Beautiful View, but weird menu
First of all, thank God The Deck changed ownership sometime around May 2013 because the service is WAY better now. However, what's up with the new (and not so improved) menu?? There are only 6 entrees on the menu and about the same number of appetizers. If you don't like seafood you're sheet out of luck because the only entrees that are non-seafood are Mary's Fried Chicken and Pulled Pork Sandwich. Weird. On the plus side, The Deck has an amazing view of Laguna Beach. Where else can you sit and have a meal with a front row seat to surfers surfing just a few yards away while watching a spectacular Calif sunset at the same time...it's awesome!! Appetizers range from $8 - $20, entrees range from $15 - $25 and cocktails are about $12ea.

Overall a nice place, however
Overall a nice place, however the cost of a drink is horrendous. Over 10.00 for a mediocre drink is where they get you.

Casual deck dining
Limited menu but unlimited beach and sunset view. OK for those dressed up or down. Perfect beach dining.

Need to get a kitchen in asap
Need to get a kitchen in asap or get some better food to nibble on. Was very disappointed with the food.

great place! but expensive
Loved everything about the Deck! Literally right on the sand, great live music, perfect for sunset dinner on a summer night with close friends! Be prepared to spend at least $35-40 though, drinks and food are expensive. Very yummy though! I would recommend the poke appetizer and the sliver surfer cocktail!

Great late Lunch
Food was great ! Deck is right on the Beach. I would not recommend bringing children. I also believe that Valet parking needs to be addressed

We love the deck! It's where we got engaged (at the bungalows right next door)! We cannot wait for the new menu to fully rollout in a week. We watched a gorgeous sunset over Catalina right on the beach. After the sun went down, we did wish there was a little more light to eat under, but all in all it was a great night!

Great food and Beach Front dining
The Crab Louie and Shrimp/Crab melt were to die for. We really loved the beach front dining overlooking the sand and ocean. We made the reservation through Open Table and did not wait two 2 min. Perfect romantic Sunset on a perfect evening.

This is a small restaurant with a great view. Heaters are available over outside tables and there is a nice gas fireplace inside. The menu is limited but everything we ordered was tasty and well prepared. The live singer was loud, but good. There are steep steps to get down to the dining area, but there is an elevator available down a driveway around the side of the entrance that I we only found out about as we were leaving.

I will say the food was amazing but more importantly was the service. Our server Luke was incredible. It's was cold and only one other couple. He tracked down another propane tank for our heater in seconds due to ours running out. He also could have easily just hung out since it wasn't busy but he still stayed very attentive to us and always was available. It seemed he read our minds when we were needing something. Also tracked us down across the parking lot into the hotel after my wife left her purse on the chair.
