There was no contact with anyone running the dock part of this set up. Apparently you can pull in any slip..no deck hand to help or give direction. After tieing up...we trying to "chech in" and were told to see the host who had no idea what we were talking about. There a gate with a combo lock to the dock...got three different answers to what the code is. Great play for day day place. The brewery itself is great. Food was excellent and service was good. Good place for day trips. Bathrooms clean, no showers. Bakery in walking distance. Would actually stay again...now that we know what to expect.
After hearing about this great place, I stopped in on my way from Newport to Mamaroneck. It did not disappoint as this is a great destination visit (I stayed the night). As boaters we are always looking for fun places to go. Dan, the owner could not have been more hospitable. Docks and power are brand new and the Restuarant and Brewery is lively and so much fun! This is a rare find on the water and I would recommend making it a destination for any boater.
The marina was easy to find and very clean.
Easy walk to Grocery and onsite resterant was Great!! wicked current just be ready.
Was Oktoberfest, so a lot of fun... restaurant was great... overall the experience was good, a couple of things to be aware of: - the marina does not monitor any VHF channel, so you're on your own when approaching - make sure you call the restaurant once you are on your way (or travelling up the river) to get a slip number (and be prepared to have to ask a boat to move from your allocated slip - the 50A shore power is dicey. We need at least 210V and we had less than 200V at times Overall a good experience and we will DEFINITELY be back
Excellent atmosphere on the docks and having food brought down to the boat makes it so much easier and enjoyable.
