“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Food was below average; we expected great seafood; we can get better seafood in Western North Carolina. Service was marginal. Used to be a terrific place for great food.

“What a waste of time and money!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

My husband and I stopped by the Marina Deck on a NFL football Sunday. We decided before hand that we would sit on the new upper deck so we could take in the scenic water view. When we went in, I asked if there were any football drink or food specials and she handed me that menu. I said that we wanted to sit upstairs and then was told that specials were only available in the downstairs inside bar area. We choose to not do the specials and proceed upstairs. Once we got seated, the waitress took our drink order of two bud light cans. We then ordered nachos and asked that the salsa be on the side. She came back minutes later and said that would be an extra $1.00. Just put the salsa on the nachos I said. The nachos although small were pretty decent in taste. We ordered another round of drinks and got the check. Holy crap.....the bill was over $31.00. Each beer was $3.99 not including all of the crazy taxes that were not included....absolutely ridiculous! We're not there to pay for each stick of lumber it took to build that upstairs deck. Needless to say, we will never, never return! Get it together Marina Deck....there's way too many choices of bars and restaurants to choose from and no one wants to get ripped off. That would also explain why on a beautiful day that there were four people at the bar and down below at MR Ducks the place was PACKED!

“Great Food!!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

The Marina Deck is our daily stop for the happy hour bar specials which, in our opinion cant be beat!! They were undergoing a major renovation project during our visit to O.C. which didn't interfere with us at all, I have seen pictures of the completed project and cant wait to get back to check it out!!! See ya soon!!!

“Great view but didn't upgrade the food”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We went to the Marina Deck this past Friday and the view is nice as they built a rooftop bar (wild pony bar)overlooking the bay. The service was par, the food was below average at best. The crab dip barely had crab meat in it, my crab cake sandwich was okay, not great and if you spend the money to upgrade the roof, you need to improve the food as well.

“A solid "good"”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We were looking for Bahama Mama's, but since it had moved, we ended up at Marina Deck. While the atmosphere is a bit on the funky side, the service and food were decent overall, with the seafood on the good / very good side. I usually spend a bit of time researching the best places to go and this was a roll of the dice, but we ended up pleased with the results. Even though the starter muffins and salad were boring, the seafood entrees hit the mark and were totally satisfying. And yes, the harbor view is stunning, especially at sunset.

As a bonus, there is an awesome kids play area that is surprisingly large, clean and new.
