I ordered fried oysters and they were in the small side. They came with a lot of fries, otherwise the basket would have looked woefully empty. They had a great taste, but were a little overpriced.

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.
