As The Deck is just up the road from where we were staying, we decided to try their takeaways. Being a weeknight, last orders were at 4.45pm, so I decided to order early and reheat later. The burger, hotdog and chips were excellent. They stay open 'til 7.30pm over the weekends which would have suited us better. If sunny, get... More

We've just been there yesterday and found that it's a gret place to have a break or a quick lunch. Nice views over the water and a cool breeze rounded it up to be a good experiance

We went for a short walk nearby and were looking for a nice place to have fish n chips. The service and meal we received was excellent. It was fresh and we all enjoyed what we chose. Thanks.

After a day at the beach or after walking some of the splendid local tracks there is nothing better than fish and chips at The Deck overlooking McLeod Bay. The Sunday evening roast is not only good value it is also very good food.

When housesitting in McLeod Bay we have bought Bluenose and chips every year for 7 years - the quality is amazing and definitely the best fish and chips we have ever eaten! It is delicious and although it costs a bit more than the everyday "fish and chips" it is well worth paying the extra - highly recommend the Deck!

Whether you are just popping in for coffee or ice cream, or a wine with a meal the staff will look after you well. And the food is real too. Glad to call The... More

Have visited the Deck several times for lunch. The food especially the fish and chips are superb. Service has always been consistently excellent and staff (and owners) are always cheerful and friendly.
