The River Watch is a Restaurant, Marina and night Club.  We have live music Fridays and Saturdays year round and add music on Sundays for our Original SuNdAy FuNdAy Deck Parties from 5-9pm, with a DJ starting at 2pm, during the spring and summer months.  The restaurant consists of a deck, patio and two outdoor bars (tiki bar and sunset bar).  All of our areas look out onto Hopkin's Creek and our marina.  It is a popular summer hot spot, one definitely not to miss! We are a great place for lunch, dinner, dancing and soaking up the beautiful view with a cocktail in hand.  
The winter time offers a more cozy setting with three fireplaces and a view of the river.  It's a great time to come down, sip a Winter Warmer and watch the serene river roll by.  Plenty of transient slips available for overnight stays or for those coming in for dinner or for just a drink.  Check us out!  Hope to see you soon.

The Dream continues…STANSTOCK 2018.  Stanstock is back for the sixth consecutive year.  Stan Gibson, founder, has announced plans for Stanstock 2018: 

Festival Dates:  Saturday & Sunday, September 8 & 9, 2018

Location:  River Watch Restaurant & Marina, 207 Nanticoke Road, Essex, Maryland  21221. 

Schedule:  Gates open at 12noon both days. Close:  Saturday at 12midnight, Sunday at 10pm.

2 stages with continuous music

Artist line-up and ticket information will be announced in early 2018

Stanstock story:  We came together through the dream of Stan Gibson, a local musician, fan and compassionate humanitarian.  He created a Facebook page called, “Baltimore Bands from the 70's 80's 90's,” with the intention of bringing together musicians, fans, music venues and members of the vibrant golden age of LIVE music in the Baltimore Metro area.  With a little help from his friends, and over 8000 avid members, a virtual community was built, and continues to grow.  With the tremendous success of the Facebook page, Stan dreamed of bringing the online community together in a live music event.  In October 2013, our first annual event, the dream was realized and came to be known as STANSTOCK!   Stanstock patrons, musicians and volunteers continue to support two Baltimore-based charities by donating 100% of net proceeds to the Nicole Van Horn Trust Fund and Catch A Lift.  More importantly, all fundraising objectives have been exceeded year after year!  All musicians gather together and donate their time and talents to this worthy cause along with the all-volunteer staff who work on this project throughout the year.  Join us for STANSTOCK 2018!
