We came here for a meal on a Sunday night. We are locals and know it's busy as hell on Sunday night. Especially a long weekend. We ordered food and the staff was awesome at bringing us food and beers. As we were trying to leave we were told we are not allowed downstairs because it's at capacity. After 45... More

Really great experience at Lower Deck Waterfront location. Waitress (Stephanie) was very pleasant and provided prompt and efficient service. When my water was empty she was there with another one. We had a groupon to use and enjoyed the nachos for our appetizer which were good. My husband had the planko crusted fish and chips which was delicious and very... More

I have eaten here several times over the last few months with my girlfriend. The food and service are consistently great. My only problem that I have with this place is that they don't serve percolated coffee, only instant. The entertainment is usually stellar.

We visited the Middle Deck because the Lower Deck is not opened for lunch yet, and they have a great lunch menu deal, a good variety for everyone to pick from. We told the waitress we were on a time crunch for lunch, and she delivered and our food arrived with time to spare. It was excellent, we all enjoyed... More

Ive been here twice this past weekend :) so far it is one of my favorite bars in hali. Servers are generally all friendly, the DJ upstairs is great after 11pm. The music downstairs is good as well (very loud, if you don't like loud music avoid) $8 cover is a little steep but that is likely to weed out... More

Great service, food was really good. Quite quick and generous portions all around. We were too early for the music and it wasn't packed either but I was told it gets really busy. Certainly a neat experience.

Music was great but the place was overly packed for its size. Top floor was good though and very relaxing to have a drink and chat with the fellas!
