Reviews for Sportsman Marina and Dry Storage
Helpful people, 2016-06-28
Captain: , Virginia Beach VA (30)

Did a survey there 24 Jun. Sportsman team and sportsman services very helpful. Howvere lunch across the street was less than stellar. Waitress was rude, disrespectful and made the atmosphere suck. The food however was good.



Top shelf marina, 2014-05-20
Captain: , Orange Beach Alabama (90)

I keep two boats in this marina. The dry storage arrangements are second to none. Call ahead and they will put your boat in and provision it however you want; fuel, drinks, ice, ect. When you are done for the day they rinse the boat and flush the engines and put it up. The restaurant is very good as well as the new Tiki Hut bar. Cold drinks and reasonable prices. The restrooms and showers are very nice. The docks are old and need to be replaced.



Clean, busy and excellent restaurant, 2014-02-20
Captain: , Columbus OH (70)

We were comfortable with a two night stay. The facilities are well maintained and the staff is helpful and keep busy helping customers. The restaurant on sight is superior and patronized by the locals because of it.



Echo last review, 2010-05-15
Captain: , Plattsmouth, Nebraska (130)

I agree entirely with the last reviewer. Not someplace to visit unless you are intending on fishing. Facilities are fine, the resturant is excellent, crew is helpful. Strong current from the Gulf, lots of wakes even while tied up pretty deep in the marina. West MArine less than 2 miles away.



A fishing marina, 2009-10-15
Captain: , fairland (2653)

Not really for transients, in my opinion. Thigs must have changed as the staff wasn't particularly helpful, but the restaurant was very good. Exceptional restrooms. No response on the radio. Staff didn't know 50 amp from 100 amp service and they didn't know how wide the slips are. Very exposed to west winds. No cleats only massive pilings.



Great marina, but stay away from the restaurant, 2007-06-30
Captain: , Bay St. Louis, MS (734)

This is great facility, as far as marina services and facilities go. Very helpful staff. Only negative is the restaurant... worst seafood and service I have experienced in a long time. Notified the manager and she really couldn't care less.
