I took my daughter to the Rogues Harbour for dinner prior to freshman orientation, and was very happy with it. It's convenient to get to if you're staying somewhere on the north side of campus, just a few miles out of Ithaca via Triphammer Road or East Shore Drive. It has a very pleasant historic feel to it, nicely decorated and furnished. Service was good. The dining room is separated from the bar, but the live music was audible - enjoyable, not an irritation. There is also outside seating available in warm weather.
Of course the food is what's most important. Our selections were satisfactory, and the servings were a bit too large for either of us to finish. The cooking isn't especially gourmet, but interesting enough. Service was good. Prices are modest.
Overall I'd be happy to go back, especially since the atmosphere of a restaurant is very important to me (assuming the food is decent) and that's the strong point of this restaurant.
