Antlers is an old, former, men-only gambling and bookie joint. Back in the day it had pool tables, ticker tape and a toteboard with all the major racetracks listed. The bar still remains but it has become a popular downtown lunch spot in Lafayette. The constant slap of dominoes players has been replaced by the sounds of silverware.. The fare... More

Go on Wednesday and get the smothered pork chop and rice and gravy. One of the best meals at any restaurant in Lafayette - and that's saying a lot.

If you are in the downtown town area of Lafayette, you must check out this Restuarant. Best southern style meals like we cook at home. There is something on the menu to please everyone. The price is low to medium range.the food is like Sunday lunch at Grandmas

This restaurant has been around for many years. The food is nothing fancy just good consistent quality home style cajun food. Location is downtown and there is easy parking nearby. So if you are visiting downtown Lafayette .....give it a try.

You have to wash it down with lots of water or whatever you are drinking. The potatoes could be substituted by another vegetable and the green beans are good. If they would just lay... More

The food at Antlers is very delicious. Just like mother's cooking. Cannot select a special dish because everything is worth sampling.
