Deep Creek Restaurant and Marina

Can someone tell me if our 5'3" keel can get back to Deep Creek Restaurant and Marina in Arnold, MD?

The 7' depth on the chart looks like it may end before we'd get to the restaurant, but the restaurant's web site says that it has "deep water" slips for transients.

Finally, is the food worth the hop across the Bay?

Thanks,

We were there by boat about a year ago and go there fairly often by car as we have family down that way. The restaurant has has decent food and atmosphere. The crabcakes, fish, and bar type food are good and the homemade rolls with cinnamon butter are excellent. It is a bit more upscale than a lot of waterfront restaurants while still having a down to earth feeling.

We draw 4'-3" - probably a bit more loaded up - and were showing less than a foot under our keel a couple hours after high tide in one of their slips. We didn't stick around for low tide. There's always the possibility of anchoring closer to the mouth of the creek and going in by dinghy.

Thank you for that information. Perhaps we'll stop in the next time we drive to Annapolis. I'll cross it off our sailing destination list.

We have gone to Deep Creek a number oif times. We also used it as a destination for a Sailnet meeting Sunday Brunch last winter. The chanel carries 7 feet all the way to the restauarnts docks and there are some large (40's) sailboats in the marina there. We have gone in there a number of times and we are 4'8 with 8 when the centerboard is dropped down. I have not seen less than 7 feet when we have gone in.

The restaurant is above average 7 olut of 10 with a very good Sunday brunch.

We have alsoanchored and taken the dinghy in a coupke of times as 4arch recommended.

Dave,

The bigger question is how is the food? Is it worth a trip?

It is worth a trip. Especially the Sunday brunch.

I checked the Chesapeake Bay Eats spreadsheet (4 stars from Joe McCary on each of two visits) and ActiveCaptain. The latter reports 8 feet approach and 6 feet alongside.

That said I (5'8") would be cautious if we've had North winds for a couple of days and much more confident in sustained South winds.
