A long time restaurant in the Oak Park Plaza Shopping Center ( off Hwy 101) at Oak Park Blvd and Branch Street. The locals know the secret of good seafood and a wide menu selection at the Quarterdeck. We were there on Tuesday and sat at the bar, enjoying a drink and eating 50 cent fish tacos... wonderful and tasty.... More

We were staying at the Hampton Inn in Arroyo Grande and walked a block over to Quarterdeck for dinner. We weren't real hungry so we shared a regular size fish and chips which is five pieces and we each had a cup of Clam Chowder. The food was great and sharing was the wise choice tonight. I'd definitely eat there... More

This place has been around a while the service is very good but the menus and decor are getting a little tired. Prices are very reasonable

The food is ok, but the restaurant is not very attractive with lots of weird decorations. The service is ok, but more of a Denny's seafood restaurant. I would prefer taking a short drive to Morro Bay for fresh seafood.

(Originally posted on IHG Dining Rewards) The Sea Bass was a good size, which I guess it ought to have been for the price, and my wife's lobster, krab, etc. sandwich was very full and she enjoyed it. The steamed vegetables were tasty, too. Good light beer and enough on tap to choose from. As we were a late lunch... More

Everything on the menu if battered and fried. My scallops were so bad, I had to send them back. These were the worst scallops I ever had.The fish & chips were so, so. Won't go back there again.

We got fast friendly service. We ordered an appetizer and clam chowder to share for mine and my wife's dinner. The kids ordered french fries and corn dogs. The food came really fast and was great, kids enjoy it and ate everything the service was great.

Thank Richard B
