    I went to school in Newark, so I've been going to the DP for years. It's way upscale now from the early 80's. The food is good and reasonably priced. Nothing fancy. Not many vegetarian options but for meat eaters it's a nice menu. Service was great. Awesome beer selection. We had a group of 12 and sat in the separate room and it was perfect. We'll definitely return!

    The noise level was too much to even hear people at the table talk, the waitress was disinterested and had to ask for silverware and napkins. She did not even check to see if we needed anything else, we always had to hunt her down and ask. The brunch food was mediocre, nothing great. All around a disappointment for such an interesting building.

    There were 7 of us at brunch, grandparents down to grandkids. The food was delicious and our waitress was great! Great bang for your buck. Grandparents were impressed since they'd never been in this establishment before.

    Our server, Anya, was excellent. Our meal not so. My "Steak Salad" was made up of mostly Romaine ribs, brown at the edges, and included several clumps of lettuce, still attached at the base. The meat was cold by the time it arrived at the table. A friend's medium rare burger was almost well done and the portabella mushroom on hers and another's consisted of a tiny slice of mushroom on each burger. One came with fries instead of salad. Another's side of caramelized onions consisted of not quite 1/2 of the little cup in which it was served, about 1 TBS! This was a really poor showing fort a kitchen that has done better. If you just want to be a tavern, revise your menu. If you want to be a dining venue, get some cooks.

    Although we'd been to Deer Park many times, we tried the Sunday Brunch for the first time this week. The Bloody Mary bar is spectacular! Make your own drink using a wide range of hot sauces, mixers, and garnishes! The food was only OK: the French toast was thick-cut from bread that was too fresh, so it hadn't absorbed the egg all the way, and one of my eggs was broken. However, the home fries are delicious and the breakfast wrap was a winner! Although our waitress forgot what came with my breakfast, she was very accommodating and friendly.

    The Deer Park Tavern has been a favorite place of mine for over 40 years! It has changed over the years (for the better), and the food is great! The burgers are always my favorite - the best in town!

    The Deer Tavern was a very nice place. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Our waiter was lacking in personality. He barely talked and when he did he either mumbled or nodded. Did not care for him at all.

    They provided us with a great table setting for 10 along a bench wall so it was comfortable. We were 15 min late and they held the table for us and even gave us a courtesy call to make sure we were coming so they did not give our table away. We were actually at the lobby of the restaurant when we got the call. Service was great and we will come back again for casual dining or just drinks with friends and appetizers.

    What a nice surprise. Brunch was yummy. Loved the tavern atmosphere. Great jazz guitarist added a wonderful touch. If you like Bloody Mary's you need to come here! They have a "make your own" with more hot sauces and add ins than I've ever seen in one place!

    Parents' Weekend crowd was too much for the kitchen; we waited 55 minutes for the food to come out. The waitress did a good job updating us where in line our order was, but it was long delayed. Since the date of the Weekend is known well in advance, perhaps Deer Park might consider adding to the cook staff to cover the crowd for the Weekend.

    My fiancé and I decided to check out Deer Park Tavern and we absolutely loved it! The atmosphere was fun and the food was delicious. While you wait for your food, you can enjoy some popcorn that is offered. If you love trying new beer, this is the place to go. They have a huge selection of beer to choose from. We will definitely be going back again soon!
