Quarter Deck Cafe
Set your watch to island time at the Quarterdeck Waterfront Café. This lakeside restaurant and bar is located at the Tera Miranda Resort and Marina on the Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, but it’s got a lot more to offer than a scenic view. The folks at this Monkey Island hotspot have been serving burgers, fried catfish, fresh wraps and more to hungry lake-goers since 2008.
Start off with an order of crispy onion rings and a cold draft beer. Then sink your teeth into a delectable specialty sandwich like the Meat-and-Mac, starring a hearty pile of pulled pork and savory mac and cheese bites, smothered in the Quarterdeck’s house-made beer cheese dip and served on a toasted bun. For something a bit lighter, try the smoked chicken salad croissant or one of the Quarterdeck's fresh garden salads.
No need to wait before getting back in the water. Take a dip in the restaurant's dining-area pool and swim off some of those delicious calories. It’s one of the Quarterdeck's many quirky features that make for a fun and unique dining experience. Whether you arrive by car or by boat, the Quarterdeck Waterfront Café is the perfect complement to a great day on the water.
