Had hot & delicious soup on a very cold and windy day! Wait staff was so friendly, she gave my work partner and I Antlers decals.

My son and I were in town for a visit to Lake Superior State University and needed a solid dinner option and found The Antlers on trusty ole' Tripadvisor (note: It was ranked 7th best in town, but 3 weren't open during winter and two seemed more bar than restaurant). I had heard of The Antlers by way of Jim... More

Friendly staff and quick service in the off season. First go at poutine, and it was tasty. Even more so with the venison meatloaf and mushrooms added. Stuffed creatures really do stare down on you from everywhere, so read about how they were acquired when you get there. I just wanted to see a moose that looked the the one... More

We stop here after our tournament every year for a hearty meal. It doesn't disappoint. The staff are friendly, and the service is quick. My only complaint is that the steaks, while tasty, tend to be thin and on the gristly/fatty side for the price. The place is chock full of taxidermied critters of all sorts to keep the kids... More

After a district basketball game between the Sault and my hometown of Grayling, we were hungry for something different besides McD's. So off to the Antlers we headed, and were not disappointed. Nice quiet evening, lots of nature to see hanging on the walls or up in the rafters, and the food was great. I had the Po-boy fish sandwich... More

I went here with a group of friends and found it to be a very fun atmosphere. The food was average. The taxidermy and antlers in the facility were really fun to look at. Some of us got poutine just to try it and it was average. The cedar planked Whitefish looked great and my friend said it was excellent.

I have eaten here many times while either visiting the Sault or just traveling through it. The atmosphere is tied to Michigan's outdoors and the food and service are both very good. It's a must stop if you're in the area at lunch or dinner time. While setting enjoying a beverage and your meal you can almost imagine the hunting... More

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!

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.
