“Overpriced”
Review of The Upper Deck

The Upper Deck
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 3, 2014

very good--the view from the deck
good--the service which was prompt and attentive
mediocre--the food. The burger, ordered medium, was closer to rare; the bun fell apart from sogginess, and the cole slaw was tasteless. The dill pickle was okay.
terrible--the price, while not outrageous, was certainly high for the quality of the cuisine.

As long time Southwest Harbor seasonal residents, we have seen many different concepts in this restaurant space. We waited until late in the season to give the Upper Deck a try and we were very impressed. We chose dishes that we would expect a restaurant like this to serve well, fried scallops and clams and were very very happy we did. The scallops in particular were cooked perfectly, just on the edge of being cooked through but not sacrificing any of the juiciness of the scallop. Every new restaurant needs a few months to shake it out and get it right, and it looks as though the Upper Deck is on the right track. Congratulations to the new team!

It must be our luck or lack of with the service during this vacation. This is the second one in a row that we had to wait forever for service. On the positive side, the food was fresh and prepared with a note of sophistication. The patio has an amazing view of Southwest Harbor.

Living on MDI we have tried every restaurant. Restaurants change ownership annually so its always a gamble. I had a great vegetarian taco salad.Others in the party had sirloin burger and a chicken dish which was quite good. It is a rare day on MDI when you can sit outdoors, have a great view and good food-usually one or two of these is missing! Prices are fair for MDI.

Service, food ,cleanliness and hygiene vary daily at all restaurants on MDI- managers can't seem to operate consistently day to day with the cooking,serving and cleaning staffs.

Plan to cook your own dinners when visiting MDI.

Another beautiful sunny day in Maine. Stopped in for lunch at the Upper Deck and what a view. The portions of the food was great and tasty too. Check it out very good place for lunch fresh seafood right off the boat.
