“wow what amazing changes!!!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Wow what a amazing overhaul! Old owners retired and ted will be missed. But I am impressed!
The atmosphere has changed and place has a whole new vibe. They serve bread with meals at dinner now. The menu has changed and food times are so quick. Mr.LexingtonOhio7 try it now. They have all new servers except for the best Misty and Lindy. The best servers ever!! Just when I thought My favorite place couldn't get any better. Keith is the new owner and there manager is Denise. Very nice lady and very hard working. Misty said Friday night she was working on a new drink menu and they where working on a new summer menu. Beef and Noodles to die for and prime rib. Daily specials on food and drinks. Anyone who has had a bad time there before I encourage you to try it again. Things are different and have improved a 1000 percent. We had a event there and was very impressed. The food was amazing and my bartender was amazing (misty). Thank-you Bobby for the amazing prime-rib. Give this place a 10 out of 10. Try this place now before you make your opinion. You wont be disappointed! Ask for Misty as your server tell her that the lady with the best cosmo ever sent you!

“best get away”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Want to have lunch or dinner and a nice get away? Well this is the place to be. We sat out on the patio. What a amazing view. The golf course is the most gorgeous golf course I have ever seen. We had 10 of us in our group and the place was so busy, but we didn't have a wait at all. Our server misty took such good care of us we felt like family and we where the only ones there. She was so funny and our little boy loved her. You can tell she is a mom, she is so helpful. We loved the food and server so much we went back the next day. We had Amanda and she was great also. We were in town for peddler. We loved it so much we are driving down this weekend from Cleveland to eat again. Thanks staff and misty for going the extra mile.

“Excellent view, bipolar food, average service”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

I've had dinner at deer ridge at least 8 times. First and foremost, this place has excellent atmosphere. The log cabin sits right over the golf course. You can sit inside by the fireplace in the winter or outside by a tee box and the practice green in the summer. The food is all over the place. Some of the dishes are really good.... Some are average. Sometimes the chef must get lazy and cuts corners and you get garbage. The service is really good if you get the owners / manager. Some of the hired help is not excellent and service can be slow. Most recently a meal of burgers and beer took two hours from the time we say down. We had to go find the manager to check out. That said, this is still a fun place to hang out. Just be patient, and the prices are reasonable.

“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

My husband golfs there weekly. The wives and I decided to eat and hang out while they golfed. The Bourbon Street Salad was the best salad I ever had. The other ladies had sand wedges and homemade fries. The food was spectacular. Our server was awesome. She was so funny and made the best cosmo I have had in many years. She also made us some fruity drinks they where like I was on the beach. The guys joined us and they had nachos which where enough to feed a army. They where awesome. Misty made them manhatans and a old fashioned. Something they couldnt get before. Everything we asked for she knew had to do it.We couldnt believe she had only been there a couple days. She seemed like she had been there for years. We know will be coming weekly.Thanks to staff and misty. Laura shes a keeper.

“Having a party? Not here!”

Went to a baby shower there for our friends, The staff could not have been less helpful if they tried. Terrible attitude, very unaccomodating.
