“Lot of food ~ little quality.”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Huge steak, huge potato, huge stack of onion rings. Steak had no seasoning, tough & tasteless . I would rather pay more for quality.

“Locals and travelers eat here.”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Largest steaks around,huge baked potatoes,fresh cut fries,onion rings in a rustic log cabin. Great prices and light eaters should share a plate! Steaks are cooked unseasoned so the patron can season to their liking Service is swift,food is cooked to order.But be prepared to wait to be seated. Take a number, sit back and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Deer Lodge is not a fancy place,just down home laid back rustic cooking,If you want fancy shmancy keep driving,Will return again.

“Enjoyed the steak and potato! Will drive an hour and a half for this.”

Love living and working in the North Atlanta area. Headed to Hiawassee for an unbelievable dinner at the Deer Lodge earlier this evening. The steaks are unbeatable. The service was friendly and great.
