Had a reservation and called and moved it an hour earlier with no problem. Huge windows to see awesome view of lake from dining room. Was there for a beautiful sunset. Had special menu for week of Valentine's Day with good deal. Prime rib and spinach artichoke dip were delicious. Would recommend.

First time to the Deerhead. It was dark so we didn't share a view of the lake but the atmosphere was inviting. My first reaction was it's a "glorified bar" but I was pleasantly surprised with the menu. I ordered escargot and they were delicious. They were served in a garlic sauce sans the shells so I didn't have to... More

Two of us found dirt in our salad! However we have been going to this place for years and never had any thing like this before. Check your lettuce, if you order salad! Great service and reasonable prices. Beautiful view of Cayuga Lake!

It was clean. Our waitress was very nice and gave good service. The view was nice. But the food was just average. Over priced for the quality.

Deerhead was recommended by our B & B hosts. We did not have a reservation but after a short wait we were accommodated. Lovely food and good atmosphere.

We had a terrific experience with Craig and his staff. We met with him a few times to plan a wedding at the lodge at Cayuga Lake State Park (which, by the way, turned out to be a terrific experience including use of the cabins in the campgrounds). Craig was responsive, reasonable in price, and the food was just terrific.... More

Service was excellent from the greeting by the hostess, personal attention by the server and helpful staff. Rarely would I go out and order meatloaf but this dish was excellently prepared and served. It was our first trip to this restaurant but if we are in the area again, we will surely stop here.

Thank Mike M
