Fish served to my wife undercooked. Returned to kitchen. Returned cooked properly, but appeared they refried French fries in oil. My burger was listed as served with pimento cheese. Never saw any PC. Beverage glasses were empty for so long, I personally went to kitchen for refills.

I would highly recommend The Quarterdeck for your large group gathering. They went above and beyond to insure they could accommodate our group of 16 on a Saturday night. Rob, Alex, Louie and Beth all made special efforts to insure that our group had a good time. They had our table prepared on schedule, never rushed us and served the... More

The manager Rob and our waiter Sam made sure we had an awesome girlfriend evening with a beautiful view and personal attention ensuring fantastic drinks and delicious food with Sam's personal sauce for our calamari. Location is perfect but the food and attention is even better. Your group will have a great time here! We're coming back next time!

Amazing place and great service!!! Thanks for making us special pizzas and rolls! So delicious. The restaurant is on the harbor and the sunset was awesome. The upstairs with the glass windows was lovely.

Wife and I had a wonderful lunch after climbing the lighthouse the pea/hummus/guacamole and chips took the edge off our appetite but she had the Grilled chicken Poboy they were kind to substitute deep fried zucchini for the steak fries she's allergic to without asking once the waiter learned of the allergy. I enjoyed a sumptuous 1/2 lb burger grilled... More

Tried their "Duck Gumbo" it was really great, just spiced enough. My wife had blacken shrimp which see loved, I had the seafood basket. Mine was cooked to perfection without... More

We were her for lunch and had our golden retriever with us. We had lunch on the patio with a view of the marina. We had the seafood combo with the fried oysters and shrimp. The fish was flounder. Very good also recommended is the Jack Palmer, Jack Daniels with lemonade and ice tea.

I guess I expected a little better food since it was rather pricey. I had a salad that was honestly on the same level as a chain restaurant. I will say the service as top notch and of course, the view is beautiful. Maybe we will try again when in the area, but I would look to see if the... More
