The Plantation is a regular summer stop when we're out with the dog. The big deck has special leash holders and always bring a bowl of water. The burgers and salads are excellent!

I stopped by for lunch to see if the place had changed since we lived in the area about ten years ago. A fast and attentive waitress provided good, basic service. I ordered the Bleu Mushroom burger, medium rare with Cajun fries. The fries were cold, the Cajun seasoning was excessive and of poor quality. I left 80% behind. The... More

Went out with friends to this casual, low-key bar and grill. There is a pool table, electronic dart board, and a few TVs to watch sports. Friendly and accommodating waitress. One friend had the Jack Daniels burger with tavern chips which was really good. Another friend had The Phat Pig (pulled pork and ham with cole slaw) sandwich and onion... More

I wish there were a rating between Average and Very Good. I'd say that The Plantation is Pretty Good. We have only been there a few times, but invariably, the people who order burgers, wings, and fries are happier with their choices than those of us who try less typical pub fare. Their fried foods in particular have been spot-on--if... More

This place is not much to look at but we popped in for lunch and we are glad that we did. They had very good burgers and this is the only place that I have ever been to that had Caszcazilla from the Ithaca Brewing company on tap. It was delicious. Although we ate inside because of the weather I... More

This isn't the fanciest place in town. It's more of a hideaway, even though it's on a main road. The food is very good, and reasonably priced. They have a great outdoor deck and they are pet friendly. If you want to relax, try it out. Easy to find, good parking. -brian

This is overdue, as I have been there a number of times. Just this week again. Not a fancy place, good burgers, wraps, sandwiches, pub grub and specials. A little out of the way, but mostly locals. Great place in Ithaca to get away from college kids. Outdoor dining on the deck is very nice or just to have drinks.... More

This place is laid back and casual only been here a handful of times but never had a bad experience. The food here is delicious and the staff including management were super chill and treated us like family. I tell everyone about them that is looking for a bar and restaurant to visit.

Thank Jennifer C
