About Us

D.J.’s Deck is a family owned and operated seafood restaurant and has been a local favorite for years.  We are known for our courteous service, great food and casual, relaxing atmosphere.  Found under the Dunlawton Bridge on the northeast side, we are located in a commercial marina, overlooking the inter-coastal waterway, and only two blocks from the “world’s most famous beach”. You can’t miss the large Polynesian style Tiki Hut.

D.J.’s Deck’s menu is guaranteed to satisfy everyone’s taste. From our delicious fried or grilled seafood selections to land-lubber favorites.  We also have a “Shrimpy” menu tailored just for the kids.  And don’t forget to ask about our fresh catch of the day. So check out the menu we think you will like what you see.

Need a cold beverage?  We have a large selection of domestic and craft beers. If beer isn’t what you are looking for, let us make you a tropical drink supported by our full liquor bar. We also have brewed tea and Coke products.

D.J.’s Deck is all about our beautiful water view with a casual and relaxing atmosphere.  Our guest can enjoy lunch or dinner under our large Tiki Hut, overlooking the inter-coastal waterway.  We also have inside dining as well. With plenty of seats available under the Tiki Hut, there is no need for reservations.

So, come join us, sit back, relax and enjoy our awesome sunsets on the water while you sip on your favorite beverage and/or enjoying your favorite meal. Don’t be surprised if a commercial fishing boat pulls up and unloads their catch right there on the dock. Our guests really enjoy seeing the fresh fish coming off the boat.

And don’t forget, whether you drive up, ride up, walk up or boat up, it is always ‘come as you are’.


Meet the Owners


David and Kim Graham were both born and raised in the Daytona Beach area.  David left the area to pursue a career with Florida Power & Light in south Florida where he also graduated from Barry University with a Business Management degree.  Once they were married, Kim also moved to South Florida and had a career in banking.  During this 23 year period, they also adopted their son, Matthew.   

With Kim’s parents owning Port Orange Marina, a new opportunity arose which would bring them back home and into the restaurant business.  David and Kim opened the doors to D.J.’s Deck in August of 2000.  They built their business with a simple concept, “treat people the way you yourself want to be treated”.  Priority one was to provide the best customer service for their guests.  They also saw the value in good quality seafood and took advantage of the product the commercial fishermen were bringing right to the marinas dock.   

David & Kim also did not want to interfere with the casual, relaxing atmosphere that the river and, of course, the spectacular sunsets provided.  So they instilled in their staff that quality service and food should always be provided to their guests with a sincere courteous smile.  All efforts were to be made to ensure that all guests’ needs were met seamlessly.  The D.J.’s Deck team was to always sincerely greet their guests when they came in and thank their guests for coming when they left.  The Graham’s did not ignore the fact that their staff has value and should be treated with respect by them and each other.  And that resonant through the way they work together and support each other. 

These values are the core part of D.J.’s Deck still today.  The D.J.’s Deck team works very hard to ensure that all their guests’ needs are met and that they enjoy their experience while there.
