Our second visit (party of 4) to this well known E'town landmark was as disappointing as the first. We were hoping our first experience might be improved on since this establishment has been open long enough now to address its "growing pains". We had high hopes for this new incarnation but we still came away shaking our heads. This was... More

I've been an occasional customer of the Deers Head for years and was pleasantly surprised with what the new owners have done. The dining room is so pretty. We each had a soup, my husband a special Mexican meatball soup he really loved, he even wanted to bring one home. And I had the squash soup from the menu that... More

My mom and I came here on a snowy Monday for lunch since it is one of her favorite places to eat. It was nice and quiet, so we grabbed a table by the fireplace. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We ordered an appetizer of the poutine, which was delicious! The perfect amount of cheesy, fries and saltiness.... More

I've had dinner here twice in the past week and on both occasions the meal was quite good. I had a burger one evening that arrived medium rare, as ordered, and the composed salads are excellent. On both evenings our food arrived quickly after ordering, which I like. The place is newly reopened, freshly painted and could benefit from art... More

The Deer's Head reopened this fall (2016) with a new look and new chef. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The renovation looks great. They have some minor problems to overcome – they get slammed with people every night at 6 so there can be a wait and they aren't taking reservation for party's under 6. They also took... More

After decades of driving past this place - assuming it was gloomy and mediocre at best - we finally stopped for late lunch on a beautiful, breezy late summer afternoon. What a surprise! A lovely, spacious, light (almost empty) dining room/bar, a sweet little shop with locally-sourced food items and a large, airy porch for dining and sky-gazing. But best... More

I recently had a lunch date with my husband at this restaurant. We tried this place because of a review in our local paper. We were completely dissatisfied with the meal and the wait. We waited for over an hour for our meal. Our waitress said 3x it will be right out. (She offered no compensation) Our meal comes.... Italian... More

Sorry to hear about your experience. We have struggled with getting the meals out on time for the lunch crowd and have been making improvements. We try to get all our bread from a local baker and I myself have been unhappy with some of the sizes that are used for sandwiches so have tried to make some change in... More
