Best Blackened Fish dinner

Great place, nice people, nice atmosphere. I'm addicted to the blackened fish dinner. Your down-home, country family restaurant.

We visited the Quarterdeck with a group of friends. We were greeted promptly and seated in a special area set aside for us. The waitstaff was courteous and efficient. I ordered one of the nightly specials, all you can eat fried fish and my wife ordered the mixed green salad with blackened chicken. The fish was average and, of course,... More

The crew at Quarterdeck treats you so good. It's owned by local folks and it's good home cooking. We love the all you can eat fish on Fridays.

Quarterdeck has been a long favorite, Friday is all you can eat fish and Saturday is all you can eat crab legs. The seafood is breaded to perfection, not overloaded with breading so you can actually taste the seafood, what you wanted in the first place. It has a tendency to get a little noisy when it is crowded but... More

This is definitely a local spot. We are local, just a different city local and it can still feel as if all eyes are on you when you walk in if you aren't immediately recognized but with the love that is put into this food we can't stay away. The service is always friendly, like you are family, and the... More

Our go to place when in Umatilla/Eustis FL. Good fried fish, shrimp, and sided dishes. Our favorite is popcorn shrimp with onion straws. The seafood chowder is my father in law's favorite. Nice waitresses, attentive staff. This is a nice neighborhood fish restaurant. The baked fish was very good as well as the Friday night fried fish. Good hush puppies!

Stopped in for lunch today. Family members who'd been before raved about the chef salad, and two of us ordered it! Delicious, large and satisfying ! Another member of our party ordered an oyster Po Boy sandwich, which is served with thick fries. Also tasty! The other selection made in our group was a hamburger and fries. Enjoyed that too....

If you enjoy fried foods, this is the place for you! If you don't, you won't find much else! I ordered the smoked turkey sandwich and requested no bread but asked them to include some extra lettuce. Waitress stated it would come with fries; I said I did not want them. The extra lettuce was the leathery outside piece from... More

We eat at Quarterdeck regularly. We enjoy the friendliness that is shared by everyone as well as the "small town feel" and of course the excellent way the food is prepared! A must visit whether you are passing through or are local. The prices will not break the bank either which is an added plus. :)

Thank Kat B
