Water Main Break in Front of Quarterdeck Restaurant

The Quarterdeck Restaurant in Fort Myer Heights is no longer landlocked. There’s now a small river flowing down Fort Myer Drive, past the 31-year-old seafood restaurant.

As if the Quarterdeck hasn’t had enough troubles as of late, crews will start tearing up the road in front of it later this afternoon to repair a 6 to 12 inch water main break.

Workers are waiting for clearance from electrical and gas utility companies before starting to dig. Once it begins, the repair process should take a few hours.

In addition to the street, water is also bubbling up through cracks in the Quarterdeck’s parking lot. No one was at the restaurant to tell us whether or not water was also leaking into the aging building’s basement.

  • Hurry!

    I live in Westemoreland Terrace Apartments down the street. I wonder what my water pressure will be like when I get home…

  • Thar she blows!

    everyone complains that Quarterdeck isn’t near “water” and now it is, everyone complains.

    First the restaurant goes under, then under water. Tough times on Ft. Meyer Drive lately
