This was simply delightful in every way! The staff was both efficient and entertaining, the room and the building is full of charm, and the music was amazing! We stayed for one night on our way from Baltimore to NYC and we really can't wait to come back. Next time, we plan to bring friends and family with us!!

We actually do not sleep over here. We go for the music. Our waitress, Jenna, is always amazing. Skip Wilkins, piano; Tony Marino, bass; Walt Bibinger, guitar were awesome together. Food was good with the exception of shrimp scampi, way to much lemon. You want a nice night out listening to music go here.

We,d never been to the Deer Head Inn before but we'll be back! Everyone was so friendly - bartender Jen, server Erica, etc. Great place with a lot of history and a great old style room - Bill Charlap was the draw for us! Wonderful well prepared dinner (French chicken breast for me, salmon for my constant dining companion) and...

The Deer Head Inn is very charming , with it's wraparound porch and inviting atmosphere it's a great choice to go relax anytime of year . The waitstaff is friendly , music fills the old inn with accomplished local flair . The food , drinks and prices well worth the visit .

This is a a true local treasure. The Deer Head has been running live jazz for 50 years. the food is great and the ambiance wonderful. Not to be missed on a visit to the Poconos. A favorite local hangout. Its a club with some rooms available, not a hotel per se.

We went for the music and there is a 10.00 per person charge for that. No discount if you ordered dinner, which was a disappointment. Waitress was okay, but not as attentive as she should have been. Not a lot of choices, very limited entree menu and the wine prices were very high. My crab cakes were okay, but I...

I looked this up before we left as we wanted to go somewhere with live music. My boyfriend had one of the specials, a short rib, very tasty, but he was a little disappointed to realise it was boiled, he felt it would have tasted better being seared at the end. I had the quesadillas, these were very very tasty!...

Amazing jazz, food, and friendly atmosphere! If you long for a weekend without modern distractions, this is the place! Hike the many trails in the area or float down the Delaware River, then top off the evening listening to some of the finest jazz musicians around! The Deer Head Inn will leave you longing for days gone by - this...

Nice place to visit for a weekend. Many locals appear to hang out here. Average age seemed to be >70. Close to parks and trails. Very noisy. Building needs a lot of repair work. Next to Appalachian Trail.

Great B&B/Hotel in DWG - charming, slightly rustic, excellent service and unlike anywhere else we visited. It is not a slick, corporate chain hotel (if that is what you are looking for, go elsewhere) it is a beautifully preserved, owner-managed, three story guesthouse run by delightful people who put on incredible jazz music in the bar downstairs most nights. Rooms...
