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.

The place is clean inside. Menu is interesting but food tasted like all commercial frozen then popped in either an oven or fryer to be served. Can mark off my list of places to return too.

We love everything about the Quarterdeck. The staff are efficient and friendly and the food is terrific. I enjoy the blackened fish; scallops broiled or fried; shrimp either peel and eat or fried and cannot forget the all you can east crab legs on Saturday nights! My husband enjoys the fish fry. A down to earth reasonably priced restaurant.

We arrived for lunch and were seated immediately by the friendly staff. The menu was quite extensive, but I ordered their famous fish (swai) sandwich which came with steak fries. The sandwich contained fresh tomato, onion, lettuce and a huge fish portion. It was delicious. The atmosphere was friendly and casual with nautical décor.

My wife and I went here about 5 years ago and we weren't really that impressed. Seeing all the cars parked there during the many times we passed, we decided to give it another try. I know the locals are going to be upset with this review. The wait staff is nice. But, our waitress had a problem listening. I... More
