The staff and the view was wonderful. The food, not so much. Had Taste of Italy that was very overdone .. manicotti was mushy and chicken parm was dry. Portions were small and the price was high. Have been coming to the Deerhead for years and have never been disappointed before.

We had dinner at the Deerhead and we really enjoyed it. The salad bar and fresh bread were very good. They have a new menu since I was there last and they had a really nice selection. Everyone was happy with their meals.

Ate here as part of the Cayuga Lake Winery "Mardi Gras" Wine Tour earlier in March 2017. The atmosphere is very casual and the environs leave a bit to be desired, but the food is very good, hot and delicious, the service is very efficient and very good with a friendly staff that does not bother you when you are...

The Deerhead has been serving dinners lakeside for a really long time. Their menu offers a variety of entrees from seafood to great pasta dishes! Their salad bar is also amazing, with lot of yummy items. Enjoy lunch or dinner, while looking out over beautiful Cayuga Lake. You won't go wrong at the Deerhead!

The Deerhead is a wonderful place. It has a good view of the lake and great food. Got the fish dinner which was prepared great and came out in a timely manner. We had a group of 30 and they didn't disappoint. Be sure to put the Deerhead on your list of places to eat while in Seneca Falls. You... More

Had a reservation and called and moved it an hour earlier with no problem. Huge windows to see awesome view of lake from dining room. Was there for a beautiful sunset. Had special menu for week of Valentine's Day with good deal. Prime rib and spinach artichoke dip were delicious. Would recommend.

First time to the Deerhead. It was dark so we didn't share a view of the lake but the atmosphere was inviting. My first reaction was it's a "glorified bar" but I was pleasantly surprised with the menu. I ordered escargot and they were delicious. They were served in a garlic sauce sans the shells so I didn't have to... More
