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

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 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
