“Trashy all the way!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Our hotel concierge recommended this place to us - maybe he gets kick backs from them, who knows? We went there this past Saturday night and they were doing horrible, white-trash karaoke at 7 pm -- come on, folks! Save that crap for the late night drunks, please. We sat out on the deck so we could look at the ocean, only to be plagued by cigarette smoke the entire time we were seated there even though we found a corner table with no one smoking directly beside us. ON TOP of that, we had one of their trashy patrons harass us MULTIPLE times because she asked if we cared if she smoked in the corner of the deck beside our table. When we told her we minded and suggested that she smoke on the other side of the deck, where other people were smoking, she cursed at us and said she was outside so she'd do what she wanted. She then returned to our table multiple times to harass us. Even after I told our waiter about her the first time, he did nothing as he witnessed her harassing us the second time.

Bottom line, if you don't like cigarette smoke and want to enjoy a nice drink on the beach -- don't do it. The staff was useless when it came to ensuring we had a good time and the trashy woman ruined my night.

“BEST BANDS EVER”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Love this place. Our waiter was amazing!! The cover band was amazing. There is a deck in the back and they leave the door open, so the smoke from the smokers blow in if you are near the door. The deck and beach is beautiful at night.

We did not eat here but will be back to try it.

“LOVE THIS PLACE”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Been going here for 18 years. Couldn't ask for a better place to sit, relax, and have a cold beer looking out at the ocean. Yes, it can be loud & the smoke does blow back inside from the ocean breeze but. The ENTIRE ocean side is wide open. You CAN NOT smoke inside the bar area. The waitstaff is AWESOME! Doris, Michelle (who is now a bartender), Messy Jesse, "Bruce"(who is a girl) & the rest ROCK!

“If you like smoky and nosy...”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

This is the place for you. The staff was nice, but the smoking and the noise was insane. If you like that kind of stuff, go. The food was good.

“Okay.”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I were extremely excited to checkout Ocean Deck because of the location and atmosphere. We absolutely loved the location, we dined in the upper level with beautiful views! Unfortunately, the food was not great. We ordered the pepper poppers for appetizers which were fine, they tasted like the jalapeño poppers that you would get at a movie theatre. Good, fresh, but...not exactly what I wanted. My husband got the fish and chips which was very stale and flavorless. I got the swordfish. That was actual pretty good, the broccoli was GREAT! So, in summation, the broccoli was the best part of all of our food : / maybe we just went on a bad day, hope you have a better experience!
