The Deck's casual coastal menu offers fresh seafood fare and handcrafted cocktails in a relaxed, beachlike environment. Settle into starters such as the she crab soup, a classic Carolinian concoction of blue-crab meat, crab roe, and dry sherry ($3.99/$6.99), or a dozen oysters on the half shell fashionably festooned with atomic cocktail sauce or classic mignonette ($12.99). Fish tacos are made to order with beer-battered cod ($7.99), achiote-seared rare tuna ($9.50), or blackened mahi mahi ($8.99), while the lobster roll swaddles Maine lobster in a buttery, split-top roll coverlet ($15.99). For patrons parched for liquid nourishment, The Deck offers handcrafted exotic cocktails made with fresh-squeezed juices. Fresh-pressed sugar cane boosts a traditional mojito's flavor powers ($8.50), and the margarita combines house-infused, candied orange Cazadores Reposado tequila with fresh lime juice and a syrupy kiss of agave nectar ($9). With its rooftop-deck seating and serene marine color scheme, The Deck offers seaside-style relaxification without the need for beach towels, sunscreen, or sandworm repellent.
