The Deck House is a unique destination for a coastal meal, due to its eye-catching location in a former Carolina Beach Presbyterian Church and that was built in 1946. With a completely renovated interior that features wooden tables, booths, and floors, as well as ship sails towering overhead, the Deck House is a true dining experience from the inside out.
As one would expect from such a heavy application of maritime décor, the big focus on the Deck House’s menu is seafood. Patrons will want to start a multi-course meal with a big bowl of grouper chowder – a local favorite – and then move on to a coastal appetizer, like hot crab dip, grouper nuggets, or sautéed mussels. From there, diners will have a hard time of choosing from the collection of seafood and “from the grill” entrees, (which includes several choice steaks including filet mignon, top sirloin, and ribeye), but when in doubt, opt for the Chef Specialties. In this corner of the menu, patrons will find creative delicacies like a shrimp and scallop stir fry, sesame encrusted tuna, Grouper Piccata, and New Orleans Style Shrimp and Grits. Always tasty, and a real delight for seafood fans, this restaurant combines Carolina Beach history and local flavor in one delicious bite.
