Boat Moorings at Restaurants?


A reader writes:

I have seen articles on LoHud about boating on the Hudson and about dining on the Hudson. I was wondering if you are aware of any dining options on the lower Hudson (Westchester, Rockland or Putnam) that provide guest moorings for lunch or dinner guests? (Perhaps a future feature, b4 the summer’s out.)

Well, readers? Any suggestions?

  1. A colleague sent me an eamail with some suggestions. Here they are:

    — Civilies in Haverstraw
    – Hudson Boat Club in west Haverstraw at the Haverstraw Marina (they usually have live entertainment Friday and Saturday and karoke on Thursday).
    The Newburgh waterfront has TONS of restaurants and you can get a guest tie-up if you eat at Torches. Other Newburgh restaurants include the Blue Martini, Havana 59 and the River Grill. Some offer entertainment on the weekends.

    Cold Spring: You can tie up at the boat club (complementary — just sign in). Only trouble: They can’t accept boats over 32 feet in length and it gets really crowded on the weekends. Otherwise, it’s great. You can tie up and walk into Cold Spring for your choice of restaurant.

    1. Croton:
    Crystal Bay. There are docks right there. We take a small boat, though

    2. Sunset Cove in Tarrytown – can accommodate only small vessels. Tie up is free if you can get your boat in ther.

    3. Striped Bass in Tarrytown (of course!)

    I’m sure there are more, but I’ll have to think about it some more…
