We've been to the Deer Head three times in the past three months primarily for the phenomenal jazz. It's about an hour from our home and well worth the trip. Big time jazz players...Grammy award winners. They play three sets from 7-11 p.m. and there is a nominal entertainment charge...about 1/10th of what they collect in big city. You have your table for the whole evening. They don't kick you out after a set. It's cozy and intimate. Anything but fancy. Very informal. Wear your jeans. You can talk to the musicians, too. The place is smokin'. And, to boot, the food is fantastic....and reasonably priced. We've had fish, spinach turnover, crab cakes, burgers, parmasean, strawberry shortcake. Everythig is delicious, wholesome, well-prepared, and nicely service...and it comes fresh-made from the kitchen piping hot...just like the jazz. Have not stayed at the Deer Head. It's an old building. So, I wouldn't anticipate larger rooms. Just go for th entertainment and dinner.
