Janet and I are kinda picky when it comes to going out to dinner, since it happens fairly rarely. The one place where we have NEVER been disappointed is the Antlers Restaurant on Rt 366, east of Cornell. In business since 1972 first as the Stables and then The Antlers - it is still run by the same two gentlemen,... More

We found this restaurant in the book in our hotel room. We looked it up online and were intrigued by the menu. There were many choices on the menu. We did not have reservations, but if you are going in the later evening hours, I would suggest making a reservation. We got there shortly after 5:00 and the place was... More

Not many choices, stuffed shrimp very small. The atmosphere was pleasant and the servers were good. My stuffed shrimp were good but as I stated shrimp very small. The only thing I would get there would be lobster bisque but I don't think I will go back.

We had a family dinner for a large group. We were promptly seated and the waitress was friendly and attentive. The decor is rustic like a hunting cabin. I had the prime rib special and lobster bisque. The bisque tasted maybe a little over cooked but it was still good. The prime rib came medium even though i ordered medium... More

The food is good - solid "American" fare. We eat there several times a month and have found the service to be consistently good. Make a reservation ... sometimes the wait is long.

The food isn't fantastic but the atmosphere and the service is warm, friendly and inviting. Very festive.

We stop into the Antlers a few times per year; excellent and predictable in terms of food, service, and a creative menu. Not fancy but good food consistently. Lots of great choice for steaks but don't overlook the crab cakes, salmon, and scrod. Favorites for us include the lobster bisque and flank steak. If you do get to Ithaca for... More

We are locals and have been coming here for many years. The Wedneday night prime rib special is excellent and most items on the menu are as well. Drinks, especially cocktails, are generous and delicious. Service is friendly and efficient. Prices are very fair. If you're a local, Antlers prints very generous weekly coupons in the local paper that keeps... More

We were here a year ago and loved it (see my review). But alas, what a change! We came on a Saturday evening. The ambiance is still lovely (hence, 2 stars), but the food quality has sharply declined. The flank steak was smothered in sauce beyond recognition. We ended up attempting to scrape off the sauce in order to find... More
