Re: Dock and Dines?

I'll add one more to this thread:

Looks like Legal Seafood opened docks at its Boston Harborside location this season:

Legal Sea Foods - The Standard for Quality and Freshness in the Restaurant Business.

Note says "And transient docking for boats is available in season at the Liberty Wharf Marina."

Expensive, though:

Information | Docks | Marina | Liberty Wharf

$20/hr, 1hr minimum. That could be an expensive lunch...

Just go at high tide .

If I get over there, I'll take soundings with me boat hook.

Great picture! I just added this location to the ActiveCaptain database.

With anchoring there, you might be concerned about the current from the Sakonnet. I know it's pretty strong between the old bridge abuttments just south of there.

Anyone else have any places they like to dock 'n dine?

That is my O'day 35, with a 5' 7" keel, tied up at the end of the specific dock that we are discussing...
Now that's some great recon. Thanks.

Looks like that end spot is all that would work for us. Perhaps dropping the hook just south of the dock or across the channel in that cove would work. Any word on holding? Assume its all mud?

Kind of fun to have a new place to go, right in our back yard.

As you can see, this is an old oil terminal, but the tanks and dolphins are long gone.

You tie up at the dock.

That's the frustrating thing about finding dock 'n dines: even restaurants that have docks don't publicize it anywhere.

I found this place in Greenwich Cove last night:

Harbourside Lobstermania

They have slips for customers.
In the satellite photo, it looks like the Boathouse has a single pier, when the chart seems to show something more significant. I wonder if they remove an outer dock in the winter and that's when the sat photo was taken. If not, it seems to get shallow very quickly along that pier. I'm going to have to think about finding a place to anchor if that outer dock isn't present.

There are several restaurants on the water in Greenwich Cove. Some are much better than Lobstermania, but I can't recall names. We usually anchor at Goddard State Park, just outside the cover and dinghy in. We like the Grille on Main, if you walk up to Main St. Its not too far. There is also a great Italian place up there, whose name escapes me. There is a town dock at the farthest southern end of Greenwich Cove where you can stay free for an hour or two. Unfortunately, it is furthest from the action too.
