We have eaten here a few times over the last several months and the food is very good. The lobster bisque is a great starter, as is the generously sized smoked trout. You really can't go wrong on the menu. Two bits of information: the side salads are tiny (think coffee saucer size) and order your meat more well done... More

Went to Antlers on the recommendation of a local guy we met at the Hopshire Farm Brewery. Sat at the bar. The bartender was super friendly and interesting to chat with. Ordered the house salad with a highly recommended dressing which was not very good at all. As a dressing. On a cracker it would be a delicious spread. Had... More

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.
