Made a reservation at 7:45, and waited over an hour to get bread (that never showed up), a starter, and the entrees that we had ordered at the same time. Outside seating and it started to get chilly and we werent checked on. Had to ask a busboy to turn on the outdoor heater near us. Also had to ask someone to check on the food (who turned out to be with the band, not a waiter, she told us it is always usually slow service). Extremely poor and slow service. Other party served and checked on frequently. The starter came at the same time the entee did. Over an hour later. Once again no bread. Pretty restaurant, good food and good music. The fried chicken was good but the gumbo was a let down, not much flavor at all nor spice. Although, I live almost an hour away so this is very inconvenient.

The place is great for beers and food. However the best is the crowd that hangs around. We arrived with a flat tire and in less than 1 minute 5 bikers offer their help to us. With a patching kit and a rubber band we have been able to fix the flat tire. Kudos to Joe, Tom and the rest.

Slow service on a slow night for an over cooked burger.

I ♥ the deerlodge! Great to table and the music is fabulous! Service can get slow at times but Ojai is a sleeply kind of town! One of favorite spots in town!!!

Not much of a night owl anymore but I bet this place has great food for us out of shape 60 year olds...I know it must be great as my friend and one of the great hosts of Chicago Tom Doody runs the place. It is on my bucket list or I'd give it 5 stars

The first time we tried deer lodge we were impress with their macaroni and cheese and steak dinner but the second time we were disappointed because I ordered fried chicken and I got chicken strips like mcdonalds we drove a long ways just to eat there now I just go to prime stk house for their fabulous meat and to wood ranch for their delicious macaroni and cheese.
