Returned to Newark for the first time in nearly 20 years and despite all the changes on campus it was great to see the deer park is still going strong. No, the nachos are not what they were from back in the day, but the patrons and staff are the same genuine friendly people they've always been and the sandwiches... More

Came here on a tuesday night so was not too busy. Came mainly for drinks and the atmosphere, did not eat any food. Bar has good service and an extensive range of different draft beers. They also had promotions on some of them and also the cocktails making it a cheap night out. Would highly recommend.

I've been to this neat pub twice now and have really enjoyed my meals both times. I love the building itself and the fact that a train nearly runs through the restaurant while you're eating- almost through the bathrooms hahaha! It's cool. The quesadilla was probably my favorite meal there. The staff has always been friendly. I don't necessarily care... More

Great place to have drinks and dinner. Being a great college town, it is sometimes hard to find a great place for older folks to enjoy a dinner. We chose to eat outside on the porch. What a great choice. It was fairly quite and enjoyable. This place is such a eclectic place to visit. There were students, bikers and... More

Been going to Deer Park for over 40 years. Great place to just hang out and talk. Food is ok, pretty standard. But go for the atmosphere, free popcorn, and happy hour specials. The place is divided into a restaurant side and a "towny" bar. If you sit at the town bar remember that it has a lot of locals,... More

Great drink specials and a large selection of craft brews. Food is good too. Sunday morning brunch is a regularly scheduled event for us and normally on the motorcycle.

Well, we heard it had great burgers and an amazing Bloody Mary bar so we decided to give it a try. I made reservations for a Sunday brunch and arrived a few minutes early. It was chaotic, young staff chatting away with and not really caring about the people walking in, and it wasn't even that busy. We were seated... More

Came here for a weekend lunch while visiting friends in the area and found a very broad menu that offered something for everyone. The food was good, the atmosphere comfortable and fun, and the wait staff was friendly and helpful. Recommend for family or friends.

Stopped in for a drink while visiting University of Delaware. Deer Park Tavern is on Main street just out of the thick of things for the University. Its a short walk to most parts of the school and the other shopping on Main Street. I didn't try the food, but the wait staff was very friendly, the place had character,... More

I guess this is a staple in Newark, Delaware. Located in an older building by the train tracks. Staff couldn't have been nicer - super accommodating and friendly. Food was fresh and tasty. Would definitely go back next time we are in town.
