With friends we have gone for a birthday lobster dinner for several years. The meal is a treat in a rustic and cozy atmosphere. Their desserts are special, too!

The Antlers has been around for some time. Not part of Cornell's Collegetown or the Commons dining district, the restaurant affords an opportunity to escape the college students. The menu is diverse American and includes well prepared inexpensive dishes such as burgers and a salmon club to lobster, fish, filet mignon, and more. The decor is more bar than restaurant,... More

We have eaten here at least 2 times each year, for the past four years, when we stop to visit our grandson (who JUST graduated from Cornell University). Each time we have found the staff to be courteous, accommodating, friendly, and helpful with suggestions of what we might like to choose on the menu. The atmosphere has a warm and... More

This restaurant is consistently good...their barbecued ribs are excellent and the lobster special can't be beat. Great atmosphere and even a roaring fire in the winter. Friendly and helpful wait staff,

Food is wonderful and pleasing portions, atmosphere is friendly and comfortable, lovely garden and statue outside, live piano player some nights, good specials with good prices, good service, good for the elderly, working men who need a good meal, and everyone else (except maybe little kids); make a reservation if coming early!

I love this place. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and I have always found the food delicious, with a nice selection that can offer something for a range of tastes and needs. The owners are nice, the acoustics are good for conversation, and there is easy parking. A lovely hearth adds to the sense of warmth in the winter,... More

They do it all right at Antlers. Much of the menu is a bit upscale, but they do a great burger as well. The daily specials are great values. Call ahead for reservations or you might have a bit of a wait, which us not always a bad thing as the bar is cozy and welcoming,

My wife and I recently went with another couple to Antlers. To sum it up, excellent ! Great atmosphere, pleasant staff, and reasonable prices. I had the roast duck and it was fantastic. No one in the party was displeased. Great time will return.

My family has been eating at Antlers for many years. We've always counted on consistently good food. However, the last couple of visits were disappointing. During our most recent dinner our food was cold and didn't taste all that good. Our waitress was very accommodating. She went out of her way to assure our satisfaction but the food wasn't well-prepared... More

We eat here about once a month (been coming since the 80's) and the Antler's never fails. Lots of good menu choices and weekly specials. Our favorite nights? Prime Rib Wednesday and Lobster Thursday. Prices can't be beat! We love the fire in the winter and the flowers in the summer. The wait staff is top notch, never writing orders... More
