We have been twice now and have loved it each time! We were just there 3/6/17 around 6:00 and our waitress was great! She was very personable and quick! We have only sat on the restaurant side and't wait to come back and try the bar side, just hope your bartender has a smile on his face!
We have recommended to all our friends from Southern Illinois to drive over, it's worth it!

As a roadrat, I am dining alone as usual, and while on my way to yet another fast food meal, I saw the sign for Live Music while driving down Columbia street in Evansville. I came in for a bar burger ...(a personal favorite) and ended up ordering a pork steak with red beans and rice. Phenomenal!
That was on Tuesday night. Tonight, Wednesday, live music is featured, so I HAD to return to sample the local wares. I ordered a DoubleDecker pizza, a speciality of the house. The 10" pepperoni, sausage, and extra cheese, is too much for one, but the leftovers go in the rental car trunk to be warmed up for breakfast. I loved the pork steak and fixings, but the DoubleDecker pizza was a little dry for me, albeit tasty. Maybe this appetite is looking for something a little less healthy :-).
If I'm ever in the area again, I hope I remember this place; my aged brain isn't as good as it was, but since the Deerhead by name, has been here since 1983, and business on a cold Wednesday night seems to be steady, I imagine it will be here for my next visit, whenever that is. My server, Jeff, says that the place was here long before it became the Deerhead, by the way.
Oh, yeah; the live music: I didn't stay for long after acoustic musician John Hurst started performing (my work beckons), but he plays a nice acoustic guitar and has a pleasant singing voice in kind of a coffeehouse style . I'd come to see him again.
And I'd come eat here again.

My dad and I met a couple of friends at Deerhead on a Wednesday evening. The food and service were excellent. Two of us had the regular Stromboli and two had the Texas Stromboli. It was agreed that... Deerhead's stromboli's are better than some places in Evansville. The atmosphere was quiet enough that you felt you didn't have to out talk he music that was playing in the background like you do in some restaurants. See More

The staff was awesome, the music was fantastic. Had a wonderful time except for the old drunk guy being rude and obnoxious as hell. Made my girl scared to go to the bathroom by herself. Had to escor...t her every time. See More

Learned a lesson to day. CHECK YOUR FOOD!!!
Yesterday we went to the Deerhead cafe and ordered a pizza to go. They said it would be 35-40 minutes. We picked the pizza up after 30 minutes and went home... to have dinner. We should have looked at it because you can see in the pictures it was borderline burnt. We called them and they said bring it back either last night or today which we did. They told us this is how their pizzas are served there is nothing they can do about it. Lesson learned. CHECK YOUR FOOD!!! See More
