Good for: Bar scene
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast
Description: We're best described by one of our many 5 Star Reviewers, J D "Real Florida" There is a reason The Dek has a loyal clientele. The thin crust pizza is great. The bartenders are friendly and competent. The patrons are working class. If you want beautiful, plastic people with too much make-up on and $700 blue jeans go somewhere else. If you want a fun time, with good music (I highly recommend Tequila Tom's acoustic guitar session almost every Sunday afternoon) come here. Dave J is correct it is not a place for kids. Well-behaved dogs are welcomed. :) It is a bar for adults, not politically correct cry babies who are easily offended by dirty jokes or tattoos.

“For what it is!!!!!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Great Great dive bar with excellent pizza. Go for a drink, but if you are really into cleanliness, stick with bottle beer and stay to people watch. It is a hoot! Pizza is great - I don't know how they do it, but they do.

“Dive in”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

there isn't much to the place. It's your neighborhood bar. You meet up with your friends and grab a cold beer. 25 cent daily food deals and always a large cheese pizza and a pitcher of cold beer 13.00. People call it a dive but its a no frills neighborhood bar I liked it.

“The pizza was excellent, but the music was LOUD.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The Dek was recommended to us by someone who said they served great pizza at a reasonable price. They warned us that the place was noisy, but we went for lunch, sat at a table outside, and thought it was pretty nice until the music started. I really felt my age, because...well, because I had no idea what was playing, but I knew it was LOUD. Really loud. I think next time we'll call in our order, and make it a carry out.

Rick, Thanks for reviewing us. We often have live music and it can get loud, but we do have a variety of genres, so hopefully you can come back for our awesome pizza and give it another go. Again, thanks for the great review!

Take care,
Betty Davis

“Total dive but fun...”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Its truly a total dive but if you like to people watch this is one of the best places to do it. Just sit back and you are bound to find someone to keep you entertained. Lets go back to the total dive part. It is but that's ok as long as you know that going in and don't mind. The bartenders (which change a bit so just keep an open mind things may change) were pretty sleazy. You REALLY have to watch what they are charging you for. Don't run a tab! They are just nasty. Not all of them but there were a couple that I saw regularly that were less then desirable to deal with if you had a complaint. So go for the experience. Food was good for bar food, have some good deals, and did I mention people watching???

“Great 25¢ Daily Deals”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We have driven past many times, in our years here, passing it by for "judging a book for its cover. At the urging of other biker friends, we decided to give it a try. We are VERY glad that we did!

If you can get past that this is not a fancy restaurant and is just a hole-in-the-wall watering hole bar, then you will love the food! The menu shows daily specials for 25¢ and they all look promising. When we told our waitress we had never been there, before, she jumped right in to describing all the great things about it, as well as all the specials.

We had the daily wing special and were asked how many we wanted. That's not something a lot of places do. 10 wings were $2.50, as advertised, though the small dipping sauces are an additional quarter, as are the 4 tiny pieces of celery (about one stick...which I didn't ask for, since I don't like it, but my husband did, and we both got it and were charged for both). For the price, I wasn't going to make a big deal about a one quarter mistake so just shrugged it off.

The wings were not tiny and not as big as Gatorz in Punta Gorda but they were good-sized and we were very happy with them. We don't drink alcohol so ordered RC Cola, the only soda choice offered. Refills were free, which we did not expect. Another bonus.

It was over the lunch hour so was a little busy and loud but the outdoor setting offered a nice breeze in the shade and didn't create an assault to the ears with the noise. The only real downer was that we sat there for quite some time right next to the bar, and when two men came in about 6-7 minutes later, the waitress came right up to them, though she had not come anywhere near us. She then proceeded to laugh, tell stories, flirt and joke around with them about what they should order and how much they should eat while we just waited for her to finally get finish and take the order we had been waiting so long to place.
