It was a beautiful evening (i.e. Sept 3). I had a really nice beer that was on tap. I got the burger wit the pimento cheese (med). It was done perfectly. The fries that came with it were done just right also. I really enjoyed my meal. I had 2 scoops of ice cream and a great cup of coffee to finish it off. My wife Linda also enjoyed her meal. The couple with us Steve & Karen also enjoyed their meals. Karen had the lobster roll and said it was the best she's had outside of Maine. This was our meal before the show (Always, Patsy Cline).

I would recommend The Deck if someone was looking for a place to have a casual so so meal. I liked the location and enjoyed the view and open garage door concept.
The noise level Was a bit loud but it was a Saturday night. The service was slow and we rarely saw her after our food as brought to the table. Two of us got beyond burgers which were dry and bland. I usually love beyond burgers and order them frequently. The herb fries were good but those are kind of hard to mess up. One of us ordered the lobster roll which surprising was a salad.
We also ordered a chocolate desert which was very small and we didn’t even finish because it was just so so.
Probably would only return to The Deck if I had no other choices for dining

Great place to eat before a show. The mushroom soup was really superb, thick with mushrooms, no filler or corn starch. The Beyond Burger was good--my first experience with this vegetarian option. Alex, our server, was excellent, attentive without being intrusive, even as the restaurant filled up with theater goers.

First and foremost, they didn’t seat us for 45 minutes after the time of our reservation. They did offer a free glass of wine. The waiter knew the situation and still wasn’t prompt taking our order. The beef was so tough I couldn’t eat it. They knew we had tickets for the playhouse and acted like we had all night. This is the second time I eat at the restaurant and both times were awful. Do yourself a favor and go someplace else.

Food and Service was over the top! Nice job...Servers knew just when to show up or leave us undisturbed. The food was sensational; extremely unique combinations provided an excitement with each course served. Seating was closer that we like and for a while were overpowered by a very loud conversation at a very close table. However, we will be back based on the food and service.

Food was also outstanding. It was well prepared and the presentation was absolutely beautiful. The smoked chicken was out of this world in terms of taste and presentation.

I was running a little late to my reservation due to parking, and called ahead to tell them. Got there at 7:12 for a 7:00 reservation. Didn’t get sat until 7:45 at a table that was open the whole time. It was also right on top of another table. Asked the host to move, which she allowed, then got greeted by the server by her telling us we can’t move because the food runner won’t know where to go. Ended up leaving and was disappointed, because I was really looking forward to this place.

the mushroom soup was excellent as was the lobster roll- filled with chunks of lobster.
We also had a salad and gazpacho both fresh and great tasting.
It was an early dinner after the matinee performance of Patsy Kline.
It tends to get a bit noisy but that is ok. Great to see a fairly new restaurant doing well.

is "energetic" your definition of "loud"?- only drawback to the place when crowded...it is "loud"
better designed sound absorbing materials, soothing, low, music...etc. would make it a more

The food was exceptional and we enjoyed the live music even during the week. Our only issue was that our waitress wasn't very knowledgeable about how the food was prepared nor the meaning of one of the French words that was used to describe a particular item on the menu.

We arrived about 10 of 7 for a 7PM reservation and the place was very busy, and a bit noisy. A quick scan of the menu made us think we had made a mistake. Around 7PM, the throngs of people in the restaurant went into the theater for the 7:30 show. Once we were seated and had a chance to take a better look at the menu, everyone found something to their liking. Every bite of everything we ate, was just excellent. We all tasted each other's dishes, and really loved every bite, from soup to dessert. Our waiter was awesome. Efficient, fun, and made for a memorable meal. Can't wait to go back!

The décor of the restaurant is really nice, and blends perfectly with the Playhouse. We sat at a window table on a sunny Sunday afternoon, and the view of the Delaware River was gorgeous. We split the shrimp Waldorf salad and the Charcuterie Board as a shared appetizer, both were delicious. We both ordered the lobster rolls, which were FANTASTIC and served with excellent fries served in little paper-lined terra cotta pots, which was a nice touch. For dessert, we split the zucchini bread served with fruit, a mint sauce, and a small scoop of ice cream -- perfect light ending to a big meal. The service was outstanding, our Server Izzy was wonderful, helpful, attentive and the courses were delivered at a perfect pace...never waiting, and never rushed. Cocktail and beer selection were very good, too. This was our first visit, but we will definitely be back!
