    Richard Russo 11 months ago
    This place was great to us! We ended up here after having a mechanical issue on our trawler that resulted in a tow to the marina. Facilities were top notch and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our mechanic, Bill, was excellent (and a really nice guy). He immediately began diagnosing the issue and made the repairs so that we could get on our way as soon as possible. If i'm ever back along the CT coast, I'll certainly be stopping back by.

    We have nothing but great things to say about this place. Over the last three years or so, they have done spectacular work. Topsides, rigging, regular maintenance, you name it. A great crew.

    Great people! Our starter motor went out and left us stranded just a mile from the marina, Mark in the ships store helped us order a new one and had it waiting for us! Thank you! I highly recommend this marina! We're putting it on our regular stop list for next year.

Dockside Restaurant

This seasonal marina-side restaurant boasts some of the freshest seafood around with outdoor seating, stunning sunsets, and live summer events. Enjoy a daily selection of tuna steak, swordfish steak, scrod, sole, scallops, and salmon prepared specifically to your liking; or, indulge in one of the house specialties, which include lobster pot pie, baked stuffed shrimp, honey lemon salmon, and more. An excellent spot with a casual atmosphere and high-quality ingredients, Dockside Seafood and Grill is open for both lunch and dinner during the season.

Thimble Islands

Located in and around the harbor of Stony Creek, the Thimble Islands are an archipelago of small islands that have been a popular resort destination since the mid-1800s. Visit the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge, paddle around the islands in a canoe or kayak, explore the Stony Creek Quarry, or sample artisanal beers at the Stony Creek Brewery’s taproom.

Stony Creek Brewery

Home of “aggressively laid back beer,” Stony Creek Brewery is the perfect spot to enjoy high quality artisanal brews or a specialty cocktail while watching a gorgeous Connecticut sunset. With plenty of outdoor and indoor seating and regular live events, and even an onsite food truck serving up signature wood-fired pizza, you can’t go wrong with a trip to this popular local haunt.

Branford Bait & Tackle

Come by land or sea to stock up on fresh bait, rods, reels, tackle, and more at Branford Bait and Tackle. A local institution known for excellent service, reliability, and quality products, the anglers in your crew will love swinging by to stock up and talk shop. Leave it to these folks to make sure you have a great day out on the water.
