We go here often for lunch. A few favorites are: Greek salads❤️; Strombolis; and pizza. Try the 8" 3 topping . Good service, and priced reasonably.

I feel the Deerhead Pizza and menu choices very average. I have tried it several times, the last time I was invited I actually just sat while others ate. There is just nothing on the menu that I find is very good. It is a very popular local tavern, but I do not ever feel the need to go back.

Met a few coworkers at this location for a bite to eat and nice atmosphere. Ate out on the patio and was a nice feel to the tavern. Ordered a sausage and pepperoni pizza that was just the right size for a single person. Server (Angela) was prompt, but did not interrupt too much based on the numerous conversations occurring...

Deerhead was chosen for a quick business meeting. All 3 of us were in a hurry but had a number of items to cover quickly. Our server understood the situation and was great at getting our order quickly. She was attentive but did a wonderful job of not interrupting the conversation. 2 of us ordered the Greek Salad and the... More

Deerhead is small place but packs a big punch when it comes to their pizza. The cheese is piled on and extra gooey- yum! Their sandwiches are also delicious, especially their Stromboli's. If you are looking for something light, go with their Greek salad. It's a decent size portion with great taste.

The food is as delicious as the atmosphere is uniquely relaxed. We've had their appetizers, subs, salads and pizza. Everything is very good. Our favorite pizza is the double decker, it takes longer to cook but is worth the wait. They normally have live music in the evenings and they have a good vibe to the place. In this pic... More

Local restaurant that we have loved for years! The double decker pizza is a must have! Another favorite is the Slovakia, it's like a pork gyro!

It's a neat place to go eat pizza with family or out for an adult night. My kids and I love to sit on the patio (it's right on the sidewalk and enclosed and heated in winter). They even go inside and watch they cooks make the pizza. And occasionally my husband and I will go there for date night... More

This is a neighborhood place, frequented by regulars, except when live music draws patrons from all over town. There's not much live music in the winter, so it's a pretty quiet crowd of families, even during Monday Night Football when we ate there. My tenderloin sandwich was very nice, and the bread was toasted just right. My wife and grandson... More
