We used to hit wing night, but they stopped caring about our satisfaction. Good beer choices. Growler fills. The owner met me there for a birthday growler fill the morning of Christmas Eve. That is outstanding. After the 3rd time of soggy wings we stopped going tho. They have added outside seating now.

We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated in a booth in the dining area. For a Saturday night around 630 they weren't very busy. I'm guessing that's because it's not easy to get to if you are coming south on 61. I ordered the shrimp and scallops over linguine with Alfredo sauce. The portion was large and it... More

This was the first time we tried the Deer Lake Pub and Restaurant (DLP). It wasn't real busy for a Saturday night. The place is very clean and the staff were very attentive. The dining room is very nice and clean. They have a large fireplace insert that probably is great during the winter. There are two big screen TV's.... More

I had stopped here one day recently to have a cold beer and thought I would try lunch. I had the steamed clams in a garlic butter sauce, very yummy! I also had boneless wings in a hot bbq sauce and homemade fries, all very good. I had enough to take some home (well at lease the fries and wings,... More

We went to the restaurant part of the place. The service was great, our waiter was friendly! The food was tasty, enjoyed the beer special, and the prices were great!

The DLP, as it is affectionately known by locals, is a great pace to stop for a beer and a bite. Great craft beers, great lite fare and solid specials make for a nice stop. Add a great wing night, killer open mic, and annual events like the Rock and Hops Fest (Craft beer and original music) and you have... More

The food quality has decreased significantly over the past year. Deer Lake Pub used to boast of top notch and scratch made specialties. I would assume there is a new chef. Even the DLP staples have become lackluster and tasteless.

My husband and I went on a Wednesday because my son and his friends go for wing night. So I thought we should try it out. I got the bone in zesty garlic wings. They were good and my husband got the old bay and he said it needed more old bay. The fries they come with are good. So... More

First of all kudos to our waitress; professional, efficient, and great service. As for food the wings, pulled pork, and sandwiches were rated highly but the two pasta dinners were tasteless and flavorless. If we ever go to DLP again it will be pub grub all the way.

This place....where do I start. Staff is so friendly. We had three people ask us how everything was. The food was to die for. And my husband loved the beer selection. We will definitely be back. Stop by you won't be disappointed.
