Time Out says

The Deer Lodge has been an Ojai town institution since 1932. Part restaurant, part biker bar, part live music venue, the lodge-like space has a little something for everyone. Stop in for tasty, typical comfort food (think burgers, chili, sweet potato fries) and dine amongst vintage hunting books, tin lanterns and antler chandeliers. A thick wooden bar seperates the dining room and the "Deer Ole Opry," where local and visiting bands play almost every night of the week—last time we were there, world renowned fiddler Phil Salazar smoked through about 4 bows like it was no big deal. Outdoor fire pits make a comfy spot for a beer or a smoke—and you can still hear the music from inside.
