“Great Food Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

The wait was lengthy. We arrived about 6:30 and already there was an hour wait but the food and service was wonderful and the price was great. Almost everyone walked out with leftovers.

“Great food and reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

I had the rainbow trout which was delicious! Deer Lodge is a neat place and has reasonable prices. This is my Daddy's favorite place to eat in Hiawassee and he lived in Hiawassee for about 10 years. We have a vacation cabin in Hiawassee and this is one of my favorite places to eat!

Get there about 5:00 p.m. - My Dad's advice

“Surprising!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Incredibly good food - PLENTY to share. You'll see most folks leaving with 'to-go' boxes. Crowded, wait-staff is busy - but, we've never waited long for our food. You must try the fried-green-beans - yes, fried! It's a seasonal restaurant so call before you go ((706) 896-2181). Interesting history.

“The looks of the place will fool you....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Place doesn't look like much, and you can blow right past it on Highway 75 and really not even notice it. But, you are missing a treat if you have never stopped in for a meal in the 42 years it has been there doing business. Great value for your hard earned dollars, and more food than you can eat. Oh, by the way, the food is good too! Tonight I had the Rainbow Trout, and it was great. Two whole fish on the bone, a side and a salad and hushpuppies was more than I could eat. I brought home a piece of fish, some slaw and hushpuppies. You will see many folks leaving with to-go boxes, it is just how it is. I ride a motorcycle up that way often (as I did tonight) and the ride up and back via Helen Ga is just awesome too. Give them a try. Note: No credit cards or debit cards taken...only green cash or your good check!
