Since 1990, Antler Package & Pizza has been known for their special secret family recipe for homemade pizza! In August 2015, when Michael Mansfield purchased Antler Package & Pizza he and his late fiance made several improvements to the restaurant, kitchen, bar & greatly expanded the menu. Now the menu offers many new items, allot of them homemade! We have not changed the original pizza recipe, and continue to cook our pizzas in the original old gas fired, brick lined ovens that give our pizzas that unique homemade taste!
The Antler Restaurant has been in business for well over 30 years and is an icon in the area!It is known far and wide for its made from scratch pizza!

Antler Pizza was established by Mark Ault and his family sometime in the late '80's. Mark, along with his relatives, came up with the sauce and dough recipe, so Antler Pizza began! Mark owned and operated the business until sometime in the late '90's. At that time it was purchased and operated by one of the former owners, Robert and his wife Jackie Klineline. Jackie and Robert divorced some years later and she started a restaurant called "Just Jackie's" and Robert's sister Pam and brother Rockie came in the business with Robert and a new partnership was born. They made allot of changes including enclosing the restaurant, which enabled it to be open year-round, built walk-in coolers for beer and food, building customer restrooms, and adding the outside decks. Sandwiches, homemade salsa, and Virginia’s (their mother) Homemade Spinach Artichoke Dip was also added to the menu along with some other items! They were successful running the Antler for over 17 years!
It was purchased on August 23, 2015 by Michael Mansfield, for his late fiance Robyn Carlisle and the tradition continued on!
