Arden Kitchen & Bar

Arden Kitchen & Bar

  A few minutes’ walk from Port Jefferson Harbor, I saw a sign on the street directing me upstairs for good food. The sign wasn’t misleading. Arden is a spot for dining Wednesdays through Sundays, a place for brunching on Sundays, a venue for dancing to a hot DJ and a cool band (sometimes vice […]

If you are like me you can easily plan a whole day around a meal (or two). Taking your boat to a great restaurant is a perfect way to plan a day.  We are lucky enough to live on a lake that is filled with an abundance of amazing restaurants that are boat accessible. Here […]

The rear entrance to PeraBell East sports an outdoor patio bar and tables to enjoy drinks and delicious fare; if climbing stairs to the patio deck isn’t feasible, the restaurant’s Main Street entrance is a […]

One of Virginia’s many charms is that it is a state rich with historical towns. As a boater, you can add to the charm by spending a day exploring a harborside town such as Yorktown. Yorktown is part of the “Historic Triangle” in Virginia made up of Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg. The town is filled […]

Enter Northport Bay from Huntington Bay — you’ll see four looming power stacks, Northport’s most visible landmark.  The village dock offers transient space on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge until 5:00 pm.  From 5:00 – 10:00 pm there is a flat fee of $20.00, and boaters wishing to remain overnight pay $2.00/foot for […]

Nestled in the heart of historic Stony Brook, Latitude 121 is across the way from the harbor and a short walk from the Stony Brook Yacht Club. Occupying the same space as Brook House, the new restaurant opted to keep its predecessor’s ice cream parlor and family friendly atmosphere while revamping the dining area and […]

We’ve compiled a list of places that won’t frown on visits from Fido, at least some of the time. Owners should look for posted signs or call ahead before clambering off the boat with canine companions. Babylon Village: There are dog runs at Rotary Path and Whaler’s Cove. Poop bags are offered at Argyle Memorial […]

Northport is one of our favorite overnight boating destinations.  The town dock at the foot of Main Street is always a place to be seen!  When we pull into Northport hungry, we usually go for the tasty and great-value takeout of Maroni Cuisine, which is located a very quick walk from the dock. While known […]

The alluring aroma of garlic may not make it all the way from Campari to your boat, but once you’ve tied up at the village dock and started the short walk up Main Street, it’s bound to find you. A pizza counter greets you first, but this place is more than a bustling takeout business. […]
