Late on a Sunday afternoon and the food and service was great. I had the stuffed fish and veggies. Don't know what the sauce was, but it was incredible. Hubby had the scallops and he said they were okay but borderline overcooked. Another guest had the recommended fish tacos and enjoyed them. Beer was cold! The nautical theme inside is... More

Family owned and operated since 1992. The meaning of the restaurant's name "is that on a ship, a quarterdeck just so happens to be where pirates would celebrate and hold important meetings" The service was very good and so was the food. I had the broiled scallops and my wife the popcorn shrimp. These items come with hush puppies and... More

Large menu. The owner was sitting beside us and very friendly. Service excellent. We all had fish tacos. Mine were fried, husband loved his blackened, and friend enjoyed hers grilled. Sweet potato fries and onion rings delcious. We will return!

Saw the reviews for this restaurant on Facebook and wanted to give it a try! Went for the early bird dinner and wasn't let down. The fish fry was delicious! It was pollock, lightly breaded and fried, so you could still taste the fish! Their coleslaw was good as well. The fries were fries, not bad, but fries. My dinner... More

The Quarterdeck offers another excellent alternative to the Oyster Troff for seafood in this landlocked location in Florida. I've eaten here several time and never been disappointed.

We were among a group of 30 or so who arrived at the same to have a late lunch. Our food came surprisingly quick considering the strain we must have put on the kitchen. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals, most opting for the sandwich special. My clam chowder was very good and piping hot. Wait staff was attentive, providing... More

This is a small, privately owned seafood restaurant in the small town of Umatilla. Food was great, service was fast and friendly. I had the crab legs which is my favorite.

Great place of peel and eat, catfish, fish sandwich. Service is above average. Ice cold beer too. Some owners and location for like 30 years-gotta be doing something right!

The waitresses did an excellent job of taking care of our group of 31 but the food was not outstanding. Some had undercooked food while others didn't get all of their orders at once. Prices are reasonable but it is not someplace I would rush back. My clams were greasy.
