A new restaurant opened in September in Ocean Springs. The Deck is located on highway 90 next to the old Indian Motorcycle shop.
General Manager, Haifa Naber explained why it was named The Deck.
"It was not to be called The Deck in the beginning until the deck was finished. The owner's son looked and looked and looked and hence the deck."
Behind the restaurant is a huge deck where, during warmer weather, live music floats through the air. There's also a playground with picnic tables near.
"The playground for the children was one of the greatest ideas. The parents come in, they're eating, they're having fun with their friends, their kids are playing. They're really having a great time out there."
The Deck is a place to hang out with friends, listen to music and fill your stomach.
"The food is wonderful. We have fried food... steaks... pastas. We have low carb items... appetizers. We have a little bit of everything,"
"Our appetizer, the crab balls, are number one. The Boat is one of our best sellers. It's a big bread bowl, and it's stuffed with scallops and oysters and shrimp and catfish. The Black and Blue Steak has got to be one of the new top sellers. It's off the low carb menu."
The low carb menu is huge with 38 options, including a couple of low carb desserts.
"It's a very down to earth kind of place. This place is a lot of fun. It's a fun atmosphere. It's not stuffy at all. It's very casual."
The Deck is open weekdays from 11am until 10pm and weekends from 11 am until midnight. Live music is on the back deck in the evenings, during warmer weather. For more information call (228) 872-6833.
