Join the Party at Riverwatch Marina and Restaurant

Riverwatch Marina and Restaurant is a lively, entertainment focused marina located at the junction of Middle River and Hopkins Creek. Boaters will enjoy the beachy vibe of the indoor/outdoor restaurant and large Tiki Bar, which has awesome drink specials throughout the week.  Live music packs in a crowd every Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights during the summer and boaters looking for some scandalous fun may want to check the bikini contest schedule!

In addition to the restaurant and bar, Riverwatch Marina also offers boaters showers, pumpout, WiFi and an outdoor lounge. The marina is located next to a marina that specializes in boat service in case guests need repair work done. Towing is also easily accessible.

The River watch is a great place to visit have dinner and watch live shows with an amazing outside stage and sound system

Great, great marina and restaurant. The best sandwich all summer was the bacon, crab grilled cheese. Nick was awesome and helped me tie off in some heavy winds. I’ll be back, I was lucky there was an awesome band that came through. Check out the music lineup!

Overall, only good enough if there's no place else. They are friendly and helpful but nothing there but boats and maintenance. Could be ok for maintenance (don't know).
Also, arriving there is awkward and a lot of shallow water.
