Deerhead Tavern is a fun place to dine. You can eat in the bar, family room, banquet room or dine in the enclosed porch area. I love their fresh Greek Salad it is a very generous serving enough for three or four people. Their menu has a variety of offerings. I just love the atmosphere and the quality of the... More

Pizza that is double stacked, where can you get that anywhere? Plus if you go on certain days they have live music but check their FB when those are posted. You can even sit outside in an enclosed patio. I love their stromboli, which is served on a hoagie bun that when it is toasted stays cheey with a crunchy... More

Deerhead Pizza Tavern has some excellent pizza, cold beer & soft drinks, and great atmosphere! On one side they have regular restaurant tables, and the other side has a large old-style bar & bar stools, pool tables, dart boards and other items. Their thin & crispy pizza is some of the best pizza around! You won't regret going there!

We love the pizza at the Deerhead. Just a little local bar but the pizza is so good. We always plan to take some home but end up eating it all!

I enjoy the food and atmosphere of Deerhead, particularly because it is a local establishment. The evening music is good as long as you don't want to have an in depth conversation.

From the generous pour on cocktails to the tasty food, this is a classic Evansville tavern. Always dependable with good service and good food.

The food is always good, drinks are more than reasonably priced. They do have a small inside family room as well as inside street cafe seating. (It can be hot out there in the summer). The servers are alway friendly. Looks a little questionable from the outside but go on in...you'll have friendly service with great food!

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.
