I don't know where to start, everything about this place is good. The food was excellent, the portions are big,and the service is great. The grilled chicken breast is mouth watering delicious and so tender it's amazing. Nothing but good things to say about this...place. 🙂More

This place still serves good old country dishes like liver and onions, fried pork chops, chicken fried steaks, etc... Come hungry as they will feed you good. This place is popular among the locals so avoid busy lunch hours or be prepared to wait 30-45...minutes.More

We have loved Antlers for at least 30 years. The food is always consistent and it’s a great and favorite place to bring family and friends from out of town. Our last visit was VERY concerning and likely a violation of the health department codes....*A lady was allowed to eat in a booth with a dog on the booth, feeding her dog (off the table)! *Then, another dog walked in and sat on the floor behind us while we are eating Dogs should be served on the outside porch, not in the restaurant. People have allergy issues to dogs, dog hair and dander. These animals were NOT identified as service animals. Sharing this only because we want Antlers to be successful and this is bad business. I would appreciate a response on Antlers pet policy and a sign being put up at the restaurant.More

I have eaten here dozens of times over many years. The food and service were usually very good. Let me talk about this visit. It feels to me like the management has slipped and is not getting the job done. First it was the middle...of the afternoon. We went in and empty tables were visible. They have separated the tables so there are no empty or skipped tables left open due to Covid. There were 3 parties ahead of us which had not been seated. There was nobody at reception to get a name on the list. We waited about 15 minutes to just get on the list. Where is the staff????? Is management paying attention?? Who is taking care of the customers? The others ahead of us had been waiting longer. A party that came in behind us gave up and left. After getting on the list it was 5-10 minutes before we were seated. All this time there were empty tables available. We were seated and had plenty of time to choose food before the waitress appeared. So we ordered drinks and food at the same time. A beer was ordered dressed with a glass. This was repeated. The beer arrived and the bottle had salt. No Glass. ( Is anybody Listening?) The salads were OK except for the hair in mine. It was not my hair as being mostly bald my hair is 1/2 inch long. This was a 3-4 inch long hair dark curly hair. Also not the color of my guest. The blue cheese dressing was especially strong that day. Too strong for my guest who had to cut it with ranch in order to eat it. The food arrived fairly quickly. The plates had a lot of food. The hamburger steak with brown gravy and onions was very good. Also the Lima beans and green beans were good. The pork chops which can be grilled, pan fried, or deep fried, were very good. They were pan fried and had some breading on them. I am hesitant to go back and would probably go down the street to the Branch Grill.More

Went with friends to eat here after Texas Corvette Association car show in Boerne, Texas. I ordered the chicken fried steak with cream corn and asparagus. There was plenty left over after I ate, so took half of it home! Go early though because we...arrived after 5 pm and it was over an hour wait for just three people to eat! We took first available and were sweated outside. It was cold as the sun started going down and the wind picked up so come prepared with a jacket in case you have to sit outside to eat. Other than that, it was great !More

I have been to Antlers several times. The food is well prepared and served hot. Service is always good, attentive and friendly. Only thing that kept me from giving it a five was the kitchen is a little heavy on the salt. Last time it...was the gravy for my chicken fried steak and remember the same from my previous trip. It can get crowded with a lengthy wait so go early or go patient. Well worth the trip though.More

We visit Antlers at least once a month and have never been disappointed. Food and service is always excellent and lunch menu is a great value. We always take out of town guests to Antlers do give them a taste of great Texas style food.

We eat here regularly and have never been disappointed. The food is very good and you get plenty of it. Great menu with well done Texas standards like CF steak.

Some of the employees-waitress - are not wearing face mask properly. Their nose is not covered. Either the masks are not the right size, or the employees need training on how to properly use the face mask. During a pandemia, this is a public health...concern for those of us that are over 65 and want to visit the restaurant. During my visit 21 January 2021, at least two employees at the patio were not covering their nose which is a focus of transmission .More

No banquet room that I am aware of. The dining room is not huge but there is some outdoor seating. I don't see how a party of 20 or more could be served.

The beef enchiladas at Antler are typical German/Mexican dish. Not your usual TexMex. Very beefy and amazing. I love them.
