We docked our boat overnight and the folks here hooked us up with Doug - who brought us a golf cart to tool around town. The restaurant/bar next door was also excellent. I had a nice juicy oyster basket. Yum.

We have been drawn to Colonial Beach numerous times over the last 25 years. We used to take our boat to the marina for overnight visits and fishing on the Potomac River. The restaurant there was traditionally good. Last year I had a wonderful crab cake sandwich. We love the atmosphere of the restaurant and the marina is always a... More
