Reviews for Lock 12 Marina Finch and Chubb - Closed
Closed Permanently?, 2016-06-28
Captain: , Lexington, Kentucky (160)

The facility was sold in bankruptcy. The purchaser has not reopened it as of June 24, 2016.

Finch and Chubb is Closed for season and for sale, 2015-01-22
Captain: , Lake George (25)

Outstanding value for a waterfront restaurant, tavern and Inn with 16 slips.

Finch & Chubb is open, 2014-06-06
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (241)

Wobbly wooden floating docks with no electric or water. The restaurant is the saving grace - food is good and reasonably priced. They should be offering a dock & dine special where the dockage is free if you have dinner in the restaurant. The other amenities are there - restroom, showers, laundry & adequate at best. The marine store was not open. The whole place is in need of "sprucing up" and a lot of paint. Next time I would stay on the face docks south of the lock - more convenient to the town & free.

Finch & Chubb, 2014-06-01
Captain: , Colchester, VT (120)

Restaurant is good and they have made the old docks available. But no power or water. They did give me a discount on the slip fees, but I still paid S1.50 a foot. Way too much. staying on the town dock makes much more sense, but I was south bound and got there too late to get into the lock.

Finch & Chub Open, 2014-05-26
Captain: , Unionville, IN (221)

Finch & Chub is open under new owners. We stayed here 5/24/2014.
Resturant is serving excellent food. New owers are enthusiastic and eager to please. Tranient docking for about 5 boats. Apparently no electricity or water, although we didn't need or ask for either. Restrooms, showers, laundry and hotel rooms available. Whitehall marina is a seperate operation, now closed and for sale.

Sorry This Marina Closed, 2013-01-25
Captain: , Edgewater (321)

This was a great place to stay before entering Lake Champlain. Great restaurant too. I here he is relocating to the west side with another marina. We are heading up the canal in May if anyone has any updates, thanks!

nice restaurant, 2012-06-27
Captain: , Marlboro Yacht Club, Marlboro NY (515)

we stayed here when Finch and Chubb was in business, food was awesome and poeple were very nice. Marina was in good condition and had everything available.

Bought by the same man who bought the Whitehall Marina., 2012-06-02
Captain: , Bainbridge Island, WA (343)

He's going to consolidate services on the NY side, but plans to open the restaurant again. I was told that he recognizes it has a good reputation, and would like to continue that.

Marina closed, 2012-05-23
Captain: , colchester vt (20)

Lock 12 marina has just been bought and is closing . No mast removal available at this time.Services will be moved across the canal to whitehall marina.As of may 21 2012

Pumpout no Problem, 2011-08-10
Captain: , Cleveland (2062)

We stopped specifically for a pumpout only and it was not an issue ($10). They weren't busy though. Docks for pumpout and gas were the same so if they were full I can see why they wouldn't want to bother.

Pump-out subject to marina business, 2011-07-29
Captain: , Green Cove Springs (230)

We phoned to ask for a pump-out and were told that marina was pretty full and he didn't have the capacity so no. Sorry.

Great Meal!, 2011-06-28
Captain: , Huron, OH (176)

We stopped at Lock 12 Marina on our way to Lake Champlain. The staff was very helpful. Facilities are clean, a bit primitive but clean with plenty of hot water in the showers. The high point of the stop was dinner at the Finch & Chubb Inn. Good wine, excellent veal and chicken, and a delicious dessert.

Excellent Service & Amenities, 2011-01-30
Captain: , Coles Point, VA (777)

Excellent, friendly service, down-to-earth people, good restaurant and bar with above average food and service and outstanding views. Very clean showers! Gas and Diesel. Hookups and pump out. Good basics in the ship's store.

Restaurant great, marina maybe not, 2010-07-23
Captain: , New Bern, NC (289)

We were somewhat disappointed given the reviews and advertising we had seen. The ships%u2019 store is not very well stocked, the dock personnel seemed somewhat disinterested. The restrooms and showers fall under the rustic classification. However the pump out did work really well and the Finch & Chubb restaurant did serve us an excellent meal. If other choices are available we are not sure we would stay here again. We give it a strong average rating, not excellent.

A great Stop, 2010-01-02
Captain: , Poughkeepsie Yacht Club (137)

Everything is just right, an all in one marina.
Very good docks, good bathrooms, and showers, all amenities.
I never had a bad meal in the resturant, always perfect.

Great stop, EXCELLENT Restaurant, 2009-07-20
Captain: , Whitehall (50)

The Finch & Chubb Restaurant at Lock 12 Marina was excellent.Highly reccomend stopping.

FREE Dock!, 2009-07-03
Captain: , Key Largo (5304)

Walkable to Groceries, laundry, small town and museum hurting for your business. Free electirc and water, 48 hour limit.

Great Stop., 2009-05-30
Captain: , Grove, OK (337)

Stopped here and left the boat for a couple of weeks. Here is an excerpt from my blog about the food at Finch and Chubb:Well, a good report on Finch and Chubb is was absolutely wonderful. The Admiral had beef medalions and I had salmon in dill sauce. The place was clean, the service great and who would have thunk such a place in Whitehall existed! Ray said Whitehall was a community of about 4000 with about 3200 unemployed. You could never have guessed that from the good food and service we experienced at Finch and Cubb.

Of course, Ray is the dockmaster and one of the chef's at Finch and Chubb. The food was truly worth stopping for and the marina was low key and had pretty much everything we needed.

Excellent restaurant, great food. Marina services good with laundry, just below the lock.
