Great atmosphere and menu. Nacho Salad was Great! Live music that doesn't blow you out of the room but adds to your meal.

We stopped in at Big Deck on Sunday, I had their mushroom swiss burger which was great(they grind their own brisket and short rib for their burgers). My wife had the shrimp basket which she loved. The cool thing is that she likes her shrimp lightly breaded so the cook (Jeff) breaded her shrimp then brought it to are table... More

First place we ate in Cedar Key and was very disappointed. My husband only ate half of his cheese burger, and the pulled bbq chicken sandwich was served open-faced and definitely could not be eaten like a sandwich -- had to sift through the sauce to find the chicken -- did not like at all, and definitely did not like...

We were allowed to bring our dog onto the outdoor deck and the staff went to great lengths to make him comfortable. We each had a fried seafood combo which included oysters, clams and fish. It's seldom to find a restaurant that can get fried oysters perfect but the Big Deck hit a home rune with them. We are looking... More

It was a Monday and there were hardly any restaurants open in Cedar Key. It appeared Big Deck Raw Bar was open so we ventured in. No one was in the restaurant but the bar had a few people, so I asked the employee, "Are you open?" She replied, " No, these people live here." That's when we should have... More

A large group of us stopped to have a Christmas Eve dinner after doing the island tour. It was quite crowed but was seated quickly and food was served promptly. I had the shrimp dinner with curly fries and slaw. Everything was great but did not care for the slaw at all. I ate my husbands potato salad which was... More

Was impressed with the staff on a night most people would rather be off. They were very freindly and fast with our food which I can say was great. Hamburger, grouper, oysters, shrimp was great and the clam chowder was better than Tony's. Great place

Our server was so nice and we loved the outdoor options. We just had a couple of dozen clams which were small, but tasty. Server was friendly and efficient but not bothersome. They had live music by JT or is it TJ? Other than his x-rated attempt at jokes, his music was fantastic. I guess with his poor choices in... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and love the cozy atmosphere...just a deck bar and pet friendly too! Never ate anything I didn't like here. The crab cakes are awesome. My hubby loves the grouper sandwich. Servers are really friendly. Lots of beer on draft and bottles. Cute place near the marina!😋
