Our Sponsor of the Month


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. In 1975 Tim and Cyndy Jones moved to the Central Coast from Newport Beach. Cyndy started working at a little cafe in the Village of Arroyo Grande and in the summers she would work nights at The Quarterdeck to give them extra help needed during the busy summers. When the Quarterdeck closed Cyndy became general manager of International House of Pancakes in Arroyo Grande where she learned the in's and out's of restaurant business.

After 5 years she crossed paths with Ray Peterman again and went to work at his restaurant in Pismo Beach, eventually becoming his bar manager. There she met her future business partner Ann Griffith. After many years of being closed The Quarterdeck was resurrected again in 1995 with the help of Ray Peterman under the ownership of Cyndy Jones and Ann Griffith. Eight years later Cyndy Jones bought out Ann Griffith and her and her husband Tim became the sole owners. Tim now retired from Cal Poly University keeps the restaurant looking pristine while Cyndy and her daughter Trisha Raetz (general manager) take pride in seeing that your food and service are always the best. On behalf of our entire staff, and the Jones family we thank you for joining our family at The Quarterdeck and hope you have a pleasurable dining experience with us.
