“Dirty Dishes”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

I have gone to this place 5 times since it opened. The first time I was served with a dirty coffee cup. A friend convinced me to go times 2,3, and 4 which were ok. Now, the 5th time I once again am served on dirty dishes.

Won't go back even at the behest of friends.

“Don't pass this by.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

My husband and I have been to Deagan's several times (lunch only) and have always had a wonderful experience. They change their menu seasonally, taking advantage of the locally grown items whenever possible. The falafel patties are fried perfectly, light and flavorful with a crisp salad, pulled pork sandwich with fries was delicious, fish tacos (when available) are wonderful. Something for everyone's taste on the lunch and dinner menu. Warm wood and brick look to the restaurant and large bar area (including Christmas Story Leg lamps). The servers are experienced and efficient. Frankly, we think it is much better than Melt down the street and usually less crowded. As you would expect, there is a great selection of beers and fair prices.

“Trying to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

What it is not.
I found the food interesting and experimental but not always to my taste.
The large TVs are always a bad sign for me - screams sports bar, noise, distraction. Deagen's is a pretty, cavernous interior with a large, friendly U-shaped bar. A second quieter party room exists where we were lucky enough to be seated. Parking is abundant and to the back of the building.
The staff is fairly friendly and efficient. The place was backed.
Lamb stew is one of my favorite dishes. I noticed that of the three members with stew of our party of seven, none of them finished it. A lot of poking and prodding of the food went on but not a lot of eating. The exotic flavor did not seem to blend with the environment. On the way out I heard one mutter, "I won't order that again."
The french fries were great.
The hamburger was problematical. Lots of pretzel bun (rather tasty - made the burger look huge) but very little meat. What there was was quite good.
For the price the burger was a bit of a cheat.
Other food at the table met with varying degrees of success.
No one who got a drink said anything about the drink one way or the other.
I might go back but not in any hurry. For the young crowd in the neighborhood with some cash in their pockets this might be fine and fun.

“Good Food, Great for Casual Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Ate here several times. Friendly staff, good food, reasonable prices. Business locals seem to gather here for lunch. Casual yet nice for a burger or sandwich.

“What's the big deal?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

This is an extremely overrated restaurant. I live pretty much around the corner from it, have tried eating there twice thinking that maybe the first time was unsatisfying due to being busy, but no second time was just add disappointing. Bottom line - overrated and overpriced.
