I used to have my boat in this marina, but no longer. The facilities are very nice, but service I felt lacks. This is one of the largest marinas in the State, certainly in Buffalo. But the services aren't enough for a marina this size....More

We made our first trip of the season to this easily accessible waterfront stop. The restaurant has lost their lease after this season, but nothing has really changed there. Obviously they are not investing in the operation and it shows. Just suck the money out...More
