The River Watch is a restaurant, marina and night club.  We have live music Fridays and Saturdays year round and add music both Thursdays 7:00-11:00 and Sundays (deck party) 5-9 during the spring and summer months.  The restaurant consists of Two outdoor bars (tiki bar and sunset bar).  A large promenade area overlooking the marina and a outdoor dining deck.  It is a popular summer hot spot.  A great place for dinner and dancing.  The winter time offers a more cozy setting with three fireplaces.  Plenty of transient slips available for overnight stays or for those coming for dinner or just a drink.  Check us out!  Hope to see you soon.
