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 80’s the brothers went on to open a candy store and another restaurant and the famous Quarterdeck closed for a number of years...
