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
enjoyable experience.

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. Otherwise, it's a beautiful location that I would highly recommend.

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!

The most impressionable thing about our lunch at The Deck was the service. Alex was an excellent waiter! He was attentive, helpful, and accommodating. Our lunch was yummy, we both had the hamburger. I chose The Deck because my special needs daughter was in a wheelchair and we had a play to attend at the Bucks County Playhouse. There is an entrance to the playhouse in the restaurant and our handicapped seats were right by the entrance. In order to enter the restaurant there is an elevator located outside in the rear of the restaurant. Also, there are two roomy handicapped restrooms inside the restaurant that I was able to use during the play's intermission. We enjoyed our lunch at The Deck.

Beautiful and fun setting. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food and drinks were served promptly. Of four people dining, the reaction was mixed, either the meal/taste was ‘ok’ or ‘very good’. The menu has something for everyone but is not expansive with options (though that’s not necessarily a bad thing). We sat at a slower time, so cannot say what the noice level and ambience is during a busy night. Will definitely visit again and look forward to trying different menu options.

A great addition to New Hope, particularly if you want a good meal or drinks before or after the theatre. My wife enjoyed the chicken with bacon and mushrooms, and I had the lobster roll, which is right up there with Legal Seafood’s, which has been my standard. House Sauvignon Blanc was good—slightly floral and fruity. Service was excellent. Sat in the back, which is quiet.

Had a wonderful experience after the show! I have celiac disease and the Restaurant Director, Corey was gracious enough to communicate with me beforehand to let me know what I could eat. When I ordered, our server, Izzy was friendly and helpful. My meal was not only prepared gluten free but the food for our entire party was delicious! The restaurant itself is attached to the back of the Bucks County Playhouse on the River. Wonderful river views from large garage-door style windows. (which appear to open when the weather is good) Great location!

The very disappointing part of it all was the valet parking that I pre-paid for $20 and had to sit out in the hot sun for about 30 minutes waiting for my car I had my daughter and her friend both with special needs and I had my mother who is 80 years old waiting outside all that time they were more concerned about the cars coming in I guess to collect more money then they were about the people that had already paid and were waiting in the hit sun

Awful. I read reviews good They did take it off the price, but the 2nd one came without anything on it. Waiter was more than accommodating, and apologetic, I felt bad for him. 4 of 5 had alcohol drinks, were just okay; expensive. The 2 desserts, had planned to share were so small & so-so. I ordered creme burlee, $9 - size of a flattened shot glass. It came w a macaroon (think they were purchased at Cosco). My bill was $203.00 (with tip). Very disappointed, will never go back!

We were 15 min early for our reservation as the show from the Playhouse let out. It took several minutes for the hostesses to even acknowledge us- we just wanted to let them know we were there but in case they could seat us but understood we were early. When they finally spoke to us, they had us wait until the reservation time and then took us to the table that was vacant. We were not interested in drinks at the bar. Our waiter Alex was attentive and checked back several times to be sure everything was to our liking and keeping beverage glasses full. Our party mostly had sandwiches which came with large servings of seasoned fries - all were tasty. The Deck is worth a visit to decide for yourself.

My mom and I have been wanting to try The Deck for a while and am so glad we finally did! We were seeing a show that evening at the Bucks County Playhouse, so I made a reservation 90 minutes before the show as recommended by the restaurant. They sat us immediately, and our food came out pretty quickly after ordering. It's a fairly seasonal menu, so if they have the Lobster Roll, I highly recommend it! The herbed fries were amazing as well. We were finished with plenty of time before the show. The Deck was busy, so it was a bit loud, but we had a lovely dinner. Our waiter was very friendly and we enjoyed our evening. Definitely recommend, especially if seeing a show, as they even have an entrance to the theater from the restaurant.
