The food was average deep fried fare, but it was a fun evening. A little pricey for the quality of food and drink. We had the blackened grouper and fried oysters. The grouper was overlooked and the oysters fat with coating. Dinner came with fries and slaw. The plastic cups of beer were $4.50. The one man band played some... More

Stopped here because it was dog friendly. Ordered clams. They were tough and dry. Deck crowded. Band too loud to here friends talk.

Does not look great from the outside but we were sweaty and this place has outside seating. What a great surprise. The cab cake sandwich was very good and I had the shrimp po boy. I expected it on a hot dog bun but it was on a round bun. The service was friendly and quick. The beer was cold!

Located on the wharf facing the Gulf of Mexico, Big Deck is what is name imply, an open but covered deck. A place to chill with good foods, good friends at a friendly price. Pet-Friendly. Music on week-ends. A favorite for locals. Tried the Barbecue sandwich. It had a citrus flavor, a twist from all of the other BBQ sandwiches... More

Food was ok and no complaints. Service was just ok and waitress presented bill and after paying, brought my friend another bill for extra drinks we never ordered. Brought it to the managers attention but they refused to correct their error. Won't go back.

It's an outside bar food type place. My big objection to this place is the cats roaming freely among the diners. I for one do not like cats and have no desire to be constantly on the look out for one to come to my table! The owner doesn't seem to mind it though.

Shrimp wrap. This place is awesome. Don't let the looks of it fool you. It ain't pretty but the food, drinks, and service are remarkable. The only drawback might be that it's pet-friendly (REALLY friendly), so you might encounter a dog or four wandering around while you eat.

We had dinner here last week. Lots of fans turning overhead to keep the breeze blowing (it was hot ! !). And thankfully the drinks were cold. Had local shrimp - Really, really good. Singer playing was entertaining, played songs that we knew. Definitely recommend this place ! !

Had the best bloody mary here. Servers are so friendly. Oysters so fresh. Great view. There is music on the evening. Not a fancy place. Quaint and very clean

really like the big deck they used to have good entertainment but that kind of went by the wayside. when we would come for our three day stay we always go down to see if entertainment is any good not so in a long time so we go across the street or back to the room and our drinks on... More
