There were a few things that we tried to order that they did not have but we found other things to order instead. The food and service is good. Overall it is a nice quiet family place.

I've been coming out to Frisco for many years now, and the Quarterdeck feels like home. Went there last night in hopes of Spanish mackeral and did not leave disappointed. 'Tis the season for that fish of the day. Had it stuffed with crab, which following the crab bisque was heaven in itself. The hushpuppies are out of this world.... More

We ordered fried oyster baskets for lunch. The oysters were plump and flavorful. Coconut and key lime pies for dessert were excellent!

Food was good. However when we went to order we were told that there was no sweet tea, no baked potatoes and no ginger ale, all of which was on the menu. Waiter seemed very confused and unsure.

The service here was top notch. We were seated quickly and received our drinks and appetizer quickly. We were a bit early for the dinner rush so there was no wait and only a few tables were taken. The food was great! My husband had some sort of seafood platter that he could not have scarfed down any faster! He... More

Appetizers: did fried calamari and crab balls. Both perfectly prepared, these folks know seafood again. Calamari, so easy to mess up, done perfectly with a very nice lightly chunky marinara sauce. Crab balls, a bunch of 'em fried up by God Himself! Yup, that good!! Main courses: Broiled scallops, crab stuffed flounder, and broiled lump crabmeat in butter, A deft... More

Food was great and service was wonderful. Have a gluten sensitivity and I wanted some grab stuffed mushrooms, so they fixed me some without the bread crumbs and added some extra crab. DELICIOUS.

I try to have dinner here at least one night when I go to Frisco. I love the friendly staff and the food and prices are good. I highly recommend the scallops or Shrimp. On my last visit I had the special with crabs cooked 3 ways. Lump, soft shell crab and a crab cake. I enjoyed all of it,... More

The Quarterdeck Restaurant was established in 1978. It began as the Old Lighthouse Restaurant in 1965 by my Great Aunt and Uncle, Gina and Russ Ochs. The legacy continues today serving some of the finest local seafood fried, broiled, or steamed to perfection. The Quarterdeck also offers a wide variety for the land lubber, including a salad bar, fried chicken, burgers, and homemade pies. Please join us!
