The unexpected incident left everyone in shock, prompting them to quickly rise and huddle in the corner.
“It’s sliding on the glass, it can’t get its footing. It’s frantically trying to get up,” Alicia said.
“I couldn’t comprehend it was actually a deer. We’re in the middle of town, across the street from the University of Tennessee Martin. It’s like, what in the world?”
The restaurant, known for its milkshakes, donut burgers and mac n cheese by locals, remained open the next day.
“Hey folks, we are open today despite the crazy circumstances of last night. Above all else, we are very thankful that Ruby is ok as well as her family,” the restaurant wrote on social media the day after the incident.
“I guess you can say things got a little ‘’Buck Wild” at the Grind last night!”
