Due to conditions that are out of our control at the marina where we are located, we very regretfully announce that we have closed for the season as of the end of business yesterday. Our entire staff is disappointed that our season has drawn to an early close.

We thank all of our wonderful customers and friends who have supported us this season through very unusual times with Covid-19. We are grateful to all of you and look forward to a blowout summer of 2021.

Please join us at Scotch Plains Tavern, our restaurant in Essex, as the live music, outdoor dining and good times continue.

With waterfront dining and New England American Cuisine, The Back Porch Restaurant is everyone’s favorite summer dining destination. Join us for weekly specials, Happy Hour (Wednesday through Friday) and live entertainment. Conveniently located in Old Saybrook overlooking the Connecticut River. We look forward to seeing you soon!
