The waitstaff is awesome. The renovation they did is great, bright and beautiful. That fish was horrendous, and the tartar sauce was plain and lifeless. If it wasn't for the kids with me I would have absolutely given someone a lesson in cooking. Next time I will stick with the burger and fries, hopefully that can't get screwed up.

Went to this pub for a burger and a brew. We live in the next town over. In Stoughton, I am sure the locals are very supportive of this pub. We have been to Deaks for lunch a couple of times for lunch. We decided to go at night and give the pub a try. We all liked are sandwiches.... More

A bit noisy, but the only game in town past 10:00 p.m. Servers are always friendly and efficient. Wish they would bring the Reuben back.

I love this bar! Very friendly atmosphere, great staff, and very good food. I was up from South Carolina for a week, which coincided with Hurricane Matthew, so my visit to Stoughton was mainly to celebrate my father's 90th Birthday, but it was an evacuation as well. The people at Deak's made me feel at home right away. I was... More

The remodeling is almost done and it looks really nice. More bar room and a very open friendly feeling. Nice casual dining experience.

We just wanted a quick meal and a drink so stopped in here. The food was good...service was good. We got our meal quickly, I had a burger which was very good and a beer. Nothing fancy just a good old local pub.

This is a nice local pub/restaurant to go to when you want a quick bite and a beer. The food is good and reasonable. The onion rings are really good. We have always had good service. Kids are welcome, so if you are from out of town and are here for a tournament, don't hesitate to come here.

I've eaten here quite a few times, and nothing I have ever had would be anything I'd call exceptional. As a matter of fact I have had meals I'd call down right bad. The other day I had a Cuban sandwich that was dry and bland. They have a long way to go to get a 5 star review.

Enjoyed a buy-one-get-one from by lovable Mad City Cocktails book while touring Stoughton one weekend morning. Deak's menu is nearly identical (the same?) as Headquarters in Oregon. They must be affiliated. Hungover, we went for the bloody marys. Unfortunately, Deak's bloodies didn't come with the long meat stick like at Headquarters, however it was better mixed (i.e. A more balanced... More
