Pleasant enough place but as other reviews point out the place is dirty. We thought the waitress was very friendly and have no complaints about the service. I had the oyster po boy and my wife had the grouper sandwich. The po boy came with a very small container of potato salad that was good but not much more than... More

Share yummy low cost foods with the locals and tourists. No dress up required. Friendly staff and a view to the lagoon leading to the Gulf.

It depends on what you are looking for. Don't order wine. That is all. Stella Artois is available. Lively "dive" with great views.... If the windows weren't so dirty.

Thank you for the review. In our defense, the windows were damaged from the 3ft of water from hurricane Hermine. They are scratched up and will be replaced in the future. (They were new this year) More

There was a couple guys playing guitar and singing and this place is nearly all open air. They have fixed right back up after the hurricane like they didn't miss a beat. Excellent seafood!

I had the half rack of ribs, 6 large ribs (spare ribs with rib ends). I don't think they were "smoked", I just know they were VERY tender, juicy and tasted great. Came with curly fries and slaw for $9.99. With two beers my bill was under $20. As to the Big Deck itself, I can only say that I... More

This is a beatiful facility. It was also out of a couple things that we ordered. Maybe due to recent hurricanes. Has lots of potential, and we would give it another try

Went here while we were in Cedar Key escaping Hurricane Matthew. Decent, live music. Food was mediocre at best. I got a steak sandwich that looked more like greyish meat chunks. My son got the ribs and did not like them. My other son raved about the hot wings. 4 out of 5 of us dissatisfied with the food. Cats... More

We had been here years ago and I had always recalled the excellent peel & eat shrimp. Three of us went for lunch, the shrimp was as wonderful as I recalled, would have preferred my beer in a glass or bottle but no biggie, guess it fit in with the plastic forks and paper baskets. My friend had the fried... More

The food was good but somewhat overcooked. The service was great but it was so loud you couldn't hear the person next to you talking. The music was good.
