Deer Lodge, Ojai Reviews

  • Very pleasantly surprised by this place. The food was great. They use fresh local ingredients and BBQ platter, house chili , and fried chicken were excellent. Can't wait to go try more of their menu. Service is nice as well. My only concern is why I never tried the Deer lodge sooner.

  • Just found this place while driving around the 33 going up the mountains! Seriously great food!! they also have live music and a outside eating area. Very cabin lodge feel as the name would suggest, which gives it that unique vibe. I have made this a routine stop when I am in the area, I reccomend to anyone in the area to give it a try!

  • After 6 years out here we finally get to eat here. It's always looks so busy on Sunday afternoon we've always keep going by. Well Saturday is for me truly tops. That wonderful time of day between lunch and dinner, lunner or dunch whatever you call it was a perfect time to hit this joint. We basically had the back patio to ourselves and the barbecue was excellent . Definitely be back

  • Loved the cucumber margaritas and macaroni and cheese... however, the kitchen service was slow for some unknown reason, but the table servers were awesome and provided popcorn multiple I would like to return and give it another try...also kid and pet friendly... casual atmosphere as we just finished a long hike and were not formally dressed in any way shape or form yet treated like all the other customers

  • First slowest assistence ever ..waited fir help food and order forever waitress did t check back with us paid but still had friends coming because she took so long they missed happy hour I had to go in and get her I told her we need to get this order in by happy hour she said no problem then because of her being so stinking slow to the table tells us the two added to our party that they couldn’t get happy hour. It’s 20 minutes now they e been here we are still waiting to order slowwweee bad service had truffle fries great horrible kale salad great chicken strips
