My wife and I have been here at least 50 times over several years, and it has never disappointed us. The food has always been very good to excellent and the service has always been excellent. The ambience is warm and homey with lots of antlers (naturally) on the walls. They even have that rarity of a doe with antlers... More

Food is always excellent, been going for 10 yrs. Wether steak or seafood all menu choices are delicious! My fav is crab cakes, perfectly seared outside and moist, well seasoned inside, along with delicious desserts too. Also great wine choices.

Took the boys out for a great meal after an Ithaca College Win. Smoked Trout was very good, followed by Steak Diane. Flavor was very good and steak was excellent. Price was reasonable.

This restaurant is old timey, and just old. Nice fireplace, but the food is just okay. Most of us went with the special, $19.95 for a three course meal. Salad was small but adequate, entrees were served with mashed potatoes and squash, neither of which were hot. It's inexpensive, but a bit out of touch for a restaurant with a... More

Growing up, ages ago, this was our go-to place for special occasions. These days Ithaca has a lot more to offer and it feels like the Antlers hasn't really moved with the times. The dinner salad was tiny, the Steak Diane was good but not great. My wife felt the same way about her Filet. The food was fine, in... More

Had a very nice meal (Baked Scrod, Santa Barbara Salad with Gorgonzola and candied pecans as well as the day's appetizer special of flatbread with mozzarella, diced tomatoes with a balsamic glaze) that was tasty and an ideal portion enhanced by fresh corn and a baked potato. The wait staff is professional although we did wait a bit before we... More

We stopped by on a weeknight and the place was packed and for good reason. The meals are pricier than you'd expect, and excellent--steaks and seafood. They have a good beer and wine selection as well. The wait staff was very attentive and charming.

Garlic bread as the free bread and it came out right out of the oven. How many restaurants do this anymore? It was great, I could have eaten a whole basket all by myself. The crabcakes was excellent, just the right consistency without being too dry or too mushy. I ordered the steak dianne and although it wasn't as large... More

The Antlers was right down the road from where I was staying and the reviews were mostly good. I like a salad with my meal which was not part of the order so, I ordered a house salad. As described in a earlier review, the salad was on a 3x3 round plate and was $4.95. A little heavy for that... More
