I am probably also in the minority here, but I don't think yacc is
really that difficult either -- LALR is fine.
ANTLR is just another tool in my portfolio; the reason I'm using it
for my current project is that I wanted to take advantage of the tree
operation. In fact, we're not getting quite the benefits we'd
expected. It's perhaps better than yacc, but perhaps not.
What it is, is a different paradigm. Another was of looking at
whatever problem you're looking at.
If it works, great. If yacc works better, great.
