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

When we want a consistently good meal we return to the Antlers of Ithaca, NY. It rarely disappoints in any facet of the dining experience. It has a warm atmosphere along w/ a very friendly staff. The only snafu on our most recent trip was the waitress forgot to take of dessert order (not that we needed it). She gave... More

For our last night in the Ithaca area, we felt at a loss at dinner time. Our hotel desk proffered a list of choices, but as paid advertising goes, who really takes this seriously? I double-checked the offerings on TripAdvisor and found, to my chagrin, that most of the restaurants reviewed often were Chinese or Japanese, or chains of the... More

We ate here twice and enjoyed it both times. The food was great and they have specials each night of the week. We had good service and piano player one night. Its a popular place so reservations are recommended.

My wife and I ate here during our Cornell reunion weekend, and were very happy with the Antlers. The salmon burger was great and the duck was very good too if not a bit overcooked. Excellent lobster bisque. Quiet location a few miles from the chaos of collegetown and the Cornell campus. The staff was friendly and accommodating to us... More

Expected food to be better after reading great reviews, meat was overcooked and it was overall a disappointment. I would not go back again as there are many restaurants in Ithaca that are much better than the Antlers.

We came for my daughter graduation, and we decided to book for dinner at Antler. The atmosphere is cozy and country style. We have order salad $5.95 from the menu, and I could not believe the plate is so small ( 3x3 round ). The rib was boiled then spare the bbq sauce, don't expect for grill style. The duck... More
