For shellfish lovers, this is definitely a destination. Impressive selection of FRESH oysters, mussels, and often crayfish. As well as meat dishes. Some served up fish house style, some with a creative Thai flair. All delicious. We shared a half dozen oysters on the half shell (fresh, cold and delicious), followed by a crayfish boil (included crayfish, corn and sausage).... More

This place is amazing! The variety of food from raw oysters to baked oysters to flavorful food with an Asian flair is always consistent. The Crying Tiger salad with sticky rice is my favorite and the Tom Yum soup is yummy!

Co-workers had been raving about this place so I decided to try it and wasn't disappointing. This was one of the best seafood meals I've had in Austin. This time, I had a lunch special which was under $10, came with some of the best Gumbo I ever had and some amazing hush puppies. Now I know why lunch gets... More

With all of the great BBQ and Tex-Mex in central TX, there is usually one lacking ingredient, and that's seafood. However, Deckhand Oyster Bar fills that void with a friendly, casual, reasonably priced seafood restaurant. I can't say enough about the Deckhand Oysters (broiled oysters on the half shell brushed with a white wine infused garlic butter, then topped with... More

My daughter and I tried Deckhand for the first time last week even though we have both lived in Round Rock for many years. We had always decided not to go because it had a huge Oyster Bar sign on the side and neither one of us like oysters. Silly, I guess, since they surely had other seafood. I saw... More

Stopped here one day out of curiosity and were delighted. The Cajun food is well seasoned and the portions are large (had to take half home). Fresh oysters, great gumbo, etoufee (sp?) and lots of appetizers for the kids. Place packs out at all hours and all items available to go.

I had heard from numerous friends that if I ever wanted fresh oysters, that this was the place to go. The only problem I have is; why I never listened to them and waited so damn long to actually go to this place??!! The food was amazing! I ordered a full dozen oysters and they came to my table very... More

I mean that. You get your your choice of oysters plus a large soup - this being my brother. He loves to teach every one how to open the oysters. To which our mum is perfectly thrilled . Once you get past the oysters you can find a joyful of additional choices. As picky as I am I stick to... More

Deckhand was recommended to us by a local couple. It was 10 minutes from the hotel and worth the drive. We had to wait about 20 minutes and so glad we did. It is owned by Korean couple and it is outstanding. There is plenty of food when your plate comes. This a must

Stopped by before the lunch rush. Lunch plates are huge portions of fried seafood with a bowl of fish gumbo. Kudos to the gumbo and the catfish a little bland. Little disconcerting to see the wait staff eating at the bar and then serving customers between bites. Good value if you fight through the rest.

Thank Keith D
