoyed choice of potatoes or rice, vegetable was fresh corn, wish they offered a green vegetable option and a vegetarian dish that was not pasta but besides that the service, the atmosphere, the wine were great. A great deal with restaurant coupon. So happy to find this restaurant still open... More

Stopped in for dinner after many years with 3 other first time diners. I was pleased to find the same ambience, fab food, attentive service and all around Antlers experience. The Antlers did not disappoint for my dining companions, one of whom is dairy intolerant. They were quick to adjust recipes to suit his needs. We dined on ribs, baked... More

The Antlers is a great place for meat and sea food dishes . The reason I say it may not be comfortable for vegetarian/vegan diners is the large number of moose ,elk, and deer heads plus various stuffed birds, hanging on the walls in the dining room. The service is quite good but I would recommend that you try to... More

Very good seafood in a well established restaurant. Many locals eating there. Recommended by our hotel. Server was attentive and it was very crowded mid week. We had crab cakes and haddock. Would return.

After a Saturday out in the town we drove out to Antlers for dinner. The place was full but not overly crowded. We were quickly seated and told the specials of the day. They sounded wonderful, but we checked out the menu as well. There was a wide range of offerings, from seafood to steak. Three of us settled on... More

First time in this restaurant with a group of collegues. I tried the lobster and it was delicious. Good and fast service. Everyone was happy. Great dinner.

We wanted something special for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed. The lobster bisque is fantastic! My husband enjoyed the duck- he said it could have been cooked just a little longer but excellent. The scallops au gratin was also excellent- perfectly cooked scallops and a crabcake that tasted as though it had minimal filler. The atmosphere is quaint.... More

Our friends told us to order a full rack of BBQ ribs just to have some to take home. They were so right! I've never had better ribs!!

On a blustery windswept night I saw the welcoming lights and remembered the fire that the Antlers always hass in cold weather. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The barstaff made an excellent drink for me, to order. They have great prime rib, great salads, and a fine menu. Ample free parking. Go early. But they will always fit you... More
