With so many restaurants in Ithaca it has been too long since my last visit to the Antlers. There is something uniquely satisfying about the Antlers that I believe make it "best of the best". Every element achieved a degree of perfection that when combined...More

We stopped here on a Sunday evening with our college student. What a pleasant surprise to find the Sunday three course meal deal. The interior resembles a cozy hunting lodge. The fire is going, the wood paneling is warm and inviting. We all ordered selections...More

Elegant: "tastefully fine or luxurious...", "gracefully refined and dignified...", "gracefully concise and simple..."; you get the idea. You're greeted at the door, often by one of the owners, and the waitress is always there but not in your face. You appreciate the acoustics if you...More
