Port Washington Dock and Dine
Best Times: Memorial Day weekend through September 30.
Just a short trip from Manhattan a dock and dine cruise to Port Washington, NY and Louie's Oyster Bar and Grille is a great way to enjoy lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch. Louie's has been a Port Washington landmark for over 100 years and today still retains that Manhasset Bay vibe. In fact, Capt. Steve's family used to own the shipyard a few doors down from Louie's - the famous A&R Marshall Marine.
Advance reservations as Louie's are required.
Departures are from Pier 25, Manhattan, Jersey City, NJ, or Worlds Fair Marina, Queens.
