    looks delicious.

    too bad that the parking situation has caused the local folks to park there.
    i wonder if the west deck loses any business as a result?

    i could sit there and nurse a few cold ones for hours!
    it is a wonderful location.

    We started with a bucket of Balishi (6 small bottles) for $20.00. The beers were ice cold. My wife had the fish sandwich with a side of potatoe salad and I had a burger with sweet potato fries. Both dishes were excellent! The overall experience here is tropical with soft beach music in the background. The total bill was $59.00 which includes a 15% service charge. We would and will return. Here are a few photos of our food and a view from the deck showing the fishing boats.

    I think they could lose a fair amount of business if someone is looking for a quick meal and are afraid to go because it looks like its packed with all of the cars.

    West Deck is one of my favorite afternoon spots. Love to order an assortment of appetizers and hang out for a bit. Staff is great and you're never rushed.

    No loss of business due to parking, we went there when we first arrived and the parking lot was packed. Took a left and drove down the Linear walk-way and parked in the shade (plenty of folks had done the same thing)... No worries and good food and drinks as always. Just have to park like a local and find a spot the car fits in!

    Love the bucket of beer idea. On my next trip I land at 1130am and the check in at La Cabana isn't until 4pm so I'm planning on going there for lunch first and then to the resort.

    A friend from the island took us to dinner last month there, first time.

    Honestly my food was good, atmosphere relaxed.

    For the cost of dinner, would probably choose elsewhere.

    Now if you're talking about lunch, that would be more appealing.
    bucket's of beer. no brainer.. lol
