Dockside Dining

12 restaurants where you can drop anchor and grab a bite by the water

For boat owners, this means spending as much time as you can onboard, and thanks to places with transient docking, you don’t have to be stuck with just a packed lunch and cooler full of drinks. Several restaurants along the waterfront offer slips for boaters to drop anchor and enjoy some good food on land. Here is a sampling of seaside establishments catering to dock-and-diners.
