I hate having to write negative reviews but facts are facts. This BDRB is strange to say the least. It is basically an open air bunch of table and chairs not much else. At first I saw the menu I thought hmmm crab cakes haven't had them in awhile. But Noooo real crab in the cakes here, in a fishing... More

Liked the outdoor seating, Next a kin band, waitresses were very attentive to your needs. Always a friendly atmosphere. Only complaint was to maybe have wet naps for cleaning hands after peeling shrimp. lol...but there is a sink in the bathroom for that.

Great food, COLD BEER, and music in a relaxed atmosphere. Outside on the deck! It's almost Cheer's on the water! If your in Cedar Key, this is a must see place!

Located on Dock St the Big Deck is very casual lunch and dinner location that is open air with final windows they lower when it is raining. I had the grouper fingers that were very fresh and perfectly cooked. My wife had the clams that she said were also very fresh and perfectly cooked. The big deck is a busy... More

This is an average restaurant on Dock Street with the typical tourist trap fare. Prices are reasonable but I found the drinks to be lacking.

Stroll along Dock Street, soak up the sun and salty air and pop into Big Deck for a delicious and casual lunch or dinner. Have drinks with friends watching boats launch and pelicans swoop with live music complimenting an open air immersion experience of Cedar Key island life. Don't forget the steamed clams too.

We ordered two draft beers & an order of 2 dozen steamed clams. The clams were good but EXTREMELY SANDY! There weren't many people in the restaurant & they were already served. It took some time for our order of steamed clams to come out. We were gonna order more but thought the wait would be far too long so... More

Went with friends who just moved to Cedar Key. I suggested the fried grouper fingers and french fries. Three of us had the fried grouper and fries. The grouper was fried up to perfection and the fries extra delicious this visit. My husband decided to try the crab cakes for the first time and found them to be good and... More

We got our meal to go, but it was good and large. I would eat there again. Seating is outdoors, so fall season makes it a good choice.
