The Deck Restaurant
We chose the Deck Restaurant to host our rehearsal dinner because of its great location on the Elizabeth River and great food. We wanted to have a more casual dinner, so we chose to have BBQ pork, potato salad, cole slaw, and all the fixings. Everyone thought the food was absolutely delicious, and the scenery was amazing. They were able to meet our requests and were very helpful in recommending different foods, wines, beers, etc. The staff was very personable and professional. The chef even came out to make sure we were all satisfied with the food. It was truly a fabulous experience, and I would recommend this venue to anyone who wants professional and reliable service!!!
We chose The Deck for our wedding reception because of it's beautiful location on the Elizabeth River. After speaking with Kevin Young, the manager, I knew this was the place for us. Nothing uptight, very flexible, and wonderful food. Though we couldn't fulfill the desire for an outside event due to the rain, the staff accommodated over 100 family and friends in their dining room upstairs with ease. Kevin allowed us to customize our own menu (heavy cocktail reception) and was more than willing to work with our budget. He kept in touch via email and phone pretty easily, but is often out of the office due to other responsibilities within the marina. Frequent contact made this event go off beautifully!
We were so happy to choose the Deck Restaurant for our rehearsal dinner venue. The food was excellent and the value was great. The location overlooks the Elizabeth River and was within walking distance of the Renaissance Portsmouth Hotel.
