Checking in was a breeze. We had a reservation. The service was as hoped. No waiting. I ordered the prime rib which was cooked exactly as requested. My dining companion had a fish dish. No complaints. I just could not have asked for more. I have not been back here in quite some time. I will have to put this... More

We've eaten at The Antlers many times. I believe the menu has changed at some point in the past year or two, as the dish that I chose - beef tenderloin medallions - had not been available in the past. Our food was very tasty. The biscuits that were served as the bread offering were incredibly good. Apparently the bread... More

Went a week after Valentine's Day for a post poned meal. Had excellent service. Wednesday was steak night so was super cheap for a three course meal! Shrimp is amazing and their coconut cheesecake special was to die for! Nice wine and beer selections as well! Perfect for family, date night, or even just dessert!

Janet and I are kinda picky when it comes to going out to dinner, since it happens fairly rarely. The one place where we have NEVER been disappointed is the Antlers Restaurant on Rt 366, east of Cornell. In business since 1972 first as the Stables and then The Antlers - it is still run by the same two gentlemen,... More

We found this restaurant in the book in our hotel room. We looked it up online and were intrigued by the menu. There were many choices on the menu. We did not have reservations, but if you are going in the later evening hours, I would suggest making a reservation. We got there shortly after 5:00 and the place was... More

Not many choices, stuffed shrimp very small. The atmosphere was pleasant and the servers were good. My stuffed shrimp were good but as I stated shrimp very small. The only thing I would get there would be lobster bisque but I don't think I will go back.

Thank azile40
Management response:

We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your entire experience ! In reference to the shrimp.. we have been serving 21-25 ct/lb sized shrimp which are categorized as either extra large or jumbo depending upon the source's verbiage since 1982 and have not wavered. Check out the shrimp size at other restaurants, you will likely be hard-pressed to find larger... More

We had a family dinner for a large group. We were promptly seated and the waitress was friendly and attentive. The decor is rustic like a hunting cabin. I had the prime rib special and lobster bisque. The bisque tasted maybe a little over cooked but it was still good. The prime rib came medium even though i ordered medium... More

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.
