Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars stating "Good Deal is a typically fine record from the Three Sounds, who were beginning to hit their stride when this session was recorded in May 1959. Like most of their records, it's laidback — even when the group works a swinging tempo, there's a sense of ease that keeps the mood friendly, relaxed and mellow".[2]
