Staying in a hotel 1/4 mile away and Antlers was highly recommended. We had their special, seafood pasta and tiramisu was better than anything we had in Italy. Service was great.

We made a reservation for dinner before going as we heard it was busy during the weekends. We were promptly seated when we arrived at a spacious dining area. Lots of ambiance with many antlers and drawings of other wildlife. They also have many flowers around making it appear almost as if you are outside. I loved the glass of... More

Wow. We managed to squeak in an 8 PM reservation. This place is very popular. Country woods decor, antlers, fish and birds. Bright and cheery. Eight of us were celebrating a birthday for a brother's 70th. We had appetizers, some had steak, lamb, shrimp, everything was fabulous. The drinks were A+. Garlic bread, yum. Our waitress, Rachel, was fun and... More

Went to this restaurant with friends and their father who have been here many times and it is their go-to place. For us, it was our first time and if we are ever in Ithaca again, it will not be our last. We arrived before the crowd and were seated promptly (we had a reservation, which is recommended, as by...

This is our third time dining out for dinner at this establishment. As before this restaurant is always at capacity, even during summer months so make reservations if you plan on going. The menu is relatively simple offering sandwiches or main-fare entrees. Great atmosphere, service, and food. Excellent for couples or for a family affair.

Went there with my wife and another couple on a Saturday night. The waitress had no idea about ANY of the dishes. In addition, she was very rude and never checked on us. We had to ask another girl to call our waitress and she still didn't come! We then had to ask the hostess to bring our drinks. The... More

I enjoyed stuffed shrimp, my husband a beef dish, we enjoyed choice of potatoes or rice, vegetable was fresh corn, wish they offered a green vegetable option and a vegetarian dish that was not pasta but besides that the service, the atmosphere, the wine were great. A great deal with restaurant coupon. So happy to find this restaurant still open... More

Stopped in for dinner after many years with 3 other first time diners. I was pleased to find the same ambience, fab food, attentive service and all around Antlers experience. The Antlers did not disappoint for my dining companions, one of whom is dairy intolerant. They were quick to adjust recipes to suit his needs. We dined on ribs, baked... More

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
