After a dinner at this restaurant this review is being generated. Ample parking available and it is not only a restaurant but has a bar. Plenty of seating in the restaurant, friendly waitresses, has a salad bar available but has limited selection, ample servings with prices average for Ithaca,New York. Nothing great to report, just average and away from the... More

There are so many outstanding food options in the Ithica area, don't bother with the Rose. We were vacationing in the area and saw an ad "where the locals go" so thought we would try it but rather than a hidden spot with delicious home made options, it served mid-chain restaurant style food.

We live 45 minutes + away, but try to go in as often as we can. Never have had a bad experience. Good, homey food and a relatively quiet atmosphere. Waitstaff has always been very good, too.

While in town visiting our college student, we hooked up with some friends from the area who chose The Rose for our dinner meet. The staff was gracious and friendly, our waiter was fabulous dealing with our large party of 9. Good food, nice salad bar, lots of fun. From simple bar food to prime rib, something for all at...

The Rose is a long-time place favored by Ithaca locals. The food is usually quite good, and the menu is pretty much based on old favorites. If you're looking for the latest tastes and menus, go elsewhere, but for the basics done very well this is a good choice.

We stopped for lunch as it was near our hotel. The salad bar included soup, pizza, fried chicken and pasta for 7.95. The salad bar itself had everything you would want even without the hotfood. Great find

The food is very good and the salad bar is very good and well stocked. We had the turkey dinner and it was enjoyed by all. Dinner potions were ample. We all took home some of our meal. When we left around 6:00 pm, there was a line outside waiting for open tables.

One of our favorite restaurants. When you are hungry you can enjoy their delicious salad with so many choices and condiments to not only color but flavor your salad up. We eat here often and have never left disappointed. The fish sandwich and the salad bar are the same o's that I always do because they are so good. Presentations... More

This place feels like a mom and pop TGIF. Lots of food choices. The salad bar is always a plus. Lots of choices. One friend ordered the turkey dinner with mashed potatoes. Too much sodium. The mashed potatoes, for some reason, tasted unusually sweet. Another friend ordered the French dip. The meat was stuck to the cheese. This plate was... More
