The Quarterdeck reopened this spring. This “iconic” dining destination, which is located adjacent to the lighthouse in Harbour Town at The Sea Pines Resort, was rebuilt to include greater indoor and outdoor seating options with an expansive wraparound deck, an indoor bar and dining area on the first floor, and a rooftop oyster bar offering 270-degree views of Harbour Town Yacht Basin. A walk-up market on the ground level is a place to grab a quick bite. The market includes a fresh seafood counter, wines, microbrews, cheeses, and grab-and-go sandwiches. And the ice cream counter features 12 flavors of Häagen-Dazs.
“It’s going to be the hot spot of the state,” said Cliff McMackin, Director of Resort Development.
