“Varied menu and nice views on the outside deck”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We were a party of six celebrating a birthday; everyone had a little something different which included lobster, steak, salmon, caesar salads, escargot and spinach dip appetizers and Asian spare ribs. All meals were presented nicely by a very pleasant staff and follow up service was excellent. Overall a bit pricey but the outside deck made up for it.

“The Deck Restaurant”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The atmosphere outside is a wonderful spot. The seafood corn chowder was great. However the ceaser salad was terrible. Just lettuce and croutons that were way to hard to eat or cut through. Our waitress appeared to be new and not on top of her game. The drinks took what seemed forever to get to us. My friend enjoyed their meal. They felt service was very slow overall. It was Memorial Day weekend. They weren't too busy due to the rain. I would go again.

Reviewed 26 May 2014

Very friendly and attentive waitstaff. Food is always good. Friendly atmosphere. Prices on the high side but the view is great. Would recommend this deck over all others in the area. The staff makes the difference.
