We both had a 3 course meal although shared the first which was Cullen Skink soup as it's a hearty meal by itself. If you are a visitor and wonders what Cullen slink is then you are in for a treat. It's a thick fish, potato, leek and cream soup 😋. The steaks are very tasty and well cooked. Plenty... More

Nice food although over priced in my opinion. Service was ok but could be more attentive. Decoration was badly dated, felt like I had walked on to the set of a 1980s sitcom. Would go back if the pricing policy was reconsidered.

To the Upper Deck in Scrabster for family supper. Smoked mussels and bacon strongly recommended ( not subtle, but delicious), rare fillet steak perfect. Perfectly drinkable Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon for £17.00 a bottle, lovely views over the ( fairly industrial) harbour as the evening faded, and very pleasant and helpful staff. Minor downside ( as someone with IBS and no... More

For a long time this restaurant has been well known for its steaks but now the menu has been expanded to include a wider range of dishes. Good food and good service - what more is there to say.

Back for my third visit to The Upper Deck. Friendly staff, pretty good and quick service, a decent selection on the menu and the food is nice. Between the 3 of us we all had different starters and main courses: prawn cocktail, cullen skink and smoked mussels. All were scoffed, however I would say the cullen skink was a bit... More

On a cold winter's night... sitting looking out to the twinkling lights over a still harbour, what more could a girl ask for...?? A fabulous meal served in comfortable surroundings by a great team of staff. My party of four all ordered steaks of differing types, weights and cooking preferences and, as suggested to us by friends, we experienced the... More

It had been a while since I had occassion to eat in the Upper Deck, however, the quality has not diminished in those years. I had the Cullen Skink which was thick, creamy and had lumps of tattie and fish in it. For the main course, I initially thought the chef had skimped on the chips, however, by the time... More
