According to AC Weekly “The bands are stellar. Each summer The Deck manages to be one of the best spots to see live music in Atlantic City. With a mix of the area’s top cover bands playing everything from oldies to modern rock, you can be sure the party will stay energized. And unlike some bars that cram the band in a back corner of the floor, The Deck features a large stage and top- notch sound system, giving the performers plenty of space to put on a real show.”
