They charge more when you get the bill than what is priced on the menu. Food was not the greatest but when you are hungry it will be ok.

apparently there are problems with the restaurant killing cats on their property. I support TNR of feral cats and people don't understand the Vaccuum Effect. The cats keep the mice away and that would be a good thing since its a sanitary issue. Cats would...More

Even though we had a long wait due to not having enough wait staff. It was well worth the wait. Our waiter was nice and friendly.

Due to renovations from Hurricane Matthew we will be reopening Thursday June 22nd at 5pm with a new view!

A Family Style Seafood and Steak Restaurant that originated as The Old Lighthouse Restaurant in 1963, and moved to the current location as the Quarterdeck Restaurant in 1978, the Quarterdeck has been proudly serving the local island community for over 50 years. This locally owned, casual dining, family-oriented restaurant has been completely renovated after the effects of Hurricane Matthew by the family, and although it is the same great cuisine everyone is accustomed to, the whole building has a new fresh feel. Nostalgia meets new views. The building now boasts a beautiful sound side view, and the business now takes reservations; the Quarterdeck still specializes in seafood (try the crab cakes and stuffed flounder), char-grilled steaks, and homemade desserts. You may also enjoy a refreshment at their full-service bar, or have your lunch outside in the new outdoor seating areas. The Quarterdeck is open every day but Wednesday for dinner, 5:00-9:00 in season. For off season events or bookings please call.
