Deer Lodge Reviews & Ratings

  • Food, drinks, live music, great aptmosphere, always a great time, has never let me down. You can sleep the BBQ from way down the street. Just follow your nose, and it won't let you down.

  • Widely known to be a local pub and a biker stop at the bottom of a wonderful canyon road, Highway 33. I finally decided to make a stop with my mates to enjoy some lunch on a fabulous Saturday. With the BBQ smoker blazing away we were greeted quickly and received a couple of tables to accommodate our party. The atmosphere is rustic and inviting. The food is average to above average. Weekend BBQ included a pull pork sandwich and BBQ spare ribs. The fat ratio in the pull pork sandwich could have been better and the ribs were quite dry. They served six ribs and a side for $16. The BBQ sauced was simply squirted on top of the pile of ribs. Soft drinks were an astounding $4! Quite a tourist trap price I have to admit. Our server was happy to offer separate checks, which I commend them for, and I am certainly happy to not be charged the "kitchen fee" as I have read on other reviews. Other than the location and the quaintness of decor, Deer Lodge, may not be of great value other than a casual watering hole for drinks and an app.

  • Delicious food! Had the Lodge Burger. Oh my goodness. Great selection of beer. Love the rustic atmosphere.

  • Go there. Get the fried chicken. That's all you really need to know. The menu is a little limited, the bathrooms are outside, the service is OK, but once you taste the chicken none of that will matter.

  • Personalities of a rock...all of them. Come on people cheer up and get good tips... you can run a biz into the ground
