Hard to find good off season & they delivered tonight. Grouper Chowder & French Onion soup appetizers. Soups were great. Sat at bar. Fresh bread would have been better warm. Ordered shrimp & grits with Caesar & house salad w/crumbly blue. Salads were solid. Shrimp & grits were great. More hearty than I've had anywhere (explains the price). Couldn't finish... More

I arrived at The Deck House with 2 friends and we were seated promptly. The food and service was excellent! I had a salad, crab legs and potatoes for my meal. I could not have asked for a better dinner.

We had a special & delicious seafood meal here. The broiled seafood platter, stuffed flounder & chowder were spectacular (though I'd recommend asking for the lobster sauce on the side b/c the flounder was basically drowning in sauce.) The server was capable and attentive. The drinks were great, and the wine list had some great options (and on Sunday night... More

Friendly courteous and prompt service. Perhaps as a result of the off season, some of the staff were not attired as usual. A few t-shirts and hairly legs.

We went for our son's birthday. The crab legs tasted like they had been frozen. Spongy with no taste. The butter to dip it in did not have any taste. My daughter did not eat her stuffed chicken or salad. We were seated by the kitchen and got to listen to the waiters talk behind the wall. One plus ,... More

The extensive menu, great portions and friendly waitress made this an exceptional experience. We chose two grouper entrees, one with capers and a tasty sauce and one stuffed with lobster and a creamy sauce. We would order both again. The restaurant has a seaside look about it and can be either casual or a little more dressy for an occasion... More

On a visit to Carolina Beach, we had our first visit to the Deck House. We had about a 30 minute wait for a table, which was not too bad. We waited in the bar area, however because it was such a busy night, the bar area was packed! I had the Filet Mignon and baked potato. The filet was... More

Deck House was such a neat place. The service was very good and the food was excellent. My husband enjoyed the broiled scallops that were cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the crap cakes and the house potatoes. If your looking for good seafood Deck House is the place. Enjoy!

Saturday night dinner at the Deck House... the place was packed. Bar sevice was a tad slow as we had a 45 minute wait for a table for 2. But it was a busy night and they did the best they could even though they appeared to be short staffed in the bar. But almost 45 minutes on the nose... More
