A group of us went to this place on our first night in town - after late flights and a long drive. We were tired. But good food will wake you up every time and this place brings it. Although I normally go for the fresh fish served very simply, I went for fried oysters and loved them. Cooked at the perfect temp, they weren't at all greasy and retained some of the oyster texture I love. The wine selection was great. Others enjoyed reasonably priced lobster and other great dishes. The place has a nice ambiance.

Kure_beach, Thanks for your kind review, we always hope to make our guests rave about dinner when they leave! Thanks for letting us know how we are doing. Serving up a killer glass of wine and a fabulous cut of prime rib is a goal met for us. We hope when you reach our neck of the woods again, that you come back in so we can wine and dine you to your heart (and stomach's!) content! Happy New Year, Victoria B., General Manager

We dined here on a Friday night during the local Christmas Parade. The restaurant is in an old church and has a nice feel. Not overly loud, but not too quiet. I had the grouper with crab which was delicious. The grouper chowder was also very tasty. This is a bit more upscale than most beach restaurants. My only request to the management: get real glasses. The food, prices and general ambiance of the place deserves better than faded out plastic Pepsi glasses. I will eat here again.

nctraveller58, Thanks so much for choosing us to have dinner! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed all of your food! The grouper special is such a huge fan favorite here. Also, thank you very much for mentioning the water glasses. Changing from the plastic pepsi tumblers to glasses is something that we've given a lot of thought. Currently, we have a logistical problem with storing the amount of glasses that we would need to serve the restaurant as they cannot be stored the same way our plastic ones are. As soon as we solve that problem of enough storage room, we hope to make the switch, however I do not know exactly when that will be. Thank you again for your feedback, we take advantage of it to learn what we can do better. Have a fantastic New Year! Victoria B., General Manager

We have been visiting Carolina Beach for many years now and the Deck House is always a high lite of our visit. The food is always good and the service is great. I have never had a bad experience at the Deck House. If you are going to Carolina Beach, NC you must check out this restaurant.

Dear coastal4me, We LOVE earning guests who return year after year with their friends and families. It is the ultimate compliment to be the highlight of someones visit to Carolina Beach with all the great choices there are here on the beach. If we (management and staff) have not had the chance to meet you and your friends/family personally, I would love to! Thank you for letting the public know that we have been a staple of your visits to Carolina Beach, it's something we would like to be for everyone that comes through our doors.

Dear Jeff J, Thanks for letting us know about the flounder. We do get ours fresh from a seafood company right down the street, and we try to keep our quality the best. What you described does not sound like the quality that we want to serve, I am so sorry about that. When our flounder is right, it's great! Also, the fried shrimp should be crisp and perfectly breaded, but not bread-y as you described. Again, I apologize. I know that we only get one chance to give a first impression, but should you give us a second chance to serve you, I would personally like to make sure you get served the amazing flounder and shrimp that I know we are capable of. Feel free to ask for me by name, we would appreciate the chance to get it right for you. Thank you again, Happy New Year, Victoria B., General Manager
