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....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.
