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

The menu is a bit pricey and small portions are served. If you get a 1/2 off coupon, then it's worth it. Whitefish was very fishy tasting.

The walls of this restaurant are covered with mounted game animals. Many species are represented some of which are fanciful. Food is good.

I was doing the tour of the Tower and Valley Camp and the Antler's was real handy for lunch. I got there when they were opening for lunch and they were very accommodating. Had a burger and fries, nice place to eat. Waitress was real nice, and we talked about how nice the whole area was. I do like it... More
