We went in for a couples dinner and drinks. This was a great choice, the dinner was perfect and the drinks were perfect. The service is always great and quick. This is one of our favorite places on the island. Will be back often

First time visit to DECK HOUSE during the winter. The service, alcohol, and menu continue to be outstanding, but the quality for fish is down a bit from the normal. Nevertheless, this is still one of the best places on the Island to eat.

This is our fallback dinner place in Carolina Beach. Excellent menu with a wide variety of options. You’ll enjoy the wait for a table in their nice bar area where they handle the crowds well via speedy service.

A restaurant in an old church that has a nautical theme indoors. Each menu item was very creative. We ordered the stir fry shrimp and scallops. The portion was large but the vegetables were swimming in excess broth. Although tasty, the presentation was lacking. The...More
