Brophy Bros

Brophy Bros

April 1, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

  Brophy Bros. is directly on the Ventura Harbor and seems to be bustling at all times—especially during weekends and happy hour during the week. Casual, local favorite for many years, thanks to offering the best view in the harbor, Brophy Bros. is a great spot to grab a drink, have a snack or enjoy […]

  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 […]

Before 2006, Le Tub Saloon was a hole-in-the-wall favorite among locals. Things changed in February of that year when Alan Richman of GQ magazine named their 13-ounce sirloin burger the best in the nation. And the rest is burger history. Located off A1A on the Intracoastal Waterway in Hollywood, the restaurant has a 150-foot dock […]

Frigate’s Waterfront Bar and Grill on U.S. Highway 1 in North Palm Beach is a favorite stop for my family of four. Nestled on the shore of the Intracoastal, it’s easily accessible by boat with 500 feet of dock space (first-come, first-served). And they happen to be dog friendly — a big plus for our […]

King Neptune is a restaurant that lives up to its name, whether the reference is to the mythological Roman or the Disney mermaid’s dad. It’s a fine seafood eatery located a short walk from the docks in the fishing village of Port Salerno on the Manatee Pocket, a bay with access to both the Intracoastal […]

Boaters on the Rappahannock looking for a unique place to dock and dine can set a course for Yankee Point Marina. Nestled in the quiet waters of Myer’s Creek off the Corrotoman River, the marina offers two different venues, the Poolside Café and Windows on the Water, along with ample free dockage while you eat, […]

  History isn’t usually a reason I seek out an eatery. I’m looking for good food, friendly service, and convenient docking, and Althouse 1848 satisfies my criteria. There’s a warm feeling inside this two-level gastropub and when the weather’s warm, there’s also outdoor seating overlooking the water. Though the inviting bar area has of the […]

Lobster Grille Inn 162 Inlet Rd. Southampton 631-283-1525 http://lobstergrilleinn.com/ I’m secure enough to describe the Lobster Grille Inn as cute. There’s a very homey atmosphere on the inside, with a fully stocked bar sitting right in front of a large fish tank. In addition, the restaurant’s location right on the water provides a pretty nice […]

Captree Cove Restaurant 3500 East Ocean Parkway Bay Shore 631-587-3447 http://www.captreecoverestaurant.com/ The first thing I noticed about Captree Cove was its beautiful, no, gorgeous surroundings. It’s a treat on the south shore — the restaurant has five slips, and boaters also have access to any available space on the outside pier on a first-come, first-served […]

Tres Palms

  Tres Palms is a quaint waterfront restaurant in Babylon Village that can’t conceal its love of the ocean, waves, and surfing. The relaxing and stress-shedding decor makes you feel like you could be in the Caribbean, rather than overlooking the Great South Bay. The wait staff was equally tranquil. Nothing was rushed, but everything […]

The Mattituck Inlet is an idyllic place to boat. Ducks and swans share the waterway, and herons and egrets soar by, perhaps pausing to see if there’s anything good to eat in your boat.
