Well, we hadn't been in a couple of years, but we remembered the Antlers having amazing lobster bisque...tonight's bisque was just not the same...it was overly thick and had fishy tasting lobster bits in it. My husbands sandwich was "blah" and my chicken Marsala was bland...I hope we were just there on an off night because our past experiences there... More

The premier vegetarian restaurant with a long history of outstanding and innovative vegetarian food looks to need a makeover. And the prices have gone to what this reviewer found higher than appropriate. When all is said and done, vegetarian meals at $16.95 is a bit much.

The hotel desk clerk told me that the was clearly the best restaurant in the area. He wasn't wrong! Though the parking lot was crowded , there were still a few tables open. Followed the server's advice and ordered the two specials that evening, Lobster Bisque and Prime Rib. The former was delectable with generous bits of Lobster. The Prime... More

Went with a group of 7. Dishes ranged from Fillet to Shrimp & Scallops and all were prepared wonderfully. Staff was very friendly and worked hard to make it a great meal for all. It is obvious from the amount of vehicles in the parking lot that it is a favorite of many people. You'll get a great meal and... More

Hadn't been at the antlers for a long time. Really enjoyed it on my recent trip to Ithaca. The service was excellent, the food was great with a good variety of American food including fish, seafood, beef, ribs and chicken. 3 course meal on Sundays was a great value. I will definitely be going back.

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
