The Quarterdeck Restaurant is a classic family style seafood restaurant operated and owned by the same family since 1978. "We're not fancy, we are family." We have a new view of the Pamlico Sound and an awesome new bar area. Offering a local selection of Surf and Turf. Some of our most popular items include the crab cakes, stuffed fish, crab bisque, fried chicken and homemade pies. Something for everyone's belly and budget. Come out and enjoy!
