Great owners, where they know your name, and order. The clubhouse has real turkey and the breakfast are homemade. Just like mom used to make.Don't let the decor put you off, this restaurant is for the well-traveled customer or those that know better. Very eclectic crowd.

Yep this place is a hole in the wall, a dive, biker hang out, etc but that's not why its stayed in business all these years. It's the food, the low prices, and good service that keep this place going. If those qualities don't matter to you then go elsewhere.

Did not enjoy this experience at all. Very rough and dirty place but the food is inexpensive if you like bacon and eggs, toast etc. Hasn't been improved since the last time I came here but with the current Great Recession in Calgary it is still going strong with locals.

I have lived in the Calgary area for 26 years and finally visited this little hole in the wall. It is easy to drive by this building that appears to have seen better days. My wife and I enjoy the trendy places that everyone else seems to, like the Blue Star, OEB and Vendome. So it was a bit of... More

I have driven by this place for years and finally tried it. First impression was the front door, kicked in a few times I think. There were several people inside so it was looking up. The service is very good. Ordered eggs and sausage and it came very fast. Food was OK and hot. Now for the bad, this place... More

Run down and dreary would be how I would describe the Deer Head. It even had a mouse trap under my table which was reassuring. The food is very greasy and basically trucker fare. Would not recommend this place.

If you like a taste of the wild side come here for their famous breakfasts. With bacon, eggs, toast and coffee coming in at a shade under a tenner, this place may be for you. Some people swear by the fantastic value but it did remind me of a transport café or a bikers gang hideout. I do not have... More

Have eaten here on numerous occasions. Never had a bad meal no food poisoning either. This is a basic diner but had prompt service and reasonable prices.

I love going to Deer Head Cafe, they are always nice and the food is great for a terrific price. Steak, eggs, potatoes, toast and coffee for under $10. You can read the paper while you eat or chat with your friends. A MUST go.
