We visited the Ocean Deck one sunny lunch time and had a table outside on the terrace, so lovely to see you can take well behaved dogs here which we did. I ordered a vegetarian meal with new potatoes, which I cannot fault, but my husband ordered half a crab with salad and potatoes, there was hardly any meat on the crab at all and was very disappointed that there was not a claw, which is the best part of the lobster. Surely if you are having half a crab you would expect a claw as well? Overall, I would be back as the staff were courteous and there is a good selection of vegetarian meals on the menu. Great views overlooking the sea.

Visited for an evening drink whilst on holiday in Sandown. There was a good choice of drinks and we were served promptly. Sat on the outside decking area and had the lovely sea views. We didn't eat here but the food looked good and people there who were eating seemed to be enjoying their food.

We were recommended The Ocean Deck by friends. We sat outside enjoying the view of the beach. We endured in a few bottles of Prosseco, a Seafood Platter, Linguini & Scampi. I enjoyed my Linguini but my friends didn't rate the Platter at all, they thought it was over priced for the content. The service was poor, empty plates, bottles and glasses must have stayed on our table throughout the duration we were there. We had to keep getting cutlery inside at the bar each time we had a course which was a pain when surely waiters could have bought with our meals. For the first time I refused to 'tip' as the service wasn't worthy.

I took my dad here for fathers day but on the saturday as I knew sundays are hard to get in places. We chose here as its under new owners and he was the chef that did my wedding breakfast, so I know how yummy his food is, he did not disappoint. I had the homemade fish finger bap, it was amazing, fresh white fish coated in homemade yummy batter every bite was like a party in my mouth. My dad had the same and was extremely satisfied. My mum has the homemade whitebait, she said its the best shes ever tasted. Lovely friendly service. Would definately go there again and recommend to a friends.
