Just go eat there. The food is awesome. Don't forget to make a reservation and order the peanut butter pie for dessert.

Two of us found dirt in our salad! However we have been going to this place for years and never had any thing like this before. Check your lettuce, if you order salad! Great service and reasonable prices. Beautiful view of Cayuga Lake!

It was clean. Our waitress was very nice and gave good service. The view was nice. But the food was just average. Over priced for the quality.

Deerhead was recommended by our B & B hosts. We did not have a reservation but after a short wait we were accommodated. Lovely food and good atmosphere.

We had a terrific experience with Craig and his staff. We met with him a few times to plan a wedding at the lodge at Cayuga Lake State Park (which, by the way, turned out to be a terrific experience including use of the cabins in the campgrounds). Craig was responsive, reasonable in price, and the food was just terrific.... More

Service was excellent from the greeting by the hostess, personal attention by the server and helpful staff. Rarely would I go out and order meatloaf but this dish was excellently prepared and served. It was our first trip to this restaurant but if we are in the area again, we will surely stop here.

Meal was quite good and the service excellent. The prices were reasonable for the food and beer. The view was lovely especially with the sun setting over the lake.

We came here for the first time in a long time. The delay in service was evident throughout the whole meal. We ordered calamari and it tasted very good, but was cold, when delivered to our table. The entrees took about a half hour more to get to our table. My husband said his prime rib was ok, flavor was... More

Wanted a restaurant with local flavor and a view of Lake Cayuga. Enjoyed an excellent salad bar and tasty entrees while doing just that. I had whitefish and my spouse had chicken piccata. The Finger Lake at this address is pretty mundane, straight, flat coast line, so not much to look at but staff was friendly and the window side... More

Wineries close down at 6pm, we asked a local gentleman for a recommendation; this was it. Food was fabulous. We were seated fast, but we easily sat for an hour waiting for our food. We asked if we could get separate checks waitress said they didn't do that on busy nights. Not good for a group of 7. All in... More
