The Antlers is a great place for meat and sea food dishes . The reason I say it may not be comfortable for vegetarian/vegan diners is the large number of moose ,elk, and deer heads plus various stuffed birds, hanging on the walls in the dining room. The service is quite good but I would recommend that you try to... More

Very good seafood in a well established restaurant. Many locals eating there. Recommended by our hotel. Server was attentive and it was very crowded mid week. We had crab cakes and haddock. Would return.

After a Saturday out in the town we drove out to Antlers for dinner. The place was full but not overly crowded. We were quickly seated and told the specials of the day. They sounded wonderful, but we checked out the menu as well. There was a wide range of offerings, from seafood to steak. Three of us settled on... More

We wanted something special for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed. The lobster bisque is fantastic! My husband enjoyed the duck- he said it could have been cooked just a little longer but excellent. The scallops au gratin was also excellent- perfectly cooked scallops and a crabcake that tasted as though it had minimal filler. The atmosphere is quaint.... More

Our friends told us to order a full rack of BBQ ribs just to have some to take home. They were so right! I've never had better ribs!!

On a blustery windswept night I saw the welcoming lights and remembered the fire that the Antlers always hass in cold weather. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The barstaff made an excellent drink for me, to order. They have great prime rib, great salads, and a fine menu. Ample free parking. Go early. But they will always fit you... More

The atmosphere here is good for a cold Ithaca evening. There is a large fireplace near the center of the dining area. The menu here varies from burgers to ribs, fish, chicken, and steaks. The portions are fair and the food is tasty.

I have been to Ithaca numerous times, and I have never failed to dine at Antlers. Each time I have been there, the food has been delicious with a generous portion size. Since I have severe food allergies, I am not able to dine at many other restaurants. This has not been a problem for Antlers. They have been able... More

Went with a large group for business dinner and was happily satisfied. Drinks were great and food was delicious. Good portions and they had several special dinner's to choose from. Good simple food at reasonable prices. Desert's were also delicious. Creme brulee with bourbon was a hit! Service was great! Have been here before and always satisfied.
