Deer's Bar gets a fresh start
Joel Powell has always wanted to own a bar and restaurant, so when he discovered the abandoned Deer's Bar and Grill in Deer Park, he jumped on the chance to own it.
Powell, along with his wife and parents, purchased the building on June 13 and immediately went to work remodeling the space.
"Oh it was bad," Powell said. "Fifty years of cigarette smoke on top of fried food... It was rough."
