“don't listen to the nay sayers!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We took my son out for his birthday on a Sunday afternoon. The service was good and I thought we got our food pretty quickly considering that the restaurant was almost full at 5:15. My son thought the steak was very good, was not tasteless or unseasoned, and the extra fat was brought home for the dog who loved it! Plenty of meat to eat. I had ordered the fish and then discovered that it wasn't a fillet but a whole fish. They graciously changed my order. The ham and hamburger steak, the baked potato and fries were all good. Then, because they had forgotten to bring the salads out right away, we were given 3 free desserts and they apologized profusely. Atmosphere and cleanliness--all good. Not overpriced either. Can't complain and will return.

“Nostalgia always fun!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Have been coming to this area for 20+ years and tradition . If a real picky eater not for everyone, but love the memories made with our families here and portions are huge usually split meal. Fast service and just down to earth old timey rustic log cabin . In tourist season may expect a wait,Go back every chance we can get:)))))

“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.”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

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.
