Tolchester Marina has become like a second home to us! I've been coming here with my parents since I was a kid and now my husband and I go several times a month during the summer season. It's one of my favorite places around for many reasons. They have continued to invest in the property, there is always something new or improved each summer. Their staff come back year after year (I think that speaks volumes about a place) and they have become like family to us and could not be more accomodating. The Shanty Beach Bar always has great music, a fun atmosphere, good drinks and good simple food. If they ever list brisket on the menu, get it- it's awesome. The Channel Restaurant has an excellent breakfast. They are one of the more dog friendly marinas that we frequent and the beach area are great as well with the best sunset views on the bay. They have security on weekends and I think this is good, it keeps the atmosphere more family friendly. They also can do boat repairs. We broke a shaft coming in there one time, were taking on water and they got our boat out immediately. Their quick actions helped minimize the damage to our boat. We ended up having Tolchester do the repairs and they worked well with our insurance company and had us back in a week later. I could go on and on!
