Can you believe outstanding margaritas in a plastic cup? They sure do! Just soothes the soul to sip by the water and munch down baskets of shrimp and fries. Can just about hear Jimmy Buffet playing the background.

Keep walking, this restaurant is terrible. Don’t eat the clam chowder. It tastes like they used swamp water to make it. And the curley fries are not curley. They should be called crumb fries. Keep walking.....

Yes the Big Deck is pet friendly as long as your pet is well behaved and on a leash. Keep in mind that there are cats on Dock Street so please keep your pet leashed for everyone's safety.
