For lunch we decided to be super touristy, and head to Sea Pines to try out The Quarterdeck and then browse the touristy shops. We were all pretty hungry, so we didn't take too much time with the menu. M & C, who are 10 and 9, respectively, took one look at the kid's menu and both decided on chicken fingers with fries. And Oreos. Both girls enjoyed them, though C wasn't a huge fan of the BBQ dipping sauce. M liked the way that the chicken fingers were breaded. Both M & C were particularly happy that their meals came with Oreos for dessert. M decided to save hers for later, and she put them in my purse. I was sorely tempted to keep them for myself. How do you go wrong with Oreos?
|Everything came in metal baskets. Which was great, except that there wasn't a place to put the ketchup for the fries.|
|Look at the cheese oozing out. I LOVE that in a burger.|
|It was stuffed too. This wrap was awesome.|
Overall, we had a pretty good experience. We sat outside, despite the initial protests of the kids who, being from the northeast, weren't really into the heat and humidity of SC (and yes, I know it gets humid in the northeast, but it is NOTHING compared to the southeast. Just trust me on that, as I've lived and dealt with it in both places). It was nice, as there were plenty of ceiling fans under the roof and there was a slight breeze coming off of the water. The food was good and the company was fabulous. But here's the thing. If beach towns had their own special food chain restaurants, they would probably model them after The Quarterdeck. It was good, and I enjoyed myself, but it was hardly the best meal I've ever had. I'd go back, but maybe for late night dining so that I could sit on the upper level and look out over the island.
You can find the Quarterdeck on the web.
