Captain Keith could not be more accommodating, helping us into marina during swift tide. Got us ice, gave directions on things to do in area. Restaurant is beautiful, inside bar gorgeous with outside bar as well. Would stay here again

Pro: Modern floating docks, good water and power, Capt Keith is super helpful. Locals and transients mix well. The restaurant is very good. Good access to town. Price is right. Good dog walking.
Con: Shoreside services consist of one 3-room toilet/shower trailer and 2 trash barrels. Tidal current can be challenging at times. No breakwater. Docks get rolly in wind and wakes.

Conclusion: Worth a stop in good weather. Leave your ego below and let Capt Keith coach you thru entrance/exit at high current, He really knows his stuff. (He had us back into the entrance, bow to the current, and taught us to crab sideways into our slip. Wow)

Great marina with a 5 star restaurant. Best meal on the great loop so far. Keith is excellent at helping get a boat in under rough conditions. He also took the time to go over our plans for the transit north and the Erie Canal. We learned a lot from his experience. So many great places to take the dog on a long walk.

Shadows would get a 5 star if not for its exposure to wakes and the river's current. The docks are new and Keith the dock master knows his marina and is a good at guiding you in and out when the current is running. Shadows restaurant at the top of the dock is first rate.

This place was fabulous! 5 starts doesn't do it justice.

The docks are in great shape, the wifi is excellent, and the power is good. Of special importance is the dockmaster, Keith. He is super knowledgeable about everything marine, and is always willing to help. I needed some diesel fuel in a can to use changing my Racor filters, and he drove to the gas station to pick some up for me. What service!!!

We docked on the outside dock, and there was an occasional wake from passing barges, but it was just fine for us in a 45 foot boat.

We will definitely stop here again.
