Reviews for The Island Boatyard and Marina
Nice yard, poor docks, 2017-08-13
Captain: , Essex, CT (226)

As stated in AC details and on web site we planned for floating docks. We were with 4 other boats and all put stern in on a fixed dock. Made it tough getting a 75lb dog off a swim platform and up ladder. Nice marina facilities, but would not be back if we were not guaranteed a floating dock.

Quiet, calm location. Very helpful staff., 2016-09-28
Captain: , Essex, CT (10)

We stayed one night on Sep 24th. Booking and confirmation through Dockwa was smooth as always. The marina is in a very calm cove so while the channel is narrow and shallow it is easy to approach and dock, even at low tide. The dock staff were extremely helpful in docking, electric hookup and even providing a tour of the island in the marina van. The bathrooms were very clean and up to date. Since we were late in the season the pool was already closed down so it was probably quieter than a peak summer weekend but the onsite restaurant was extremely busy all day and evening with both boaters and others who arrived by car. There was also a large wedding reception being held on site which provided for entertainment close to the docks without being intrusive.
Overall, a great night away at a great off season rate. We'll definitely be back!

Weekend Visit aug12 to 14th, 2016-08-18
Captain: , Patchogue (10)

First time visiting with friends that have visited there for years. Our stay at the marina was extraordinary and fun. Grounds were clean, facilities kept up. Had a great time and would return again next year. I was disappointed that the pool was closed for most of the day on Saturday, it was very hot and wished that did not happen to all of us.

Our mini vacation, 2016-08-18
Captain: , Southampton, NY (10)

First off, we have stayed at the Island Boatyard and Marina several times and have never had a bad experience. James and his Staff have always been cordial and they go out of their way to make sure you have all you need. They will shuttle you anywhere you want to go on the island; The "Salt" restaurant on the premises is a great place for lunch and dinner and the "Shipwreck" bar is a great afternoon hangout, with great bartenders and a pool close by. You can also eat there as well, while listening to live music. All in all, it's a great little "mini vacation" spot!

Great place, 2016-08-17

Last min res and a great stay, 2016-08-16
Captain: , Lindenhurst (10)

Made a reservation at 2PM and arrived after 7. The dockmaster wasn't there which I knew in advance but the slips were easily located and everything was as he said it would be.

Bathroom and shower were clean.

Restaurant was great.

Would go back.

Great place, Chris the bartender is the best.

Great Stop, 2016-08-08
Captain: , Westport CT (484)

We checked in for two nights with Osprey Moon and could not have had a better visit. Dockmaster and staff were very helpful getting in with a strong cross wind and a tight spot. Great view out over West Neck Harbor. Pool was imaculate with very handy, funky bar next to it. They have a shuttle service that will take you anywhere on the island. Staff at Salt, the on-site restaurant was great as well...they found a table for us late on a Sat. night without a reservation. Lastly but most important they have a great field for the dogs! Will definetly come back.

Great place to stay!!!, 2014-02-21
Captain: , Shelter Island (42)

The staff are extremely helpful they will give you a ride to anywhere on the island. The Restaurant Salt with their outside shipwreck bar was the perfect place to relax with a coattail. With live music too! View of West Neck harbor! Had a very nice pool also. Can%u2019t wait to go back.

Great Marina and friendly Staff, 2013-10-01
Captain: , Long Branch, NJ (73)

I had engine problems so I read the reviews here and ducked into this marina for repairs. Great people and knowledgeable staff. They repaired a clogged SS riser by blowing it out with a power washer and out came bits of a plastic bag. They reinstalled the riser and changed the exhaust hose and I was on my way. Although it was labor day weekend, they were fair in their labor and parts rate. Dock staff and restaurant staff are great as well. I highly recommend this marina.

Going back, 2013-01-02
Captain: , East Patchogue (57)

We had a Y.C rendezvous there in August 2012. The place was clean, quiet and great marina staff very accommodating to any of our needs including a drop of and pickup in town. We are going back this summer again.

When first built, this was a first rate spot; then fell on some hard times. James, one of the owners, is maing great strides in reviving the place. Good restaurant, wine tasting room, new fuel dock. A very nice, quiet place to stay.

Great experience, 2012-08-30
Captain: , Stamford (130)

The deckhands are great and amazingly accomodating, including a ride into town. They were always available, always friendly and made great recommendations of what to do.

The restaurant Salt is great, we ate here twice and both times were very happy. Great selection, the ribs were very good and very messy! The fish was buttery and fresh.

There is a wine tasting place next door, very fun. We bought more wine than we should have!!

What a Find!, 2012-07-16
Captain: , Island Heights (340)

We chose this marina as a friend lives nearby on the island. What a great spot. 'Salt' is a great new restaurant. The Shipwreck Bar is great for cocktails, oysters, clams and live music. Oh, and then there is the wine tasting. Will be back and maybe as a destination and not a stopover!!!

SALT - New Great Restaurant at Island Boatyard!, 2012-05-14
Captain: , Shelter Island, NY (114)

Island Boatyard has a great new restaurant this season! Fun decor, indoor and outdoor seating. Bar has large framed B&W photos of historic Shelter Island and boatyard owner from 50 years ago. Unpretentious fare which is a welcome relief on Eastern Long Island! If not staying in slip, easy to dinghy in from anchorage in West Harbor. I intend to be back many times this summer!

Very competent boatyard, 2011-09-17
Captain: , Hampton, VA (2573)

We landed here by dinghy while anchored in Smith Cove. While the marina appeared shut down for the season, the yard was very active. To get permission to leave our dinghy while touring Shelter Island, I wandered through the boatyard and talked with the staff and manager. I was impressed by the thoughful work being done with what appeared to be high standards. I'd definitely consider them should I need help with a problem.....

Nice Marina, 2011-08-26
Captain: , Marco Island, FL (1145)

The marina was great. and the staff were wonderful.
Our problem - we were too big for the slip. Our boat is 50' with a 16' beam - We stuck out about 10' and only had about 6" on each side of the pilings. There are no finger piers so you have to go stern in.

Good Place to Stop, 2011-08-07
Captain: , Denton, TX (435)

Family owned and operated. Not a lot of transient places so call to confirm. Friendly folks. Provided a ride into town for grocery shopping. Took credit card. They told us of plans for facility upgrade so check back with them. Good stop!!

great marina , good clean facilities! a must see stop!

Great deal for those on the hook, 2009-06-09
Captain: , Fort Lauderdale (228)

They offer use of their bath/shower/pool/laundry and dinghy dock for a modest fee. Great if you are anchored in West Neck Harbor. They allowed us to keep our bikes on shore as well.
When we lost an impeller on our generator, we had it repaired by them in less than a day.
