We went to have jiggs dinner and weren't disappointed, it was great. Big portions of all the veggies but could have had a bigger piece of saltmeat. All the food was good and I would recommend it. Service was fast and friendly.

My husband and I are visiting the province and decided to try the restaurant because it had good reviews. We ordered a hot turkey sandwich which came as some dried up turkey on a slice of bread. No dressing or vegetables. Came with tiny Coleslaw...and was charged for gravy. My husband order French onion soup which turns out to be the worst one he has ever had. French onion soup requires onion not onion soup mix and was microwaved. The food wasn't cooked fresh and i don't care for microwave. Order pop which came out flat which we sent back and ordered beer instead. Not worth the $75 spent.More

We went to the Deer Lake Motel Restaurant because it was rated the #1 restaurant in Deer Lake. That's sad, because it really wasn't wonderful. The cod was cooked from frozen, as were the vegetables (carrots). Hubby's steak was truck-stop average. If you're looking for...somewhere to eat in the area, we suggest you drive to Corner Brook where we saw better looking options or better yet, go beyond CB to the Salt Box in Benoit's Cove. We had the best seafood platter there! Alternatively, the CAFE in Wiltondale has excellent moose burgers.More

Food here is usually very good, However the fish today was totally gross. I had the one piece fish and chips. The very very small piece of fish was paper thin and cut from the lower tail. I guess they thought I was tourist.

Staying at the motel for a couple nights, the free breakfast was good and served in a timely manner so I decided to coming back for wing night. They were understaffed like everywhere else now a days. The place was incredibly busy but the few...servers they had did an excellent job and in the best of moods. The wings were spot on and the beverage was cold. Will definitely be eating here again on my way through deer lake. As soon as a table had left they were quickly( but diligently) cleaning and getting the next in line in for a seat. Props to the folks working there for sure.More

Whether you need a snack, breakfast, or big meal, this restaurant in Deerlake will fit the bill. A friendly staff greets you with a smile and will make certain you are well fed. A good selection on the menu, typical of the local offerings and...properly prepared. Twice in three days I have had the fresh Caesar salad, (dressing on the side)and seafood chowder. It is accompanied by a fresh bread roll. Yummy. My husband ordered a clubhouse sandwich the first time and Taco salad the next time. Of course he had fries. We’ve had breakfast as well and it included bologna and beans a Newfoundland favourite. Not fancy, but clean and appetizing.More

On Friday August 16th, 2019, while travelling west towards Gros Morne National Park my wife and I stopped for lunch at Deer Lake Motel Restaurant located at 15 Trans-Canada Hwy in Deer Lake NFLD. This place is in a very convenient location, open 24 hours...with free Wi-Fi, and is a casual sit-down type restaurant and not a fast food place. From its varied menu, my wife chose a small Caesar salad with grilled chicken while I opted for the seafood clam chowder with a western sandwich. Both of our lunches were delicious, the portions were generous and tasty, and the prices were very reasonable. That afternoon the restaurant was a bit busy, but we did get served quickly by our friendly server. We would recommend this place as a great pit stop when heading to or returning from Gros Morne National Park. We would rate it as a four out of five stars.More

after a bad experience the night before (not here) we were hopeful the Deer Lake restaurant would be a good place to stop for lunch since it is right at the highway interchange for traveling north and east. Pleasant surroundings in a well lit dining...room attached to the motel. The waitress was very friendly and efficient. Lunch was burgers, fries and sodas but all were prepared well and service was quick and allowed us to get back on the road to Quirpon.More

We have enjoyed many wonderful restaurants during our 2 weeks in Newfoundland. We have tried fish and chips and enjoyed all of them. The fish and chips here were the best we have had. Fish perfectly breaded and not greasy and chips nicely browned and...a good size portion. ThanksMore

We stayed at the adjoining hotel and ate in this restaurant trying to stay out of hurricane Dorion's way. What a great find. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all perfect. The hot breakfast buffet is included with the stay and has everything you could want....The soup, chowder, cod tongues, halibut, jigs dinner, steak sandwich and home made rolls were all fantastic. All the servers were efficient and super friendly. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and clean. We highly recommend this restaurant.More

I have given the Deer Lake Motel restaurant a '4' stars again - the food remains very good value for money, is well cooked, tasty and served by very friendly, efficient, knowledgeable staff. We had several meals (breakfast and dinner) over a period of a...few weeks. Evening meals remain excellent, the breakfast however and this is the reason for the but... in the title. They have started to serve seasoned hash-browns with their breakfasts and one of the seasonings is garlic. Unfortunately my wife is allergic to garlic and quite frankly I don't want the taste of garlic to linger for the rest of the day! The staff were very good and offered to substitute grilled tomatoes instead of the hash-browns but its not the same. A choice of non-seasoned hash-browns would be a much better option.More
