Delicious But. . . .

To the point; I've visited this restaurant immediately after it was remodeled and the food was appetizing though expensive for the times.

Wasn't sure upon arrival at the restaurant. Has a homegrown feel to it in general, and didn't love the atmosphere, but that being said, the food was excellent. I would go there again in a heartbeat.

Non descript restaurant on a side road off of Route 13. Service, food, experience is all good. You clearly get a good value and nice time. Selection is not overwhelming but there clearly is a variety. Leaving hungry only happens if you don't order anything. Well worth the trip.

Ate dinner at Antlers at the end of June. The restaurant is about ten minutes driving away from the Commons. There is not a lot of curb appeal when you drive past it. The restaurant inside does have some interesting embellishments but generally I would say the decor is average. However, the food makes up for what is lacking in... More

I'm a native Ithacan and this is my 'go to' restaurant. The Management is outstanding. The food is great and the parking is plentiful! In the winter they burn wood in the fireplace and it makes this place feel warm and welcoming! They have nightly specials and there are coupons available almost all the time.

This used to be our "go to" place for reliably very good food. I never was let down when bringing out of town guests, and was happy to say I have eaten here many many times over a 25 year period. Several times over the past year, the food in general was not up to par. Recently the two of... More

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,
