About Us

For over 30 years, The Quarterdeck has been known throughout the Central Coast and beyond for great food, cocktails, service, and atmosphere. 

Originally started by two brothers (Larry and Ray Peterman) on the corner of Grand Avenue and Oak Park, in Arroyo Grande, the tiny building was know for having a line around it with people waiting to sample the awesome food inside. In the late '80s the brothers went on to open a candy store and another restaurant and the famous Quarterdeck closed for a number of years...

Besides great food and a friendly service, Quarterdeck offers a full bar as well. When you've been to one bar, you've been to them all, right? Not the case at Quarterdeck, where most of the locals hang out not just for the cocktails but for the tropical decor and the warm and welcoming atmosphere. It's the perfect place to unwind, after a long day at work, or to hang out with a group of friends for a cocktail.
