Operation (seasonal or year-round)

Additional info:


The approach is shallow, but periodic dredging seems to have helped. Favor an inbound route on the chart that crosses soundings for 9, 5, and 5 feet respectively. Some twin-screw skippers choose to pass through the area on one engine only, to minimize "squat" and mitigate forward thrust.

Reviews for Kentmorr Marina
Friendly Staff, 2016-08-28
Captain: , Glenwood, MD (385)

Finally went to Kentmorr Marina and Dirty Daves Tiki bar after many friends told us to check it out. We did. The entrance is a little tricky but we followed some larger boats that had obviously been there before. they claim to dredge the channel ever spring with a dept of 4.5 feet at MLW. The dock hands were super friemdly and helpful and very couteous. we ended up tyimg u[ to a bulkhead deep into the marina. We got there at 12:15 so grabbing a table outside was a little challenging, but inside the Kentmorr restaurant was no problem.

The tii bar and beach was cool. they had thatch roof cabanas and hammocks to swing in.. next time we will be sure to stay for the sunset which I am sure is spectacular. Great time hab by all!

Some of the best crab cakes anywhere. Went over for Sunday dinner. Very friendly and helpful docking staff. The place was clean and well kept. The crab cakes were fabulous as usual.

Basically a gravel yard with a dock down the middle., 2015-04-01

No amenities, just your basic slip. They charge a fortune for pretty much nothing.

The daily rate is now $2.00 a ft. Only 100% increase from what's listed

An underappreciated little gem, 2014-06-11
Captain: , Bear, DE (70)

We've been to Kentmorr Marina three times in the past year. It's not for everyone, but for what we like, it's an underappreciated little gem that we plan to keep returning to.

What it's not is a glitz/glam marina (like others on Kent Island). There's no Olympic sized swimming pool or Hilton-Hotel styled clubhouse.

What it is is unpretentious, friendly, low-key, relaxing, friendly people, some of the very best food and views on the Chesapeake Bay.

The marina structure itself is just average. Fixed piers, reasonably roomy, in good condition. There are many commercial crab and other fishing boats, but to us that just adds to the charm and genuine character of the place. We've always found that the boatowners here are very friendly, always willing to lend a hand when docking, and engage in warm conversation (and a cold beer) afterwards. There may be signs of 'no pets' at the restaurant, but we've seen a number of very friendly dogs on the docks.

The restaurant has absolutely fabulous, delicious food. Again, the atmosphere is unpretentious and low-key, it looks (and is) a 'crab house'. But the dishes we've had there have all been consistently amazing. Crab is pretty much crab when you steam it, but what they do with it is pretty special. The crab-a-mole (crab+guacamole) dip is addictive, as are the other crab dip and the 'crab pretzel'. The crab cakes are among the top 3 we've ever had on the bay. The rockfish are often caught that afternoon by the fishing boats. It's worth coming to the restaurant just for the deserts alone, which are homemade and just amazing (the banana cream pie and coconut cream pie are especially delicious).

There's a Tikki Bar and a sandy beach area with lounge chairs, hammocks, and umbrellas. The views are great, just south of the Bay Bridge and almost directly across from Annapolis. The sunsets are particularly picturesque.

There don't seem to be that many transient boaters staying the night, which is good for us because it means a better chance of getting a slip. Many boats seem to come to dock at the restaurant just for a meal, and added to the land crowds at mealtimes can result in a 1-2 hour wait for a table. This is one of the few places where it's worth it. Get a drink, hang out at the dock while you wait for your table and watch the sunset and the fishing boats return, and then have one of the most satisfying meals you'll ever have on the Bay.

It's not a place for 'boat clubs' to come for posh luxury, but for a down-to-Earth, friendly, relaxing experience with some of the best food on the Bay, it can't be beat.

Marina versus Restaurant, 2013-06-24
Captain: , Londontowne, MD (470)

The marina itself is nothing special; largely working watermen and their deadrise Bay boats... but it also has a covered shed, haul-out, etc. and it isn't expensive. On the other hand, the approach is shallow enough to intimidate many. (We saw approx 4.5' at a charted sounding of 5' -- an hour before low HIGH tide.) They may or may not answer the radio, but dock hands on weekends are friendly and willing.

The restaurant is locally well-known, a fun destination with inside, patio, outside, and tiki seating... good food, and service... and their own beach with great sunset views. In other words, worth a visit if in the area or passing through.

But that's pretty much the only reason to go there.

Nice place to stop forlLunchwhile out on the water. Very good crab cakes...

Bare Bones but Worth the Price, 2011-05-30
Captain: , Cleveland (2029)

For $1 foot (includies electric and water), I don't think Kentmorr can be beat. It's right off of the ICW. There are indeed many charter fishing boats but it was not an issue for us. Nice beach with hammocks and swings to watch the sunset.

Showers could use a good cleaning or perhaps a new coat of paint. Dock master helpful in getting us in. Check depth before you come in as our draft is 3.8 ft - no issues but it is shallow coming in.

Working marina, 2010-11-26
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

We stayed over one night and won't come back. This is a working marina with fishermen dominating the scene. We were directed to a slip between two charter fishing boats -- both of whom were in the process of cleaning their catch -- wow, what a smell. The next morning we were awoken by their engines at first light. Not fun. Nice beach -- where we watched a cruise ship heading up the Bay in the morning which is the only redeeming charm.

restaurant - good, 2010-09-17
Captain: , Chesapeake Bay MD (495)

We have been coming here for over ten years. In the last year food has really been upgraded to "above average". The desserts are great. On several days they have all you can eat crabs.
Nice beach.
Pets are not allowed off boat per signs.

Nice lunch stop, 2009-06-09
Captain: , Chesapeake Bay, MD (311)

Came to this place for lunch in my Center Console. Watch the tide coming in as it is pretty shallow at low tide. Nice looking crabs at the rest. and they have a nice beach/bar. We did not stay at the Marina but looked well run. No deep draft boats
