Don’t let the casual ambience fool you. Quarterdeck is award-winning and takes all things cuisine and libations very seriously (and with “no less than” 40 TVs, their sports bar reputation as well). Masters of sushi and spirits grace the restaurant with expert eyes, and corporate chef Kevin McCarthy is constantly tweaking and refining the restaurant’s offerings. In their decades of operations, they have served an estimated 1.5 million dolphin sandwiches (don’t worry, that’s another name for mahi) and 1 million full rack-of-rib dinners. When it comes to cocktails, don’t forget to try what Quarterdeck claims is “the best old fashioned” in South Florida.
While we managed to escape the wrath of Hurricane Dorian, our friends to the south in the Bahamas weren’t so lucky. With the Category 5 storm hovering over the islands for nearly two days, communities are devastated.
The shared patio between the new Quarterdeck and Whiskey Neat Fort Lauderdale locations is the perfect place to celebrate National Dog Day with your pup.

Say goodbye to Quarterdeck
One door is closing and another soon opening for the Quarterdeck restaurant’s flagship Fort Lauderdale location. After 53 years, the weathered old bar on Cordova Road will serve its last shrimp, ribs and beers on Easter Sunday (April 21).
Longstanding Fort Lauderdale restaurant and bar, Quarterdeck, will close its Cordova Road location after more than 50 years in business. The longtime South Florida haunt, recognizable by its kitschy decor including 100 fishing mounts, deep sea diving pictures, and antique ship models, estimates it’s served more than 1.5 million dolphin sandwiches and one million full rib rack dinners over the years.
This Sunday, the iconic Quarterdeck bar and restaurant in Fort Lauderdale will be closing—but not for long. It’ll be closed hopefully for just two weeks as it moves down the street to a new home, and celebrations are planned this weekend to say goodbye to the building.
