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

Our party of fifteen spent two hours at this restaurant for a graduation dinner. We had a great selection of menu items, and between our group, probably sampled everything. I had the duckling which was perfect, along with their chunky seafood chowder laden with lobster, fish, clams and scallops. Final bill was shockingly reasonable for the quality of food and... More

Visiting the area the antler was on a list of restaurants from our hotel. Although we did not have a reservation it was early enough for us to be seated. The lobster bisque was ok tasted a little more like tomato soup but was good. I had the garden salad and it was good. My husband ordered the duck and... More

First time at this resturant. Went because of the mostly good reviews. I can't say we had a high level experince. We were not greeted promptly at the door. There is no hostess stand so it is not clear where you are suppose to stand and wait. Menu online is not the same as the menu in the resturant. Decor... More

We have eaten here many times over the last 30 years. This is one of our go-to spots when friends come to town. There's a cozy fireplace in the winter and lovely flowers in the spring and summer. The food is consistent and well-priced. We love the Friday Fish fry and the Wednesday Prime Rib special. Wonderful wait staff as... More

This is a fantastic place to eat right outside of Dryden where we stayed at the Candlelight Inn Bed and Breakfast. The owner, Doris, recommended that we try this restaurant since it was right down the road. We were surprised to find the place so full on a Wednesday night but after a short wait for a table it became... More

We had dinner there on Sunday Feb 16. I was surprised the restaurant was full and we had to get reservations. The interior has a casual décor and the waitress was very friendly. We started with the Lobster Bisque which was rich, very flavorful and had small chunks of lobster. We also had a appetizer portion of babyback ribs which... More
