    Sitting outside listening to the SavoyTrio was amazing, what a great band. The food was excellent! The wait staff were really helpful as our table was in the sun so they moved us into the shade as we asked. 7 of us were seated comfortably. Next time we would sit a bit back from the stage as we could not hear each other talk.

    The Sunday outdoor Blues Jam is a lot of fun & great music! The Janet Ryan & Straight Up band with some of the best musicians in the Valley is the host band and plays a set for about 1.5 hrs. Then, guest musicians sign up to play for the next 1.5 hrs. providing some interesting & excellent combinations of musicians who may or may not have played before. The ambiance & food are excellent at the Deck and the service is spot on! I highly recommend the Deck bar with it's Blues Jam session for Sunday Funday. It's a great way to finish off your weekend!

    The early evening was sunny but quite windy. Our server, Africay was very helpful in finding us the perfect spot to sit outdoors to enjoy our meal. She was attentive, informative and had a great sense of humor. Food arrived promptly and was delicious. Looking forward to a return visit.

    Overall the experience was very good, however, I do have one suggestion: please use covers for your buffet serving pans. The food was delicious but not hot. In the short time I got back to my table the food was tepid, which is a shame because it really was very wonderful.

    I was so grateful for the opportunity to eat in the Deck Bar's igloo, as it was my husband's birthday and we wanted to do something other than takeout, but aren't ready for restaurants yet. The staff were friendly, the igloo comfortable, and the food surprisingly good. We will return.

    Waitress was super nice… did the Igloo but it was kind off cold in it. Nacho appetizer was awesome, Guacamole was not great felt a little old. Had a strawberry mojito wasn’t the greatest. Had a Butger and Fries.. Burger was great but the Fries where burned and they still served it to us like that🤦🏻‍♀️…I don’t care to go back at all.,. And it was our first time there

    Northampton is a good midpoint town to meet with family from CT. I don't like sports bars so I made the reservation thinking we'd only get drinks and move on to somewhere else. The weather was so perfect and the outdoor dining area was so comfortable and safe feeling that it didn't make sense to leave. We all enjoyed our specialty drinks. Food was on par or better with any chain. The service was perfectly attended and never bothersome. We left to do some window shopping and look for a place to get desert. Ninety minutes later we were back at the Deck Bar enjoying the Brownie Sundaes. I should mention that there were no TVs in the outside area where were seated so there was minimal distraction. The day went so perfectly thanks to the Deck Bar that it would be foolish to not acknowledge what good fortune we had in selecting them.

    Ordered an appetizer and dinner.. asked to be sure they came out separately. They came together after a VERY long wait. Both were stone cold. Both my date and I woke up with stomach pains a few hours after getting home and to bed. The drinks were great and the atmosphere was good aside from the noise of first responders pulling someone off the train tracks after they got hit by a train. Overall it was a pretty disappointing date.

    Our server was friendly but busy due to there only being 2 for all the tables. We ordered drinks and an appetizer and waited to place our dinner order. We got the drinks and then put in our order. We ended up getting our dinner but no appetizer came. They apologized and the server said she thought it was part of our dinner which didn’t make sense. They didn’t even bring them with dinner. So we just cancelled. Also no one came around for more drinks. Overall good place. We have eaten there other times and the food is always good.
