“A good place to stop for a meal or just a drink”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We called in for a drink and found the service excellent. We did not eat as the restaurant was closed for a staff break but we enjoyed the visit. Service was good and very pleasant. The venue is great close to the sea and in very good modern building with extensive outdoor seating area.

“Above average pub food”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

We had dinner here on a very busy summer Saturday evening and it was clear booking was a good idea. The place was heaving but the service was attentive and efficient. Too efficient even, the main came too quickly after the entree. The food featured excellent quality ingredients and it was well presented. Excellent chips according to my husband. The seafood in my pasta dish was fresh and succulent. Yummy local mussels. We didn't have room for dessert alas.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Having read some very negative reviews of The Deck after booking , we were a bit apprehensive. This soon passed as our food arrived promptly, was excellent ( the duck especially) and the staff were attentive.

“So Disappointing!”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

We were visiting relatives living on Cape Schanck and made reservations a week ahead of time. When we arrived we found our table was next to the door and toilets. The smell from the toilet was annoying and the door opening and closing was cold. We asked for alternate seating and the manager declined the request. There were many empty tables that remained empty the entire time we were there. The meal was very overpriced and not that good. Go someplace else!

“Christmas Eve Dinner…”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

When we arrived at Flinders on Christmas Eve, we decided to stay overnight in local
accommodation. The deck at the Flinders Hotel was open for dinner with an excellent menu!

The red house wine was superb!

The service was very good too.
