It wasn't on the menu, but customers at a western New York restaurant got an up-close look at some venison on the hoof.

Management and customers say a deer crashed through a window at an Applebee's in Batavia just after 7 p.m. Sunday.

Customer Bruce Beck, who was visiting from Wisconsin, says the deer nearly slid into the booth next to his before veering away and running through the restaurant.

Witnesses say people were able to herd the deer out the front door.

No one was hurt.
